Week #17 January 27, 2014 Winter Carnival

Hello Friends!
     Its winter carnival! Its been a pretty crazy week! The population of McCall  quadrupled in size! (at least) There were so many people there for a town with a normal population of about 2,000. It has been a lot of fun though! All of the ice sculptures have just been so impressive! So all the missionaries in our district are coming up today to check all of them out and to go to the "Activity Barn" which is a groomed tubing hill! I have heard that you can reach up to 40 mph on it! I'm so excited! We have a really good day coming! I'll send pictures of them all next week! Because of all the festivities and such, the whole town is involved in one way or another, and because of that EVERY SINGLE  appointment we had canceled! So we had to work extra hard to find people to teach! Somehow our work payed off and we were able to meet our goals for the week! Friday there was a huge firework show out on the lake! Live music and tons of vendors set up! Saturday morning there was a massive parade! There were floats from McCall, Boise & everywhere in between! Everyone is in a really great mood! (but no one wants to talk to us haha.) So we met a guy last week at the grocery store that started the conversation by saying "how does it feel to know that you will be a god one day?" . . . super interesting guy, anyways, we set up an appointment to teach him and he ended up canceling but we didn't know why. Then during the parade we saw him! He was on the corner of the street soap-boxing to the crowds with a sign that said "Sodomites are an abomination to god!" I was like "man, that guy is bold! . . I can't wait to teach him!" After the parade we went to "Sharlie's plunge!" (sharlie is the lake monster) It is a fundraiser, you have to raise $100 to jump into a pool of frozen water! It was hilarious! We had a lot of fun this weekend! McCall is a great place to be serving! Hopefully this week we will have more chances to actually teach! haha.
