Week 42

Hey y'all! 
This week was a good one! Also a crazy one! Monday night our ZLs called us and told us that we needed to be in Jackson Mississippi at 9:30 in the morning on Thursday. That's like a 5 1/2 hour drive.. if we miss traffic!  But it was for a new car. So well worth it right? We ended up starting our drive Wednesday night and stayed over with the STLs, Sister Latimer and Sister Marchant, and then continued our journey at 6 in the morning to make it on time.. We were still a little late, but not by too much! And we got a brand new Rav4! It's awesome! And when it rains here we can still make it in people's driveways with it! It's incredible!

We also went to Queen City's graduation this week- a perfect place to talk to people and be seen. It was kind of crazy to  me to see only 70ish chairs instead of 300.  We ended up talking to quite a few people and made quite a few contacts but nobody was super interested. We also went to the cemeteries yesterday to try and talk to people about family history. We were out for a litle over 2 hours, and only met 2 people. Both of whom were not interested but were veterans so it was good to talk to them. 

I am so grateful for all of those who have fought for our country and those who are still fighting. As I was thinking about Memorial Day yesterday, I thought of Captain Moroni and he rent his coat and wrote the Title of Liberty on it. He was not afraid to fight for his family, religion, peace, or God.  He was willing to give the ultimate sacrifice if need be, just like those who have fought for our freedom in recent days. 

I hope y'all have a great week. Stay tuned to see where Sister DeCamp will go next week.  (So if you have a letter send it to the mission office) 

Much love,
Sister DeCamp

Week 41

Hey y'all! This week was a great week! There are some changes being made in the QC ward and it's awesome! The new bishop is really trying to pump up the ward with missionary work! So that is great and he is mixing almost everything up. It'e keeping us on our toes, that's for sure! 

This week we had both Zone Conference and exchanges! I loved it! Zone conference always gets me pumped up! And I love being able to see all of the great people in the zone! At conference we watched a video that I will attach to my email. It was so good! And so powerful! 

On exchanges I got to go with the lovely Sister Latimer! She is so fun and such a great example of charity. She is a stellar missionary and so it was a lot of fun to work with her and see the way she does things. You can learn a lot from exchanges sometimes! 

Y'all! I have a serious testimony in the Book of Mormon! We have an investigator named Dorthy who has been coming to church off and on for ever!! But never read the Book of Mormon. And so when she came it was for a friend or something. And she would never come if it was bad weather. Well since she has started to read the Book of Mormon she has come to church on her own. And yesterday she came and we had a really bad storm! It was awesome! She's the coolest. Also if anyone knows of a good single Mormon man ages 73-75 for her to date. Please let me know. She is looking (; haha 

Have a blessed week! Remember to read from the Book of Mormon! It's the best!!

Week 40

Hey y'all!
It was good to talk to the fam yesterday! I hope everyone is doing great!
This week we tracted a lot and had a really fun time doing so. We met a lot of potentials! So that is good! Lots of people to follow up with! Which will hopefully build our teaching pool! Yay!

Some exciting news! Yesterday we got a new bishop! It will be so so good for the area and the ward! We are hoping to start working with him more! 

This week we also got called by some of the girls in our ward going to Prom saying they needed help because their dress ripped. Luckily Sister DeCamp saved the day! safety pins are pretty great! 

Sorry this email is short! But We have to go up to Texarkana! It was Elder Bledsoe's birthday yesterday! The coolest district leader ever! So we are fixin to go party it up with him! I love y'all!

Week 39

"How long does it take you to pee?" The quote is from DM this week! We are asked to drink 60 oz. of water every morning before 10am and then continue throughout the day. Which is great because it keeps you very hydrated but is not fun when you have to sit in meetings or while tracting. And the quote was said in DM. And it was hilarious. 

This week was a great week though! We did a lot of tracting and it is paying off! We are now teaching a girl named Ashley who is planning on getting baptized in June! So prayers for her! She is the coolest though! And we see her making a lot of changes and progress in just a week! It's pretty amazing what the spirit and the power of the Book of Mormon can do!

We had interviews with President this week and they were really good! While Sister Hope was in her interview Sis. Olson and I went for a walk and talked a lot. It was really cool. I love those people! They can always make you feel the spirit so strongly and can always feel their love for you when they talk to you. It's pretty neat.

It was a beautiful week so we also got snocones! I love snocones! And we have just had a really good and busy week! 

I hope y'all have a blessed week and look for the tender mercies of the Lord. They are everywhere! Smile and be happy !!  

Also Be pumped to talk to me on Sunday. I'm pretty cool!

Week 38

This week was pretty dandy!
We Went tracting a lot trying to find new people to teach as well as trying to visit a lot of less actives and help our ward out! 

This week the weather has been CRAZY!! We have had so many storms and warnings and the best part is that we were out of miles so  we were either on foot or on bike! That always keeps things interesting and exciting.!

Today is Sister Hope's birthday so we don't have much time to write because we are going to play in Texarkana with our District. I love y'all! 
Have a blessed week! Let me know if there are any tender mercies or miracles this week!
