Hey y’all!

So today is a weird p-day because of our temple trip! So we’re in Birmingham for the day and basically I have no time to email. But know that all is well and we had a great week! Nicole got baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday! It was the best day ever and she is soooooo happy! I’ll tell you all about it and send you all the cute pictures on Monday.

Have a great weekend! Sorry this is so quick!

All my love,
Sister Oscarson

The struggle is real but so is God

Hey y’all!

So basically this has been the greatest week! We have been sooo busy and so many cool things have happened!

This week a member of our ward, Ana, got home from her mission in Arizona! She was our best friend this week and helped soooo much! She went out with us the day after she got home (Wednesday) and then a couple times after that. On Wednesday we went and saw Thomasina again and taught her about the atonement. The spirit was so, so strong! We saw such a change in her, it was pretty amazing. That night we had dinner with our favorite Sister Yow and laughed the entire time. She kills me.

Thursday we had the last district meeting of the transfer so that was sad. No joke this is probably the best district I’ve had my whole mission. That night we visited Megan and Danny, a couple with 2 really cute little boys that we met last week. They are so awesome and very willing to learn!

Friday we went to Gardendale for a meeting for all the new missionaries and their trainers. It was soooo good to be in Birmingham again! It’s definitely home ❤ It was such a good meeting. We talked all about the doctrine of Christ and how to use the atonement in every aspect of missionary work. We spent time on the temple grounds too and the whole day was a good recharge. We saw Nicole with Ana that night and she is still doing great and so excited to be baptized!

Saturday night we had a ward BBQ and it was a huge success! Tons of investigators and less actives came! Literally ward activities are the secret to everything.

Okay Sunday was the greatest day ever! Between us and the elders there were 11 investigators at church!! It was exhausting haha. Prattville is being so blessed right now. I feel so lucky to be here, I love it here soooo much! That night we saw Megan and Danny again and they fed us dinner. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like sitting in a super humble trailer in the middle of nowhere eating chicken and rice. My heart just bursts with love for these people. They are the sweetest.

Oh and we got transfer news and we’re staying yayyy! Shoutout to Sister Anderson for making it through her 1st transfer. If you can do that you can do anything.

God is good!
All my love,
Sister Oscarson

p.s. pday next week will be Thursday because of a temple trip xoxo

​I love my Baby Anderson ❤
