Happy 4th of July

Well it was a pretty awesome week.
    Monday we had dinner with a member and they are a hoot! then we saw our less active who is still alive but we dont know how much longer.
    Tuesday we dropped our investigator so that is weight off of us. Now we can feel like we are normal Sisters. most of our appointments cancelled so we tried people before going out to a ranch where we saw a bunch of horses and saw them moving cattle that was a fun experience.They live far so we had to drive an hour out of town but its a fun drive thats for sure! We made our less active a planner with qoutes and stuff she liked it so we gave her that.
    Wednesday we meet with our Ward missionary leader and just talked about the area. Then we had lunch with a less active we havent been able to get in thats was fun.we had dinner anf then went to see our investigator who we have been having a hard time getting in with as well. everyone is dropping off the face of the earth i swear!
    Thursday We got 2 new investigators though who seem very interested so thats exciting.we saw a less active who took cocoa the dog we groomed and she is pure white like holy cow we were shocked! we were so glad she went somewhere good though. then we had dinner and had to plan a lesson.
    Friday we had Zone training so we drove to Glendive. It was a good training. Then we had lunch and cake because an elder had a birthday. Then we went to Makoshika state park. Its the badlands and it is so pretty up there wow we got some good pictures.oh and we hiked it in skirts thats a talent especially since im not so good at walking.... Then we drove to Bismarck to get our car reprogrammed and go to the temple! we also got to go to walmart.
   Saturday we fixed our car and did some weekly planning. Then we drove to the temple. We watched our returning member get baptized and then we went and did some stuff in the temple and sat in the celestial room.. I really miss the temple and the peace i feel there. Only in the temple do i really feel the world disappear. I miss it so much. Then we went to lunch with our group and it was some good mexican food.I am now driving Sister Dvaz has passed the keys on haha it was a long drive back.But we got here and had dinner and did a testimony meeting outside around a campfire it was amazing!!!
    Sunday we had church and a lesson on hope and it was so good my favorite video is the hope of gods light you should go watch it. its a good one. then we had weekly planning and we had a lesson with a less active who i gonna teach us how to make our own pen next week how cool is that? then we had dinner with the newly wed couple always so much fun! it was biscuits and gravy i miss that meal a lot.
    Monday was the 4th of july obviously and the best way to spend the day is having a baptism!!!!!! our investigator got baptized yesterday so that happened. i was so excited for her and she just wanted it over with. It was amazing her whole family came who aren't members and it was a blast!!! then we went to her house for a huge BBQ and awesome fireworks didn't take any pictures but basically anything is allowed here so it was fun. Then we went to a member homes and hung out with them until we had to go in at 1030 because our mission president is awesome and lets us stay out. it was the best 4th of July ever!!!!!!!!!
