A lot of snow on the ground with more coming (week 78)

So we have had a great week here in Wenatchee. There is a lot more snow on the ground but, I think I'm going to be able to power through it. We got a good 6 inches this past weekend and the word is that we are going to get even more as the week goes on. Its crazy but, we are walking missionaries so I doesn't affect us as much as those with cars. Hopefully it doesn't get too cold either. The forecast says Friday it is going to drop to -9 but, I'm hoping it doesn't. 

This week we were able to find some really great people. We have two new on-dates; Sergio for February 4th and Miguel for February 11th. We are excited for the opportunity to teach them and help them draw closer to the savior. They both have a desire to improve and are willing to commit. We are still waiting for a chance to see how they are doing on their commitments. 

This weekend we had a great zone training meeting. We learned about motivation, using time wisely, having effective lessons with members, constantly finding and better upkeep with our area books. Elder Enderton and I also got to give a final training on being faithful disciples of Christ. We wrapped up the training we were given in the meeting and focused on how we need to have love for others and how love is how we become true disciples of Christ. That needs to become our motivator and when it does we are able to follow Jesus Christ more fully. We are hoping that it helped out the zone and that everyone was able to learn from what we shared. 

So some cool things that are going to be happening in our mission coming up. February 25th we are going to have a worldwide missionary broadcast like the one we had last year. I'm looking forward to the things we will be able to learn from the leaders of our church and also to see what focus they give us for this year. In the week of March 20thour mission is going to be visited by Elder Juan A Uceda of the quorum of the 70 (He gave the Inca bridge talk on prayer). That is super exciting and we will be able to learn from on of the general authorities and he will be able to give us advice on how we can improve the progression on missionary work in our mission. There are some great things to look forward to. Also this week we have district council on Tuesday and interviews with president on Thursday

I hope that everyone has a great week! Keep being awesome!

Love Y'all,
Elder Boren
