Christmas in July!

wow, i love the flowers! they are so pretty! Man, i am so excited to go 4 wheeling with dad again!:) 
We are doing well. My letter i just sent talks about our investigators..which is kind of sad this week but yeah, have fun with that
Sister Clegg isnt sick anymore but we are still getting back into the groove of things, Its amazing how that threw our whole month off. but thankfully next week is when transfer 2 begins so we will be good from the get-go. 

I have realized alot this week but all is well. God is mindful and we are his servants. He will protect. 

I hope you all know that is our ticket home, that by accessing the atonement everyday in our lives we will be able to ultimately become
our potential. everyone should be able to know that there is a way:) 

I love you all!!!


So I hope all is well at home!!!:) 

Basically this week has just been embarrassing.....haha we actually went to a dinner apt. and we knocked on the door and then a voice inside was like "come in!" so we went
 in. We proceeded to take off our shoes and put our bags down. When I looked up this room full of people were just staring at us, so we were staring back at them. Finally a man said  "So...uh can i help you with something?" 
"oh.,....uhh....well....Isnt this the Fiests?" 
"oh, nope" 
OH okay well haha we will just be going now...thanks....
I swear i could have drowned in all the awkward in the room. but i am sure that they got a good laugh out of it:) 

As far as our work. It has been a good but slow week, we have alot of work to do with our investigator, and hopefully we can find some more people to teach, it has been few are far between lately. All in God's time right?:) 

We actually celebrated Christmas in July because I always sing Christmas Songs and Sister Clegg wont be here in December so that was fun:) Thank you for the package mom to be the present under the tree;) 

Well I apologize for the short report, it will hopefully be amazing next week:) I love you all:)

New President and Thunderstoms

Hello All
So this last week we finally met President Hess. Apparently everyone says he is 'SO GREEN' but I cant tell...probably because i am still a greenie....shame. 

He is great! He is from Malad ID, and he loves Logan so we had a nice little chat about that, He and Sister Hess have amazing testimonies and are so excited to be here with us! We are all so excited to get to know them a little better.

This week we also had our exchanges, I was sent to Williston. I love It over there... 
On the way there i was driving and it started to get pretty dark and we drove into a huge thunderstorm. It was insane! there was so much lightning i forgot it was night sometimes. the rain got so think at one point we had to pull over because i couldnt see the lines on the road. So other than the fact that we didnt get to bed until 12am. It was amazing, i wish we had storms like that in Utah:) i used to also think that dancing in the rain was fun, but you might technically die if you did that eh, its just fun to watch! 

The work in Williston was great! It was awesome to meet some new people and get to know another sister. I was with Sister Sanderson, she is such a hard worker and it was great! We knocked on one door and were talking to a lady, but then her doorbell started talking to us about how they didnt want any girl scout cookies..? haha we were just ignoring it, then sister Sanderson was like " umm is your doorbell talking to us?" and she just said yes, that is my husband, he thinks that he is funny...
But honestly i was dying, i thought it was hilarious... but in my defense it was like 10000 degrees and we had knocked so many doors so i might have been a little tired. 

Other than that we haven't had too much, Sister Clegg has been pretty sick so we didn't get out too much. We had one lesson with a guy named Gilbert. He is a recent convert, and we love to teach him he has made so many changes and has a long way from where he used to be. we taught him the Plan of Salvation and we all had fun talking about the Celetial kingdom with him:) 

Anyways I hope all is well with you at home! 
Please share any stories you have with me, I love to learn from you all:) 
Love, Sister A
