 This is what happened when Sister Nelson goes to the bathroom
Hahaha so sister Nelson is super funny, but also super quiet so nobody even knows, so I captured some moments.. :) She decided it would be a good idea to play hide and seek, our apt is tiny, so this is the place the found.

Oh and we didn't unlock our car, so this is how we found the elders..

This week was great! We got to go on exchanges! I got to go to Pitt 3 with Sister McDonald! I love her so much! She is probably one of the funniest people, but she is also so loving, I could tell as she interacted with the people there in her area that she truly does love them and cares about what is going on in their lives! I really don't think I have ever laughed so much in my life though! Like my head and cheek hurt so bad! Haha so we did Service at a food pantry with a bunch of older people, there were some brownies and one of the guys was joking that they were "magic brownies", one of the ladies looked confused, so another one of the ladies was trying to explain what that was to her.. Haha. Also, fun fact, The Dance moms dance studio is in their area! That was cool! 
This week we taught Olivia, we really want her to gain a Testimony of the Book of Mormon. We know that she will be able to recieve answers to her questions if she does! So our commitment to her was to read from the Book of Mormon every day, and we took the questions that she has so we can further study them and help her, but I know that the Book of Mormon and the spirit will help her Much more than we can.
We also saw Vikram, he seems really golden, but he did tell us he had plans to get baptized into another faith, right after that though he asked if he could still come see what our church was like, and he came to church yesterday! And not only church but to an Interfaith gathering at our ward building after, he was at the church for 6 hours!!! We asked him what he thought of everything, and he said it was awesome and he loved it! He then confirmed our visit for this coming Saturday! I'm really excited to see where he ends up! Haha so funny story about his visit, so we were teaching the Plan of Salvation and talking about our life on earth and how we need to have faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, receive the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. His parents were watching TV in another room with the volume turned up pretty loud, he went to shut the door then came back "My parents are definitely going to hell" hahaha.
That interfaith gathering was super interesting, it's cool to hear what other faiths believe. They definitely do have truths, it definitely strengthened my testimony even more that we truly do have the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ! I am so grateful for at knowlege and belief!
We also had zone training this week! It was great, learned about working more with members! This ward is seriously so great and so willing to help! I love them!
There is a less active member who Sister Maya and I had tried a few times and she had never really let us in. This week Sister Nelson and I went over and she let us right in and was even asking for us to share a message! Hearts are being softened!
That was my week! Hope you all had a great week! Love you all! Feel free to email me or even a good ol snail mail is always appreciated!  Jessica.oliver@myldsmail.net and
