I'm staying in Sidney Montana for another 6 weeks whohoo!  We had a fabulous week you wont even believe it.
 Monday we had dinner with the Angleseys who are moving at the end of September.... not very happy with this one company who is moving our entire ward right now..... then we had a lesson with our recent convert it got awkward at times but all good we had to rush her lessons but still didn't finish them.
 Tuesday we helped a family clean the apartment since they moved to crane so we did that for a few hours. then we saw mickey who is doing better seems happier. then we saw another less active who is so sweet but doesn't want to leave her apartment i sear. then we had a rushed dinner before seeing a larc( less active recent convert) who is doing pretty well. he has been cutting back on smoking which is super cool and he knows so much he is a hoot.then we had ward coordination and set up appointments to have new investigators.super exciting then someone gave us some good Chinese food.
  Wednesday we saw sister nelson who got out of the hospital and is doing better. then we saw a less active family and he bought us these things called monkey fists but they aren't here yet. he is trying to prepare us to take care of ourselves. they are an awesome family and we are gonna have him teach a self defense class.  then we saw Rebecca who was in the hospital but she is out now and all good then we had dinner with the Taylor and Lefors they invited us randomly and it was good food sister Taylor is awesome cook. then we had a lesson with our recent convert at our ward mission leaders home. it went pretty well if i do say so.
   Thursday we helped clean the Lefors home because they moved Friday. then we weekly planned  and drove to bainville for dinner it was delicious.then we drove home to go to the swap n' share. first rule dont go to the swap n share as a sister missionary.... i may have gotten like 2 dresses and some shirts and skirts.. no clue how my bags will ever shut but hey there's shipping right?? but hey me and sister wells agree i look cute in them haha. then we saw Rebecca to get news about her getting out of the hospital she got out Friday.
  Friday we went back to the swap n share so the community could get stuff.then we drove to Glendive for district meeting.everyone thought i was leaving but i get to stay wohoo.  then we got snow cones and then we went to see another sister. she gave us more clothes i got another dress and a skirt and back backs that are super cute and a scarf thing. people spoil us here holy cow. i could have come out with like 2 outfits. haha.  Then we saw a less active who opened up about why they aren't temple worthy it was so good. we had a lesson on faith and why we do certain things. then we had dinner and it was good.
  Saturday though we got to go to Bismarck it was a long trip since we were waited for transfer calls and we ran into the aps and they were like well accidents happen haha they are cool elders. we did baptisms i found 9 names to take through hopes chest and gave 4 to sister wells so she could be baptized. missionaries have to take names now to do them so ya but i also got 10 other names to do so i got baptized 15 times. However the less active we went with was so happy to do them she was crying the entire time and she cried when she saw the temple. it was so amazing to see that she is awesome and i love her. she might be doing her endowments in s month! then president is so awesome we got to do a session and everyone is so nice there. a brother asked if we would come back more often. The Bismarck temple is the can do temple its awesome!!!!!!!! then we drove home sad times i wish i could stay forever. It was amazing though and in the temple i knew i needed to stay in Sidney and that some exciting stuff is going to happen this transfer.
  Sunday  we had ward council and this ward is amazing! the whole meeting was missionary work. and we set up an appointment with the bishop for an investigator.after church sister wells wasn't feeling good so she slept and i did random things and learned about the gospel. then we saw a less active who may be getting married and he sounds awesome we are gonna meet him in September. then we had dinner with the Harpers and a couple who just got married and now she a=is an investigator. then we tried a potential and set up an appointment for today but we had a lesson with him as well. 2 new investigators miracles happening in Sidney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so excited.
hope All Y'all have a fabulous week love you!!!!
