Sorry I didn't keep track of my time super well and now I have to go..

This week was awesome! Our ward that was having a hard time with missionary work blew up this week and we found a bunch of new people to teach! They are mostly families so we are really excited! 

We walked a lot and talked to a lot of amazing people. And I also made monkey bread! It was amazing.

We had Zone Conference where I got to see Sister Jebe and Sister Foulke!! I love them! 

We've had a lot of amazing blessings this week and The Lord's work is amazing. Nothing is better than serving the children of God!

I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Monday, March 6, 2017 - Pioneer children sang as they walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked.....................

This week we walked a lot! If you couldn't tell by the subject.. haha but it was a lot of fun! We walked the entire day Tuesday and nothing happened... literally nothing.. we just walked from one end of our area to the other.. we were getting pretty discouraged by the end of the night.. but we kept going! 
Walking day! I made sure I had all the Book of mormons I needed!
Even though we didn't find a lot of investigators that day I still got rid of all of them by the end of the day! Thankfully because they were getting heavy!

We were on our way to Roberts baptism interview and we were running a bit late and we saw a lady walking from the bus stop with three HUGE target bags full of towels! So we asked if we could help her and she said that would be great! It was amazing because people never let us help! So we walked up the hill to her apartment and we talked the whole way up and she was so sweet and we asked if we could come back and talk to her again and she said she would love to! 

Roberts baptism! This family will be in the temple in one year!
By that time we were late for Roberts interview and we were basically running to their apartment. When we got there the elders weren't there yet... so we waited for them and caught our breath and it turned out to be fine. Robert was interviewed by our district leader Elder Andersen and he walked out of the room, threw his hands in the air and said "I PASSED!" Haha it was so funny. 

Went on exchanges with Hermana Ludlow! Every time she prays she does it in Spanish so I got to practice my Spanish a bit! And we did language study!

Another cute picture from the relief society room!
I learned this week that we can't ever pass up an opportunity to serve someone because that's a way to open them up to the gospel! We have been praying for opportunities to serve people and show them love and we have seen blessings from it!
Sister Hazen and I sitting in the car last week because I didn't really have any pictures for last weeks email.. and then I forgot to send it.. so here it is now!
