Let it Snow, New Companion and Weekly Miracle

Hello everyone! 
This week has been an adventure! We were transferred midst receiving a good nine inches of snow, followed up by another few inches later this week. The snow sure made it fin to get around! Thankfully, I have some Utah experience under my belt, and that helped us arrive safely at our destination at all times. On that we, we were always blessed with drivers around us who knew what they were doing enough to not get in an accident with us too.
My new companion Elder Lott, is pretty funny. He just came in from Guyman, Oklahoma where he was covering the whole panhandle, and loving it. It was sure funny to see his eyes get all big when we went to church and there was a full chapel and overflow (normal for our ward) as opposed to the branch of 30 he was used to. We are still trying to figure one another out for sure, but we know that this next transfer is going to be great!
We had a major miracle this weekend in that Sister Scott, one of the less-active ladies we are working with, signed up to feed us dinner. She has told us that we are literally and answer to prayers in our timing of knocking on her door and in helping her find fellowship and come back to church. Anyway, her son who has been disinterested thus far sat in on the entire lesson, and asked questions and totally got involved. He didn't make it to church this week, but he is really coming out of his shell. Not only did we get a meal, but we were working to save some souls. It was great!
It has been a while since I have sent a list of people to pray for, so here is a new updated list:
Lt. Parson, Sister Scott, Brother Hull, Maxene, Stacie, Heather, the Larson family, Treeva, Katie, Mike and Christy, Sis Koppa, Bro Van Dusen, the Sheppards, and Deanna and Jeff. Thanks a ton!
Love you all so much! I know that our Savior lives and that He can and will give us the energy, knowledge and power to do whatever we need to. I know that if we focus not on what we want, but rather on what He wants, we will be so much happier. 
You are all amazing!
Elder Beckstead
