New Beginnings

Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and you got some sleep this weekend :)
For us, New Year's Eve was just another day, haha welcome to being a missionary.
It's been a good week though, hard to believe it is already 2015!

Did anyone make any new years resolutions? I'm sure I have shared this with you but President Pouslen loves to tell us: "If you always do what you've always done, you're gonna get what you've always had". Granted he applies that to missionary work but I think it can be applied to anything in life. Also there was a fun poem thing that was on the back on the New Year's Eve Temple Square concerts program that I really like and I think Momma would love it :)
"There's something invigorating and inviting about new beginnings. Like a fresh blanket of untouched snow, like a book full of empty pages, the new year lies before us, waiting for us to make our mark"
2015 is going to be a great year, full of learning, adventures, and miracles. Every day is a new beginning, it is so exciting!

Despite the New Year, this week was filled with lots of work but lots of tender mercies. We've had investigators drop us and investigators progress more than we expected because our Father is so good! So it's been a week of ups and downs, but the ups make everything else worth it.
We were able to be out of the office for most of the week. We did have to calculate the months numbers and send it to the missionary department. But that was about it. Which means more time doing missionary work!
We were able to talk with a lot of amazing people this week. I love hearing people's stories. Everyone has their own story and there is always something that we can learn from it. A lot of the people we met, either on chat or on the square, had really strong testimonies of the gospel but were in a situation that was preventing progression. It's been interesting, Heavenly Father is very good at placing certain people in your path to remind you of something that you learned in the past. Sister Merrill and I were both able to have experiences when we were talking with people and were prompted to share an experience that we had, that before then was long forgotten about.
Well sorry this email is short, this p-day is a little shorter. We are meeting as a zone to watch the "Meet the Mormons" movie because tonight is the first night that we are now showing it here.
Yay! :)
oh, and fun fact, we ran into Elder Holland today! He is so cool! Perks of serving in SLC!
