Happy last week of February, y'all! It's still cold and snowy here, but last week we had one day where we hit 24 degrees. Heat wave! :)

This has been a tough week, but we've been blessed with many miracles. The best one is that Sister Ollerton is feeling better. She was SO sick! We finally went to see a doctor. I was a little nervous, but when one of the members walked in, I felt better. That was amazing that he happened to be the doctor in that day :) He told Sister Ollerton that she had a sinus infection. We bought the prescriptions he gave, and followed the advice: "Rest, rest, rest. Mosiah 4:27" Haha! Genius :) We spent a lot of time inside because of it, but it was very good. Sister Ollerton is feeling so much better and I was able to do some things around the apartment.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to teach a woman who has several friends who are members. They always invited her to activities and church, but she often turned them down. For some reason, she finally accepted the invitation to meet with us. We taught her about the Restoration and invited her to be baptized, and she accepted!

What I learned from this is that we should never give up. It's easy to think that someone isn't interested because he or she wasn't last year, last month, or even last week. However, "the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men" (1 Nephi 9:6). If the Spirit prompts us to say or do something, then it is always time to do it, even if it's hard or scary for us.

I know that Heavenly Father loves us. I know without any doubt that he knows us each individually and sends the tender mercies to remind us. I love Him and I'm grateful to serve Him.
Have a marvelous week!
