I am happy to report that this week has been much better than last week! Yay! Michael was confirmed on Sunday and has been enjoying having the Holy Ghost as his constant companion. He has called us several times this week (it's only Wednesday!!) and has told us about different experiences he's having with reading and praying and such! He's so great and I'm so happy for him!

We are also teaching 2 brothers named Joseph and Casper. They're great! Hopefully they'll have a baptism date soon (like tomorrow or Friday)! Joseph is so sweet and sincere! Larry and Oscar have been really sick recently, so we haven't been able to meet with them. Nemi has disappeared off the face of the Earth, so... I don't know how he is. We met this kid named Javier yesterday and he's so cool! He had a friend pass away over the weekend so he's really searching for the purpose of life and such. The cool part was that he said he was praying for comfort and peace right before we started talking to him! Hopefully we'll get to meet with him soon! The work is progressing here in the White Oak area!
I don't know if you've been watching the weather, but it's crazy out here. We went from 50's to 20's to teens with snow to 70's. What happened?? Like literally. Monday we had snow on the ground. Tuesday we get dressed for cold weather and we're dying of heat while walking around! It's the strangest January I've ever had! But, I like it :)

Changes are talking place in the Visitors Center! New schedules, new rules, new directors. It's great! So far the changes aren't too rough, so I'm happy. We haven't seen any of the 19 year old Sisters yet, but rumor has it that they're coming next transfer :) But we'll see. Rumors are just rumors!

Anyway, that's all I have to report for now! I miss you and love you all! Please be safe, warm, happy and healthy! If you need a boost, I would suggest Alma 33:23!
23 And now, my brethren, I desire that ye shall aplant this word in your hearts, and as it beginneth to swell even so nourish it by your faith. And behold, it will become a tree, bspringing up in you unto ceverlasting life. And then may God grant unto you that your dburdens may be light, through the joy of his Son. And even all this can ye do if ye ewill. Amen.
Have joy in your life because of our Savior! I love you all and miss you terribly!Love, Sister Bullock
