Let Freedom Ring‏

I'm so grateful for AMERICA! It's the Promised Land! I hope you all had a great Independence Day and watched lots of fireworks! Sis. Bindrup and I were kinda lame during the evening because no members could take us to see fireworks, so we stayed home. But we got to watch the Cokeville Miracle and bawl our eyes out and play with glow sticks, so that was fun! We also had a BBQ with the Baltimore Zone missionaries, played lots of sports, ate hot dogs, and I got hit in the face and got a bloody nose! What better way to celebrate the holiday? All is well, though and we had a blast. I hope you did, too! 
This week was SUPER busy. We gave an instruction in the Inner Harbor zone on Tuesday about becoming a consecrated missionary, and then we booked it to the Baltimore Zone and gave an instruction on Following up with all the people we are working with. Lots of instructions. Sister Bindrup likes to volunteer us for teaching opportunities. We then got to go on exchanges with the Jones Falls sisters and I got to go there with Sister Haertell! She's seriously the most loving person ever. She's great :) And we got drenched in the rain. We got to eat some yummy food. Lily, my best friend in this ward, took us out for ice cream twice this week and gave us a ride to the VA hospital to visit someone there! 
Annapolis is officially out of the mission, and Lancaster and Chambersburg stakes are officially in. 
Our investigators are doing great! We are working really closely with Sandra and Thereasa! Sandra has been SUPER great! She's been giving up her Word of Wisdom issues and she's truly progressing towards baptism! AND Thereasa took us to the Visitors Center with her and she said she wanted to join the church and be baptized! We're meeting with her to give her a date today! YAY! Pray for them! And they both came to church! It’s been really cool meeting with them because we can truly see that they're repenting because they're becoming more and more like Christ. They are looking outwards to serve others and they are exemplifying Christ's example. It's truly an amazing thing to see! 
It's truly been an amazing week. I got to read the talk "His Grace is Sufficient" by Brad Wilcox this week and it's such an amazing talk. I'm going to encourage all of you to read it and do a self-evaluation. I know His grace is sufficient, not only to save us, but to change us. That's the good news of the Gospel! Christ lives! Here's a link to the talk: His Grace is Sufficient
I hope you all have an amazing week! I love you lots and don't forget to smile! See those miracles all around you! 
Scripture of the Week: 1 Nephi 2:20
Quote of the week: "Try and keep on trying until that which seems difficult becomes possible and that which seems only possible becomes habit and a real part of you." -President Uchtdorf
Oh, and Sandra gave us some of her cigarettes so she wouldn't have them in her house. Don't worry, we threw them away :)
