Hey all! So! This has been another incredible week! Tuesday I was on exchanges in Cherry Grove with Sister Westbrook, and we had two service projects that both involved weeding! That seems to be an extremely popular service activity for this time of year... we also helped weed two other member's yards and have two more scheduled for next week!

Friday we drove to Montgomery to meet President and Sister Welch for the first time! And they are wonderful! They greeted us all individually, and then they both spoke and we watched a video presentation. Then they had a little 'Q & A' sesh, and some people asked some pretty funny questions. One Elder asked what one of the most embarrassing things was that ever happened to them, and let's just say President Welch may or may not be the reason the white handbook talks about not joking about terrorism... lol... Anyways, they are great! And I love them so much already! We will have interviews on Thursday so I will get to know them even better then!(:

Okay! So! We have been working with some of the coolest people. "J" and "C" are still progressing well! They both came to church on Sunday and loved it. "C" is eleven and sat by me in sacrament meeting, and people were saying 'Amen' a lot because it was testimony meeting and he would sometimes say it too late and then he would be like, "AHHH! Dang it... I was late!" It was the cutest thing! Their family isn't interested at all, but "J" and "C" have been learning so much and have been receiving more answers to their prayers! Sister Evensen and I are having so much fun working with them.

We also met this lady named "N" who has a nine year old daughter, "L", and she is so elect. She and the member that was with us just hit it off super well, and she has already told us that she knew she was meant to meet us — because she has been searching for a church that would help her have peace and raise her daughter well, and she doesn't agree with the teachings she was brought up with. We had another lesson with her on Sunday where we taught the Restoration and she said it makes so much sense! And she is so excited to start reading the Book Of Mormon  isn't that just the best?!?  She even told us that she is friends with a mormon girl on facebook that she went to high school with and she aspires to be like her. Well, "N" is now preparing to be baptized on August 13th!(: She is the sweetest and we are beyond excited to work with her as well!

So, for the fourth of July, we had a finding challenge, and Sister E and I found 5 new investigators! It was so cool! And our zone actually came in first place for the challenge so WOO HOO! And then we went in early at 6, per request of the assistants, so we had time to clean and study and have a nice dinner and whatnot. And we heard the fireworks! YAY for America's Independence!

Well, I hope you all had a fabulous week! Till next time...

Love, Sister Feil
