Mummy and Daddy.
This week was quite the week. Wow. I have one major event that I MUST
relate to you. So....background.....It bucketed snow here for three
days. We're talking non-stop hockey pucks of snow beating down on us.
We've been on foot since then. We're talking TWO FEET of snow!!!! The
whole of Britain shut down!!!!!!
Well, Neil and Michelle were supposed to get baptized this weekend,
and everyone told us we couldn't because the car park was chucked full
of snow. Well, we weren't having that. We wanted to try our best to
make it happen, show Heavenly Father that we had faith in him and that
we know how important baptism is. "Sister Terry, are you ready to make
a miracle happen?" So we gathered the troops, grabbed our spade,
broom, and dust pan and marched to the chapel. After ours of scooping
away, we stood back and surveyed our progress.....we cleared a square
of side walk....."Alright! now just 200 square feet left to go!" Some
people left, but a small group of us were up for the challenge. We
prayed and asked God for a miracle, and continued kicking snow around
(I figured I could work on my b' thigh at the same time:D) After a
couple of minutes, guess who trundled down our little side
street.....guess...just guess....oh you won't guess so I'll tell you.
Our Big Yellow Miracle came trundling down our road...a full on
BULLDOZER!!!! A little farmer man hopped out of the cab and said, "You
need some help?" I fetched those gate keys SO FAST!!!! No reason to
give him space to change his mind! In a matter of minutes he cleared
the car park in it's entirety!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAM! MIRACLE!
NEXT!!!!!! Crazy right?!?!?!? "This is not even happening!!! We
prepared juice and pringles for him...but when he was done he zoomed
down the street!!!! I chased after him...probably not the smartest
idea on a sheet of ice, but I prepared juice and I had to say thank
you!!! "I have juice!!" BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT!
Your next question, Did we have the baptism? No...the bishop put the
kiabosh on it(the weather elsewhere was too bad), but I'm still so
proud of us! We asked God for a miracle and he sent it!!!!! It was Big
and Yellow and BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
I love you so much!
Life is so good! :D
Expect presents soon. (remember this the names are written on the
wrapping paper. not the ribbons...I didn't have time. you'll find the
names no worries.)
I love you!
