Sister Gronning will you................

My subject line has literally been like this whole week. My District
Leader asked if I could lead the Book of Mormon read for District
Meeting. The Zone Leaders asked if I could do a 3-5 min talk and
testimony on diligence for Zone Training. The Zone Leaders asked all
three of us if we could lead the Book of Mormon read for Zone
Training. And a ward council member asked if I could do the spiritual
thought in PEC yesterday. What else?πŸ˜‚πŸ€”

Wednesday, we went to the temple! It was a crazy start but we got
there and it was a great session. We had to walk super fast from the
train station to the temple and barely made it for the 11:30 session.
I saw the Johnsons from Salisbury there! Also, there was a girl who
was going through for the first time so her and her fiancΓ© could get
married and it was the cutest thing ever.
We missed our train on the way back so we got home later then expected
and didn't have time to do laundry. We went straight to dinner at the
Biermanns. We are trying to get their 10 year old daughter baptized.
Oh, we also had District Meeting Wednesday night. That was different
haha. It was also President Randall's birthday!

Thursday we started weekly planning then Sister Young wasn't feeling
well and needed to take a sick day. Our STLs came and Sister Adhikari
stayed with Sister Young. Sister Prince, Sister Robinson, and I had a
lesson with Mike. He is getting baptized on the 9th! He came to church
for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed it!
Sister Prince and I went to Jarrettown. We helped someone shovel snow
out of their driveway. That is tiring haha.
Oh so our old Stake President wanted us to come over and teach Samson,
a bible referral, at his house and we had to cancel because Sister
Young got sick and so he called President Randall and President
Randall sent the Assistants down here to teach Samson. Random right?
We were like what!? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Friday we had interviews with President Randall! He is so amazing.
We had a lesson with Thomas. We read 2 Nephi 2.
We had dinner at the Richards.
We had a lesson with Joann. The lesson was kinda crazy and all over
the place. We read 2 Nephi 31 with her.

Saturday we had a Stake women's conference. We had to be there at 8
and it went to 2. We went with two sisters in the ward. A lot of
sister missionaries were there helping. They had 3 sessions and a ton
of classes to go too. The first class we went to talked about the
temple miracles from the temple open house. The second one was how to
prepare our children for missions haha. The 3rd session we went to the
cultural hall and helped with the food and setting up! There was a
huge turn out of women that came! Oh and it was held at the church
building across from the temple. Great food and a lot of fun :)
After that we visited Sister Collier at the nursing home thingy.
We had dinner at the Onoratos. Cool story! Her daughter served in the
Nevada Las Vegas mission and got home in 2015 and she knows Elder
Tollett, Elder Hoopes, Elder Erickson, Sister Coltrin, Sister
Fotheringham, Sister Cook, and I don't remember who else. But isn't
that cool!!

Sunday morning we had correlation and breakfast with the Cassels. I
will attach a super cute baby photo of Neil!
Mike came to church!
We had dinner at the Browns and another cool story! Their daughter is
serving in Las Vegas right now and will be coming home on the 5th!!

Today we have dinner with the Peterson's (old Stake President)

Side note, we have to pay $1.50 in quarters to wash and dry our laundry. Blah.
Oh! Zone Conference is this week!! Woohoo!!

I hope everyone had a great week and continues to have a great week this week!
Love you all!
