February 27th I survived!!!!

I had to drive on Monday till Thursday this week and the car is still in one piece! I start driving permanently on Wednesday in the area but who knows what will happen at transfers....... The weather was warm and slushy so I bought rain boots and then on Wednesday it got cold again, it is like -10.

I hope you all had a great week and you got to share the gospel with someone! This week has been crazy and it has gone by so quickly! Hey! My teaching pool is getting bigger which is great! I Well I was on exchanges Monday afternoon to Thursday afternoon with Sister Dungon so we were covering her ward and mine during that time . ... We played a tracting game with the Elders and we saw lots of miracles and so did the Elders. We all got new people to teach!!!!!! I hope all of you have a great
week and look for the miracles around you because I can promise you that they are there.
Love ya,
Sister Russell

February 20th – Bed bugs- who knew

Today is Louis Riel Day! Well we have 3 new investigators now and we have 2 lessons today so I am hoping I will get 2 more.
Well this has been a interesting week!.  We had a couple of warm days this week and its melting and we didn’t’ need coats so I am planning on getting rain boots today so my feet will stay dry. 
.Also the other sister missionaries found out they have bed bugs in their apartment so we spent two days helping them put everything in plastic bags.
I love you two so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, Sister Russell

February 13th- Happy Valentine’s Day – Its warm enough to snow

Tracting at -38 degrees......Well smile till it is a real smile. To answer the question about the splits.  Yes we will be splitting this week for sure because Sister Smith and  her companion in leadership have to plan for zone conference this week.  So last week we were on splits for 2 days and then on Wednesday night till Thursday night. I am glad you are feeding the missionaries. We are working on doing service projects every week it is hard because we are both new to this area. I have done a lot a driving this week because of exchanges I have to say big city driving scares me to death.
I hope you all had a great week. It is weird having the new schedule... weird in a good way. I have been going the same set schedule for 5 1/2 months and it feels weird that it is a different schedule but it takes 21 days to form a habit so I should be good with it in March. And I definitely will not complain about an extra two hours of P-day. We had a movie night on Friday night because of the new schedule we got back at 9 like normal but we don't plan in the evenings so we have a extra half hour. So we popped popcorn and that is a story in and of its self and watched How Rare a Possession if you have not seen it watch it! It is super good!

Well that is about it for this week! I hope you all will have a fun week!

The temperature is positive- finnally 
With Sister Smith - its cold

February 6th Well I am still alive..

Hey, I do not like driving in Winnipeg I had to drive the second day I got in the city I have been driving the last 18 hours and we have not died so that is a plus. I had to drive last night and I have been all day today and tonight and tomorrow. And the roads are bad and I am sliding all over and can't stop well. The mission believes in all season tires :( and I miss winter tires and 4 wheel drive). I am way out of practice for driving.... and I get put in driving in winter. We went street contacting and were able to get two prospective investigators.
Well I hope you know about the new missionary schedule. I get training on it tomorrow. I got a media referral this week which was exciting. As for the pictures Well Froster for weekly planning because there is a Mac's store right by our house. we live on Kimberly really close the church.
The lego hook is from the package Michaela sent me
That is about it for this week.
 love ya.
