Here, There, Everywhere...again! 8/11

So this week has been interesting... in a good way though! We have 2 new investigators and we have a baptism this coming weekend! Ahhh We are so excited and I am so happy this ward though is amazing and we have so much fun. 

Monday: We went shopping at D.I. woohoo! haha found a few things but there was so many people there. we had dinner with our Ward Mission Leader brother Lynch and his wife they are so sweet and help us out so much!

Tuesday: We had exchanges and so I went with sister Wright and sister Bly stayed in our area with Sister Ramsey. I had a lot of fun it was rainy all day long. Luckily we were in a car that day. We saw so many miracles and we were able to talk to so many different people it was awesome! We went home that night to "The Villa" (that's what they call there house because they each have there own room and bathroom Luck right? and they both have huge queen sized beds!) so I got to stay there:) so fun and we had a blast! 

Wednesday: We headed back to switch back from exchanges and it was pouring rain! Apparently it had poured all night long because as we were driving back, the roads were completely flooded, car lots had flooded to up past the cars hoods and tons of houses had flooded! We got home and it was raining so hard. later that morning we got a text that there were 7 or so families in the ward whose basements flooded. So we did service all day and helped people out and then we help out sister Christensen with tons of stuff and we dug trenches in the pouring rain so it was a long day but so worth it!

Thursday: we had weekly planning. Sister Lynch invested us over for lunch so we went and had lunch with her. Luckily it started to warm up so peoples houses were doing better. We did more planning that day and it was worth it. We had dinner that night with Judy Taylor and Natasha came with us. We watched Finding Faith in Christ and she loved it! She is getting so excited for her baptism.

Friday: It was awesome. We got to go to EFY on Friday. they asked the missionaries here to come to and help out at EFY and we did. Most nerve racking thing was the Zone Leaders calling 20 minutes before we were leaving to ask me to speak in front of all the kids! Ahh freaked out a little but it went well and all they ended up wanting was me to bear my testimony. All the missionaries then sung  "I Know That My Redeemer Lives" and "Called to Serve" it was awesome! We then got to help out some of the youth by answering there questions that they get asked regularly! We then finished planning and then went and visited some of the widows in the ward.

Saturday: We were really busy and had a lot to do. Natasha had her baptismal interview and it was amazing! You couldn't have asked for a better thing she was so happy when she came out she told us she just wanted to dance! It was so cute. Later that day we had dinner with the Clark's. Thee daughter leaves on her mission this week for the Chec Republic so we were giving her advice on everything it was so cool to talk to her! 

Sunday; Busy again as always we had choir and church that morning.... Then we had a lesson with Kay and Donna they are leaving for a month on a trip but they are still wanting to meet with us when they get back. They were so sweet and they are honestly seeking truth and so its really cool to see and watch they faith grow in small steps. We had dinner with the Grimshaws who I found out sister Grimshaw is April's ( Trisha's sister) Best friend and she Knows Matt and Trisha! They stayed with them I think a few times Crazy right! haha we were so excited! Later that night we visited a few families that have been participating in the 40-day fast and it had been so amazing to hear there experiences with it and feel of the spirit that comes with it! 

Its been amazing to see the hand of the Lord in this work. He it the one who is leading it and I am so grateful that He has allowed me to be here and used me to be the best tool for this work that I can be. I am so grateful for the Atonement that has allowed me to become better and had been such a huge part of my life. I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!
