Hello All! 

This last week was crazy! Sister Clegg was out of Minot for most of the week because she has other responsibilities as a Sister Training Leader now. I was left here to run the show. The beginning of the week was with Sisters Ramirez ( new missionary) and Davis ( old missionary). They were so fun to work with and we had fun. Sister Davis and I are like two peas in a pod and meeting her was a tender mercy without a doubt. It is good to have a friend out here. 

The next couple days Sister Clegg was in Rugby, about an hour away with Sister Ramirez, while Sister Davis and I were running Minot! It was an awesome exchange and I learned so much from Sister Davis and about being confident in our message. We did really well with our lessons and I hope I can continue to learn from what she taught me! 

Later in the week we exchanged with the Sisters in Williston! I was here in Minot with Sister Lewis. She is from Louisiana and is really awesome! One of the sweetest sisters I have ever met! I learned a lot about being sincere when I was serving with her We also stopped by and took pictures by the sunflowers finally! :):) 

We are working Hard and trying our best. No effort is wasted:) 

We got to serve our investigator Rosalind on her Birthday and She was so happy! She got to go back to her apartment for the day and I have never seen her so happy before! It was amazing to see her smiling so much! I have truly grown to love the people here in Minot...Which is awesome but sucks....Loving People hurts. I cant wait to go to new places but I love the people here... Its bittersweet and I don't even have to leave yet. 

So all in all, This week I have grown as a missionary more than the first 6 weeks combined. I cant wait to learn more, and Come Even Closer To Christ:) I Love you all. I don't know everything or really anything about this gospel, but I know that it is real, and that God loves us. That is something I cant ever deny. Nothing else really matters if we can't access Christ Atonement:) 

Love you!!! 

Sister Taylor Andrus
