Hey everyone!!!!!!!!!!! we had transfer call outs this week! I'm
staying her in Olney with Sister Sherrow. It will be good, we are
excited to keep working here in this area and with the ward.

This week was good, we had a lot of exchanges and got to work with a
lot of cool people.

Sister from BYUH

C. and W. are doing really well. We went over to see them again and
taught the word of wisdom again and talked more about it with them.
C. seemed to accept it more because last time that we taught it
she wasn't too willing to give up coffee, but after we explained it
more this time she seemed more accepting.

P. is from Peru and she is so cool. We met her for the first time this
week and she is interested in learning more. She has friends who are
members of the church and has been to the visitors center a few times
and seems really interested in learning more.

We also found a family with 6 kids! It is kinda crazy!!! It was nuts
with all the kids but they seemed really interested and were a cute

This week was our ward missionary activity and our ward mission leader
wanted to play dodgeball for it, but then had us think of a spiritual
thought that we could connect to dodgeball. Haha it was fun though.

Today on pday we spent the day in Annapolis and checked out the harbor
and the city.

Thanks for everything!!!!

Hey everyone!!! This week was good for us!

On Monday night a member had us over with C. and W. and some other
families in the ward for family home evening. We had bbq, played
soccer, and had a lesson about temples and families. It was really
fun. We had a good time and it is cool to see the ward reaching out to
help our investigators.

We had interviews with president and Sister Johnson this week and they
are really nice.
It was cool to get to know them a little bit better.

We found some new investigators this week, one of them is K. She has
only been here in the United States for a few months but she is really
sweet and seems to really like learning with us.
J and Family at "Why I Believe"

We met a less active member who talked to us forever about his
beliefs and wouldn't let us leave. In the end he told us he will only
come to the church for social activities not spiritual.
New Sisters from Annapolis

We have a long list of less active members that the bishop has given
us to check up on, it has been going good but we still have a lot of
people to find.

We have callouts this week it is so crazy that the transfer is almost over!!

Thanks so much for all the support!!!!

Hey everyone!!!!!!

I hope that everyone had a good Fourth of July
week!!! Things have been good here in Olney, Maryland. This week was a
week of tracting, lessons, and service!

We met with C. and W. again this week. They are doing really good. We
went to their house and we wanted to give them a baptismal
date, but when we got there they said that they had already picked one
and they want to be baptized on August 27. The sad thing is they might
be moving out of ward boundaries in the next few weeks, Now that
they know that, they might be trying to stay here in Olney.

We helped a less active this week learn how to write essays for her
praxis test. It was really good and she is progressing well and likes
to relearn about the church and the gospel.

We went to the recent convert temple trip with a young convert in our
area. It was so fun and we got to talk with other people that we have
worked with in other areas.

Today was a pretty good pday- we played mini golf with our zone, and
then got free slurpees for 7-eleven day.
Found a table for C's Daughter

Zone Conference

New Mission President

I also hit my year mark this week!

Thanks for all the support!

Hola Everyone!!


Things have been good here, our new mission president came this week
and we are meeting him tomorrow! It will be exciting, we also got a
new stake added onto our mission that is in Annapolis.

Good Friend Sister Johnson

A. and G. are doing well, the bishop found their records and they are
both members. They were really excited that their records were found,
but it was funny because G. didnt think A. ever got baptized haha but
she did. We had a good lesson with them, A. is recovering from
surgery but is doing well.

C. and W. are doing really well. They came to church for the third
time this week, and it was great. C. even bore her testimony and it
was so cute. They are doing really well and the ward adores them, they
have gotten along really well with the members.
C & W's daughter

The fourth here is fun! We weren't allowed to go to the Mall, but we
did some shopping and hanging out in Wheaton today and then went to
Gaithersburg to go to fireworks and carnival. Its been a good day!!!
We were given an extra long pday today.

Bumped into recent convert "E" at the Gaithersburg 4th Carnival

Pony races!

Thanks so much for all the support and happy Fourth of July!
