Cher Famille et amis,
Well January has come to an end, I'm hoping that means it will stop being bitter cold and start being just cold. Today I think we've got a wind chill of -36 or something so I guess I'll keep hanging tight. It was a very busy week. We had visits with a lot of less actives, and didn't have a lot of time to find new investigators. Our main investigator Constance, however, is doing very well. Yesterday she got up and bore her testimony about how much of a blessing the Gospel is in her life and how grateful she is for her friend who told her to look into it. Her baptism is this Saturday and we're all super excited for her.
The other day we were on the bus to head back to our apartment and a kid sat down across from us wearing a coat with a `Powder Mountain` patch on it. It took me a minute to process it but once it sunk in I asked him if he had been to Utah. Turns out him and his dad had gone on a ski trip there a while back. That was pretty cool. I told him I was from there so we talked about the different resorts and stuff for a while then we told him who we were and why we were there and he thought that was pretty cool. We didn't get his number or address but it was still cool. Then just a couple nights ago we were on the bus and a couple girls got on and they were speaking English so we asked where they were from and they were both from Western Canada and they were here for a speed skating competition. Turns out, one of them had also been to Utah for a competition and visited the temple and everything! So she had heard of us because of that. She was leaving Quebec the next day so we weren't able to set up an appointment but hopefully we sparked more of an interest for her in the future.
We found a new apartment this week and it's super nice! We're just waiting for the mission to get all the appliances and stuff in there so we can move in. Today's our Zone Activity so we've got 10 missionaries staying in our current apartment tonight. It's going to be packed. We're going to see the ice hotel today! I'll send pictures next week. Should be cool.
Love, Elder Oxborrow
