Missionary Work

I love this work. It's his work! And I know it'll go only the way he
wants it to go.
So happy to be his servant for the next 6 weeks with a badge on and
then the rest of my life with a testimony I gained by wearing that
badge with his name on it.
Love you all. Sorry this isn't super full of details but I have no time.

Hanging out in city no big deal 
Passed out free lemonade with book of Mormons. 
The sweatiest day of my life. It was sssoooo hot!
Best district ever, I've never seen a district who has worked so hard to see miracles happen in our area and in our ward before. These elders mothers would be so proud!

I didn't have a Mexican hat so I just wore a bike helmet. Ha 

Best zone ever

I'm the one in the orange baseball cap

Happy Father's Day

Hello everyone!

We had such a great week!!
We have done so much finding !!! We have a goal to contact 1000 people
as a district the past 2 weeks and it has been so draining and
fantastic I love being a missionary so much!!
There's two things that happened this week that was way cool!
1 . We had a Father's Day activity. Where we made 200 cupcakes and
then when everyone came we wrote a spiritual thought, a plate of
cupcakes and we sent those families to visit less active families and
investigators to show love and invite them to the activity and then we
all gathered back to eat and have a good time. And it was a fantastic
time! Everyone shared their experience as to what it felt to visit
their people and there was such a sweet spirit!! And everyone was so
happy to do some missionary work! And then we ended by bearing our
testimony of our fathers and I weeped like a baby because I love my dad and he is awesome!

2 . We had a youth out with us who is a rockstar and we went to
cemeteries because it was filled with people visiting their passed
away father and he taught everyone about the plan of salvation. It was
one of the boldest things we have done but it has been our dream. The
reaction of those sweet children was priceless and they hugged us and
thanked us for reaching out to them during their hard times. We got
all their info and send them off to the missionaries they belonged to.
Although we didn't find anyone for ourselves to teach we know we did
what Heavenly Father wanted us to do.

I love this work! It's the most important work ever! I love Chicago. I
love the polluted air, the interesting people, the yummy food, the
trains, the buildings, and their beautiful flag!
Have a great week everyone!

Warning: If You Blink A Week Will Go By

Hello family and friends!
This week has flown by!!
So many wonderful things happened!
We had amazing lessons with this couple, Tania and mike. They have
been going through so much in their lives that they have been so
humbled and prepared to hear the restored gospel.
They cried throughout the lesson and were so happy to feel the spirit
in their home.
They always talk about they feel so much peace every time we leave.
We also got in with an investigator called Michelle and we took a
member with us who taught the whole lesson and answered all of her
questions and concerns! It was beautiful!
We also had a wonderful experience with all missionaries going to ward council.
We were able to talk about the ward and things we have seen that can
improve. It was awesome to see all the leaders get right on it and we
all made a plan of action. I realized that things always work out when
you work in unity especially when you are trying to hasten the Lords
Members and missionary are meant to work in unity in every aspect of the work.
I have seen it work so many times!So sorry this is so short. I honestly can't think of everything that
happened this week, time is just going by so fast that I'm scared
I love being a missionary! Every second of it, good or bad times. It's
so worth it!!
Love you all!
Have a great week!
