Hey Family!!!! How are ya all doin??? I hope real good!!! Ok so WOW. This was a crazy week. Such a good week but exhausting!! So there is a family in our ward named the Burmoods who are AMAZING. I love them! Brother Burmood has a best friend named Travis that we have been teachin the lessons too. (They are the ones who have taught me all I know about butcherin deer and turkeys:)) haha sooo we went over this week and butchered a turkey and cut it and washed it up then ate it for dinner then afterwards had our lesson with Travis. The lesson went AMAZING!!!!! I was soo nervous to ask him to be baptized because the Burmoods have been workin with him forever and he has never wanted to be baptized....but I did it. anddddd HE SAID YES!!!! He teared up and said he knew this was true and wanted to be apart of it. :):):):)After he left the Burmoods FREAKED out and came and hugged me and cried they were sooo happy!! It was awesome!!!:) They said that no missionary has ever connected with Travis so much and taught him in the way he needed!! They prayed and thanked God for sending me here:) It was the sweetest thing. Afterwards we were all talkin. The ward knew they were takin us sister missionaries out of Hastings so Brother B said that T said me and Sis F HAD to be at his baptism....sooo the B are gonna come get me wherever I am at so I can give a talk at T's baptism:) It was SUCH a good way to leave this area.

Hey Family!!! How was all ya's week this week? I hope super good! I heard about the whole "ebola" world wide epidemic deal.....scary!!! Well...this week was a really good week!! Lots happened:) Soooo first off we went on exchanges so i went down to Kearney and we saw TONS of miralces. Handed out 2 BOMs and they were both SOO prepared and solid! It was awesome!! Then we had the AP's come and give an awesome training on handing out BOMS. so our mission is havin a huge focus on handin out more BOMS and man have we seen miracles bcause of that! Ill tell ya 2 quick stories about it! So one night it was 8:40 at night and we still hadnt handed one out...so we were stoppin and askin anyone we saw...no one would take one! Everyone was rejectin us! it was cold and dark and late and we were in a sketchy part of town so we decided we should leave...we were gettin in the car and I saw this guy comin out from under the bridge smokin and lookin all gangsta like. haha me and my comp looked at eachother got outta the car and went up and talked to him. He ended up takin the BOM and thankin God for sendin angels to him tonight. He was super low and losin all hope and this proved to him that God heard and answered his prayers. It was soo cool:) another one was well...embarassing. but hey whatever works right??? so it was 8:50 saturday night and we were real low on gas so we went to the gas station to get some. it was real cold so i was dancin around tryin to keep warm.....then well naturally it turned into a dance off between me and my comp. We thought we were the only ones at the gas station!!! its a small town...NO ONE WAS THERE. buttttttt this family had apparently drivin up and were stoppin and watchin us...laughin their heads off. soo we ended up talkin to em and after we all laughed we were able to share a message with them and they took a BOM and gave us their number!!!! It was awesome:) haha ummmm some other great things that have happened was we got to go to one of our peoples weddings! it was sooo cute:) we talked to a ton of people there:) ummmm oh we got to butcher another deer! this time practically all by ourselves!!!!:) but...we got deer ticks again!:( Then....oh heres another embarasing thing that happened....so i lost my ring at one of our Less Actives house and was on the ground lookin for it, so I lifted up this cute lil blanket to check under there and the blanket hit the fan, flew across the room, landed in the candle and sparked up. haha luckily they are super chill and we all laughed about it forever....but the little girl was sad so Im buyin her a new blanket today....haha. OH Good news though.....i found the ring. So no worries there folks.

Hey Family!!!! Hope ya had a good week!! Well....I have a quick sad story for you...sooo one day 2 sister missionaries come home and see a sign "for rent" on their front lawn. They get all sad and think to themselves.."oh no....im gonna miss my neighbor...I really liked her." Then they continue on their days without really carin too much....then many days later,their blinds broke so the landlord comes over to fix it and then says, "man were really gonna miss you guys around here...we really liked havin ya!".....the confused missionaries said "What? where we goin?" to which the landlord responded, "Oh...how the heck do you not know? I got a notice awhile ago you guys are movin out before Halloween." TWIST. the girls are us and we STILL haven't heard a single thing from the mission that we are movin or whats goin on...but we have had people come through and look at the apartment sooo we know were movin out for sure....but why when and where we don't know. My comp is goin home this transfer....and we think that they are shuttin down our area? who knows! sooo moral AND point of the story....don't send letters here! Send them to the mission office cuz I have no idea whats goin on or where I'll be:) Anyways.....we had some cool stuff happen! So ya know how our car got wrecked? well we had to go in the back to sign a check for it to get fixed and was talkin to this real nice lady who reminds me exactly of grandma Wilson:) We got talkin and she asked us a bunch of questions....I ended up askin her if we could come by and share our message with her.....and she said.........YES she actually said YES!!! she would love that!!!:) haha so later this week we did and it went awesome!!! we are very excited about her! OH and she used to live in Le Mars!!! How cool is that??? another cool thing was...remember the wicken lady? wellll she came to church and watched general conference again this week!! awesome!!! and yesterday for the final session of general conference we watched it at our investigators house with them! it was awesome! Elder Bednar's talk was AMAZING for them.
