St. George and Back

Hey, hey!

This past week has been busy. Sister Malphrus is an Sister Training
Leader  so that means once a month we have to make a trip down to St.
George to go to a leadership meeting. So we did that this Tuesday.
That was interesting... I  really didn't like being the only person
there who was not a Zone Leader or an STL, never mind a Greenie. But
we did get special permission to go shopping while we were down
there,so that was nice. It was reaaaly hot. I am *so* thankful I am
not serving there and in all likely hood will not! All the Visitor
Center sisters serve in St. George and us full time proselyting
sisters (which are a rare and dying breed... Currently there are seven
of us) almost always stay out. Oh, by the way, Mom, that means I have a
very high chance of serving in Kanab.

And then on Friday we  had zone meeting, which again took up most of
the day so our numbers were not the best. We lost two days, but we got
a baptism!! Friday night(after a  very stressful day for both us and
Deb) Deb got baptized. :)   It was amazing. She was just smiling and
when we talked to her on Sunday she told us that she hasn't been able
to stop smiling for the past few days. It is amazing the changes that
she has made in her life and what the gospel has done for her. This
message that we have to share changes lives for the better every day!

One thing that I have learned is that Utah treats their missionaries
very well. WE HAVE SO MUCH FOOD! Yesterday, Rylee's dad gave us A TON
of Elk meat. We gave almost all of it to the Chappell's because there
was no way we were going to be able to eat all that. But yeah, people
are so nice to us here. We get free food at Wingers on P-day, but for
the last two weeks people have paid for us.

But yeah. That has been our week in a nutshell. We have been doing a
lot of door contacting. We are trying to get through our Part Member
Family list.  I am getting better at knocking on doors and talking
to...people. ANYhoo...

I love you all!!!
