Mama Mia, May 9 2016

I'm trying to think of what happened this week and honestly not a lot is coming to mind.. Norma told us that Mitt Romney won the election and everyone is saying that the Cubs are going to win it all this year. I am slowly learning not to trust the Chicagoans... 

Three people have mistaken us for Pentecostals this week. We asked one of them why and said because they believe in women wearing modest clothing and we were like oh cool! Then he went on to say "yeah and you know just that women should look very plain and not wear makeup, or do there hair, or wear really nice clothes or things like that. They just want the women to look very plain and very homely looking" so my self esteem is doing GREAT  

Sister Smith and I really feel like the area is starting to pick up. We have some promising potentials and have been trying to come up with new ways to find people and we might start a Bible Study class because everyone in Wheaton loves the Bible and we could probably get a decent amount of people to come, we are just starting to plan some lessons and work out how we can sneak the Book of Mormon into it or something like that.

We had a cool experience this week when we were walking through the parking lot and there was this rougher looking guy sitting in his car just rocking OUT. It was awesome. We went up to him and started talking to him. I was a little nervous at first that he was going to be mad at us for interrupting him, because he was seriously hard core rocking out and getting into his music. But he wasn't mad! He immediately knew who we were and asked if we knew someone and they just happened to be in our ward. Then he says "yeah I used to meet with the missionaries all the time at her house it was awesome" and we were like WHAT so we started talking to him and trying to figure out what he has been taught gave him some pamphlets and a new Book of Mormon and he said he wants us to come over on Wednesday. It was cool. Then we tried to find him in our area book and it turns out he has literally been taught EVERYTHING. He just had disappeared off the face of the earth during the holiday season and no one has been able to contact him since. And we just saw him sitting in a parking lot!! Crazy. Hopefully he still has that testimony and we can help him progress towards baptism! 

Not much more has happened!! We had a great Mother's Day at church that made me just a tad trunky ;) but it's alright I am so grateful for you Mom and all the Mothers and Women in my life who have helped and encouraged me to grow in the gospel and develop a better relationship with my Savior. One of the talks during sacrament was about how the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world and its TRUE. where would we be without our mothers?? 😘
