First of all, we have been going on exchanges like crazy! Exchanges are when we get to swap places with another sister missionary for a day or two. That way, Sister Carlson and I get to see how the sisters are doing and train them on anything they can improve. It is a lot of fun but also very exhausting. We had one last week and two back to back this week! It's really great being able to have that time to get to know the sisters better, though. It's been so wonderful!
This week we also had the opportunity to go to a club meeting on campus with the elders! The club is the Dogma-Free Society, and all the members are either atheists or agnostics. But they love us! And we love them! We do a lot with their club and want to start doing joint service projects. It's way fun. We had a discussion at their club meeting this week about morals and raising children. It was so friendly and respectful and a great experience. We all learned new things.
Everything is seriously so amazing at CMU and in Mt. Pleasant. The work is hastening! Sister Carlson and I have been trying to find ways to use Facebook more effectively, and this week we decided to post a question as a status and have members and non-members comment with their answers. The question we asked was "What makes you happy?" which fostered an incredible discussion! Here's a screenshot of the results!
30 other people commented and shared how the gospel, their family, and other things have brought happiness into their lives. It was a great discussion.
I hope you are all having the best week ever! I love you all!
<3 Sister Christiansen
