Specialized Training In Bismarck

Hey Guys!:) 
So this week we had Specialized training in Bismarck with our President and The AP's. It was a great thing!!! We got to have 6 Sister live in our Shoe Box of an apartment the night before so that we could all carpool down to the meeting the next morning. You know when your Mom says that your room is so dirty you can see the carpet? well we really, literally couldn't see the floor...We had air mattresses, and a cot and a sleeping pad and everyone was squished in there like sardines. But it was fun none the less:) 
The Training that the AP's gave us was awesome and focused on why we came. We talked a lot about the promises that we made to The Lord when we agreed to accept our mission call, and Why we are called and asked to give up our personal affairs and give all our time and attention to the work. I loved it! There were also many missionaries giving their final testimonies because this was their last transfer. I am excited to give mine someday and look back at all I was able to accomplish:) 
President Hess Trained on Training....So yeah... We have another 30 missionaries coming out this next transfer so a lot of us who have been out for 3 months will be training. I hope that I get to!!!:) I want to train so bad:) We will know for sure in 2 weeks:) 

So We got a new Investigator. Her name is McKenzie and she is 18. She is really unsure of why she is even meeting with us, But we are excited, I think that she will be an amazing member of the church:) On a more sad note....Rosalind is moved away. She randomly moved this last week to Montana....yeah, that is basically all I know. It was really hard. We had a couple of hard lessons with her and It was so hard to teach her and feel so much of God's love for her and she couldn't understand what we were trying to teach to her. We wish her the best of Luck and trust that God knows what he is doing with yeah, that was interesting. 

There wasnt much else that happened this week. We cleaned up the highway with the ward and had a great week:) 

Love you all:)
