Hello lovelies! :D
Monday: We did a custard run as we went about our pday labours. Wait! Have I ever explained what custard is!? It's celestial food forsure! It's like the best ice cream that you've ever had but ten times better and creamier. America's dairlyand, gotta love her! We also went to see sister Coats who's homebound and so funny and sassy. Gotta love her! She even let us use her voicebox!
Tuesday: We had a super fun FHE with a part member family named the Millers. We were able to break brother Miller out of his shell a bit. He gets pretty competitive when we play games it's the best! They have the cutest little daughter. She's a redhead! The members of the Muskego Lakes ward are just so wonderful! We were pretty tired after a long lesson and we were headed home for dinner. Sister Rees invited us over for dinner right as we were headed home. We needed the Spirit in their home and them! So grateful for these members!
Wednesday: We finally had our first district meeting! There's only one new member of the district who I actually came out with. It's been pretty sweet to be withthe same missionaries for awhile! We have a new senior couple in the district, the Johnsons. They have already served in Africa! Sister Johnson made us some delicious cinnamon rolls. We had a lesson with our recent convert Kathryn and her daughter named Kristina who were teaching now. We taught them about the importance of the basics! CPR (church, pray, read) is the way to stay alive! Kathryn is such a missionary! We're teaching her whole household and she's just such an example of faith. She just always presses forward with faith even when she's faced with some hard stuff! We had dinner with the office couple the Jepsons! It was so yummy! I just love them! They have been looking out for me since I was temporarily deported back to Canada haha.
Thursday: Sister Smith was so sweet and printed out half of the conference talks for us! She's the best! We went to the bottom of our area which is huge haha ro visit brother Motta. He always has a bonfire and grills us food which is super sweet! We also finally got to visit some of our recent converts the Sobczaks this week. Those girls are just so funny! I just love em! We were able to get them a lift to church so they came! We had our correlation meeting and brother Greenfield the ward mission leader always keeps us laughing. We went to mutual at the Jacobs house who are from Ontario and it was super fun! We made enchilladas and tried out different hairstyles on each other.
Friday: We dropped by sister Rathke's house just to get to know her better today. We did service at the Bethesda thrift shop and sorted some clothes. It was fun! We had calls with the Elder Atkinson the district leader and he's so funny! Sister Cook one of the ward missionaries spoils so much! I just adore her! She took us out to Carrabas for Italian food!
Saturday: We helped out with the ward rummage sale for a bit. They had so much stuff it was great! We taught Kristina and her fiancee and he has actually started to read The Book of Mormon which makes my heart so happy! We had dinner with the Smith family too they're awesome and she served a mission too! We got to meet the newest member of the Loutenstock family who is just so cute!
Sunday: I got to see Andrea today who is a member that i met when serving in the Milwaukee First ward. She's now attending the West Allis ward which also meets in our building so I will be seeing more of her yay! We had dinner with the awesome Monties! They live right beside all kinds of farms so it's a ton of fun! We went to visit a sister Villeman from the Oak Creek ward and she's so awesome! She just has so much faith and served on temple square. Our ward boundaries got changed which makes me sad. We lost the Monks, the Jacobs, Ellsworth and Smiths. Oak Creek will be so blessed to have them though!
I'm so grateful for the Saviour. He's really just so loving and merciful and patient. I'm also so grateful for The Book of Mormon and how it testifies of Him. I love you all! <3 Sister Mansfield
