Hello Louisville!

This has been the craziest week ever. The move was good, I am good, and the new place is great! Louisville is the smallest town that I have ever been in. It's amazing! Just far from everything. There are like 15 miles of corn fields that separate it from Plattsmouth. 

 This area is a full proselyting area.  I should be going back to the Trail Center pretty soon, though. Unless my mission call gets changed or something. But President wants all of the TC sisters to be full proselyting for 2 transfers and then to go back. So we'll see what happens. :)

 I don't know if you can see the sheep in this picture...but they're there. And they're awesome! This is part of the front yard of where we are living!



Also, this fake moose will scare the heck out of you if you are wandering around at night looking for the spare key because you locked yourself out of the house when you went to grab something out of your car...

I didn't scream luckily.



It's super pretty! Sometimes you can see the humidity in the air hanging over the corn fields. Mostly on the really hot days. Luckily we haven't had a ton of those. I have noticed that when we walk around on hot days I start to get really bad headaches and nausea and sometimes dizzy. So it's been a tender mercy that it hasn't been very hot at all lately. Gatorade has definitely been helping. Luckily Sister Huss gets really bad migraines too, so we can help each other when someone gets one.

The investigators are good! One came to church yesterday, but came like an hour and a half late and couldn't find us for a bit. Then a lady in the ward found him and showed him where we were. We are working with a ton of less actives and having good success with them, so that's been good! 

 I LOOOVED getting all the family reunion letters! They couldn't have come at a more perfect time! It has been a very stressful week for me. We're just trying to figure out miles and everything. It also feels kind of like starting over in a new area since we're so far out there with no investigators. Sometimes I feel  isolated from everyone and everything.

But it's ok! It'll be good, I'm sure!

A few more pic's:

 This is a crazy bridge in Iowa. It's supposed to represent tornadoes or something...all I'm saying is that if there is a real tornado that hits that bridge, we're all in trouble!

 Best road name ever. I feel like Dr. Seuss every time I say it!

 A sign that was in a bathroom at the mall

I hope everybody has a great week!  Love you!

  3. I am so glad you got the Lake Powell letters with your moving I wondered if there would be a delay. :)

    Love the bridge comment about having another tornado--and all of us being in trouble. Funny--AND SOOO TRUE!! That would hurt.

    Glad to hear the weather has been somewhat merciful, and that you are getting a handle on what creates your migraine conditions--so you can avoid them if possible

    I love seeing the pictures, and thanks for sharing stories. I will always look at a moose and think about you looking for a key. Gavin and Tiffany have gone to scaring each other at our house "for fun".

    Wrote you on Dear Elder today! I hope you get it soon! You're in our thoughts and prayers.


I DO get to read my blog comments during my once-a-week computer time! Even if it's just something short-- It means a lot to me to hear from you!!
