“Happy Easter!!!”

This last week + 1 day went by really quickly! There were a lot of cool things that happened!

We got to teach Roger last Monday. He is awesome! He is really nice and seemed to understand the Restoration of the Gospel pretty well, and he was pretty excited to read the Book of Mormon. He wants to come to church as well, but he wasn't able to make it because of Easter, sadly. 

We also got to see a family who lives nearby our place. Elder Scott and Strunk got to teach the husband on Friday while we were on exchanges! They are a super nice family though, hopefully we'll get to see them again this week and get them out to church!  Also, the “M’s” are still doing well, but now Sis. M is sick and so we're waiting until this Thursday, but we are really excited. We also got to visit with the Mullins, a less active family, 

So we had a fireside on Sunday night. Sadly, not as many people as we were hoping came! We planned it to be short so it didn't interrupt Easter too much but it didn't work out. We had a few members come, but that was all. Luckily we did talk to a lot of people who we invited to the fireside who now we can go back and teach! 

Easter morning was a little weird for me. I woke up really dizzy and couldn't walk around or get up and down very easily, so I was very slow going. We were able to get to church, but after sacrament meeting, we left. Luckily after getting home and sleeping and getting my appetite back I felt better. It was still bothering me yesterday but not nearly as much. Sis. Scott, the mission nurse, thinks my ears are just plugged so hopefully it's totally better by tomorrow! 

Yesterday we had a good day of interviews with President Salisbury! He is awesome and it's crazy to think that soon he'll be gone. That will be a sad day. Anyways, then yesterday we did a bunch of walking and we met this guy named Dakota. He called us over asking who we were because he'd seen us walking around so much! So we talked with him a little bit about the plan of salvation and he invited us back! He's from Indianapolis and he has a huge dog that was mix of mastiff, German shepherd and wolf, so he warned us to not get very close to his house, but we're going to teach him again later this week! 

Like mentioned previously, I went on exchanges to Spencer with Elder Kruger! He came out with me and he's from Canada. He's a funny missionary and it was a pretty good day. We also ate some delicious food he cooked followed by some cookies:)  It was a good time!

I hope all of you have had a good week and had a good Easter! My spiritual thought of the week comes from Easter’s central message: The Resurrection of Jesus Christ! I want everyone to read through Mosiah 16:7-9 in the Book of Mormon, they are some of my favorite verses, especially verse 9. Christ is the light we must look to, to be freed from spiritual darkness! His light never dims, and it never will! 

Take luck!!
