Preparing for the final week (from jan 6, 2014)

Hey everyone!
How are y'all?  Things are wet here in the Waldoboro area.  Today the temperature is oddly warm into the 40's which makes us very worried about tonight because we will be driving down to Portland and Manchester and it is supposed to drop in temperature, which means all this rain that we have will be ice and it will not be good.  So hopefully that won't happen.  Anyway, I guess you all what to know what is happening here, and unfortunately not as much as one would hope for.  it has been a bit of a dismal week, but that is not how this week will be.  This week we have MLC and an exchange and transfer calls.  So saturday we will be finding out if one of us is leaving.  Which one of us will be.  And we will get to know a little bit of what will happening. 
So monday we had a wonderful FHE with a member in the Branch it was really good and we re-watch the 1st presidency christmas devotional.  because when we tried to watch it at the church the 1st time we couldn't because something was wrong with our projector.  It was really good to be able to watch the full thing. 
Tuesday was a very different day. We went and taught a lesson to Linda and Arnez, then went over to the Duffy's where we set up her computer and I was able to watch grandma's funeral.  It was so good.  I loved it!  It was odd to watch, but at the same time really good.  Sister Duffy watched it with us and she loved it as well.  The flowers were very pretty. Afterwards we went back to missionary mode and we went and saw Melanie and did some more service for her.  We were cleaning out some drawers and we found amouse nest, so stopped and left that for her guy to take care of. :) I totally forgot that it was New Years eve so we accidentally crashed a members new years eve party.  They didn't care and actually were really glad that we stopped by.  It was good.  There is a little girl in the family who is about 6 and she came up to us and said, "There is a girl here who doesn't know anything about the gospel would you like to teach her?"  I said of course, but what does she want. So she went and asked the girl there if she wanted to learn.  I think she would have said sure, because nobody can say no to this little girl except for her family, if not for the little girls brother saying not right now.  It was really funny though and super cute. :) 
For some reason New Years people still party here, because there were not very many people on the roads.  We drove down to Topsham for district meeting and then we came to damariscotta to teach some lessons.  2 of the 3 were not there. -.-  That is always a bummer, but at least we could go and teach the third lady.  It was quick because we also went to young womens/mens for a new years part thing and had pizza and played games. :)  it was great.  In district meeting we talked about object lessons and we were asked to  bring some.  Do you have any favorite object lessons?  Send them to me so I can use them. :) 
Thursday we got grounded.  We had a mission wide shut down on cars.  Which ws silly because where we were we had no snow.  We texted the district leader and then the zone leaders-since Sister Huefner is a STL and can do that and then we waited until our car was ungrounded.  We ventured out for a bit, band then our branch mission leader called us and told us we were grounded at 1.  So we helped Sister Brooks with things.  We put up wall paper and made an accordian door.  It all looks really good.  I've never put up wallpaper before, and I'm not sure I like putting it up.  It is just as messy if not more messy than paint.  But we did it. :)  That was pretty much our day since the weather stopped us from doing our usual missionary work.  :/  Oh well. 
Friday we did our weekly planning.  It took a while and then we went to the seversons.  They are so funny.  And sometimes silly.  We always have a good time there, sometimes it is hard to teach them though because they get on tangents so  easily, but we are still working on them.  We then took the precarious drive down to Walpole aka bristol.  -Walpole is like a subdivision of Bristol.  There we had a member meal.  And it was good.  Homemade chicken noodle soup. :)  And homemade bread.  We had dinner with the Hovances and Sister Hovance told us how they met.  Seriously, it would be a perfect movie.  That's all I'm saying.  it would be perfect. 
Saturday much of our plans got re-arranged, but eventually we got it all figured out and went to the Royers to do some service.  We helped feed their animals and helped them unfreeze some buckets and things like that.  It was really good.  Not much else exciting happened that day. 
Sunday was good and sad.  None of our investigators came due to some unforseen circumstances that came up. :/ so that was really disappointing.  But we got visiting teaching assignments :)  Mainly they are people who they don't know anything about and need to know who they are and they need us to find them.  So that is what we did sunday.  We had a member meal with a family and then found all the people in there area that have been hiding.  One really has been hiding, she hasn't been to church in a really long time and the other family had moved!  Yep.  And they have been on the records for a couple of years and according to the people who live there now they have been there for a while.  So here is my admonition to all of you when you move, move your record please. :)
I think that is about all I can say right now.  I love you all and I want you to know that I pray for all of you!
Love always and Forever,
Sister Lundahl
