100 degrees vs 3" of Snow

100 degrees in Vegas eh? I can beat that. We had 3 inches of snow one morning
this week.So much snow almost every street had a broken branch because of the weight of the snow. 
    Something else really cool happened! We had a baptism! Woot woot! The first baptism this area has had since it was opened.  
It was the coolest thing because we combined it with their wedding and they
just loved it so much. The relief society put on a beautiful wedding reception/baptism.  We got to Skype in past missionaries and their
family from Honduras. I gave a talk at the baptism comparing life to a bike ride up a mountain. It was way cool and the son of the person who was baptized told us he wants to take the lessons. 
   Another cool miracle was as we got out of a lesson at these apartments, we crossed paths with this big Mexican guy with a ton
of tattoos and we told him who we were and he said, "Well how about you
come in and we will talk some more." We then taught him the restoration and right before we got to Joseph Smith, his wife walked in and just sat down and joined in on the conversation. We showed them the video " Book of Mormon Story". After the video she said she wanted to read the Book of Mormon because something is drawing her to it. Ahhh! it was such a cool lesson. The spirit was so strong and that kept me going through the week.
