Wow! What a week it has been. Busy, busy. Some highlights include:
- We have a new investigator!! Fred! Fred always has Usher playing when we walk in his house. We set a bap date with Fred though!! Yay! December 13th. So that's cool. He is reading the BoM all the time and is in 2 Nephi. Now he just needs to come to church. Tina is a gem and comes with us to lessons. Her testimony is so powerful. You seriously would never think that she's only been a member for 7 months. Rockstar!
- Went on exchanges with Sister Green on Friday. Oh how I love this Sister! She and I work really well together and always have a ton of fun. I'm sad that she is leaving us soon :( But I'm super happy that I got to spend all day with her down in Kenosha. We got a huge pie from this less active and some girl scout cookies from their investigator's mom. #score But anyways. Something that I'm learning is that I just talk way to much. Remember how at the beginning of my mission I felt like I couldn't talk? Yeah, well now it's like completely the opposite. I won't shut up! Something I love about Sister Green is that she is really great at letting the Spirit fill the silence. She is a woman of few words so it's neat to see how the Spirit can really testify even when there isn't much being said.
- We had an AWESOME fireside with the youth last night. It was all about missionary work and how easy it is for everyone to be involved. It doesn't have to be handing out Book of Mormons. But it's as easy as being somebody's friend.
We showed the youth this great Mormon Message at the fireside. I laugh so hard every time I watch it. Such a great message! https://www.lds.org/youth/video/reaching-out-through-love?lang=eng
- Also, we had another bomb lesson with our investigator, Jessica! We talked a lot about personal revelation and how she doesn't feel like she's getting an answer to her prayers. We decided that we were all going to fast together. She's had a rough time making it to church weekly, so we really wanted to see her there on Sunday. While we were in ward council she texted us asking us to save her a seat!! It was magical. Such an answer to prayers!!
Also, found this great quote on a whiteboard yesterday at church: "We know we are successful if we live so that we qualify for, receive, and know how to follow the Spirit."

Well, keep reading your scriptures and saying your prayers. Hoping you all have a fantastic week. Love you!
Fred K. (a member) makes neon signs for people so we were in his workshop and I found this "m" so naturally I had to take a picture!
I live here!! Proud to be a Wisconsinite :)
Exchanges with Sister Green in Kenosha! Probably one of my favorite exchanges ever. I'm gonna miss this girl when she goes home at the end of the transfer! :( Happy we got to spend some time together though!
