We Got Chased by a Goose!

This week has been crazy and great! Also for some reason, one of the weirdest weeks of my mission. Transfer news! We are staying! Wahoo! We weren't at all expecting to be going anywhere :) I'm so excited for this coming transfer!

The craziest part of this week was when we got chased by a goose! We were out tracting and we were walking down a driveway when we came around a truck and we stopped. There was a goose! For sure the biggest goose I've ever seen and he was not a happy goose. He had his head down and he was slowly walking towards us, then I said, "oh no!" And screamed (probably shouldn't have done that) and as I started to turn around he started to run at us! Oh man we ran so fast! Haha it was so scary! I haven't ran that fast in a really long time.. We know that the owners were home too because we saw them outside just a few minutes before, so I can only imagine they were inside just laughing so hard! Hahaha I hope they recorded it.

Other great parts! Brandy and Nickole came to church! We were running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to find them both a skirt so they would come to church, but we did it! They also said they
have a problem waking up, so at 7am we came and knocked on their door and all their windows! Haha they woke up. And at church they were still pretty loud and crazy for 27 & 25 year olds haha eating chips and stuff, but the ward loves them and is welcoming them in well. They are doing good and progressing well, but Brandy is still deciding if baptism is something she is ready for in her life. Keep her in your prayers!

We had another investigator at church too! She is a girlfriend of a less active member. She is at a place in her life where she feels like something is missing and she doesn't feel that she fits in well with most religions, so she thought she would try this out! She has a lot of potential and we are excited for her! We are loving being a part of the 5th ward now! The members are great and so funny! there is a lot of potential in that area! We met a family that we will be teaching this week, so we are pretty excited about that. Sister Pearson and I are happy to be together still! We are looking forward to this coming transfer. I love serving here in Helena. :)

This week I read an awesome talk from the April general conference 2013 called catch the wave. You might remember that talk? It's all about missionary work and "catching the wave" of it all. There is a part that I love that says,  "This wave of truth and righteousness is wondrous! It is not manmade! It comes from the Lord, who said, “I will hasten my work in its time.” This wave is empowered by a divine announcement made 193
years ago. It consisted of only seven words: “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!” Uttered by Almighty God, That announcement introduced a young Joseph Smith to the Lord Jesus Christ. Those seven words launched the Restoration of His gospel. Why? Because our living God is a loving God! He wants His children to know Him and Jesus Christ, whom He has sent! And He wants His children to gain immortality and eternal life!" I love this! God loves us SO much that he has brought forth the fullness of His gospel here on the earth today! We are so blessed to be on the earth at this time. Read the Book of Mormon. Pray. Go to
church. Learn how you can better have a knowledge of this restored gospel :) I promise you will never regret it. It is what brings me so much happiness everyday and it can do the same for you too!

I love being a missionary and being able to tell people about this glorious message everyday :)
You all are the best! Have the best week ever!

Oh! and other funny part of the week... Sister Pearson and I were late for appointment so we were running to the car and some neighborhood kids started yelling, "Run forest run!" Hahah

Ps. We are going to the temple this Friday! Wahoo! Jennifer and Michelle are doing baptisms :) They were both baptized within the last 2 months. Michelle just got called to be the relief society secretary!
She's awesome.
