Cedar City Week 7

Cedar City Week 7

(Week 14)

Hey everybody, how ya doin?

 
It’s that’s time of the week again – P-day!! (preparation day)
 
First I want to ask if anybody has any questions for their favorite missionary. If you do, shoot me an email (rachelmiltimore@yahoo.com) and maybe next week my email can be a Q&A.
 
This was a short but pretty good week! We found 2 new people to teach and last night we put our friend Joseph on date for baptism!!
 
Joseph is seriously the best ever. He’s a senior in high-school, and has been dating a member for not quite a year. He wants to get baptized so he can have the priesthood (the power and authority of God to act in His name) He wants to be able to give his girlfriend and future kids priesthood blessings. He’s just so humble and ready for the gospel, and has some of the best questions. He’s getting baptized April 9th, so we are super excited!!!
 
More news: Sister Allan and I got vaccinated for Covid!! We got the Johnson and Johnson and yeah it was an experience. We were fine for the first few hours, and then I started getting suuuuuppper achy. Like, could feel my entire skeleton achy. We both got fevers overnight, were a little achy the next day, but now my arm doesn’t even hurt anymore! Glad I don’t have to go in for a second shot though…
 
This week we did a bunch of service. We walked one of our favorite dogs. We helped a friend unpack boxes (she has So. Many. Knick Knacks. Never have that many please). On Saturday we picked up food donations for a food drive, and yesterday we helped the stake primary do a little activity for the kids. Doing service is so great, especially as a missionary. It makes me feel like I’m really the Lord’s hands, doing what he would do. Sometimes it’s a little hard, like when my hands were numb from the cold, but we got through it!
 
There was a lot of laughing with my companions. We’ve really hit a groove… and by that I sort of mean that we’ve all hit maximum comfort in teasing each other. Sister Baker sat on me this week, like flopped right on over and just full on sat right on me for no reason.  I will not be sending the video, but there is one in existence. My companions like my vocabulary especially- apparently I’m an old soul and sometimes talk like a grandma. I’m okay with it since it means I’m “distinguished”.
 
So much happens in a week wow! Friday we went to an SUU (Southern Utah Univ.) women’s soccer game! The weather was perfect, and the game was pretty good. We lost by 1 point, but it was a close game. We don’t know how the players don’t have concussions and bruises everywhere. 
 
Oh also! Some of you may have seen my Facebook post, but I finished the Book of Mormon this week! I wanted to do it by the end of first transfer, and it only took me one extra morning. I’m super proud of myself… and glad that I’m changing my goal to read it every two transfers. The goal was a bit ambitious for this missionary!! Too much to study and not enough time to do it. What goals have you made for the Book of Mormon, or what goals will you make?
 
Love you all! Keep getting geared up for general conference!!
