Lets just go for it and I'll tell you what happened this week
Tuesday: we ate at Asia cafe for MCM. Taught the Word of Wisdom to
Megan and Steve. Megan told us she would do it and Steve said he
definitely would not. and the lit a cigarette in the middle of the
lesson to prove his point. Then we diligently tracted in the freezing
cold. We had determined to find time each day to tract because last
week we had no time at all to and we missed it. So we were out and
about and realized we both forgot gloves and only had on like, one
pair of tights but we stayed out because we wanted to be diligent.
nothing happened. but we were diligent. and God rewarded us by letting
us tract into a couple of gang houses which was super cool and crazy
and he blessed us even more because we lived to tell the tale
Wednesday: we got a text about not going outside when it is below
zero.. would have been good to know the day before but oh well. We
were diligent. Last District meeting of the transfer. We went to
district lunch afterwards at this diner and it was super good. A man
paid for our entire districts meals. It was insane and so so kind. He
then told us he was a Pentecostal and tried to bible bash with Sister
Corbett the entire time we were there. good times.
Thursday: Sister Corbett and I finally dropped everyone we have been
thinking about dropping which was 8 people. and then, exchanges!!!!!
Sister Smith my trainer and I were reunited at last. I love her
Friday: More exchange. and then a perilous 2 hour drive back to
Freeport in a huge snow storm.
Saturday: We stopped by all our oldies and wished them a Merry
Christmas. We weren't allowed to be outside for long.
Sunday: we received a text saying all missionaries were FORBIDDEN to
go outside because of the temperature. So we were only allowed to go
to church and any appointments that we had. And sister Corbett and I
had zero. The week before we had planned to do a lot of tracting this
week because we really wanted to find some solid people so most of the
week we had just planned time to tract and then that fell apart with
the text. So we stayed inside all day and made phone calls and cleaned
up areabooks as well as made treats for the members. A lot of treats..
Monday: this day was awesome. but crazy. I woke up feeling very sick
which I'm thinking was from all the treats that we made the day before
that I may have snacked on. But anyways we had our zone Christmas
party up in Rockford. I threw up on the side of the road on the way
over there. Lovely. But it was a super fun and spiritual party
complete with messages from President and Sister Griffin as well as an
insane talent show full of singing and acting and impersonations but
the best had to be an Elder in our zone who took normal songs on the
radio and rewrote the lyrics to help them apply to missionary work.
specifically using subjects such as, reactivating less active members,
getting bit by a pit bull, tracting, and being dear john'ed. amazing.
Then we received our Christmas packages and letters from everybody (i
love you all) then we headed back home to go to family home evening.
Brother Glass shared the spiritual thought and he is a convert who is
a hard core Bible lover. Which is fine. But a lot of missionaries have
been trying to get him to read the Book of Mormon. He knows it's true.
He just wont read it. WELL. He gave his spiritual thought on 2 Nephi 2
and Sister Corbett and I felt like proud parents
Tuesday: pday. Sister Corbett woke up sick as well so we aren't really
sure what happened. But there are a lot of things in Freeport that are
closed Mondays for some reason so we are trying to cram them all in
today while we feel like dying. should be fun.
This was very not spiritual and I am sorry. But know that I am having
fun and I love Freeport.
next week pday is on Tuesday as well so I will talk to you all then
unless I am skyping you Sunday, then I will SEE you then lol
This is real...
And our last district meeting! Also I'm not sure if I ever talked
about this but our district is all sisters besides our district
leader. Also sister Anderson my mtc comp is in my district!!
Like mother like daughter, sister smith and I are still unified
Also s/o saint Sister Turner gave me a sick black beanie
