I love it when I (the Missionary Mom) get an email with pictures from Sister Monson. Whoever invented wi-fi cameras needs to be thanked profusely from Missionary Moms! It is a wonderful mid week treat. Her text on the photos says, "Got blender saw.walrus! it looked like a potato". I guess she went to the ZOO. Perfect explanation to go along with the pics. Enjoy, I sure did!

Here in Lincoln the English is a little bit... different. I've learned so many new words, like "finna," "bousta," and "ratchet." To be honest it sometimes hurts me to hear the English language slaughtered, but one learns to cope.
GREAT NEWS THOUGH! We have two people on date for baptism by the end of the month of August! Super super SUPER exciting!
So we "bousta" ( are about to ) have some "tisms" (baptisms) in Lincoln. We are so excited to actually have people to consistently teach, Sister Bird and I are about to go crazy with excitement!
We started out this week totally strong, we were going to go at it hard, and we wound up running ourselves ragged. On Saturday neither of us felt like we could walk another mile. No one we planned to visit was home, and we were getting frustrated. So we pulled over and parked, confused as to what to do. Then the thought came "go see Brittany." I was massively confused about that, we met Brittany the first week we were here and we hadn't seen her since, not without trying. We had decided not to go try any more. But we followed the prompting and we actually found Brittany at home! She was actually in the hospital with a problematic knee, so she didn't know we had been by until the day before. We taught her the first lesson and committed her to being baptized before she moves back to school in a few weeks! She is totally prepared!
Lincoln had it's first baptism since February on Saturday night, and it was awesome. The elders got a referral for a girl named Annika. She referred herself on mormon.org and she was baptized two weeks later. It was so awesome, she is adorable and is going to the U in like 2 weeks!
Have a great week everyone!
All my love,
