Picture Week

Welcome Signs! (NOM= Nebraska Omaha Mission)

Mouse caught in a pencil cup.  Tried to feed it but it died of fright.

With Sister Whittaker wearing some uh "headwear" given to them by an investigator.

With Bro and Sis Watson, former Trail Center Directors.
Nebraska is awesome! Its so weird to think that I've been out here for almost 6 weeks! I can't even believe how fast its going. Crazy. 
Some great things have been happening! I feel like we get to see miracles everyday here, which is great! But some funny things:
*A boy giving his first talk in church. He was speaking on the For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet. He was reading this list of things that we can do better or something. He was like, "And we can be happy, and be helpful, do our homework...and our chores......Wait. Who wrote this?!" hahah greatest thing ever!
*We were eating at a members house and this little 4 year old girl was saying the prayer. She said, "Please help my mommy and daddy to be nice to me. And help me to jump as high as the moon." So cute!
I also love the Trail Center! Giving tours has definitely been a challenge for me. I just didn't feel as prepared to give them because I didn't know the information! But I have learned that its not about the information at all. We need to give tours to people based on their needs. Which is crazy, because most of the time we don't meet people until they walk in the door! But it keeps it interesting for sure. You never know who you're going to get or what they're going to be like, so you have to be prepared for anything. And sometimes elementary school classes come in for tours (or just random big groups of people), which is always crazy! But I haven't given one of those yet, so thats good! But I'll definitely let you know how it goes when I do. 
I have to get going but everyone have a lovely day! Thanks for being so awesome!
