February. Whoa, how strange is that? Everyone, it doesn't feel like it should be this far into the month already. Or feel that I am going home so soon. Its warming up here a little bit I guess. This morning was really chilly though. We woke up really early and did our workouts then we went and did a memorial hike near a mountain where we live. Its not a very long hike at all but its was really cool. We timed it just right so when we got to the very top, the sun rose. It was such a beautiful sunrise and it helped to understand the gospel and perspective of life. I know that's a little much, but the hike travels right over the town of Clifton and everything just looked so small. Like a little model someone made or something. Just a wonderful morning we have had here already. This world and life is just so amazing and simple when we break it all down. When we get past the busyness of the world and the craziness we have to deal with on a daily basis, This life is easy, the choices we have to make are basic, the Gospel is evident in so many ways.
An awesome miracle we had this week was being able to meet our 2 new investigators. Alex and Cheryl, are great people. We met with them and had a great discussion in another members home. Alex had a ton of questions, a more outspoken kind of guy, and then Cheryl, was sweet and humble. Taking the answers we had given them, and then right there, applying them into her life. They have 3 small children and most of the members here in Morenci know who they are. She works at the daycare center where everyone drops their kids off so they can work out. Not the kids, the parents. So we are so excited to be teaching them and just get to know them. It was a true miracle to get them as investigators. I am very thankful, and Cheryl came to church this last Sunday. Alex was unable to because of the crazy work schedule. But that is something we will have to work around.
Not to much else to report on this week. Things are going very well for us over here though. The work will push forward, it always will, no matter what the circumstances.
Kinda sad I didn't get to meet Mitt Romney like some others back in my home ward. But its OK, I heard he is coming up here to Clifton next.
I love you all so much.
