Week 75 - Ain't no party like a Holy Ghost Party!

The Liberty 1st District.  Elders Leary, Mogan, Bytheway, Christiansen, Reis and Anderson.  Sisters Morgan, me, Hixon, Anderson, Flake and Jorgensen
Awesome miracles from this week as always!:) Follow up on last week with our service with the woman we met at the hospital. We met Janet at the Kansas City Rescue Mission on Wednesday with a member and she had some members from her church there with her. It was so incredible to serve there. It's hard to see what these people are going though as they are homeless and going though a very hard time in their life. But to see the light come into their eyes as we give them a meal and sing hymns and share scriptures. They can be fed both spiritually and physically. I was so grateful for the opportunity and to see how Christ lifts all. Our new friends taught us a new song they told us we had to learn before we left, it goes...

"Ain't no party like a Holy Ghost party cause the Holy Ghost party don't stop"  

Service at the Kansas City Rescue Mission.  If I don't look like a lunch lady, I don't know who does!  Janet, Sister Morgan, Michael, Nancy me and Tami.  Notice Michael's shirt!! haha They're so awesome!

I went on an awesome exchange this week with Sister Anderson!! She is such a great missionary and something she taught me this week was how important it is to be kind to yourself and to listen. Words that we use with ourselves can be very destructive. Would we say to others thing that we say to ourselves? Often times probably not. But we are just as important and special as the people we love! The need to listen is so important as well. When we listen we show people we care. So show someone you care this week and listen to their feelings and their thoughts. 

Friday was Sister Morgan's birthday so happy 21 to her!:) and then Saturday we went to Kloe Russell's baptism. She just turned 8 the day before and was so excited to be baptized!

Tonight we are going to go to what's called a "Lego party" and basically what is it is this man collects Legos and then he cleans and sorts them. After they're sorted he puts them together in to full sets and gives them to kids in foster care. So a Ward member met up with the man in charge and invited around 160 people, members and nonmembers to come have a party and sort with us!! Serving with people builds relationships with members and nonmembers so we're super excited!! Get out there and serve this week:) 

Love you all and hope you have a great week:) all is well and God is good!
