Sisters, do you like this cake?
Monday 10th August 2015
So I don't really know what to call this week, so you can think up of something creative yourself.
Reminder for all my beloved Americans!
Monday 17th - 3487 S 1300 E at 7 pm is my final testimony, I would really LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE so I can say a final goodbye before I fly back to the motherland. ✈
Monday: We spent the whole day cleaning. In the evening we had a family home evening with a new family that moved into the ward, the Larson's, they are so nice and we taught them the restoration. Then we were contacting for the rest of the night.
Tuesday: More contacting really because our appointment fell through. So we stopped by this old lady and she opened the door and she said that she was busy, so we replied "that's okay, we were just wondering if there was anything that we could do for you today" and it was cool to see her facial expression change, she looks touched and chatted to us for a bit and let us inside her house and we then set up a return appointment.
We then went out to lunch with the Sisters. It was so good to see Sister Owens! I miss her hick accent so it was so nice to catch up! We were contacting for the rest of the day.
Wednesday: We spent the morning at the beehive house with the old ladies which was good, then after lunch we had a lesson with Joe...well it wasn't really a lesson because he showed up late and then was updating us on life, but it was still really good to see him.
Then we went over to Mary's and helped her fix her lights and do some yard work. She gave us some fairy lights and we put them in our bedroom and they look really cute! We have bunting too! You'd never have guessed that this used to be a guys place haha! After dinner we were contacting and then we had a lesson with Kristie which was good and she told us that she is really interested woohoo!
Elder Weeks came over to our house with a cake mix in his hand, 'Sisters do you like this cake?' I said 'so what you really mean is, sisters it's my birthday tomorrow and I want you to make me a cake', it was really funny.
Thursday: Weekly planning... Blah blah blah!!
Just a day of contacting and a meeting with our Ward mission leader, we also made Elder weeks his cake and decorated his door.
Friday: Zone meeting my final one, they asked me to bare my testimony. I shed a tear or two, it was so sad! After that we saw Betty who said she was busy, but she chatted to us for an hour, old ladies are funny.
At dinner our member recited 'Albert and the lion' which was really funny. Then after dinner we went contacting all the names we had received. We stopped by a member and we made animal balloons for them and then it poured it down and we managed to get a ride to our appointment with Jenny. We had a good lesson and she is willing to have the lessons. We also did service for some members in the 2nd Ward.
Saturday: We grabbed our bikes from the Tippets who were babysitting our bikes. And we were contacting all morning. No one was interested, but it was good! We then had a surprise birthday lunch for sister Muños which was fun. Then we had a lesson with Yao and Li which went well and then we did service for a Catholic lady, yard work is growing on me!
Then we had dinner with the Newman's, it was the best thing since sliced bread! It was like being at home and it was so good to catch up with Matt & Ella again. Seeing friends is soooo good! The food was lush too then we had a meeting with another Ward mission leader. And we were out contacting for the rest of the night.
Church! No one was at church because of sickness or work which was really sad :( but it was a good day all the same. One of our less actives came, woohoo! Though he ran off after sacrament meeting when he said he wouldn't, rude! We then went to a Filipino home for dinner, I left that home fat! It was so delicious! And we were contacting names we had been given.
Well that was my week.... Just one more to go.... So sad and weird.
Hope you have a good week, love you all!
