A Baptism, Skirts and Branson!

This week was great!

On Monday --- got surgery ): so we went to visit her on Tuesday. She was doing well, just a little groggy!

Later that day we helped a Less-Active Member with her garage sale, she has a lot of collectible type stuff she's trying to get rid of. She runs a nursing home from her house and whenever one of her patients passes away the family just leaves the clothes with Sister ----, so she has this trailer and the back half is full of clothes! She let us "go shopping", it was a lot of fun. I got a skirt, and a dress and there is another dress that I didn't get that I am going to have to go back for!

On Thursday we had interviews with President Shumway. They went really well. He invited me to start over on the Book of Mormon and finish it by the Zone Conference in December. I was in Helaman, and now I'm in 1st Nephi. I am reading 5 pages a day, but if I finish those 5 pages and have a few minutes to spare somewhere (which are few and far between), I'll read in Helaman.

Friday was a fun day! Brother --- was home, and we were having a lesson with ---, so we asked him to come with us since he's a ward missionary and rarely gets to do things with his calling. We also had ---'s Baptism! YAY!!! It was a great baptism! Since she's 18 the YSA Bishop, Missionaries and Ward Mission Leader came and guess what? The YSA ward is having a temple trip on Saturday (16th) and they invited ---! She got her recommend on Sunday and WE GET TO GO WITH HER!! YAYA!!

On Saturday we had dinner with the ---, they invited a new member and her family, and their neighbor that is a potential investigator, ---. It was really cool. We were able to teach the Plan of Salvation.

Yesterday was (weirdly enough) a normal day because we had a Zone outing today. We went to Branson and saw a show, The Brett Show. It was really good, the Bretts are a family that perform together. They are members, the show was really good! It was really weird to be there though! It was all music we normally wouldn't listen to on our missions!!

They shared a little bit of the gospel at the end, they sang Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art and had pictures of Christ, showing the pictures were all from the LDS Gospel Library. I thought it was really cool that they were able to use their talents to share their testimonies and the gospel in such a big way!! Heavenly Father has given us all talents and we can use those talents to share the gospel!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Sister Fleck! ♥
