week 46 and week 44 in MDM~"backpacks, bunk beds, and baptisms"

Hey Y'all, 
Sorry it's been a minute since I have written one of these group emails. Things were pretty crazy here for a bit and then slowed down to nothing. I'm still on campus and I still love it. Its been a lot harder to find people because there are a lot less students here during the spring and summer terms. I am still with Sister Craig and we are keeping ourselves busy by taking parts of the Elders are to work in. But we love being on campus. The best part about it is that everyone is super willing to talk to you and most of them either need our message or don't so we find the elect pretty quickly. Also Pres. Cleveland is letting us wear backpacks when most missionaries don't get to so that's pretty nice. 

The ward I am in is so so great! All of the missionaries love it here. Its the only ward in our mission with 4 sets of missionaries. 2 sets of Elders and 2 sets of Sisters. We share an apt with the other sisters and sometimes that's crazy but its cool to talk with them every night about the miracles we have seen through out the day. There are so many miracles around us every day! Like the other day we walked into a store and this guy named Cory walked up to us! He told us he was less active and knew he needed to come back to church. He is coming to church this week! How amazing is that?
We got a bunk bed so now we have room for our study stuff in our bedroom. Because boy can those sisters talk! Sometimes because our secedule is so different being on campus it would be hard to have our full studies because they would come in and we would all want to talk about our day. But now it is so much better. #BunkBedsBringMiracles We are also the only missionaries in the mission with a bunk bed so that's awesome! 
Caroline was baptized a couple of weeks ago. She is the sweetest 9 year old ever! He mom wanted it to be her decision to be baptized so she was waiting until she knew it was true. Teaching her was such a great joy! That little girl has more enthusiasm for the gospel of Jesus Christ than most people I know! We got to teach really simply to her and it helped remind us what the focus of each lesson and commandment is. 
I finished the Book of Mormon again. I know that book is true with my whole being! I love it. If you ever have a bad day or know someone who does tell them to read that book! I promise if they do it searching for answers, searching for joy, searching for peace it will happen! The Book of Mormon is true! We get the oppertunity to read it and share it! I just love it so much! 
Love you all!
