If you get the pun then congratulations! Sadly, I didn't make it up haha. We've reached negative degrees people! It was -4 when we got up yesterday morning! This past week we've been able to meet a lot more of the members from Cottonwood! The Ford's are the cutest old couple ever and gave us a bag of snacks before we left. They both served missions in their youth and have served a few as a couple. Sister Ipsen is so nice and has an adorable two year old who loves sacrament meeting because every time he screams "I see the bread!" Sister Stanley is the young women's president and she is the best! She's so fun and bubbly. We're actually going out to lunch with her in about an hour. :) Zone training was awesome! I always love when a bunch of missionaries get together for a meeting because the spirit is so strong and everyone builds each other up. :) We talked about faith, how to extend better commitments, and the Book of Mormon! We have chat back at the trail center! Since it's dead season we have less tours so now we get to go in the back room on the computers and help people who go to Mormon.org with questions they need answered. I haven't done it since the MTC and I'm glad we're doing it again because I love it! Shane came to church yesterday!!! I can't remember if I've talked about him before but he is the coolest dude ever. He's bald and looks like a tough guy and we were honestly intimidated the first time we met him but he is the sweetest person ever! A real softie. :) He stayed for the first two hours and afterwards texted us and thanked us so much saying he really enjoyed it. We are meeting with him some time this week! Here's a funny story to end this email: When it snows a lot you get a lot of snowbanks along the side of the road. Every time I get in and out of the car it's a struggle! One time I slipped and fell on the snowbank and was laughing so hard I couldn't get up for a solid five minutes. The end. :) Love, Sister Irwin P.S. It's the abominable snow man!!!! This has to be a world record! (We didn't build it we just saw it and had to take a picture)
We had to say goodbye to the Deurksen's and the Ellis'! :( I'm going to miss these oldies but goodies!
