Sister Fitch: December 5, 2011

Crazy week!  I can't believe how fast it went by.  We were so busy this week we didn't even have time to knock a single door.  Mostly we were busy getting ready for the BAPTISM that happened on Saturday!  Hooray, Pauline was baptized!  Things were a little rocky for a bit.  Every person we teach has different challenges. Some are from internal sources, some from external.  In Pauline's case, she loved the things we taught her, she was grateful for the clarity it brought her, and she had many, many answers to her questions from what we were able to teach her.  However, external challenges were pretty powerful, such as her tribe threatening to kick her out and cut her hair if she doesn't smoke the peace pipe.  She's going to be strong, though.  She has a lot of faith, she just needs to hold onto it.  We had a Zone Study this week, too. It was fun to see the whole zone.  That only happens about once, sometimes twice a transfer.  Last night we got to see the Christmas devotional, and it was lovely.  It was Pauline's first time hearing the prophet and his counselors, as well as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and she loved it.  The weather here is ridiculous.  I keep bracing myself for the worst of the worst, but yesterday it was probably at least 45 degrees, if not more.  It was like 15 or 16 celcius, whatever that means Stateside.  We've had some really, stupid-cold days, but still no snow.  We had one storm, but nothing much since except drizzles.  Family, I love you sooo so much.  You're the best.  Merry Christmas!!
