Shovel & Blisters

February 20, 2016
Snow means a lot of things, but for a missionary it means a sore back, blistered thumbs, and 20 cups of hot chocolate. 
This week I was able to go down to Halifax and serve with some other missionaries! We 8 straight hours we drove around to find people who were struggling to shovel themselves out. Our squad of 4 guys, 3 shovels, and a snowblower would clean up any drive way in 20 minutes or less.
We helped 18 people clear their homes and nothing felt better than when we left them with smiling faces for some free service. It warmed my heart and I have gained a new appreciation for helping people when they are stuck. One woman gave us jam, another kiwis, basically whatever they could find! It was amazing and I’ve made it a goal of mine to help pulled over drivers and those who could use assistance. 
The Saviour taught similarly, that “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matt 25:40)

I have a testimony of random acts of kindness!

Love, Elder Madsen
