Berlin Wall

Hello family! 
I had a great birthday! I went to the Winston Churchill museum and it was very fascinating. After WW2 Winston Churchill visited the West Minster College and gave a famous speech called the iron curtain. I saw a piece of the Berlin wall too. It was interesting. Made me wish I was in England. 
Gru from despicable me ;) haha jokes

Berlin Wall

We also had our mini missionary this week! She was a lot of fun! Her name is Sister Geiger. She went home yesterday. 

I think I beat you with weather by a long shot. You may have the heat but at least you don't have the heat and the humidity. and tornadoes. And lots of rain. Yesterday a tornado hit ground just outside of Fulton. There was rain and hail and the sirens were going off. It didn't last very long though. Before you knew it, it was sunny again. We were safe. we were at a members home at the time.

​This is what we saw on the way to the members home.
I really like the Fulton Ward because I will also get to practice my sign language a little bit! There is a school for the deaf in Fulton so there are a few people here who are hard of hearing. We have an interpreter at church and I get distracted during church watching the interpreter. I now know how to say that "I am a missionary from the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" in sign language! :) 
With our mini missionary we found someone who was hard of hearing and we got to use our sign language skills a little bit. luckily this guy could read lips too haha. But we were tracting and knocked on his door and he was really big and kinda scary looking and he didn't seem that interested but we continued to share simple truths of what we believe with him. He told us that he doesn't believe in organized religion anymore. but he said that he knows someone in Kansas City who might be interested. So we left him with stuff and our phone number.
We knocked on other doors and then decided to leave but then this same guy called out to us and was like "Hey missionaries!" we talked to him a bit longer and he asked us if we knew someone and that someone just so happened to be someone in our ward! This guy is really cool and we were able to get his phone number and invited him to church. He said he was willing to give it a try. He didn't come to church but he sent us a text message that morning telling that his sinus and allergies were flaring up and that he wouldn't be coming but that he would try for next week. At least he sent us a text right!?! That is way better than not showing up at all! We will stay in touch with him :) 
Anyways I can't believe we are already starting week three of the transfer. It has been a busy transfer and I am having a lot of fun with Sister Nordstrom! 
Good job on the race guys! I want to do it next year with yall.
Hope you have a great week! 
Love Britt
