We are teaching a family :) the daughter went to girls camp this week and loved it! Apparently she even got up and shared her testimony! So awesome.  We also have an awesome investigator on date. His name is Porter A. and his wife are a less active member. they came to a baptism that the elders had on Saturday and came to church on Sunday. he was so excited when he found out that he could baptize his daughter when she turns eight. He also loved church. he said he loved priesthood meeting because of the brotherhood.
That is funny you mention service ha ha we did 10 HOURS of it this week. we are always looking for ways to serve. this week we did everything from making apple sauce and spreading mulch, to helping a family move and visiting a nursing home. it was tons of fun!
WELL...its that time again. transfers! I thought for sure I was getting transferred out and that sister Anderson would be training here but president called us last night and gave me a huge shock. I will be a sister trainer leader here in Shepherds town for this area of the mission with a sister named sister Brunson. and sister Anderson will still be in our stake but will be up in Cumberland. So yeah...I will be going on tons of exchanges and getting to know a ton of sisters in our mission. I am excited and nervous all at once.
I feel bad because I never feel like I can write enough to you all. I never share details which i feel bad about. but I am keeping a good journal. I love Shepherds town and I am so happy I get to stay
I love you!

Hey family and friends :) What a roller coaster week! We had a bomb week last week and killed it with our key indicators. BUT we started to think about it and none of our investigators are really the real growth kind. and that is our focus! we need kingdom builders! So we did it. we cleaned out our area book and ended up dropping almost all of the people we were teaching because they just weren't progressing. it was so scary and I don't think I have ever felt that vulnerable on my mission. I mean teeaching becomes your life on your mission and when you don't have people to teach it becomes a tad bit scary. BUT heavenly father blessed us with 5 new investigators the day after we had dropped so many! First off is Joy. she is a mother of two and her little girl turns eight today :) she is very interested in religon. The other is a family. YES you heard me...a family :) I can hardly hold it in. A family of 6. They are very very interested and so excited to haveus over. They are currently looking for the "true church" welll....we are hoping we can help them with that. There daughter is going to girls camp with our ward this week! what a blessing! the ward just jupmped on the idea and did everything they could to make it happen. Keep praying for us and this area. It is ALL about REAL GROWTH :)
My favorite part about this past week was...well..we got a cactus from a member last night. It is prettycute and adds a little flavor to the apartment haha. And today we are going fishing on the Potomac River!
I really learned this week that when life gets hard you just have to keep going. It was the hardest week of my entire mission BUT I know Heavenly Father will bless us for being obedient and keeping a positive attitude.
Love you all
