Clarksburg is on fire, and so are my feet! hahaha

 Wow, I don't think I've walked this much in my life! haha We walk literally everywhere, its such a great workout! Im slimming down ;) We have been able to talk to A LOT of people! There are so many people who need the gospel and they are passing us and we get to help them come closer to Christ! There are so many people in the world that need the Atonement. 
   I think of Christ and His Atonement every time I get tired of walking or if I get upset that our plans don't always go the way I want them to. It helps so much to know the He perfectly understands me and can and will comfort me. I love it here in Clarksburg, the Ward is really helpful and the people are kind! 
   We were walking downtown and were talking to people, and this one lady (Jessie)  we were talking to said that she wasn't to interested but her mom might be. So we stopped by and she came down at the end of the lesson and she said she would like to meet with us. We met 2 days later and talked about the Atonement and she said it filled a hole in her heart. She asked about being baptized before we asked her! She accepted and came to church Sunday! Church couldn't have been more perfect for her. After we asked her how she felt and she said she was in tears! She stayed for Sunday school, 3rd hour AND for the munch and mingle that happened after church!! The members were so helpful to befriend her. It was such a sweet experience!
   We are officially moving into our new place tomorrow, im super excited for that! We have our own little house so I can sing really loud in the shower and not have to worry about bugging the neighbors haha. We decided to tract this one street and we had like 5 people set up and appointments! The work really is hastening here! I LOVE being a missionary so much! It has been such a growing experince and I know Im growing so much closer to my Heavenly Father! Keep being awesome, love yall!!
