March 31st Letter - Rainy weather = guitar lessons and banana frosting chocolate cupcakes (;

This week was very cold and rainy!!  But still lovely!!
We found a new investigator!  His name is Caston!  He was a potential and we are very hopeful and excited to work with him!  We will see him again tomorrow.  He is a railroad worker and lives with his mother, who I guess met the missionaries too but she wasn't there so hopefully we will get to meet her too!  He was very friendly and interested!  YAY!  We have been trying to build our teaching pool all week!  So that was great to meet him!
We also met another potential named Barbara.  She is from England and is in her 70s.  Sweetest lady!  One of the first things she asked us was, "Is your primary object is to convert me?!"-in an English accent.. haha so great!  She is Episcopalians and said she doesn't ever see herself changing.  She also said she doesn't go to a church right now and may be interested to stop by ours(:  We sure hope so!!  She didn't come Sunday but maybe she will in the future weeks(: 
Then we got soaked from some crazy rain.. haha that was fun(:  But the Hubbard family saved us!!  (:  And had us over for dinner to celebrate their son Isaiah's birthday!  It was great fun!  Brother Hubbard has been teaching me how to play the guitar with a few strings here and there.  I think I'll buy a guitar when I get home and take lessons.  It is a lot of fun!!(:  I love it!!
The Women's Conference was AMAZING!!  The spirit was very strong.  We had a former investigator Maggie come with us.  She enjoyed it very much.  I was crying during the whole thing.  It touched my heart so much.  Especially the sweet video of all the sacred covenants that we make throughout our lives and the many blessings we receive.
I also felt the spirit so strongly as the sweet 8 year olds stood up and started singing.  It was precious to be in the chapel and see the young ladies stand and sing.  I started to cry then too..  WOW!  I have become a very emotional mess since being on a mission :/ haha
It was a great week!!
How was your study on Patience?  I felt like this week was never going to end (; hehehe  but I learned much and enjoyed every minute!  Don't forget to study Humility this week (:
I love you all es mucho!!

March 24th Letter - Out of time again.. Sorry!!

Hi y'all 

I am feeling a lot better this week!  I went to the doctor last week to a member and he is amazing!  His daughter actually just got home from her mission-she served in Texas.  He ordered an X-ray to check if it were pneumonia. Well the results came back and I don't have pneumonia.  Whatever medicine he gave me really helped!  I still have a few more days with it and then I should be in the clear!!  Yay!  It makes me really sleepy!  But I'd rather be sleepy than sick!

My new companion is Sister Hong, she is from Maui, HI.  She reminds me a little of Alyson Burgi.  She very sweet!  And ready to work!! Sister Hong is half Korean and half Hawaiian and has lived on the island her whole life.  Which for some reason is sooo crazy to me.. I don't know why..  Hahaha.  She's been out 4 1/2 months and has so many great insights!  I'm really excited!  Especially because I am feeling better.  And. Denise came to church yesterday!!  Great things are going to happen this transfer!!  I can just feel it!!(:

How is your Christlike study going?

Thank you for your prayers!!

I love you all!!


Sister Knell 

Sister Hong and I super tired on Tuesday night.. Ha(:

This week was good!  Even though I was sick.
We had lots of meetings!  Which was fun!!

Then on Thursday we had interviews with President Craven.  Those are always great!  I am very grateful for him and Sister Craven!  They are amazing and help to stretch and strive to be the best I can be!  I love them!  (:
Friday we had Zone Meeting!  Which was lovely!  But I was pretty feeling pretty bad that day so our medical advisers told us I needed to go to the doctors.  So I went and he told me i had Bronchitis and Sinusitis..  REALLY?!  Yep..  So now I am on a lot of medications..  But they are helping and working!  Thank goodness!!  (:  OH!  And I am not allowed to go outside..  My poor companion..  She has been so great to me!!  I love her!!!  She is a rockstar!  (;

March 3rd Letter - I've always hated roller coasters..

So sorry to give y'all a scare this last week..

{Cassie insert - my mom received a phone call from Sister Knell informing her that she had terrible stomach area pains and was being treated in the hospital for them. We are still not sure what happened...but she did receive a blessing before being admitted sooo...!!!) ;) }

This week was SO super slow!  As you'd imagine..
I'm starting to feel a little better today!  Thank goodness!(:
I don't really know what to say..
I am very grateful for the Harwell family!  They took me in under their wings and saved me this week!  I just want to be healthy and strong!!
Well I love all y'all! 
Remember to read your scriptures!!  You will see so many blessings from it!
Mom told me to baptize the whole wing (: so I kept my tag on to represent (;
