A member told us earlier in the week that we were supposed to get a snow storm. Sister Erickson and I responded with an unconvinced laugh. Mostly because a couple of months ago we were supposed to have a huge storm that literally was only a little bit of rain and some wind. But to our surprise we woke up yesterday morning and it was indeed snowing! It snowed all day and into the night. The roads were pretty treacherous this morning. We had to have the Elders come and help us get our out of the parking lot this morning. HAHA the funniest part is that we only got maybe 3-5 inches, but in this part of Washington it doesn't snow very often, so nobody knows what to do!
Yesterday we had a pretty amazing miracle, we were walking down a street before dinner - the roads were pretty scary so we made it to our dinner early and decided to talk to people in the area. We are walking down the road and this man comes around the corner of his house. We go over and start talking with him, share some scriptures and testimony about the Plan of Salvation (because he told us of his parents passing away and feeling like there was something more after this life). After setting up a return appointment and inviting him to pray he looks over at us and says, "This is just the weirdest thing. I was sitting inside, warm, watching the Super Bowl, and out of know where I had the thought that I needed to come outside and move my van because of the snow. And when I walked out, you two were here!" I don't believe in coincidences. I believe in a God who loves His children and wants them all to have the opportunity to hear about the message of the Restoration and His plan for us. I know that this man, Jimmy, has been prepared and this was divine intervention so that we'd be able to meet him.
