Knee pain gone

Good afternoon everyone!

Wow another week gone and another week started!

Mission time is totally wibbly wobbly timely wimey, I feel like I've been out a few weeks, but I also feel like I've been doing this most of my life so that's a thing.

This week was insane! Absolutely, Certifiably insane!
To start off we had another awesome lesson with Marci our recent convert this last Monday! While it took quite a bit to go through, apparently she is really good friends with the members that we were having the lesson in, it went really well! We taught her the importance of temples and why families need to be eternal. She had a few questions about some of the temple ordinances, but felt the spirit confirm that they are totally important so it was a boss lesson :)

The next day we decided to go and contact some referrals that our Ward council gave us, one of them was the Gimmel family. The Gimmels are actually a giant hodgepodge family. The actual only people with the last name Gimmel in that house are the grandparents, and the rest go by a different name but I can't remember it so the family will hence forth be referred to as the Gimmel family. The Gimmels are actually quite a boss family, while about half are less-active they absolutely love missionaries and apparently do a lot of them so we can't wait to build that relationship. One cool thing about the Gimmels is their daughter Jayden (I feel comfortable saying her first name since I can't remember her last). Jayden is my sister Madison reincarnate I swear. They are the same person. It is ridiculous! So in the middle of one of our lessons she went down stairs and got some tape and started putting it on her knee, when I asked what she was doing she said that she had some freak disorder where the outside muscles of her knee were stronger than the other ones so her knee cap tracted wrong and moved out of place when ever she bent it. I thought it was really funny because that's exactly what's wrong with my knee, after talking about it for a little bit, she said that she used to wear a brace but the physical therapist taught her how to tape instead and it was a ton better, so long story short they went and bought me a roll of this glorious magical tape and it is awesome! No knee pain in either knee and no more brace!  The best part is that it helps to encourage the muscle growth instead of decay like braces do or something like that.  All I know is literally no pain whatsoever! I'm sold. The only price is all the hairs around the knee. Literally I swear that tape is like wax. They all get pulled off. Oh well.

Uggg it's the worst when you meet/hear a doppelgänger of a sibling.  There is also a boy that is in band and dresses JUST LIKE ZACH, same age, same hair, face is different but the blue Superman shirt just gets me every time.  

This week we also got to help out in the days of 49 parade! We helped build one of the floats for a service project and even got to participate in the tug of war! It was so much fun!

Another awesome miracle that happened this week was the Lancaster family! We met bro. Lancaster a week ago while offering service around town and while we never really got to help him, he invited us back to his house to share a message and get to know them! They are such an awesome family! The fun thing is that this is an entire family that lives in Greybull that is interested in the gospel. Sadly Greybull has been a little bit slow going in the work but it's totally picking up!

Sorry I really need to go but I want you all to know that Christ's atonement is ridiculously real. It can help us with ANYTHING in our lives, we can grow and truly become who Heavenly Father wants us to be. I love you all!

Never give up, Never Surrender!

  1. How inspiring! It is always uplifting to hear of people doing such great work like those that are serving in the Billings Montana mission. I love when those that are doing honorable and noble work take out the time to spread the word of their work because it inspires others to join important missions like this one. Way to go!
