"No Solicitors or Mormans"

It's been another great week here in the freezing North Pole. This week though it's been really nice. It might sound crazy, but anything above zero and sunny is really nice. Things are slowly starting to melt and get warm. It's good and bad. It's easier to be outside and nicer weather for the work, but there will be a lot more dogs outside instead of inside soon. Elder Bunch and I have been working our tails off trying to contact everyone we can on the membership records for the ward, and we've also been tracting quite a bit. The other day we were knocking on doors when we came to a house with a sign that said "Keep Out: No solicitors or Mormans." I thought it was pretty funny, and it was spelled wrong. According to her neighbor, she had a gun, and the police had been over there before. When we walked up to the sign in her drive way that said "keep out" on our way back down the street, she opened the door and started screaming and yelling at us, and Elder Bunch just booked it and left me hanging in the driveway. She asked (yelled at) me if I could see the signs, and I just said, "Yeah that's why we're walking away." I was laughing about it, and thanked Elder Bunch for leaving me there alone. It was funny--he was laughing too.

North Pole is a blast, and we have some great experiences. On Wednesday we taught the Restoration to a lady named Melanie . She had been reading in the Book of Mormon a chapter that we had left before. She loved what we taught, and we will be teaching her again hopefully this week. We're excited to keep teaching her. The ward is still coming together, and each week more people are called to different callings. It's been fun to work with the members and get to know everyone. We've started to build up some great relationships, and the members here are great. Hope you all have a great week!
