“The pursuit of easy things makes men weak”

Witnessed my first baptism this past week on Saturday! It was such a pleasure to see. There were 7 of us Hermana’s that took some part in teaching this man, and it was amazing to all come together and witness this baptism. What a joy. We all sung a beautiful hymn acapella too. I didn’t get a chance to tell him, S___, congratulations until I found him in the parking lot. I told him I was very happy for him and good luck! He looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Estoy muy agradecido para usted”, meaning he’s very grateful to me. Such a humble man.

Saturday night Hermana Madsen and I went over to this one house of former investigators to see if anyone was home. We’ve stopped by twice and sometimes nobody would be home or it would just be a bad time. We finally met I___ who’s one of the people who lives in this house and she allowed us to come in. I asked her why the missionaries from before stopped teaching her and it seems like she’s just a very busy person and hard to get a hold of. We taught her of the Book of Mormon and by the end she said it’s funny because one day she was cleaning her house and the Book of Mormon was on top of her kitchen counter. She was going to throw it away and thought “ehh, maybe not” and put it in a drawer. A week later she gets a knock on the door from Hermana Madsen and me. I specifically told her, “I promise there’s a reason you still have that book.. that’s no coincidence.”

Transfer calls were this past weekend and Hermana Madsen and I are staying together another transfer in good old Woodstock! 🙂 Two people asked me how long I’ve been on the mission and I don’t ever think about it until I’m asked. 4 months people! That’s really young but at the same time I think where has the time gone? I’m officially DONE being trained tomorrow! The mission is being split this upcoming week which was another reason that transfers were a big deal because where you were called this transfer effects that mission that you’re going to be staying in. I knew I was going to be in Chicago mission. City is just my thing 😉 I have many friends that are in the Chicago West mission, but hey, that just means we can all email now haha. I love you all. The Spirit puts some fire in my behind every single day to go out and work. I realized super early out here that I can’t really afford to be a lazy missionary if I want success. But now I realize I can’t be a lazy missionary because that’s just not who I am.

Keep the faith. And keep it fresh!

I love you ALL.
