Easter Sunday in Park City...

Hey everyone! 

The snow is finally starting to melt here in Park City. Halleluyerrr, this Arizona girl needs some SUN! 

Easter Sunday was the best! 
So our investigator, Davida, was debating on whether she was going to come to church on Sunday or not because all of her kids are in town and she wanted everyone to be together on Easter. We told her about the Easter program and how the primary children get up and they sing, we told her that if she wanted, we would love to practice with her grand kids so they could know the songs by Sunday. She thought it was a great idea and decided she would come to church with us!  So on Friday and Saturday we went over and practiced with three of her grand kids. We showed them on how they could listen to the songs even when we weren't there. 
The next morning at church Davida, her roommate Terri, Davida's daughter in law, and 3 of her grand kids all came to church! We filled up a whole pew! Before church started we went into another room to practice with the kids some more, they knew the songs by heart! They had been practicing allll night so that they could go up and sing loud and proud.
When we went back to sit with the rest of their family the little kids started singing while we were in the chapel, it turned a few heads. Davida asked us if it was okay that they were singing in the chapel, me and sister Nelson said it was totally fine and they can sing all they want.  It warmed mine and sister Nelsons heart sitting in the pew listening to these three sweet spirits sing about Christ and how he is risen! 
Time came for them to go up and sing during sacrament with all the kids and they did GREAT!  We were some proud sister missionaries that Sunday.

After church we went and visited with some families and shared and Easter message.
We were on shift for the tree that night from 5 to 9, so when it was really slow Sister Nelson and I went upstairs and colored some Easter eggs! haha 

I thought it was going to be really weird not having Easter at home, but getting to sit in a whole pew with Gods beloved children was the best feeling ever. There is no greater work, ive never done something that was so fulfilling or that brought me so much happiness and joy. 

With Sister Nelson and I being companions, everyday is literally a party.  Im convinced that no other companionship has as much fun as we do.
Im so grateful to be serving here in Park City. I feel so blessed to be a missionary, and to have the knowledge that He is Risen! I hope you all had a MAAVELOUSS Easter Sunday! I love you all!
