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!

April showers bring May flowers‏ April 24, 2016

So we had our lesson with Harold last Monday! We had it at the church
and Sister Dinwiddie came with us; then we ran into Sisters Yancey and
Youngberg so they joined in too! We read the Book of Mormon with him
to help him understand how it testifies of Christ. So many people tend
to just read scriptures like a novel but if you look deeper into it,
you come to realize how much it truly talks of Jesus Christ and His
gospel on every page! No doubt in my mind that it is the true word of

On Wednesday we went over to visit Carmon and lo and behold her new
boyfriend Brandon was over! He's super nice and we taught him the
Restoration and he said he would pray to know if God is really there
and aware of him. It was awesome because Carmon hasn't been to church
in a while but she was able to share her testimony with him about the
power of prayer and how the gospel has helped her! The best thing -
that morning Brandon had talked to one of his coworkers who's Mormon
and said he had questions about the church. The coworker said he'd
call him back later that night but never did...and we showed up
instead! That really surprised him but I know it's because Heavenly
Father is indeed aware of him and his needs. We were supposed to have
another lesson with them last night and we showed up at the time they
said but it turns out they weren't there. :/ But we're not giving up

Keep on keepin on. Love you guys! :)
