Hello friends! :) I am currently serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. I'll be emailing home every week for the 18 months that I'm in the Cornhusker state; my amazing mom will be the one posting them on this here blog. Interested in church history? Come on down to the Mormon Trail Center at Historic Winter Quarters and I might just be there to give you a tour!

Here comes the sun!‏ February 22, 2016

It's been SO beautiful outside! Last Thursday it even got up to 73! I
hope this keeps up for a while because it makes trying people and
tracting so much more enjoyable when you feel like you don't have to
run for shelter from the cold. :)

Something cool from the trail center...Sister Young and I took Bonnie
L. Oscarson's nephew on tour! He was here on a business trip and
decided to stop by.

Something funny from tracting...We knocked on a door and an old man
wearing just a towel opened and said "WHAT? I'm getting cleaned up
before I go to dinner" We said we'd come back later and had a good
laugh as we walked away!

Zone Conference on Wednesday was great! We had a competition to see
who had the cleanest car so a bunch of us met at a car wash early in
the morning. One of my favorite things we talked about was that the
most happiness comes from keeping God's commandments and He wants
nothing more than for us to be happy! So many people think that rules
are restricting but they are there for our safety and protection. I
know that as we are obedient we will be blessed.

On Friday we went with the Brendel's to a fireside on temples where we
listened to the Okiishi's (the temple president and matron) speak and
they loved it! They are so awesome. Brother Brendel is a recent
convert and his wife Amy is working towards baptism. They both have
such strong testimonies and know that even though it's a long time
down the road they have made the goal to have their family sealed in
the temple!

That's it for this week! :)

P.S. We love our laurels!
