We have been doing Face 2 Face calls in our zone, studying the BOM together!

 We got to go to the Blue and Gold banquet for the scouts, and it was Starwars theme:)
 Sister Nelson and I :)
lWow, what a week! Well to start off I just want to let you all know that the church put out a new Easter video out!!!!! GO WATCH IT at followhim.mormon.org! Please also feel free to share it with those you love, share your love for Christ with everyone! I know that for me, the main reason I am here on a mission is to share my love for our Savior with the people of PA, but we can reach even MORE as we ALL share this with our friends, families, etc... #Hallelujah 

This week on Wednesday we had Zone Conference! It was so great! We heard inspiring messages from President and Sister Johnson, the Assistants, we learned about the #Hallelujah initiative, amazing musical numbers, and testimonies of departing missionaries. So one strange thing about this zone conference, more than half of my companions gave their departing testimonies because they will be going home in the next 2 transfers (Sister Talbot, Smith, Jarvis, Landa, Palmer, plus a lot of the other sisters I was their STL at one point!) Its also crazy because I will be giving my departing testimony the next zone conference! Time sure does fly! Fastest 15 months of my life! I was also able to gain a LOT of motivation during this conference, we were able to work really hard and teach quite a few people the rest of the week! Man, I just want to take this last 3 months and work super hard, I love being a missionary, the people of Pennsylvania, and most importantly my Savior, Jesus Christ!

Thursday was one of the days we were able to teach lots of lessons! It was such a good day! We were able to meet with a Less active member that we have been trying since I got to this area (4 months)! We were finally able to meet with James and Nicole again, and she came to church on Sunday! We also saw Olivia, last time we invited her to pray before studying, well she did that and was able to connect everything that she was studying together and had some great spiritual incite to share! We talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and re-invited her to be baptized, she said that she is working to know that this is true and when she knows that, she will do it! We also taught our investigator Bryan, we talked about the priesthood, he said that he wants to live by a higher standard to receive the priesthood! Those are just a few of the many great lessons we had this week! 

Friday we were Weekly planning, and it was a SUPER nice day outside, so we decided to go outside to plan. Well one of our neighbors has a big Golden Retriever who he let out to go to the bathroom.. well as most dogs do he ran up to us an wanted some love, this dog then proceeded to PEE ON ALL OF OUR STUFF! hahahahaha! SO gross! We had to wash the 3 blankets we had out there.. and ended up doing the rest of our planning inside.. 

We get fed REALLY well here in Wexford! On Saturday we have a lunch and dinner appointment. Well both of them wanted to take us out to eat, and we were STUFFED by the end of the day!

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know he lives and loves us! I know that because of Him all things are possible! I am grateful that I can share that message with the people that I love!!!
