Week 4: Big Droppings in Buffalo :)

Well, HEY!!!!!
This week was kind of sad and hard but it was also so funny!!!!
K i need to start out with a few funny stories (they may not be funny to you, but I they are to me.) 
K so saturday night we drove into Louisberg, we decided to go and find some less actives, We drove up to this one house and a dog came out and started to bark and growl at us, We tried to walk past him but he wouldn't let us past him. We got scared so we decided to get back into the car for a sec. I opened the car door and the dog jumped into our car and  into the passengers seat. My companion opened the door and let the dog out. Then the dog decided he liked us and  let us walk up to the house.
After that house we went to another house, by this time it was dark.  We pulled into a driveway with 2 houses and none of them had house numbers ( hardly any houses have house numbers and it is so ANNOYING) as we walked to the first house, someone from the 2nd house let his dogs out and said "go get 'em" The HUGE dogs came running towards us. I screamed!! and started running,  The man was like oh I am so sorry I didn't know anyone was out there. So we talked to him and have an appointment to come back this week! 
I am really really starting to hate dogs. EVERYBODY here has like at least 5. They keep them all inside and the bark and get dog hair all over you. They also stink so bad!
On Tuesday since it was snowing we had to walk. (mom note--they don't let the missionaries drive if it snows at,pretty frustrating for missionaries from Ut and Id) We met a nice man he told us some cool stories about his son and how he had a brain tumor, and how god go them through it all.  We talked to him for a while and we are going back this week to teach him more.  I met all of our neighbors this week! I love them all, they are so so nice. One of them is going to throw me a tiny birthday party!  D and D are my favorite, It was cool cos I got to share with them why I am on a mission and I told them about the restoration. Give me a few weeks and they will totally be Mormon, by the time I leave this place.
On Wednesday we had to drive to Springfield which is about 30 minutes away. but I have no idea what direction... south maybe? We were there all day long. I was the last one interviewed, but that was great, president told me that the lord has shown him some of the things he has in store for me. I am not sure to be excited or scared from that statement. 

Thursday was a cool day- We went to Bolivar ( about 20 minutes away)  and stopped to see some less actives. Sister H came with us. ( I LOVE HER!!)  Our timing for every visit we had was just wonderful!  After we ate dinner at the Hurds.
Friday- We pretty much wasted 70 of our miles trying to find a house of a Potential  and we also had a dinner appointment . but it almost worth it cos the way there was so much fun! Missouri is really hilly. Sister Stanworth and I were laughing the whole time, cos you know when you go over hills sometimes it makes your stomach jump? well that happened the whole way there. 

Side story- We have a box in our car called TIWI, I started driving this week and everytime  I speed he says " check your speed" and it makes me jump everytime. Sister stanworth was like  Sister ya got to stop doing that.
Saturday- we tracted all day and no one let us in. It was so sad. We actually got yelled at a few times.
We still have our investigators with dates, but we found out that they can't get married for  6 months after C gets a divorce, so that was kind of sad. 

Sunday- sister Stanworth and I are officially the worst missionaries ever!!! we have kind of accidentally skipped church. Long story short-- we were told church was going to be cancelled because of the icy roads, so we started to study and then one of our Less actives called us and asked why we went at church. No one told us that church was back on. We felt bad so we walked to visit with some people we have been trying to get a hold of.

That is pretty much my week!!!! Saturday can be counted as my first hard day as a missionary!! 
The sun is shinning today!!! which makes me very happy it hasn't come out in days!!!!!
I love being a missionary!!! I am really hoping this week we can find more people to teach, cos I am really sick of knocking on people doors,
I totally understand the importance of member involvement!!! GIVE MISSIONARIES reference, they desperately need them!
but I am doing well!!!
I haven't cried yet (shocker right)
I love you all and thanks so much for your prayers and support!!!!
have a wonderful week!!!!
Hurrah for Israel!!!
Love, Sister Charlesworth
