No neutrals

Hey y’all!

Well I’m not really sure what to say about this week haha! It was one of those rougher ones when not much really happens. BUT you can always look back and see that so much good happened! I’m very grateful for that! but this will probably be short haha sorry not sorry.

Well Monday we had to stay in half the day to wait out Hurricane Irma so we got lots done so that was good!

Tuesday we had interviews with President Sainsbury and I LOVE HIM!!!! It was so great. I feel like he’s my best friend now and I love talking to him about everything in my life haha. That night we also had a cute relief society activity and the Book of Mormon study!

Wednesday we had district meeting and that night had a lesson with Megan and Sister Pugliani came! Megan has really been struggling to understand the priesthood and it finally clicked! It was the coolest thing! She is doing do good!

The rest of the week was full of normal things so there’s not too much to report!

I’ve been studying and thinking a lot about the war in heaven lately. I really love this part of the bible dictionary definition of it:

"The warfare is continued in mortality in the conflict between right and wrong, between the gospel and false principles, etc. The same contestants and the same issues are doing battle, and the same salvation is at stake. Although one-third of the spirits became devils, the remaining two-thirds were not all equally valiant, there being every degree of devotion to Christ and the Father among them. The most diligent were chosen to be rulers in the kingdom. The nature of the conflict, however, is such that there could be no neutrals, then or now."

It’s really cool to think about who we all were before we came to earth. Just the fact that you are here now says so much about you!

All my love,

Greetings from Hurricane Irma

Hey y’all!

So yeah… don’t mean to scare anyone. Everyone is fine, just a crazy crazy storm so far right now and tons of people are here who have been evacuated from Florida. Literally so many. It’s very sad. Please pray for all the people effected. It’s getting very scary down here. But also nobody worry, we’re going to be just fine.

We’ve had a good week! It feels like it’s been super short!

Wednesday we spent the morning at my favorite place the food pantry and were able to get lots done so that felt good! We had dinner with our new ward mission leader, Brother Chambers, and his family, and they are the coolest people and he is doing so well with his calling and we are so grateful!

Thursday I went on an exchange with Sister Millard! It was soooo fun! we sat next to each other on the plane to Alabama, cute huh? So there’s been lots to catch up on! It was a hilarious day because we were trying SO hard all day but everybody was gone and being so rude all. day. long. So we decided we deserved sonic at the end of the night and major miracle we saw 2 less actives and 2 investigators there and got to talk to them for a while! God loves us.

Friday we had a way fun multi-district meeting and visited the Alabama state capitol! Saturday we had a way good visit with Nicole (she’s still doing SO good!) and Sunday we had a lesson with Megan and we were a little nervous because usually her husband Danny is a huge distraction. Before going in we prayed that he wouldn’t be a distraction and the spirit would be able to be there. He was so different this time! He was kind and helpful and it was a totally different environment! We were very grateful.

Have a blessed week y’all!

All my love,
Sister Oscarson

Emergency transfers round 2

Hey y’all!

Well ladies and gentlemen it happened again. For the second time on my mission my trainee got taken away from me after 9 weeks. Hahahaha I guess I just can’t take care of them. Kidding kidding. But President Sainsbury called us Tuesday morning and told us there were some other sisters who were struggling so Sister Anderson is now in Russellville (my birthplace and home <3) and I have Sister Clifford! She’s been out 3 weeks and is the cutest thing! This week has pretty much been a whirlwind but I’ll do my best to tell you what happened!

Needless to say Tuesday was crazy getting Sister Anderson packed and saying goodbye to her favorite people. Wednesday we had district meeting and a cute little goodbye party for her (where Elder Foudy made the most bomb curry I’ve ever had) and we hurried and drove to the mission office in Hoover to meet the other sisters. It was so so sad to say goodbye to Sister Anderson. It was a privilege to serve with her and learn from her. She is seriously the most amazing person. SHE WILL DO GREAT THINGS IN RUSSELLVILLE! Then I brought Sister Clifford back to good old Prattville!

Ever since then we’ve been sooo busy and gotten so much done! Friday night we went to a follow up appointment but they weren’t there so we decided to knock a couple doors around them and had so much success! It was incredible! People kept letting us in and we got so many new investigators. We did not want to stop! We were walking back to our car and this police car came right in front of us blaring his lights. He got out and told us somebody called them on us because we were a public disturbance and then HIS BACKUP CAME. We were like literally what the heck is going on right now? Just imagine 2 little sister missionaries in floral dresses standing there with 2 police cars with lights and sirens blaring. What a mess. But this happens all the time so they were chill. They just ran our IDs and told us "congratulations you don’t have any warrants" and left. But it was so scary y’all.

Saturday we had a lesson with Linda! She is doing great but needs lots of prayers for her husband’s heart to be softened. The night we had dinner with the Campbells and Nicole and she started on her family history and is soooooo excited to go to the temple!!!! I forgot to mention last week that she got a calling and is so excited about it! I am so so grateful for Nicole and everything she’s taught me.

We had a good Labor Day yesterday and were fed very well! Prattville is the greatest area. It is being very blessed!

I am so grateful for this time to be a full-time missionary. There is truly nothing like it.

All my love,
Sister Oscarson

These are our besties. Jasher and Micah left on their missions yesterday so obviously we had to take pictures after they got set apart.

Hey y’all!

Well this was a week full of miracles!

Tuesday was Mary Ann’s birthday and she asked us to come read the Book of Mormon with her in the morning to start it off right! (Here’s a little back story: she’s been a member of the church for 3 years and everyone has been trying so hard to help her get worthy to be able to go to the temple but nothing has really seemed to motivate her to do it. The bishop has been trying so hard for so long.) She told us how she was doing sooo much family history all weekend and feels so much urgency to get worthy to go to the temple so that she can go get all these people’s work done! It’s crazy because nothing has motivated her in the past and the spirit of Elijah is so real and it’s hit her hard and now she’s doing everything she can to be able to get there!

We’ve worked with Linda a lot this week and she continues to amaze me! Tuesday we had a lesson with her. At church on Sunday she overheard someone talking about eternal marriage and asked us about it. We told her about it and she showed sooo much interest in it because her first husband passed away 7 years ago and she loved him so much and her current husband is really terrible to her, so she wants more than anything to be with her first husband again. We went on with teaching the lesson and she didn’t say much until she just stopped and said, "Sisters, I’ve decided I want to go through with becoming a Mormon. How do we go forward?" Man it was sooooo cool! We taught her a few other times this week and she is so solid and doing so well!

Friday we had a really cool multi-zone conference with Elder Craig C. Christensen of the Presidency of the Seventy. He mostly talked about the Spirit and he put it in such a cool perspective that I’ve never heard of or thought about before. One of the things I loved that he talked about is the the Spirit loves us! He is a member of the Godhead and he loves us soooo much just like the other members of the Godhead. How cool is that?! We are SO loved.

Have a blessed week!
All my love,
Sister Oscarson
