Comments from the COLD by Sister Horning!

Hello Hello!!! Seriously.. WHERE is time going? i dont even know.. Its already Monday again! AND the middle of November! what in the WORLD!! well- Life is going well! i love love love the mission so much! here are a FEW updates- Alexandra is getting baptized Dec. 5th- yes, the day before my birthday!! i wanted to have it on my birthday, but its a Sunday- so i settled for the day before! I am SSOO excited for her! she is a miracle! shes the one that met with us and told us she was atheist and that she ONLy came to church to support her member boyfriend.. we have been working with her over the last 2 months or so and she has progressed SSOO much! we had a meeting with her and the day was going TERRIBLE up to that point.. well not so terrible! I received a package from my WONDERFUL homeward filled with outterwear goods! they are ssoo sweet- thanks Chelse, Bishop and ward! so that really made my day wonderful.. but before then was bad. i mean really bad. Sister Sullivan and I got into a HUGE argument and it was just really bad (but it turned out well in the end).. so we were just calming down and trying to invite the spirit when Alexandra walks in- tells us she needs to tell us something before we begin teaching.. "I want to get baptized" she calmly states!! YES!!! so that made our night/day for SURE! WHAT a blessing! shes SSOO excited to get baptised and take the steps to come closer to Christ.. AH.. i love the Gospel! hhmm.. once again- nothing too great or out of the "norm" has happend here recently.. WELL.. except that we had 4 people to church on Sunday and we had 15 lessons with members/return appointments- which is both way better than we usually do! so we can see this area grown and progress. i love it so much! the Lord really does bless us. we havent worked ANY harder this week- yet the Lord has been preparing people! sssoo good. OH- we met Kelci- shes a LOVElY young lady who plays volley ball for team Canada- so if Canada goes to the Olymics for Vball- she will be one of the ones playing! IN-tense.. shes a member and ssoo cute and ultra sweet! i love her! we have been talking a lot with the members about missionary work and inviting their friends.. i hope you are all being wonderful missionaries and inviting others to come closer to Christ! Members HoNESTLY make the biggest difference in peoples lives!
Well. i better go now.. I love you all! thanks again for everything you have done! please keep me updated wtih pictures, letters and emails! Erica- ill send you a CD with pictures thus far on my mission- please add some on here so people can see them- ONLYif you have time.. thank you for all you do!
