Hello Family and Friends!! 
This week the greatest news ever came to our ears, but to let you wait in a little bit of suspense, I will go through the week so Monday you already know about, but we went later to the Orton to have FHE and it was really cool to see how they do it.  What they do is they have a question that they will ask everybody and then share feelings and a lesson and schedules and stuff like that.  It was interesting. 
Tuesday we went and taught our new investigator Allison.  She is 12 and the sweetest girl.  We taught her the restoration and used the Apostasy cups to help demonstrate it.  It was cool to see her understand it and then see the importance.  We are going to finish teaching her the restoration this week.  We then went dinner at S. Smith's house.  She is so sweet.  We helped her stack some wood and then she fed us Tia Pad stuff and it was delicious!!  Like really good.  I wanted to eat the whole thing!
Wednesday we had a snow day.   It was very sad because Wednesdays are usually the days we get to teach the most. We usually have apts. the whole day so we had to call and cancel all of them and figure out other things to do, like work on our visuals and stuff like that, because sister Vanderhoef still can't do very much lifting.  It was a little difficult.
Thursday though was fun because we had district meeting.  And while we were there we were talking and I asked Elder Lund if there was any new announcements from MLC or Mission leadership council.  He didn't really answer, but a little bit later come to find out at MLC they anounced that we can GO TO THE TEMPLE NOW!!!!!!! Every 6 months if we are in certain areas we can go to the temple.  Which is fantastic, because our area can go to the temple so we are trying to go in the next week because there is a possibility that one of us could be transferred. TEMPLE!!!  Side note,  you never really realize how much you love and need the temple until you can't go to one because it is too far.  so all of you at home, I challenge you to go to the temple every week, even to just sit outside and look at it, because it really is great.  And you never know how much you'll miss it until you can't go. 
Anyway, so the rest of that day had us going to a doctor's apt for sister Vanderhoef.  It was good.  Then we went to dinner at the Brignano's house and that was good because we are able to help her our and we showed her a really cool object lesson with 2 copies of the BOM.  What you do is you take them and interlock the pages in big chunks to show reading scriptures occasionally, then in little bits, so when you try to pull them apart in the big chunks it is easy, but small, it is impossible for them to pull you apart.  So when we read our scriptures daily we cannot be pulled from our savior.  We then taught chelsea later that night.
Friday, Weekly planning! we finished it all!  And then we went on exchange.  So I was sent to Hanover for the day.  It was fun, because the last time I was in Hanover was at the beginning of my mission and it was really odd to see things that I recognized, and to think that my last area was just 15 miles away.  That is close in new England terms.  It was really cool.  Especially since one of the investigators there knows a family in South Royalton.  That was crazy!
Saturday I was still in Hanover, but it was still good because we were able to do 12 week and I was able to see some more ways to use Family History.  We then came home and I had a package.  Full of awesome stuff!  I was so excited!!  Everything has basically already been used to some degree or another.  :)
We then had a meal with a member and it was great.  She is super funny and we always have a good time with her.. It is S. McCarthy.
Sunday was great.  We had a goal to get 6 people to sacrament meeting, and boy did we try.  We called people and texted, and stopped by people's houses for preparation, and in the end, one investigator came to church.  It was Chelsea the girl who is getting baptized on the 22.  We were so glad she came because there was a big fishing derby this weekend and we were worried she wouldn't.  But at least she came. :)
We also had dinner with a family named the Ayers and they used to live in Lehi and he worked for PG city.  He also knows the Brocious family!!  It was really fun.
So that was pretty much my week. :)
Love you all!
Love Always and Forever,
SIster Lundahl
