Hey Family and Friends!!! Greetings from the Land of Chicago! and YES it is the Windy City!!!
So I have a little thought for you this week which comes from our ward mission leaders talk yesterday.
Missionary Work IS Friendship!!!!!
|Enjoying a warmer day tacting|
|The Book of Mormon is True!!! I know it and love it!|
I am a Missionary By......
"I am a missionary by talking to my neighbors and inviting them over for dinner when the missionaries are over."
"I am being a missionary by being nice to the kids in my class at school."
"I am being a missioanry by shoveling my neighbors sidewalks."
You can also say I am becoming more like Christ by helping my neighbors. Being a missionary is really doing your very best to be like Christ would want you to be! I love you all, and I know that you can have some really cool missionary experiences in your life IF you want them! I would be thrilled to hear them! Let me know!

This should be a good reminder because we have decided that we need to drop one of our investigators, M*** this week. It is going to be hard but we hope that she will come to us really having a desire to know more and that she will notice a difference of us not always being there. I have Faith that this is the choice that needs to happen even though I don't wan to do it and will miss her. We need to spend our time with others...even if it is knocking on doors finding them. I am praying for the best and that she'll have a change of heart, and have a desire to act on what she has learned and felt.

We had a great lesson with J*** this week! We planned to teach him the apostasy and I was like June, we have this awesome object lesson to teach you today. He was like aren't we going to watch that video. Sister Grant and I had totally forgotten that we were going to watch the restoration DVD with him. So that is what we ended up doing. He didn't read which was sad but you can see that things are starting to click. He told us he does like reading the Book of Mormon which is huge because he always tells us he Hates reading! He told us how he doesn't want to read just a few verses. If he starts reading he needs to finish all of it and he doesn't have time. We promised him if he reads he will have more energy and not be as tired. He said the most amazing closing prayer. Him praying really told us that he is coming closer to Christ. It was so ah just wonderful! I love hearing investigators pray, and hearing what is in their heart! :)
Oh yeah! We had an awesome lesson with R**** this week, just her! It was nice to just teach her and no one else. Guess what?!? She is going to take us to her neighbors and meet them so that we can teach them. She is being a better missionary then most of the members! She doesn't even know if it is true, yet. She feels that it is good though. She said that since her and J**** have been meeting

~The power went out yesterday, the church was a little dark, but it came on before we had church so that was good!

~This week is transferes? DIdn't we just have them? Hmmm. Wonder what will happen NO CLUE!!! so "am I staying or am I going" ha! The Lord knows and I'll do whatever he wants me to do! :D He knos better than us!
Transfer calls come on Saturday night but transfers don't actually happen until next week. So on Monday she will tell us if she is leaving or staying.

We had a couple of days in the 40's and it rained and cut down the piles of snow a bit. We have had 70 inches of snow since the start of the year. The warmer weather was great but now it is back to the 20's and below and feels even colder! O well
