Week 65 04/18/2011

 i love iowa!!!!

Good morning family!!! Hows it goin? How was everyones week? I hope everyone has an awesome spring break.

We had a pretty good week last week. We had some really good lessons with some people we’re teaching right now. We’re teaching a lady named candy right now. Her son is a member and on Wednesday we met with her and taught her the plan of salvation and she loved it. She loved it and talked about how she really believes it and it brings her so much hope. We also are starting to teach a lady named soon-yi. Shes from korea and is married to a member that has just started coming back to church the last couple of months. They’re an awesome family and we’re going to be meeting with her a lot more and helping her read the book of Mormon and slowly teach her the lessons. The whole concept of god is completely new to her and the language barrier makes it a little harder but we’re just going to take our time to help her as much as we can. We met with keith again on Friday and were able to talk to him about the basics of the gospel of jesus Christ and he really liked it. We talked a lot about repentance and baptism and what we need to do to get to that point in our lives and what happens after we’re baptized. So we had some pretty good solid lessons this week. We got to have dinner with a lot of the members this week and got to know them alittle better. The members here are so on top of everything and are asking us what they can do to help us and they are just so awesome when it comes to finding people for us to teach. Theres one family that we had dinner with last night, the murphys that are trying to work with so many people right now and trying to get them interested in learning more about the church. They’re awesome! Oh my gosh mom…you’ll never believe me, maybe I should have sister whitaker tell you but the other night we went over to this one families house for dinner and and we went to the table and I got a whif of something nasty and I had to eat……FISH!!! It was horrible. All I did was pray real hard that heavenly father would take away my taste buds or something…anything. lol. And I ate as much of it as I could. Im pretty sure I covered that thing in more salt than ive ever had. Lol. And then sister whitaker and i went and got ice cream after dinner to wash it down. We spent a lot of time trying to meet people that were being taught before we got here but didn’t have much luck with that so hopefully this week we’ll be able to. On Saturday we got to do service at the family museum they have here in Bettendorf and we get to help little kids with science and art projects two subject that I am not good at but it was so fun! We get to do that every Saturday. So yesterday was an interesting Sunday. We had candy at church and she always has her grandkids with her so sister whitaker and I came prepared this week so candy could actually pay attention in sacrament. We got a bunch of little kid bible stories, coloring books, fruit snacks..what else does a kid need. The youngest kids just threw everything and screamed the most horrible scream ever and tried to bite me.

Anyway, tomorrow we’re going to des moines for leadership training. So we’ll be staying at the mission home with all the other missionaries and be there tomorrow and Wednesday. It’s gonna be awesome! I love going to leadership training and zone conferences and stuff with all the other missionaries. Just being in a room full of missionaries is an awesome feeling. The spirit is soo strong. Well, I think that’s about it for this week here in iowa!!! Hopefully the weather gets nicer. I hope you all have an awesome spring break. I love you all soo much! Thank you for everything!

Till next time,

Sister C
