so im finally here and im loving it! i got here on monday and was greeted by the lovely president and sister cutler. the office misisonaries the jepsons and reeds were all so happy to see me again! it felt really nice! i got a big binder of info to read and im so pumped! i got some training and then i actually got to take a two hour nap! it was marvelous! i didnt realize how much i missed naps haha! then my companion and the sister training leaders came and we had a delicious home cooked meal with the cutlers and their daughter megan. shes awesome! my companion is sister gross from ogden utah. i actually found her on facebook and we chatted a little before she left so its super cool.
milwaukee is such an awesome place! its been super mild here. its really open, green and just beautiful. sometimes the winds pretty intense though! theres alot of american flags everywhere haha. i had soem signature wisconsin custard which is like ice cream from a restaurant called kopps. we are serving in the milwaukee 1 ward. their are also zebra elders in our ward serving in mong and enlgish. cool eh? theres alot of people here with southern accents kind of and i just love it!
our ward is full of med students and doctors! its the coolest thing! ive never really known many doctors! our ward is fairly yound as well with lots of little babies that im tempted to hold!
we went to visit a former named savannah because sister gross felt like we should. we found her home and we just talked to her about our purpose on earth and how she could be so much happier with the gospel like her friends at church. we went to visit her and a few days later she had read and was just so much happier. thats what the gospel of jesus christ does folks. its changes lives and brings us joy.
i also met an investigator named janice who recently finished the book of mormon and now shes tackling the bible. shes found that the book of mormon has helped her to understand the bible. i know that is true! the bible and the book of mormon go together as two testaments that christ is our saviour.
i love this gospel, and my saviour and the book of mormon. and im grateful for all of you and your constant love, support and prayers!
love, sister mansfield :D <3
