4th of July

Hey everyone, I do not have lots of time today but i will try my best to fill you all in:) Welp, Weirdest at the walmart the bagger asked me if i wanted my milk in a beg. haha it took me forever to realize that she was saying 'Bag'...awkward. I didnt really feel super bright after that haha

So we have had a good week! It started out pretty slow but we were able to make tons of appointments for this coming weeks so hopefully we can get some good teaching in and we can set up some more things. We have one Lady who is on date  who is the sweetest old lady in the whole world. Her name is Rosalind, and she says the best Prayers. I love visiting her. We always have a good visit with her. 

We were approved to stay out to watch the fireworks on the Fourth this year and so we did:) It was good and we saw lots of them from everyone's homes. I loved to see the fireworks. I hope you all had a great 4th of July with your families and hopefully no one blew up;) 

Sister Clegg and I are probably the weirdest people ever. we are the only sisters out in Minot and we tend to feel overpowered by the elders.. so, long story short i am really excited to see some other sisters someday. But, i guess elders are cool too....

I heard about the supreme court decision to legalize same sex marriage and i LOVE the churches statement on it. If you have not read it you need to look it up now. Not only is it important to be aware but unity in our church something we should all strive for. 

I know that because of this decision finding people and teaching them to come to Christ is going to get harder as sin and corruption increases around us, but as we endure on, our basic beliefs and practices are what will sustain not only our families but our individual testimonies until rest from this life arrives. Nevertheless our search for people ready and willing to come unto Christ is ever needed and continuing. Our world might just need God now, more than ever. 

I hope you all know that members of our church are the ones who bring people to Christ. We as missionaries, can teach but the most powerful lessons and testimonies come from members who are willing to share 10 minutes of their life to changes someone else forever. 

Please look for and help the non member and less actives and other members that are around you everyday. EVERYONE can come closer to Christ. 

I love you all! God needs our help in saving his children!
