This past week has been really busy, but really good.We got another investigator named Kimmie. She is a 15 year old BFF of a member of the ward and she says, "i really want to be Mormon." Wow, that's exactly what missionaries LOVE to hear! We're going to start teaching her soon.
At Pageant, proselyting missionaries from the Iowa Des Moines Mission who live an hour or less drive away from Nauvoo get to work the pageant grounds and do missionary work from 6 until 8:30 when the pageant starts. We hand out fliers, pamphlets and talk to as many people as possible and hopefully get referrals.
Zeke keeps having to hug me in lieu of Sister Woodbury. haha, cute!
One of the Elder's investigators, Brett, (we passed him over to the Elders recently) who is engaged to be married to a member of the ward, finally came to church yesterday with her family. It just happens that his best friend from growing up, Elder Miller serving in the family history center in Nauvoo, was there giving a talk on the importance of being sealed forever in the temple and why the heck would anyone want "'till death do we part." It was such a perfect setup for sacrament meeting. Couldn't have been better.
Me and Sister Boone have been working with a lot of people and staying really busy with Pageant going on. We spend a lot of time away from Burlington which makes it even more busy when we are there. We are finally getting over the initial new companion awkwardness and starting to become better friends. She is one of the most obedient, driven and hard working sister missionaries I have met.She leaves her mission at the end of October, so Burlington is her last area, then she is going back to BUY-Idaho for school.
Fill you in next week! A lot is going on. By the time I email I can't remember half of what happens out here, but i remember that good stuff happened and that's what is important. Thanks for reading :)
