Week 44 11/22/2010

Subject: gobble gobble!!!

Happy Turkey week everyone!! i hope everyone had a good week! did ash have the baby yet?! Whats everyone doin for thanksgiving!?!

This week was kinda crazy! Tuesday was full of service. Our investigator Karen has been really sick the past couple weeks, something wrong with her colon. Tuesday morning she called us and asked us to come over. We went to the grocery store and got her some stuff that her doctor told her to eat and then we cleaned up some of her house while she laid on the couch cuz she was so warn out. We went tracting for a couple hours after that and then we went to the cheneys and helped sister cheney around her house a little bit which got all 8 of her kids to help so we got things done pretty fast. Wednesday we had our usual service at the museum. We had a couple really good lessons with the frandsens and then with this girl named liz that we met the week before. She used to live in vegas and had the sister missionaries over for dinner every Wednesday and really liked it. So we’re gonna see if we can start that up again with her and her husband. She has lots of questions about everything and shes really open but shes a little hesitant because her parents are catholic and shes afraid they’ll get mad at her. We’ll work on it. so Wednesday night we got to go to iowa city and stay the night at the elzingas! When we got to iowa city we went and saw the flynns first. Oh my gosh I miss them! I miss iowa city so bad!! We stayed and saw them for awhile and then we went to the elzingas for the rest of the night. We had dinner over there and anna came!! i love her! It was soo much fun!! The next morning we got up and went to the stake center to go from there to Nauvoo. Sister felix and I rode with a couple of the other sisters. We thought we knew how to get there but somehow we ended up in Missouri so we had to find our way back to Illinois. So we got to be in 3 different states that day, it was a nice little road trip! Lol.

So we got to Nauvoo eventually and had a really good conference. Sister jergensen and the other sr. sisters spoke along with president jergensen for a bit. After that we went and had lunch at a place across the street from the temple and after lunch we all went and did a session at the temple!! It was awesome!!! I love that temple!!! We didn’t get back to our apartment that night until about 11 I was sooo tired!!! So Friday was kinda crazy, we had our weekly planning which usually takes about 3 hours and later that day we got a phone call from president jergensen saying that he needed us to cancel all our appointments for the rest of the day because he needed to make some changes with some other missionaries and we needed to be in davenport later that day. So we had to pack sister felix’ stuff and went to davenport that night and made the switch. So sister felix is in a different area and I am still in Maquoketa but im with sister frisby now. So far shes pretty cool. She’s from the bay area and she’s got 2 transfers left. Transfers are next week so I don’t know if she’ll stay here though or if I even will but we’ll find out next week I guess. Saturday was Saturday, tracted most of the day and visited some members and then Sunday I was soo lucky and I got to give a talk in sacrament!!! My favorite! I told brother buttars (one of the branch counselors) that he better have a bucket up there for me to throw up in. Karen did come to church again this week which was awesome!!

That was about it for our week though. This week we’re having thanksgiving dinner with the cheneys of course with a couple of the elders. It’ll defiantly be a different thanksgiving for me but im excited, it’ll be pretty fun!!!! I hope everyone has an awesome week and an awesome thanksgiving! Thank you everyone for all your love, prayers and support! I love you all!!!!!

Till next time (next Wednesday)

Sister C
