Many are called, but few are FROZEN!

Wise words of the mission president:  'Many Are Called (sometimes cold), But Few Are FROZEN'
It has been a cold weekend!  Nostrils sticking together, scarf freezing, sneezing, sniffling, etc.  This morning the thermometer  was below 0.  Last night, with the wind chill, it was around -15.  What a fun time, isn't it?
Well, the highlight for the week is the lesson we had with Jaymie and Alesha last Monday which I talked about last Tuesday.  But, it was cool to hear that Alesha had an amazing time at both Mutual and the ice sculpting stake activity on Saturday in Rome.  She then went out with some of the women in the stake and went ice skating.
Then Sunday Jaymie, Chris (husband) and Alesha came to church!  We have another appointment with them tonight.
I was reviewing some of my Book of Mormon notes and came across this scripture in Alma 28:14 'And thus we see the great call of diligence of men to labor in the vineyards of the Lord.'  We got to work.  And we got to work hard with diligence.  For there is a great need and a great calling.  Hopefully, we all don't have to be frozen.
Have a great week!
