Waiting for the blizzard

Most exciting moment of the week?
We aren't getting transferred!   It isn’t very often that a trainer and new missionary get to stay together after the training period is over.  We thought for sure I would be transferred so we waited for the call all day on Saturday.  It never came!  No more trainer,  just senior and junior companion.
We got a text from the zone leaders last night saying, “You made it another round!”

Progress or meetings with Investigators:
Our investigator is doing great! She has a baptismal date. We got to know the Less Actives we met better. We found two more potentials and one of them I had a dream about his house before.

Tell us about some of the time you have spent with members this week:
We've had a lot of awesome times with members but I am going to write in a letter in more detail about my week.
Awkward moments:
So yesterday we were out tracting and we knocked on this door and heard a lady inside say "Who is it?" and automatically I yelled at the top of my lungs "SISTER MISSIONARIES FOR THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS!" and then she said "Oh.... I'm not interested..."
Then were walking away from a house and their driveway was pure ice and I forgot to bring my ice shoe things and my feet slipped out from under me and Sister Bee barely caught me. It took five minutes for me to get my footing enough to walk away from the door. It was like straight off of While You Were Sleeping. 
**We sent Whitney and Sister Bee some ice grippers that go over their shoes because of all of their stories about sliding on people’s driveways.  They only work if you use them.

Whitney also found out that an investigator she and Sister Smedley worked with in Manchester was just baptized.  This was her response, “AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS SOOOOOOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I remember when we found him. He had a friend from high school who he was friends with on facebook who was Mormon and would post scriptures and quotes all the time. And now he is BAPTIZED!!!!!!”
This week a big storm is supposed to hit the east coast.  Right now they are forecasting 18 to 24 inches of snow in Augusta.  Hopefully the power doesn't go out but they are thinking that it might so President sent a message to everyone telling us to make sure we have enough water and food and told us that we are all going to be grounded tomorrow.  All transfers are being delayed until Thursday so storms can pass. 
I will try to write about my week in a letter tonight or while we are stuck in our apartment tomorrow.
Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
