I Love Springfield!!


I love the mid-west. One day it is 65 degrees and feels like late spring then the next day it is below 30 degrees and snowing. It is so unpredictable!! We woke up to snow on the ground today.
I'm really excited for next weekend because we are having a Meet the Mormons night where we will be watching the movie and having displays around the room that show what we believe! We will also be doing church tours, it is going to be so fun! We came up with the idea a couple of weeks ago. We told our investigator, Dynetta about it in passing and didn't really think anything of it at the time because we hadn't done very much planning yet. A couple of hours later Dynetta called us and had SO many ideas for the activity. We met up with her and planned the whole event in about an hour! Then, on Sunday Dynetta announced the activity to the Relief Society and told everyone that when she found out about the Mormon's she wondered "where have you all been hiding?" She said "People need to know who you are!!" She has a talent of getting people excited for things. It is going to be such a great missionary opportunity. I am so excited!!!! 
We all got together as sisters and had a nerf gun war!  It is not very often that sisters get together on p-day because we are very spread out. We all met at the Champagne, IL stake center and had a nerf war. It was so much fun, I felt like a little kid again.
Yesterday a member pulled us aside and said there was someone she wanted us to meet. She introduced us to Veronica. Veronica is one of her friend's daughters, we sat with her all through out church. It was her first time attending and she loved it! We will be meeting with her on Tuesday. I am so excited to start teaching her! She is such a nice girl. I am grateful for the members in this area. They have such a love for the gospel and they share it with everyone. 

It is going to be a great week! 

I love you!!
