Love to all!!!

Hello Everyone!!
We continue to have spider issues! One of the pictures is a spider trap with 3 spiders stuck in it... gross.
We had our first snowfall this week! It was nice during the day and then the night hit and we were on bikes heading to an apt complex on the complete opposite side of Moscow...then the downpour started...and we couldn't see anything!!! It was so cold, but so much fun at the same time! 
The night before we had a huge windstorm and blew a tree over that was on campus! My companion, who is taller than I am is standing next to it in the picture! 
That same companion thought it would be a good idea to do "NO SWEETS NOVEMBER".... which consists of no refined sugars unless its a holiday or a member makes dessert specifically for us... hahah needless to say I'm pushing for as many member dinners as possible!!! haha 
Can I just say that fasting is incredible!? We were fasting on sunday and miracles happen! We were meeting with one of our less actives who has been struggling for a really long time and we went into this lesson with the Elders Quorum President in the ward and had such a spiritual lesson!!!! He recognized the spirit was present and Sister Hardy asked the one question that he didn't want to answer, "What is the Lord inspiring you to do right now?" He answered that the Lord wanted him to be a 100% member and to stop looking in the past and only look to the future!!! I was so happy I started crying!!! (The spirit helped with that one too) But it was incredible!! Fasting works! I love it! 
The church is true! be a 100% member! Be a shining example of a Latter-Day Saint! People will see the difference!
Love you all!
Sister Richardson
