Area:  Gurnee
Companion:  Sister Grant

To my favorite people in the world!!


The scripture I want to share with you this week is what I read this morning in 2 Nephi.

2 Nephi 26:33
For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and fee, male and female; and he remembereth the hearthen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.

We are ALL God's Children and He loves us all SO very much!!!  I know that!!!  He LOVES YOU!!!!

WOOT WOOT!!!  Sister Grant and I are staying in Gurnee!!!!  It is going to e a rockin awesome transfer!!  These last few weeks have been awesome and we have done a ton!~!  So it is going to be a great transfer and I am so excited to stay here.  I love the people here so much!!  There are miracles happening everywhere!!  :D

We sang this in church Sunday
This week was solid!  Mostly...The only sad part is getting a text Saturday night and J**** telling us that he wouldn't be able to come to church because he was helping his family...Oh my goodness I was SO MAD!!!  He couldn't come last week because of a family thing and same with this week and he promised us.  Can I just say Satan is sure doing a good job at keeping him from Church!  He knows that is the thing he need to REALLY Know for himself if he need to enter the waters of baptism and he is keeping him from that.  Yeah it made me sad, but after that we had an awesome lesson with J****!  GUESS WHAT?!?  He said the closing prayer!!  I was shocked.  He honestly said it like it was no big deal.  I am still a little shocked at this because the entire time I have met with him he wouldn't pray for us.  It was SO SO SO wonderful!!!  After I told him that was awesome!  The best prayer ever!  Or something like that.  We had a great lesson at finishing the Plan of Salvation which actually was not what we planned but it was wonderful!  He really is having a desire to learn and it is awesome!!!

We had a Great lesson with J**** at the S****.  The best part about this lesson was after we "closed everything" I guess you could say when we asked him what he feels when he reads the Book of Mormon.  He told us that he feels peace and feels good.  It took us like five minutes to help him understand that THAT FEELING is the Spirit and then he made the connection that if he read everyday that he could feel that way everyday.  We said yes!  So we re invited him to read every day.  It really was awesome!!  He is doing so well, he just needs to come to church.

We have been teaching Sister Grant's friend this week and it is still super awesome!!  We are hoping to Skype with him soon because we feel like it will help him be more comfortable with meeting with the missionaries locally.  We asked him if he would be willing to meet with some where he is at but he isn't ready for that yet.  He is praying and loving it!  It is really great.

Oh man we met with M**** this week!!  We haven't taught her in forever!  Oh my goodness she is so ready to hear the gospel.  We had such a wonderful lesson on the Atonement.  We told her how families can be together forever and she really loves that.  She wants her family to be involved.  It is just hard because she is sooo busy and it is really hard to meet with her.  We are hoping to keep having short simple lessons with her.  Every time we meet her I just love her more!

We had a lesson with P**** this week, another one we haven't been able to meet with for a long time. We might have to drop him because he doesn't really want to pray to ask if this church is true.  He knows it is good but isn't willing to ask so that is sad.  :(

We be silly Sisters
It has been a crazy week and I can't remember what happened but it was super awesome!

Oh so Monday night we had FHE (family home evening) for the two adorable boys who are both under 8.  Last week we finally talked to their mom and got to know her and it was the BEST.  We invited her to join us on Monday and she did!  We had a cool cut out of the first vision and we also got to teach her about it and ask her questions and learn more about her religious background.  We invited her to pray and to ask about the Church.  She said that she will see us next week!  AHH, it is just wonderful.  If she learns of the truthfulness of this glorious gospel not only will it make her life better and bring her family so much happiness but it will bring her boyfriend back to the church who is less active and maybe even his brother!  That would be AWESOME!  So totally praying for that!!

We had interviews with President Woodbury this week and he is so amazing and I know that he is a man of God.

Well things are really going wonderful and I am excited to be staying here in Gurnee!!  I really do love it here.  We have so much work to do!!
