Well this week has been CRAZY.
My new companion is SORELLA EPPS. Oh my she's the cutest. She is a visa waiter for Italy and she will only be here for a transfer but I am so blessed to have her while she is here. 
We have had quite an experience this week. When we first got to Huntley we had no Area Book, our phone hadnt been turned on yet, no GPS, and absolutely no idea where we were. I had been there a few times on exchanges so I had brief memories of the area but I felt very lost in a very big place. 
But we are figuring things out. We finally have area Book. And that's probably the biggest blessing. I am so grateful for area Book. Missionary work is so hard without it. This week has been a lot of planning and figuring things out and meeting with members to know about the area and things.
Which has been great but sometimes you need to just get out and knock some doors just to keep your sanity. It has been so amazing to see how the lord has blessed us to know where to go and how he takes care of us when we are so lost and confused but willing to do his work.
Some of the biggest blessings this week were when we met this man named Matt! He was one of the nicest guys I ever met and even let me borrow his bug spray. He also lived in Italy for a few years and Sorella Epps was able to talk with him some in Italian. (She's so cool.) We didn't even talk much about the church but I'm pretty sure we all laughed and cried as we were talking. One of the most down to earth people I've ever met. He'll probably get baptized someday.

Another blessing was to see how the lord provides for his missionaries. There was hardly any food in the apartment and we were just running low and the sister training leaders came and saved us. Also sister MADSEN. Is my sister training leader and i just love her. This member also gave us a bag of bagels on Sunday and it wasn't the first time the lord blessed me with a bag of bagels. 

This morning I read the Joseph Smith translation of Mathew 6
25 And, again, I say unto you, Go ye into the world, and care not for the world; for the world will hate you, and will persecute you, and will turn you out of their synagogues.
26 Nevertheless, ye shall go forth from house to house, teaching the people; and I will go before you.
27 And your heavenly Father will provide for you, whatsoever things ye need for food, what ye shall eat; and for raiment, what ye shall wear or put on.

It's true.

It has been quite a week. Oh my goodness.

Tuesday was exchanges and sister peterson & I walked around all day with no car but we found 4 new investigators! But we were exhausted. It was so hot that day. But I love sister peterson and always learn so much from her and we have a good time too.

On Wednesday after district meeting our car got hit! The man who hit our car was super nice though and ended up joining us for district lunch and paid for our whole district's lunch. Believe it or not this is the 3rd time someone has unexpectedly paid for my entire district's lunch. The accident could have been a lot worse and we are all okay so it's all good.

On Thursday we met this man in Momence and he ended up posting about it on Facebook. He was quite interesting. We couldn't really tell if he was contacting us or if we were contacting him but it was definitely interesting!

Friday we ate dinner with the Navas family one last time and we got to hold their bunnies! I love that family.

Saturday we got to go to FREEPORT for Brian's baptism. He was so happy so so so happy. It was such a good day. Wow. THE CHURCH IS TRUE.

We also go transfer calls on Saturday and found out I will be leaving Bourbonnais and will be transferred to the Elgin 3rd ward! They just took the sisters out of Elgin 3rd and soon realized that was a mistake so me and a new missionary will be whitewashing the area! I've been there before on exchanges and am super excited for this new adventure. I will miss Bourbonnais SO MUCH. I have learned so much here. But it's time to move on. I'm running out of doors to knock here.

I am so thankful for my mission. I know that with out it I wouldn't be the same person and I wouldn't be nearly as happy. Life is so good.

Well this week was a bit of a rollar coaster.

We had to drop almost All our investigators. 
Talha and Tina called and told us they didnt want to meet with us for a while.
Jose Luis and his family aren't responding to anything anymore.
Nicole got a new job and says she is too busy.
Quincy is convinced he already knows more than we do and that he should be teaching us and also doesnt think he needs to be baptized.
It was a little frustrating. But hopefully they will come around one day. 

It was still a good week though because on SATURDAY the Freeport Elders called and told me Brian Foster is getting baptized on saturday!!! I dont know if any of you remember back to when we were teaching him and his family but they had been investigating in Texas and then moved to our area. Last i heard he had been dropped but I guess he has had quite a change of heart and will be ready to be baptized. 
Also, the next week Karen Johanssen will be baptized! She is one that I really loved teaching and was a huge blessing. She got in contact with missionaries when she tore her ACL and got a blessing from the missionaries while she was in the hospital. When we went to go contact her I was able to relate and connect so easily with her. It was a big turning point in my mission. 
I dont know if I will be able to find a ride to go back but you never know. The Lord provided one last time.

Life is just really good.

I have read Alma 26 about 5 times this week. 
12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

27 Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success.

Missions are hard but when we are trying our best and exercising faith and repenting and doing our very best the lord will bless us with MIRACLES.

1. We also got to see Kim this week. I love her lots!
