Hope y'all are having a great week! This week has been awesome. We didn't have our truck back until Thursday afternoon so we completely relied on the members to help us out. They are amazing here. We got 5 exchanges! It was such a miracle. We were able to see so many people in the branch. One of the sisters took us to see the all the people she visits and teaches. It was really fun. We were with her from. Talk about member dedication!
Monday we went to our Less Active/Returning member Marys house for FHE. It was SO much fun. We played the game Upwards. It is like scrabble but you can also stack letters. We found out that it took Sister Palmer, Mary and I a whole game to figure out "diqu' isn't a weird. Gabspin is also not a word. haha! We had a lot of the fun. Then we showed her the restoration with the cup display. She basically taught us the restoration with ten new insights I had never thought of before.
Sister Palmer started reading the Book of Mormon together at night. It was been great. It definitely unifies us and the spirit is more in our home. I was able to finish the Book of Mormon this week. It is such a blessing to read it everyday. It is so powerful. I know it has helped me become a better missionary and a better daughter of God. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true! It helps us all so much. Find time in your day to read it, study it, or listen to it. I promise you days will be better.
Thursday we had Zone Training Meeting and interviews with President Loveland. It was so great! This is such an amazing zone with dedicated missionaries. We have all started the Purification Challenge. It is about purifying your life and allowing things to come in that are important. It has been hard for some things like having dignified language but it has been so great to see the change in my life. I invite you all to go look it up and find somethings you can do to purify your life.
Sunday was the primary program. It was so adorable! there were about 25 kids up there singing their hearts out. Especially this 7yr old Bella. She was just singing like an opera singer. It was the best!
I am still in love with this branch! I don't ever want to leave here! I am so excited to spend thanksgiving here and if I am luckily enough, Christmas as well. We are already making plans with the members.
I love you all and miss you!
Love, Sister Frederickson

Haha! Totally forgot to talk about the wasp sting and flu shot. I got stung by a wasp at a service project on Saturday. It was not fun. My had hurt for a couple hours after. There are so many wasps in Arkansas. Surprised I haven't got stung before. And then I got a flu shot today. Faced my fear of needles. It wasn't bad at all then sister palmer was laughing at me because I was such a wimp.
