Short and Sweet Mama Rika Update

This cute little "Who" is all ready for dress rehearsal to begin!  The show went well and she did a great job.

And here is this from my missionary:  

So this week was probably one of the slowest so far on the mission. I've been sick all week, and not really able to go out much. Well, I'm able to, but by command of the mission nurse and by courtesy to not spread disease, we stayed inside. However, we still had a couple of really cool things happen. Disclaimer: these will not be in chronological order. 

We had an appointment with an investigator which we had scheduled a while ago. She called us up and asked if we also wanted to have dinner before the lesson. Being the hungry missionaries that we are, we obviously we agreed to the terms. Dinner was good and then our investigator introduced us to her boyfriend. We invited him to sit in on the lesson, which he did. For the most part he was taking care of the  year old, and it didn't seem like he was able to pay much attention. We invited him to read a few scriptures, which he did, and the lesson went rather smoothly. Toward the end of the lesson, the Boyfriend was really interested, and he started asking a lot of really awesome questions. "which church is the right church for me?" "do I need baptism too?" "How can the Book of Mormon help me?" "Where will I go after this life?" Etc.

We gave him a Book of Mormon and set up an appointment the next day. We met with him then, and taught him more about Joseph Smith. Hopefully we'll keep meeting with him and help direct him to where he needs to go. 

Sometime during the week, we decided that, first of all, we needed to get out of the apartment, and second we needed to get some earmuffs. (I'd started getting the beginning signs of an ear infection and decided to get as much protection as I could) So we start looking for ear muffs. 8 stores and a couple gas stations later, the only pair of ear muffs we could find were pink and had little piggies on them... Somehow I don't think our mission president would approve those for me. :) We tried Rite Aid, Family Dollar, a couple clothing stores, Dicks Sporting Goods, Dollar General, to name a few. Walmart didn't even have any! It was ridiculous. Finally we tried Gabes and they had the perfect set. Who knew that ear muffs would be so difficult to find in West Virginia.

Anyway, Sorry it's short, love ya tons!
