Oct 26, 2015

At the beginning of this week, Sister Galli's goal was to have more meekness in trial (she's 
studying the song "More Holiness Give Me" line by line each week.) It wasn't as bad as we 

In fact, we met an amazing couple yesterday! They were invited by some members to our 
Meet the Mormons movie night we had on Friday, and then they wanted a Bible, and 
missionaries make great messengers :) so we raided the church library and headed on 
down the road! They were super friendly and Sheila has a beautiful Texan accent that Sister Galli picks up as she talks to her. They love learning about other religions and right now are just searching for what God wants them to do. Talk about prepared! They're fabulous and 
wanted to make sure we came back again.

We also had some fun finding experiences. We've had a goal to talk to 10 new people a 
day, which would happen if there were actual amounts of people in Alaska. We've been 
averaging probably about 3, which is most of the people we see that aren't in their cars. In 
an effort to see and be able to talk to more people, we decided to walk most of the way 
across town (about 30 minutes) and talk to everyone we saw. Since it was Saturday 
morning, we figured we'd see several people... And we saw a whopping 2 people getting 
into their car 50 feet up the road. It was a good time. The best part was that I felt inspired to walk up to this house and knock on their door, so I head up the driveway with my trusting
 companion. We get close to the door and see a lovely little sign on white paper written with a nice red marker: "Do not knock. Don't ring the doorbell. Go away. JUST LEAVE." We had a good laugh... Poor guys, they must have had a rough day. #alaska

Stocking salmon and ammo for the Second Coming is actually a thing.

Sister Galli is doing really well at not being trunky, even though she's only got one transfer
 after this one. We've convinced ourselves she has another year. As for other elders in my
 district... I can't say the same time. Describing how you're so excited to buy your RV and
drive back to Alaska every day doesn't help.

Two of the big families in town have kids who just got engaged, so that's the talk of the town.

Grace is my new favorite subject. Divine assistance you receive through faith and
 repentance. I don't know about you, but I need all the divine assistance that I can get.

The trees are now all bare, both of leaves and of snow. All of Soldotna is holding its breath as we wait for real winter to set in. We haven't plugged in our car yet!

Stay warm, remember who you are!
