Prayer Jars. If you'd like to send her some slips of paper of things you need,
maybe it helps more if missionaries pray for it! I think I'll try it!
The girls figured they would spread the word that Jesus lives as they drive around.
It's mobile advertising. Did I teach this girl right, or what??? HA!

HAPPY APRIL!! :)
What a blessed week it has been! It started out so great last week for Pday Sister Fairchild took us shopping and to this cupcake shop called Ethereal Cupcakes....................um ya best cupcakes I have ever eaten in my entire life. Which is a bold statement. I got the "Resurrection Chocolate" haha I was like hey how fitting for the week of Easters! and ya i about died and came back to life it was delicioso. :))))))))))) stay tuned for pics of that. Sister Fairchild got "The Snow princess" and then Sister Crawford was a little bit sick so she didn't get anything :/ hopefully she will get the chance in the future to try it though! I fully intend to go back to that place. Good start to the week. THEN, we found a new investigator which always makes life great! Sharing the gospel has been especially fun this week because everyone has been in the spirit of Easter so were able to share the Because He Lives video tons people and it was a great opportunity to talk about Jesus Christ with everyone we talked to regardless of religion! I never get tired of that video! I get chills head to toe every time I watch it. On Friday we had the opportunity to fast as a ward family for 3 members who are battling cancer. It was incredible to have such an important reason to fast because I wasn't even hungry! I don't know if it was the thought that I was fasting for someone who had trials larger than my selfish hunger or what but it has never felt so good to fast. That night we broke our fast with some members who had invited us over for dinner with a couple other families and they had a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt which was way cool! General Conference was everything I anticipated and more! I can't believe it has already been 6 whole months since the last Gen Conf.....but AHHHHHH it was so great! This morning during studies I was reviewing my notes and came up with 5 themes and my 6 favorite talks [I couldn't narrow the fav talks down to 5 so i did 6 haha!]
