Giant dogs, Sister Exchanges and a Birthday Party!

Hey everybody!

This week flew by! Sister Oscarson and I have done lots of tracting and have met lots of interesting people. Two people we met Saturday was a hardcore Baptist and then a Church of Christ pastor. Woohoo! Though we see things differently, we just had to find commonalities, testify, and love them despite differences. What a blessing it is, admidst them telling us that we are wrong, to still try and look at them through Christ's eyes. We are all brothers and sisters, we are all children of God. We are all deserving of love and respect. That is one thing I am very grateful to have learned (and am continuing to learn) love.

An exciting thing this week was when we were visiting with a member and her giant horse---I mean, doberman---Sirus, made friends with us, and specifically was very fond of Sister Oscarson. :)

We had exchanges with the STL's this week and that went well. It's always refreshing for a day to be on exchanges. I stayed in the Shoals with Sister Pierson, and Sister Oscarson and Sister Beus went to Tupelo.

Another exciting thing this week was that Lucille and JC have officially completed the new member lessons! I am so proud of them for their level of conversion and their commitment to the Gospel. Such a blessing to know them!

It was Sister Stark's birthday this past Monday! Despite it being her birthday, we asked her to go on a "team up with us to meet us and our investigator at Dairy Queen at 6pm". She thought the situation was a little fishy but didn't say anything. She walked into DQ and found us and her close friends, Nancy & Gary, waiting with party hats at a table. :) We got some dinner and ice cream and it was fun! She deserves all the love in the world!

Swingin' like good southerners' do.

We met a doberman for the first time this week! He found a comfy spot on Sister Oscarson's lap.

We celebrated Sister Stark's birthday at DQ. It was a surprise! She thinks we're pretty great. :)
