I'm expecting!!! :)

On Wednesday, we had MLC at the mission home and then we had zone training on Friday. We went to the Lenexa zone! And then during zone lunch, is when I got the lovely call from the Assistants about my baby! haha. Saturday we did like a triple exchange with sisters for three of us to go to the trainers meeting at the mission home. Sister Vest is the best ps. She makes the yummiest breakfasts and lunches for us :)

selfies in front of the mission home for all these meetings :)

ah! I love the sisters in this mission so much. quick hangout in our apartment to end our crazy triple exchange/trio thing :)

Crazy cool miracle!: we got a call from a member that used to be in my last area saying that there was a guy that he works with occasionally as attorneys and his friend knew that he was Mormon and called him up earlier that week and they talked for a couple hours on the phone (ps. before that convo they had literally had like one 20 minute conversation 3 months ago AND he remembered he was Mormon!) Long story short, this guy has been living LDS standards for the past 10 years and has been researching the church online and wants to learn more! He teaches law at KU and works as an attorney. He has just been getting sick of all of his social interactions at work leading to something with alcohol and bars. He came to YSA church for the first time yesterday! We met him when he walked in the door and after sacrament (which was the best ever.. there was a sick homecoming talk and other talks that pretty much taught everything we teach as missionaries) all the RM members overwhelmed him with welcoming him in and he LOVED it! I am so sad to probably have to leave before we start teaching him! He is so cool! But don't ever forget the example we all set for others. My goal is to always be a good example for others.

Connie also came to church! We had an awesome lesson at a members home after dinner one night and we asked her if she would be able to make it and she said with a smile on her face, I'll surprise you! haha. She is amazing. I just love her so much!

Saturday after the trainers meeting, we went over to Liz's house and helped her clean her room for a few hours and then she took us out to dinner :)

she always takes pictures of us during dinner/lunch, so for tradition..

We had an amazing new member lesson with Liz this Thursday with one of the YSA members. We had her teach us the Restoration and it was so good!! She is adorable and drew all these things on her iPad as visuals for us during the lesson. She told us that as she was preparing and reading the First Vision, she just felt again so strongly that Joseph Smith truly was a prophet. I know that he was. I am so grateful to have prophets on the earth today to lead and guide us. Liz started 2 Nephi 2 which I am pumped about! During the lesson it clicked with her as to why we put such an emphasis on the Book of Mormon. It is because it was literally written just for us. It was kept sacred for 1400+ years and brought forth for us in this last dispensation - when we would need it to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. If you haven't read the Book of Mormon, read it. I promise you will not regret it.

oh also! during our family ward church, we taught a young woman during YW because she was the only one in the class and she is actually a foreign exchange student from Paris, France! She is 16 and here for 3 weeks! She just flew in Saturday at midnight and then came to church with the member who is hosting her. She had never heard about the church before. We got to teach her the Restoration and it was so incredible! The Spirit was so strong and she was just smiling the whole time!! We are getting her a French Book of Mormon to start reading and take back home with her :)

TODAY we went to the ZOO for our last pday together!! I seriously LOVE Sister Delange! I am going to miss hanging out with her all day every day and seeing so many miracles with her!! and our addictions to sharing each other's flavored water enhancers #mio

look! there are zebras beneath us!!! :)

One short thought for you all today about obedience. During church, one of the speakers asked us to ask ourselves this questions, "If we don't want to live God's law now, what makes you think you will want to live with God and His laws later?" He shared a scripture in Alma 34:34 "Ye cannot say, when ye are brought to that awful crisis, that I will repent, that I will return to my God. Nay, ye cannot say this; for that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world." I know that obedience to God's commandments is so important for each of us. It is truly how we prepare to meet God, which is the whole reason we are here on earth.

Anyways, I love you all so much! I love hearing from you all and am so grateful for your support. I absolutely love being a missionary and serving my Savior. This is the best work in the entire world and my time as a full time representative of Him is going by too quickly!!

Have fun in the sun for me!!

Hello family!!

I am expecting!! haha, aka.. I get to have a new missionary from the
MTC as a companion next transfer! :) I am so stoked! I love the faith
that new missionaries have and I know we are going to see so many
miracles this next transfer together!

This week has been so awesome! We had MLC on Wednesday and we found
out that Elder Neil L. Anderson (one of the 12 Apostles) is coming to
our mission next Monday to speak to us!

Last pday, we went to the plaza with some sisters that are serving in
Independence and Liz for the fourth. It was so fun and we treated
ourselves to some chessecake at Cheesecake Factory :) Liz's family
had us over for barbecue for dinner that evening as well. Also, we
didn't get blown up by the bombs that go off in the hood of KC so that
was definitely a plus!!
