Pumpkin Patch!

This week was GREAT!! We have an awesome investigator who set himself for baptism last night. We haven't really taught the WOW to him, but he's already started living it. He loves the Book of Mormon and reads everyday. Hes awesome and super solid!!I think the best part was finding out that he gave up chocolate because he wasn't sure if it was allowed because of the caffeine in it. I think that he's more dedicated than I am! We set it all straight though. haha

Working at the Trail Center with Sister Bowles

 The visitors center is awesome! I took an awesome tour this week! It was with two men from California, but they were originally from Korea. One was a life long member and the other was a convert. He is getting ready to be sealed to his family next month! It was so cool to get to testify about temples and temple blessings. I asked them towards the end of the tour how the Book of Mormon influences their lives and one said something that I will never forget. He got really quiet and then said with so much reverence in his voice, "I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through the Book of Mormon. It has changed me." It was so cool and the spirit was so strong! I will never forget it.

Going out to dinner with a ward member

You asked about my birthday. Ummmm...I dont know...This is kind of cheezy, but I want everyone to write down their testimony and to send it to me :)

Today we went to Vala's Pumpkin Patch in Gretna, Nebraska. It was pretty legit!  It's about 30-40 minutes away, so we got some senior couples to drive us out :)

Since you asked about where I live, I live in a house in Council Bluffs! Council Bluffs is the WEIRDEST place ever. But I love it! The other day we were driving home and I saw a bathtub in someone's front yard. And it was normal. That about sums Council Bluffs up. haha it's way goofy and we meet the craziest people. It's SO fun! I'll take some pictures of places around Council Bluffs and send them next week!

(Note from Randi - I received this surprise "video" and thought blog visitors might enjoy hearing it:)


  1. It is so cool that your investigator is ready for baptism, before you even have the chance to teach him!
    And I love the pictures of you and your companion, and of course the pumpkin patch! Thanks for sharing your experiences with us--the people at home.

    Love you!
