Week 26 7/19/2010

Aloha, hola, ya ta hay, shalom….HELLO everyone!!! Thank you so much for the package mom!! I love the pictures and the lake powell stuff! Happy late birthday sister!!!! Sounds like it was pretty fun! Amy’s gonna love efy! Im so excited for her!

Lets see this week in iowa city….we were super busy all week. We had interviews with president and sister jergensen on Tuesday which took up most of the day but they are amazing! Im so excited they are here. Oh my gosh I almost forgot….we don’t have to wear nylons anymore!!!!!!! Happy day!!! Now if they just said we don’t have to wear skirts anymore that’d be the best day ever! Lol. But then I would look normal and missionaries aren’t supposed to look normal so I guess I should just be grateful for what ive got. :)

We’ve been working really hard to find new investigators this week and we got a couple this week. We started teaching a lady named shay and her daughter destiny this week. Both of them commited to be baptized during the first lesson. Destiny is 8 and loves learning about jesus so we’re workin with them. Gretchens not going to be baptized this Saturday but we moved it back a couple days to next Tuesday. She was way too stressed about having it this Saturday but its still gonna happen. Anna is amazing as usual. She’s been sharing her testimony with everyone. We’re starting to teach her friend deb for the first time tonight.

So we have this lady in our ward named tasha, I love her! Her husbands not a member and has never liked the missionaries but he invited us to dinner on Thursday. So we went out to the amana colonies (an early german settlement, lots of tourist stuff) for dinner. We got to see the worlds largest rocking chair, if that’s not exciting I don’t know what is!!! When we got back from there we went and picked up our mini missionaries. Oh my gosh, they are amazing!! Sister hoff and sister folkman both almost 17 yrs old. We kept them pretty busy this weekend. Every appointment we went to with them was awesome! The spirit was so strong and we set 3 baptismal dates with them here. The people in charge of the program didn’t want the girls to have and “bad experiences” so we were kind of nervous about that cuz you definitely get your fare share of bad experiences on a mission, like having someone spit in you face. Lol. and you cant really do anything about that. But they loved it.we were so sad to have them leave.

well that was this week in a nut shell. I love iowa!!!! Take away the humidity and it would be perfect other than that its amazing!!!!! I hope everyone has an amazing week and a awesome rest of the summer vacation!! That reminds me, when is steph leavin for school?

I love you all more than you could know! Thank you for everything!!!!

Till next time (which will be next wed. because of transfers)

Sister C

  1. I've been keeping an eye on the weather in Iowa City lately. The temps have been in the mid to high 80s with thunderstorms and lots of clouds. If you've ever been in that kind of weather you know YUCK!
