This is a picture of my ward mission Leader’s daughter the one who said the quote above (she also comes out with us faithfully), me, Brother Lougee (WML), and Jorge.:) We were eating root-beer floats after our lesson last night, so an obvious highlight to my world.
This week has been a very typical missionary week. Although we are sad because Luis is going out of town most of the week, and he is just the sweetest darn thing in the world. We taught him the word of wisdom, and he just drinks coffee and when I asked him if he would live it, he was like “yes! I’m sorry I didn’t know this was a rule before. I’ll start trying now.” Then he told us about how much he loves his grandchildren and how he can be around them without getting annoyed since he started learning about the gospel. He’s just such a funny man. Continue reading
So this may be a short one once again, because email was weirdly interrupted today by a minor emergency. Let’s just say, people can be crazy. We met (once again) a lady who was in some pretty big turmoil in her life. We did what we could to help here, and here we are.
34 hours on the train.
Yeah. That was definitely an event.
I got really peeved when people kept passing by our seats/beds and pulling back the curtains we’d closed. One time this guy lifted the curtain up and was looking in and I said (in my head) “Oh, no, you didn’t!” and pulled the curtain out of his hand.
Family of mine-
So this is going to be short and sweet because I have to write that dumb scholarship thing, even though everybody knows I can’t write right now.
This week was SOOOO good.
I’m not feeling 100% today, so I figure I might take a minute to write in my blog. One of the other students, Stefanie, is a serious inspiration to me because she’s taken on the challenge of writing her blog every day which is no easy task. It’s really interesting if you wanna check it out: http://off-to-byu.blogspot.com/
Quotes of the week.
“It’s P day! P stands for basketball.” Elder Coleman
“Be the Avon Lady on steroids.” President Ware
The Beautiful world-
So, I have never had a sick day on my mission…. until now! Tuesday AKA my last day in Moses Lake, Hermana Larson scratched her cornea because she freaked out about dropping an eyelash in her eye. She also can’t just sit with one eye closed, she has to close both of them. So I was leading her around like a blind person, until it wasn’t bearable and we went home. Then I got her to Umatilla and my new comp Hermana Jackson has the flu.
It’s been crazy and I’ll tell you right now there is not a whole lot you can do to entertain yourself as a missionary. So I have gotten to know my companion really well. The bright side is she is LEGIT. We are havin’ a blast. Continue reading
Everybody I love-
So we had an incredibly tough week. A lot of rejection, and break downs, and chaos. The bright side is amidst it all we had a lot of tender mercies. I know how incredibly the Lord is involved in all that we do, and where we go, and what we say.
I’m not very good at writing things in order, because I don’t really remember things in order–but I have to tell you about our dance class experience.
One of the girls, McKenna, is studying dance for her project. The translators helped her to meet this renowned dance teacher who wants to teach McKenna… so she was going to go try it out, and I guess the first time she saw her she said she was really “intense” so she asked if me and Alexis wanted to come along.
