Week 25 - Two new companions and an amazing week

This week I have had the most amazing time since I have been out on my mission!!  

On Thursday we drove 2 and a half hours to Iowa City for transfer meeting.  Once there I found out my new companions are Elder Jackson and Elder Miranda! They are amazing elders!! After transfer meeting we drove back to O-town. Once they got settled in we went to WalMart because there was no way we were surviving 4 days with the food we have and with how much they eat!! After that adventure we went over to Bishop Bair's house so the elders could meet him and his family. Sister Bair's dinner was amazing. 

On Friday we started off our morning with our regular studying till 11am then we had weekly planning till about 3pm. After weekly planning we went over to the Whitlow's house. We finished of our evening by searching for those people who would be interested in learning about the gospel. We found a Hispanic man who name is Manuel! 

Since Elder Miranda and Elder Jackson are both fluent in Spanish we are really focusing on Hispanics, so we visited the less active Hispanics in our ward on Saturday. We found a man who name is Jorge! He and his wife had just come home from hospital with their first baby.  We taught them about the Atonement and gave his wife a blessing to relieve the pain. The work here in Osceola is really going to pick up.

On Sunday we had fast and testimony meeting which is always wonderful! We then had two appointments fall through. It was 0 degrees with a strong wind, we were advised to stay inside and not tract unless we had an urgent appointment.

Today it's -12 at the moment with a -30 to -40 wind chill.... other than shopping we will be inside all day.
I have to go, but I love you and give the family a lot of love for me. 

Your favorite, best, most handsome son,
Elder Roberts
