Serving in Siberia

Hola Familia! Yes I received all of your letters last week. Theyve been sent to my old address but other sisters i know live there so i still get my mail. My current address is 3167 S Dorie Street (bottom) SLC UT 84106. I didnt have time to write yall back last week cause i was super sick. Yeah mom and dad if you could send me some more catalyn/thymex/whatever else thatd be great. I was sorry to hear that dad was so sick, hope hes better. Well this week has been freezing!! it hasnt been this cold in a while. It doesnt matter how many layers you wear, youre still going to be cold. I think last night it got down to -4 degrees outside. The high was 13 haha. So i think thats why i got sick but im better now. On friday we werent allowed to use the mission cars so we stayed home. It was so weird staying home all day. It feels like youre just wasting time haha but its all good So mom bad news. Remember how the dentist told me that i wouldnt need to get my wisdom teeth out?? Well i think he was wrong. Im pretty sure that they are growing in and NEED to come out. I talked to sister winn about that and she said that i DONT need to go home for that (i was kind of worried but so relieved when she said that) and that i just need to talk to you about what your preference on dentist would be over here so i can get it done here. So I dont know if you could research a person who could pull those for me out here. That would be great! For now its been giving me headaches so ive been taking ibuprofen but just let me know what you think. Also random but can you send me the recipe for lumpia in the mail this week? Ive been super craving it and some of the other missionaries in my zone asked if i could make some haha. :) This week has been good. Remember Ernesto who got baptized 2 weeks ago? Well we started teaching his aunt and 2 cousins and they all want to be baptized. So right now they are on date for Jan 26 :) Also last night for dinner we ate with some lady who speaks spanish but doesnt go to our branch. Her nephew came too. Hes a RM and the lady was clearly trying to set Sister Harris up with him haha super awkward. But she was really nice and wants to do missionary work. She says that she teaches english classes and usually charges a lot but that she is willing to have our investigators come for free! She also wants us to teach her neighbor family so thats really exciting. Yesterday at church we had 5 people come (Kimberly, Aileen, Yolanda, Roberto, and Giovanni). We were so excited! Kimberly is the little sister of one of the members in our ward. She really likes coming to church and wants to learn more so were going over to her sisters house tonight to have a lesson with her. Aileen is a friend of one of the members. Shes 12 and loves church and mutual. She even participated in Young Women in Excellence program a few weeks ago and gave a really good talk on integrity. We are just waiting for written parent permission so we can officially start teaching her the lessons. Yolanda and her two sons are the ones who are getting ready to be baptized! They are so great and loved church yesterday! Yolanda has a little 2 year old son (Angel) and he is so cute! Hes chubby and little but he has a man voice, he loved church too! Other than that things are good. Its supposed to be FREEZING this week and then we are supposed to get another huge snow storm the week after. AHH but we have the nicest neighbors. This guy Joe has been cleaning our car everyday and he helped us dig our car out when it got stuck on Friday :) Anyway thats about all for now. hope you have an amazing week!! Love you!
