Snowed in, flat tire and teaching about Lehi

Woo!! Week 3 of training Elder Sanford!!!

He is doing great!!! He and I get along very well together!!! We each teach differently but we both realize that how the other teaches is how we want to learn how to teach! I teach using objects and analogies. He teaches using questions! I need to learn how to ask better questions! So, I will be learning that from him!!!

So Monday we had a snow storm!!!  We got 14.5 inches Monday February 1st, 2016. On top of the 6 inches from the day before. Due to the amount of snow, we got parked at our dinner appointment. (parked means we can't drive anywhere except home IF we feel safe about it) and Elder Sanford being from CA and I from TX we don't like driving in the snow a whole lot. Luckily the Fellows (a terrific family) live close by to where we were having dinner and let us sleep at their house! Tuesday we had 12 MORE inches of snow!! So, were parked the WHOLE DAY! We stayed at the fellows again that night. Wednesday morning the roads were clear so we felt comfortable driving home! 

On Friday we ran over a nail!!! 
Elder Sanford just took hold and did it so I took pictures!!! 

Our dinner appointment had a family emergency and left for Utah- so we went and got sushi from King Supers!!! Yeah Sushi!!!
The possible investigators that we have are doing well!
Tina is from a family of members and has grown up in the church. She is used to having Home and Visiting Teachers come over so she has asked us for those! Yeah!

The Kendricks are still the Kendricks! But we went over to their house on Thursday and shoved their driveway (or what little snow was left). They had a neighbor over (Erick Elder  yea his last name is Elder!) Karen asked us to shovel their front stairs because it was covered in snow up to the door! So we did!

David Kendrick is a talker :) so Elder Sanford went and talked with him (when David talks he carries the whole conversation) so I was able to talk with Mr. Elder! We talked about his religion (Decides of Christ) and we also talked about the Book of Mormon. He asked, " So the people in the book came after Jesus Christ right?" I explained to him that Lehi and his family traveled from Jerusalem about 600 years before Christ's birth. He asked "How did they get there" So I shared with him that they came by a boat that they had built! He also asked how the Aztecs and Mayans fit into the book. I shared that they are decedents of Lehi and his children! 

The work keeps growing but no fruit has been ripened that we have found to pick yet!

I love you all!

-Elder Mackin
