Soy un Hijo de Dios

July 6, 2015

Hola familia y amigos!
 
Well Cicero doesn't kid around when it comes to the Fourth of July! We could pretty much look out of any window of our apartment and see fireworks on Saturday night. It was crazy! There were just flashing lights everywhere and it was so loud! The blasting mariachi music made it that much better though. We literally heard explosions all day long starting from when we woke up that day too. Definitely a Fourth of July to remember! Hermana Anderson and I celebrated pretty hard core in the apartment. Nothing like Panda Express and watching the District 2!

We went on exchanges on Thursday with the wonderful midway hermanas! I stayed in the area and spent the day with Hermana SHIPP! Just like the good ol CCM days! We had a pretty busy day on Thursday just one appointment to the next. I learned a lot from Hermana Shipp during our exchange, especially acting with urgency and taking every opportunity to share the gospel and serve others.

Hermana Anderson and I have had a lot of work lately with less active members. It's been awesome! We've been getting in contact with members we've never met before which is way cool. We've also been able to work with our active members a lot more this past week especially with teaching people in their homes. I sure do love this ward and this work!

A particularly funny experience with teaching in a members home happened on Tuesday. So there's a less active Hermano that we work with and instead of bringing the member with us we thought it would be cool to bring him to the member and he was very on board with that as well. So there's an awesome Hermana that agreed to have us teach a lesson in her house but the Hermano we brought requested that we drive over to his house first so he could follow us over because he's not very good with directions. So we go meet the Hermano by his house and he starts following us to this Hermanas home and when we were about 5 minutes away we get a text from her saying that she wasn't home and that she wouldn't be home for a while. So Hermana Anderson and I look at each other like "What do we do? This man is following us!" So I call Hermano Jaime and ask if we could last minute teach a lesson in his home and he said yes! So we finally arrive at Jaime and Carmen's house (pictures of them will be included) and we had an awesome lesson! Good times.

We also have a new investigator! Her names Lucina and she's awesome! We found her looking through some former investigators and she totally remembers having the missionaries before. Our first lesson was awesome and we look forward to teaching her again this week! Please pray for her!

Well those were a few highlights from the week. I hope everyone is doing well and I would love to hear from you! I love being a missionary and I really love this area and my companion. Things are pretty great! I know this gospel is true. I know that Jesus Christ is at the head of the church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and along with the Bible we have the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This Wednesday I'll be going to the temple to see someone from the Chicago 4th ward go through the temple for the first time! I'm so excited and I'll definitely talk about how that goes next week. I love you all and I hope everyone enjoys their week!

Keep smiling,
Hermana Knowles
