Well hello there!!
This week was an interesting one! Haha. So y'all know I was starting to get sick last week. Well, Monday I was dying all day at P-Day, then I just slept all day while Sister Baum did a puzzle and woke up with calluses the next day. 😂😂 One of the elders had some honey and lemon juice that he made me into tea on P-Day that helped my throat A TON!! It was awesome! So that helped a lot, I think! But then I just slept a lot but I also started moving around more and was able to get out! We were both going crazy in our tiny one room loft for those 2 days! 😂 It was good though. I feel like it helps to get that fire back a little, ya know? But it's never fun being sick! Haha.
We have had a few lessons this week! We had a lesson with Blair again. We taught the Plan of Salvation to her and I used my little puzzle thing! Thank you Sista Fitz! 😍 #ShoutOut! 😉 it was good though! She really liked it and it really helped her understand what happened with Adam and Eve. She said she always heard that we were all sinners when we're born and she always felt like that was wrong because a baby doesn't know what's right and wrong! So we talked about that and it was good! ☺️
We also had a lesson with Araceli and Mia. They're a less active mother and daughter. They're super cute!! We talked to them about reading the Book of Mormon and marking everything having to do with the Atonement and Jesus Christ. We just shared some of our favorites and stuff. I love testifying!! Especially of the Book of Mormon and the Savior. The spirit is always there and it just makes me happy!
Then we saw Julisa! That was good. We just talked about the Book of Mormon and how it's the keystone! We stressed the importance of reading it and praying about it to know it's true because everything else weighs on that! So yeah! She didn't come to church though... ☹️ that was sad..
But we also had a lesson with Ruby. I don't know if I have told you about her! She is a less active girl. She was baptized a little while ago as the only one in her family.. She's only like 10 and doesn't really remember why she was baptized. So we taught her the restoration and talked about her praying about and reading the Book of Mormon. We told her that she will be able to remember why she was baptized as she reads the Book of Mormon. So we gave her a chapter to read and told her we will stop by again.
Then there's Becky!! Hah! Oh how we love her! 😂 she's a funny one. Our lesson with her was good! So we are trying to help her to quit smoking. I don't know if you have heard of the 15 step program that isn't the churches but they encourage us to use it. It's the one with grapefruit juice and cinnamon toothpaste... 🤔 I dunno if that rings a bell. But it's supposed to have AMAZING results! They can quit IN A WEEK!! 😃😃 so! That is our plan with Becky! We introduced it her and she is going to try it is when that's going to start! Though I have faith, I know it will be interesting... haha. We fasted for her today. But will you all just keep her in your prayers! She also needs to have faith that quitting her dancing job is necessary.. especially because she is going to start working at the DI... but... she's worried she's not gonna be making enough. BAH!!!! Sometimes I just want to quit for her.. but that's not a test of her faith... so!! All we can do is pray for her! ☺️
That was pretty much our teaching this week! My Spanish is getting better! I can pray a lot better. I think the rest of it is just confidence. Because I can think up some good sentences but I just can't get them to come out. Haha. I guess I just need more faith in the gift of tongues!! It will come! I have another transfer here so that will be good! ☺️
The highlight of our week though was the TEMPLE!!! YYAAAAASSSS!!!😄😄😄 Yahh!! It was so great! We got to hit a Spanish session. Our Ward Mission Leader from the Young Single Adult Ward and Courtney took us. It was so great! There is nothing like the temple... ☺️ I was also able to receive some pretty amazing revelation as well! So! Haha. That's always awesome! We took a selfie outside! It's not super awesome, so I apologize but it was as good as it was get'in. ☺️
Everything else is great. It rained like nobodies business all STINK'IN week!! My black boots are already dying... ☹️😩 when I walk, water squishes into them and they squeak SUPER bad. 😂 it's pretty funny. But I'm bummed that they didn't last longer... 😔 but it's all good! Life is good!
Sister Baum was tickling me in the car because she just discovered it was a thing and it was bad.. haha. I got stuck between the waist part of the seat belt, the dashboard and the seat. Haha 😂 it's just so violent when I get tickled, I guess. 😂 too funny!
Thank you all for all you guys do!! I love you all so much! Have an amazing week!
