A week of Miracles

Well, this week has been a week of miracles!
The weather has been 50's to 60's all week! And this next week is supposed to be in the 70's. Today is supposed to be a high of 69! This has been an amazing winter! The warmest for sure that I have ever had! The nights drop down quite a few degrees, that even to a point, we had snow when we woke up, and later that day it was in the 50's! 
That was a miracle in and of itself! But a few others have happened this week!
One day, right before dinner we had a little time, so we decided to walk in the park to talk to people. It was one of the colder days this week so we didn't think too many people would be outside, but luckily there was one guy! We decided to talk to him, even though he was sitting all creepily with his hood on in the middle of the park. When we walked closer we decided it would be ok because he was reading harry potter! We sat down right next to him and taught him all about the restoration of the gospel. He loved it and we set a time to go visit him. We went to go see him later that week with a member that we had with us, and after knocking on his door a couple times without him answering, the member yelled to the door "It's the missionaries" and the door opened! Well, ok, Chris (that's the guys name) didn't seem to sincere, but we still taught him! And this Sunday he came to church! Ah, it's so amazing to have him come! There's something about that coming to church that just shows the interest and sincerity of someone! :) 

Well, my companion has to go to the chiropractor three times a week now! But there's a story to that! Let me back up!
 So in December (I was currently not Elder McGlothlins companion) Elder McGlothlin got in a bike crash, and three weeks later a member sent him to the ER because he didn't want to go. They diagnosed him with a concussion and said that he would have post concussion headaches and migraines for a few months, and that he was not able to do anything physical. Well, the same member that sent him to the ER asked if he had gone to a chiropractor yet to help his headaches, so we then talked to another member in our ward (a chiropractor. Really, members are amazing!) and we got my comp to see him! Turns out he has a compressed fracture (I think that's what it's called) and a bulging disk because of the bike crash, so yep! Thus the three times a week! 

So, because it is basketball season, every single tv (or at least it feels like it) is constantly turned on watching basketball! For some weird reason because of that, everyone is a lot happier than when watching football! Ya, in Oklahoma they don't classify the seasons by the weather. It's "basketball season" "it's football season". Yep!
