What in the name of arctic cold fronts is going on?!

So if it's any indication of how the weather was, this is what we woke up to this morning:

Yep, it SNOWED! It's all gone now, though. But yeah, it was really cold this week, I am NOT used to it. 

Anyway, what happened....... 
Monday we went out with Maria and Jose and visited one of maria's old friends, Renee. It's a guy, fyi. He is super cool. He was taught by missionaries before, a long time back. He has a daughter named Moncerat (moncy for short) who moved here recently from Mexico city. Then there is a guy there who lives there a lot named Gerardo, and he's a HOOT. We had a good time. Tuesday was district meeting, which went well. The sisters coioked us lunch, which was ham and provolone sliders with jello for dessert. It was delicious. Wednesday we froze outside looking for people who weren't home (I think they go into hibernating) and also taught Luis one of the new member discussions with Bro. Coy. Speaking of which, they are moving to AZ in December, I should have him look y'all up. Thursday was about the same. I nthe evening they had an orchestra concert/dinner, and we volunteered to help serve the food. We made taco salads for 1100+ people. It was fun! I was the cake boss, so I cut and served a LOT of cake. My dress pants were covered in frosting. Friday was another pretty slow day,  but we got homemade chicken soup from the Hulbert family, which was great. Saturday we saw some more people, which was nice. Lerin, the kitchen manager at TGI Friday's who we have been trying to see for months, was finally home. He has a 7-month old daughter. It's weird, because I remember when his wife was pregnant with her, and now she's almost walking. I've been here a while. 

Then sunday came along, and we woke up with a phone call from the English elders asking for help with the BAPTISMAL SERVICE they just got organized the day before. They had baptized a 16 year old kid named dusting a few weeks ago, and yesterday Dustin got to baptize his 2 younger brothers and his mother. It was awesome. SO in the past 5 weeks we have had 9 baptisms in the ward. Everyone is very excited. Plus we had our part member family come to church unannounced, which was a nice surprise!
Well, that was my week! Pretty slow, but also pretty awesome too! Hoping to see some miracles this week!
