It sounds like life is pretty good at the home front lately! I love hearing the reports on all of the returning and departing missionaries from you each week. Things here have been pretty rad as well. We get to go to the temple tomorrow so that will be fun. Sister Dickey and I have taken to matching for district meetings and such, it annoys the elders so it is pretty funny. Last week we went on leadership exchanges (where you trade companions for 24 hours) and then we met back for a big meeting the next day. We wore pretty much the exact same outfit but convinced everyone that it was on accident because we spent the night apart. It is the little things that entertain as missionaries...

We are teaching a new investigator named Dotty. She is 79 and has lived all over the world. She is super funny and sweet. Yesterday in our first lesson she told us that the Mormon bible is the true one because people cant change it and make different religions like with the regular Bible. We taught her that she was right but that the Book of Mormon was another testament of Christ and did not replace the Bible. She liked that because she loves the Bible too. I am really excited to keep teaching her and to also learn more about her interesting life. In other news, Brother Green, Viola, and Art all have baptisimal dates! I don't know if I told you about Art, but he has been waiting for 15 months for 1st Presidency approval to be baptized. Sister Dickey and I were filled with joy when we recieved the call from President Cannon letting us know that he is now able to be baptized. His service will be held this Saturday and I know that it will be a wonderful occasion. This work is an amazing blessing in my life. I have finally found happiness and I know that I can never let this feeling go. 

I love you all!

  1. This is from an email that I got this week; I thought that you all would enjoy it :)

    "I went on exchanges to Adrian, Oregon with Ryan's cousin, Sister Baker. It was so much fun! And that was the first time I've ever been to Oregon, I realized! She has only been out in the field for about a month and a half so I was a little nervous to go with her to her area, in case neither of us knew what was going on there haha. It went well though. She knew her way around and knew the people and we worked together to teach some awesome lessons! Exchanges with Sister Baker were so fun, and I felt like we were friends having a sleepover by the end of the night. :)"
