Week 9 Letter: Teaching in the Drive Thru

I am going to start off with the most amazing story ever, Friday we decided to have a walking day. We walked EVERYWHERE!! We decided to walk to dinner, Which was on the other side of town and a we had to cross the free way! We were walking past the McDonald's drive thru and this lady in a mini van rolled down her window and asked if we had a hard copy of A Book Of Mormon, and of course since we are missionaries we totally had one. She then told us she is dating a less active and downloaded the Book of Mormon on her phone, but wanted a hard copy to read. We talked to her a little bit, gave her our number and told her to call or text us if she had any questions.
Also, on our walking day our paths crossed with a 21 yr old girl. She was walking to the library looking for a job. She lives at home with her mom and 2 sisters. Her mom doesn't make enough to support the 4 of them. We told her about family services and then walked with her to the library to show her lds.org... but we also showed her MormonChannel and told her if she wanted to feel good, she should watch some of the videos.
We also found a new investigator this week! We went out with a lady in our ward, we were finding people on a list that our bishop gave us. We found a part member Family. The dad is a member but hasn't been to church in a long time. They are a sweet family with 3 kids. We have an appointment with them this week! We had one last week, but Thursday we were in Springfield and we both starting feeling sick. We got back home and ate some dinner, well, that was a bad mistakes within 10 minutes I threw up.... The most violent Throw up I have ever had.  Sister Stanworth threw up a few hours later. The members that we live with went to the store and got us medicine and Ginger Ale. We are pretty sure that we got food poisoning from red robin.
Can I tell you how amazing the members are that we live with. They feed us every night and buy our food for us!
Saturday we had a pancake breakfast with our ward. We invited pretty much everyone and their dog. We had a pretty good number show up.  After everyone ate, we shared a Easter message!
Well, that is all that I can think of this week! 
I hope ya'll are doing well!!!! 
I love and miss all so much!!!
Know that Heavenly Father is real and he loves ya'll so much! The Atonement is wonderful and can heal you from anything. We never have to walk in this life alone.
Have a wonderful week!!!
Love, Sister Charlesworth
