Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everybody!

This has been a CRAZY week full of many busy and cool things! Transfers occurred and I am so LUCKY because I get to be with Sister Conrad for another transfer!!! Woot woot!

At the park...

We had the wonderful privilege of helping assist with a move...

We are young and we are STRONG!
Service with the elders :)
...And we know how to have a little fun along the way!
Serving others is THE BEST!!!

We also had some cool miracles happen this week...

On Wednesday we visited this semi-sketchy apartment building to visit some formers, and we had no luck it seemed! Some people were even rude and slammed their doors in our faces... you know, the classic missionary tale. We got to the point where we were like, "Okay, one more. One more door and then we are outta here." We knocked on the door of a former, but he didn't live there anymore. However, the lady who resides there now, looked at us and asked what church we were from. And then she asked if we had one of 'those books' on us that Mormons hand out. Anyways, she ended up inviting us in and talking to us for a while, and she became a new investigator!! We will be meeting with her again later this week... she is awesome and we are so excited to share the message of the restoration with her.

Friday, I went on exchanges with my new and lovely STL, Sister Baker! We were trying to contact a referral and a former but had no luck. We had started walking back to our car when we ran into these two ladies. The weather was particularly beautiful that day, so we started to talk about that! And as we approached them, one lady looked to her mom and was like, "Oh, it's the Mormons." And we were a little surprised by that and then she began to apologize and said she didn't mean it in a bad way! BUT GET THIS. She had investigated with missionaries before!! She has never been baptized and wants to learn more about our baptism!! How cool is that!? Her mom was also very kind and invited us back.... holla.

Saturday our mission had a social media split (SMS)  which is where you involve as many members as you can to join you with your missionary work and then they take pictures and post them!!! One of our members, Sister Myrah Sullivan, baked cookies with us and accompanied us to go deliver them!

Making cookies with our favorite Myrah Sullivan... our SMS pal!!!

She is a GEM! She isn't too much older than us so it was like we were in a trio or something! And we were able to visit a lot of people and do a lot of service and it was an incredible day :).

Having fun sharing the gospel on our SMS with Sister Sullivan

And then it was the wonderful Easter Sunday!!!! Sister Sullivan was SO NICE and brought us Easter baskets in the morning (: and then church was incredible.

Sweet Easter basket from Sister Sullivan... Happy Easter Everybody!!!

I honestly feel so blessed to be a member of this church, and to know about the real reason for the season... which is the Resurrection of Christ! He is Risen. Because Christ rose from the dead, and has a glorified, resurrected body, we will too! And our families will! And we have the hope to live with them together for all eternity! Through Christ, we can have new life. John 16:33: "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In this world ye shall have tribulation. But be of good cheer: I have overcome the world."

I am thankful for my Savior and the incredible example He is to me. Because of Him, I can be cheery(: because He has made it possible for me to have eternal life one day. That is a blessing that is available to all of us if we follow His wonderful example. Because of Him, death has no sting. Because of Him, I have peace and I am happy :).

I love you all! Have a blessed week!

Love Sister Feil

PS. I got to hold a dragon this week!!!!!
