Christmas in July, FINAL Transfer News & Eat More Chikin!

Hey y'all,

Sister Oscarson and I have been plowing through this week! Lots of tracting, lots of doorstep/porch lessons, lots of less active visits. What a blessing to work by her side!

Last night we went through a package Sister Oscarson got from her family. It was a Christmas-in-July package! Nothing like listening to Christmas Mo-Tab, putting up lights, and having an inside snow-ball fight all in the middle of July... haha

We got transfer news Saturday! Sister Oscarson will be staying in Russellville and getting a new companion, and I will be transferring to Talladega, AL with Sister Cullimore! Though I am sad to leave Russellville, I am very excited for what Talladega has in store. Even more exciting is that Sister Cullimore and I will be whitewashed in (both of us are completely new to the area)! Sister Bradford was called to be an STL in Leeds (so she'll be our STL)...and she served in Talladega for 6 months of her mission and I'm sure will give us some tips!

One thing I have been pondering lately is testimonies. We have times where our testimonies are tried, tested, and challenged. A lot like Lehi's dream in 1 Nephi 8, we go through mists of darkness. That is just a part of life. We also might have people who laugh and scoff at our testimonies, our beliefs. The world will always reject the truth. But as it says in verse 30, we must PRESS FORWARD! Trust in the spirit you have felt. Do everything you can to nourish the seed (Alma 32:41-43). You may fall down at the end because of sheer spiritual exhaustion, but we CAN make it. My challenge is for you to ponder your testimony, and look for ways to press forward!

I hope everyone has a beautiful week, and remember: Eat More Chikin.  :)

Sister Oscarson got a Christmas-in-July package from her family and we decided to take a Christmas mugshot! 

Fun with Christmas in July!  

Ho ho ho!  Merry Christmas, in July?

Eat more chikin!

Tracting in Sheffield

I wear Sister Oscarson out sometimes;) Found her like this when we came in for lunch the other day.
