A Game of Hot and Cold with the Spirit

Area:  Independence, Missouri
Companion:  Elder Thompson

Mom and Dad!   Well, it's transfer week!  I really don't know what will happen.  I would assume I will stay and finish training Elder Thompson but it's possible that they will ship me out and bring in a follow-up trainer.  I'm kinda ready to leave this area, I love it here and the people here and the ward members and everything, I just felt like I have done what I can here and am kind of stuck in a rut.  It's hard to think of new things to try and find new people, we just need some new ideas or something!  I want to get off to the boonies or the big city, right now it's kind of the middle of both of them.  I don't know, we will see what happens!  
Well, the weather over here is getting cold!  I love it!  It has snowed a little bit, but at least it is staying now.  It mostly just gets really icy here and everything just get a coat of ice over it all.  The other day it was raining but coming down as little pellets of clear ice, it was pretty sweet.  Its been around 5-30 degrees here with a nice humid breeze.  Bites ya!
Glad you loved the song!  I really love learning the Uke and being able to create my own music.  I have always loved that.  The mission has really helped me grow in every direction!  Now that I am thinking about it, it's kind of like the taffy puller in willy wonka.  haha!  Yeah, share the song with sister Griggs!  Let me know what she says.  If you can, can you email me that video?  It might be to long, if it doesn't work don't worry about it. 
The puppies are the best!  I loved the video of the blow dryer!  Made me laugh :)
Glad Autumn liked the sweater and that it fits her, Go Chiefs!
Geesh, Tanners almost home!  Kinda weird...
Well, this week was somewhat eventful!  As I keep having to remind my companion to back me in the car with comments like, "Whose your favorite Apostle?"  "Mine is Boyde K. Backer!"  and "My favorite football team is the Green Bay Backers!"  We came across some homies fighting on Lynn St., one of the sketchiest parts of the area!  
We found a new investigator on Saturday night.  Her name is Danyelle.  The story of how we found her is a miracle.  We just didn't know what to do so we said a prayer to be led to someone who is ready to hear the message of the restoration of the gospel.  When we finished I felt prompted to go to a set of apartments we have been working.  When we got there I felt like I was playing a game of hot or cold with the Spirit!  haha We came to the building and my heart was pounding so we got out.  We then went to the very top floor and knocked!  The very first door it's Danyelle!  Such a miracle!  We have been trying to find new investigators for so long!
Well that's about all that happened this week.  
Love you all!
Elder Shoemaker
