Happy 4th of July!

 This week was great! Monday night we had a family home evening lesson with the Moods! They are a recent convert couple and we had dinner and watched the Testaments with them! I haven't seen it since seminary but it was really good! She made us yummy homemade peach cobbler! :)

Tuesday we headed to Macclenny for district meeting! One of our sister is heading home this week but she gave an amazing training! It was so great to be with all of them. We tried to take a nice picture of our
district but.... Yeah... That didn't happen! Haha then we did some service for sister Newman, they are getting ready to move so we helped pack up their home!

Wednesday was MLC! We headed up to Jacksonville, turns out we are getting a different car since we drive so much! MLC was amazing! We learned more about obedience and the atonement. We have the chance to
change every single day. Everyday is a new day to be better and work harder! There really are so many blessings that come from living the gospel! Until we can see the commandments as safeguards, rather than
restrictions, we can more joyfully love them!
Sister Dixon made us waffles!
Thursday we got messy and helped Bobbie paint her shed! It was really hot and humid and we were dripping sweat more than we were paint! Haha then, a huge rain storm came! We quickly ran inside where Bobbies friends threw her a surprise birthday party! It was so fun! Later that night we met with the Sharrah family. They have lots of little kids and we challenged them to be missionary's and to share the gospel!
They got really excited to be missionaries!

Friday we had a lesson with our investigator Leslie! She has come to church twice now and can't wait to be baptized! We talked about the plan of salvation and being with our families forever! She loves the gospel and is coming to church this Sunday! Later we met with our recent convert Olivia! She's been out of town for a little bit but she is doing so great!

Saturday! 4th of July! They had an all day event at the lake full of games and booths! We walked around talking with everyone about family history and family. Some people could care less, but we had some
huge miracles! Some people we talked to were trying to get started with their family history, so when we talked to them about it they got really interested and they want to come to the center! We also got in
contact with the events announcer, he's going to update the Lake Butler news about events the church is having! Yes!

Sunday was great! Leslie came to church and loved it! We saw her again after church and had another lesson with her! We also got in contact with an old investigator as well! He used to have a baptism date, and
when we saw him he was still very interested in learning and coming to church! Yes! We are having another weekend of white July 26th! Every companionship is shooting for a baptism that weekend!!

This week has been so busy and flown by, one downside is I got a huge bug bite! I don't know what it was, but my foot swelled up like a balloon! It was pretty bad, but it's healing now!
