Fresh apple cider and famous cider donuts

I am doing well. :) Life in Norwich is good.  It makes me really happy that Boston reminds you of me. It is such a cool city! I am so excited to show you around. :) Get ready for some walking.

We got to go on Wednesday to make cards at a potential investigators house.  She made us the most delicious apple cider! It is SO good out here. I made some pretty cool cards. :)

We got to go and be apart of Stake Reporting.  The missionaries go and report on the work in the wards. :)  I think it was the first time sisters were invited.  It was a lot of fun!  Afterwards we went to dinner at 5 Guys.  I love being on my mission because I have a million guy friends. :)  It is good. 

There was a lady in our ward, Sister Wilbur who had her apartment flood a few weeks ago.  She is on the six floor.  So it was weird, nobody knew where she was for a few days.  But we found her and she is back home safe and sound. :)   Oh she was in a hotel.  Safe and sound except she had no car and was only fed breakfast.

We ate dinner at a really cool old school mansion. It was beautiful! It is from the 1700s.

We read D&C 50 with a woman in the ward, Sister Sullivan. It is such a good chapter!

The elders in Waterford had a ton of winter stuff for girls because sisters used to live in their apartment. So we now have a ton of coats, scarves, and gloves to help us attack the cold.

On Saturday we were asked to sing at a baptism.  I can't sing to save my life and neither can Sister Giblette.  It went alright, one of the elders recorded it. -.- not cool.  It was a 9 year old convert and her 8 year old friend. :) Molly (9) and Olivia (8). Molly waited a year so she could be baptized the same time as Olivia.  Funny. :)

Yesterday was such a good church day! We had 10 non-members at church! Whoop!  We got a new investigator, Nashmere, he has so many good questions.  We also had such a good lesson with our investigators the Dunns. They have two kids. Cassie (12) and Gordo (9). So it is hard to get them to focus but yesterday we talked about the restoration and they asked so many good questions. :)

Roxanne is one of our investigators. She is an incredible woman. Today is actually her birthday. She grew up Catholic, but has always been searching for more. Her older brother joined the church 4 years ago or so and the family was not happy about it at all. He passed away 3 years ago from cancer. Which is so very sad, and she still has a hard time with it. She is good friends with our ward mission leaders wife, so she never got too far away from the church. Sister Lewis (the wife) invited her to meet with us and she has been with us ever since. :) I love her SO much. You would love her too. She wants to be baptized and loves what she is learning. Her husband is very supportive, but is happy Catholic. She can't see herself worshiping without him. But we are all pretty sure that her entire family will be baptized eventually. :) There is no way they won't be.
Today we are going to the cider mill to get fresh cider and famous cider donuts.  We are going with our zone to the Cider Mill in North Stonington. :) They have a famous old steam engine mill that crushes the apples and makes cider right in your face and straight into the bottle.. :) YUMMY! They also make famous cider donuts, I have heard they are delicious.
