Dear Family and Friends,
This has been a great week! So for the 4th of July we went out to a member's home and they bought
all these fireworks. They brought out this giant box of fireworks and lit
it. It was really cool...until it fell on its side and started shooting
off fireworks back at us in their driveway. Naturally I'm great in a war
zone/ crisis and I shot up and ran away. A firework went right past me
and exploded and my ear started ringing, but no real damage was done. It
was pretty crazy.
We have used our trio power and are teaching
up a storm. We met with one of our newer investigators named Kofi. He is
from Ghana, Africa and works in the oil field. He has such great
questions and has been seeking for the truth for so long, but has not
been able to find it. We had a great lesson and answered a few of his
questions. We will be meeting with him again this week so I'll keep you
We are also teaching a 14 year old girl named
Breanna. She is full of energy and understands the doctrine of the
gospel well. She is on date to get baptized on August 1st. There was a
baptism this past weekend and she was able to come. Sister Mansell and I
sang a special musical number at the baptism which was fun. I've loved
being able to share my love of music out in the mission field and we
might even join our ward choir if we can.
So when I first
got to Bismarck we went through our Area Book and Sister Andrews updated
Sister Mansell and me about all the people we are teaching and I found
out we are teaching Anne Fields. I met Anne when I was in Fargo and I
wasn't able to teach her because she wasn't in my area. I know Anne is
one of the reasons why I'm here in Bismarck. We had a lesson with her
this week and I had it confirmed to me that one of the reasons I'm here is for
I'm excited to see what miracles we will see this week! I love you all!
I'm a minion! Look at me!
