Finally in North Dakota!
Well Everyone I am finally in North Dakota! I am Serving in Minot (MYNOT) with my trainer Sister Clegg from Spanish Fork Utah! She is way awesome and I have already learned so much from her and the other elders in our area. we are the only sister in the Minot Zone...and the only companionship that has to pay for laundry:/ Quarters for life:) 

Sister Clegg and Sister Andrus

We got here on Thursday and honestly I feel like I have been here for 6 years of my life talk about the longest days of my life. But looking back it is moving along. we have been teaching a lady named Rosalind, she is already on date for baptism on August 1st but she is so sweet she is actually in a nursing home because she broker her leg and is healing there. But I do love seeing her. She just GETS THE GOSPEL:) We have also had dinner with a could members. we ate with the Roskelleys, who are awesome! Brother Roskelley grew up in Logan, and graduated from Sky View( DAD;)) He has so man cool stories. His great grandfather is the man who was the temple president in a lot of the cool Logan Temple Stories:) we had so much fun with them.
Last night we ate with the Sorensons. they live on the air force base out here so we had to like run background checks and everything to get into their neighborhood.... it was crazy. I love spending dinners at the members homes, I makes me feel like I am at home and like I am a normal person again. Because all of the none members don't really look at us like we are normal.

We had a ton of meetings of course, but I met a lady named Lois Allen. ( mom please forward to Gma, and rosie) Lois know grandma from Yuma... it was so random meeting her but she loves Grandma and Rosie. She told me to remind them that she greets at the west door at church:)

Other small things that bring me joy....I used to laugh and missionaries backing up cars. but the Angels were silent notes taking, because that is my responsibility now.... about 6 times a day, I get to stand awkwardly and back out sister clegg.... Please be careful my dear family and friends, because what goes around comes around;)

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I bought a pillow!! it was so nice... and new we really were supposed to bring bedding...but that is okay. mine is purple and matches my cute blanket:) so yay.... that was fun

Anyways that is my life... I get up and do the work, and then I go to bed:) But it is going well, we have lots of people to contact and try to teach so hopefully I can get better at teaching and we  can bring some people some happiness.:)

I love you all:)

my address is
605 Park St. #12
Minot, ND

I love you!

Love Sister A
