Lucky for us, we are going AGAIN to Omaha tomorrow for their departing testimonies!! We're bringing our invstigator, Jordan and like the whole branch is coming with. It's going to be the best day of our lives!!!! And I swear, EVERY missionary in the mission is going to be there.... SO EXCITED!!!!
We also had dinner with the Hastings sisters that night because it was Sister Wilson's birthday! :)
It was sweet how that happened! I had this prompting to ask Nya to sing with me... and she said it sounded like a GREAT idea. I talked to our branch mission leader and he was all "oh, did Nya ask you to sing??" And I said "no, I asked her to sing" and he was like, "well that was VERY inspired because I had mentioned to her that it would be a good idea and i wasn't sure if she would do it" So that was a sweet miracle. We sang her favorite song "i'll go where you want me to go" and everyone said it was incredible!
Then yesterday, I got a text from our District Leader asking if I could give a training on Wednesday, and Nya and I are singing AGAIN for Ian baptism on Thursday, so it's been a VERY busy and exciting week:) PLEASE develop your talents, everyone!! Find a new hobby and build upon it!!
I'm 88% positive that I will be leaving this week and the next time you here from me I will be in another area.... The Kearney YSA has changed my life and taught me how to be TRULY happy!!!

I'm thoroughly enjoying reading the BOM with the mission. (((BTW we should be on page 245))) We are simply PREPARING the hearts of those who aren't yet prepared. Little by little. The thing about YSA is that sooooo many of them aren't wanting to be committed to any one thing that they see "restricts" them.. so we teach A LOT of the first lesson and go through a lot of investigators.
Our investigator, Jordan is progressing SO WELL!!! He fasted yesterday even while he had to work and said that he felt something good is going to happen. We taught him the law of tithing, and it was a little hard for him see the blessings that can come from sacrificing 10% but because of one of our members bearing testimony to him, he is going to try it out!! :) It's been sooooo great to see! He's on tract to living the gospel fully and then he will do his best to get off of probation!! It's going to happen, he is a spiritual giant and we LOVE teaching him!!!
