This week we finally got to eat at the Wellington Grill! Brother Daknis took us. It was so fun! I love the Daknis family so much!
One day this week we were contacting a referral and saw a member down the street and decided to contact her, we helped her hang some photos in her home, it was so fun! A couple hours later we came back because she was hosting a Relief Society activity. It was so funny, when we came back she told us about how almost all the photos we hung up fell. It was defiantly sad, but none of them broke! What a blessing!!
I've been reading the fourth missionary...SO GOOD! One of the lines I loved from it was where it says "I kick when I don't want to kick, and stroke when I don't want to stroke." Missions are hard, they are so worth it! I'm so happy and grateful to be out.
This week we went to Costco for lunch! I love that place! As many of you may know! If not my roommates before the mission knew. (:
While in the parking lot, I made a joke saying "Wouldn't it be funny to run into a member and have them try to pay for our food?" (happens often but not that often) Well while in line, someone comes up and hugs me from the side, it was a member I knew! It was Sister Anderson from my first area! And she bought us lunch!! How sweet, after we walked around to finish up our lunch hour. The picture of me and the bears is from Costco, These bears are over 100$ each. Just in case anyone wants one, or to get me one for after the mission...I'll probably be pretty lonely after the mission.
We had dinner with the Allreds this week, and Kade likes to open our doors, so just when we were about to pray in the car before going in, Kade is knocking on the car window. I opened the door and he climbed in,he sat beside me on the seat, so we took a picture. This kid is so cute!!
In district meeting here are some of the funny things an Elder said...
talking about anti Mormon stuff "cut through the bull crap, just pray about it"
Making members (anyone) uncomfortable "Christ made a lot of people uncomfortable and we represent him." It might had been funnier if you were there. But oh well.
This weekend our ward mission leader left town and before he did his wife let us come over and told us to lock up when we left...well after weekly planning we decided to clean there house. What a surprise for them! It was super exciting for them. It made me so happy. And it distracted me from everything going on. I love doing service. And I know Heavenly Father blesses us when we do service. And I know he understands the desires our our hearts. (:
Saturday we met with Brooke for the second time this week, and followed up on the reading chart we made for her. It was so sweet. She hadn't missed a day!! Shes still on date for baptism, (Nov 21) but it might be happening in Utah.
While there we were stalling to start the lesson, since the member who was joining us was running behind the dad (non member) super funny saw the member pull up, and said, I got to go a BMC, he then told us BMC = Big Mormon Convention. haha only he would come up with those things. He went to the gas station for snacks and came back and sat in on the lesson. Also her and her mom came to church on Sunday!!! How fun! wohoo!
Yesterday was a bad hair day, and all day I just felt like a mess. so we decided we have a new term....GMMS= Ghetto Missionary Mess Syndrome.
On a more serious note, I want everyone to know how grateful I am to be on a mission. I've seen so many blessings. And I'm so grateful for the Atonement. I know Heavenly Father loves us, I know he knows us. I know ultimately hes the only one who can take away our tears, fears you name it. I know he cares so much about each of us. I'd like to invite each of you to offer up a pray of gratitude for the Atonement. If you don't know if he's really there offer a pray and ask "Heavenly Father are you really there?" I know he will answer you. I promise you he will. Tell him whats going on in your life. Give him your burdens. Don't carry them alone. That's not your job. I know our Savior lives. In the name of Jesus Christ.Amen.
