A Quick Note

Goodness gracious this week was good! I have zero time today though, so this may be short! But just know that there are so many blessings all around us!
We had more people reject us, we had one lady drive up to us and tell us to get out of the area.. So that was fun!

So huge blessing! Ernie is getting baptized THIS Saturday!!!! I'm so excited!! It's such a blessing to be able to see how far he's come and how much he's grown! I love being a missionary!

I think we tried visiting pretty much everyone in our area this week and nobody was home.. So that was fun! We walked a lot this week, so I got some pretty awesome blisters and shinsplints! It was great! I felt like a missionary!

So pretty cool experience happened this week, so we were walking right? Well we were in the park one day, and we said hello to this one lady, and guess what! She's been looking for more peace and direction in her life, we ended up giving her the first lesson on the spot, and she was so excited! She wants the missionaries to teach her and her sister! But unfortunately she lives outside our area, so we can't teach her.. But it was so great seeing Heavenly Father place someone in our path to talk to! Such a blessing!

So funny moment of the week! We went to visit a less active member, so we knocked on her door, and this old man opens the door, and immediately tells us to come in! Without us introducing ourselves, so of course it was kinda creepy, so we said no, and introduced ourselves, as soon as he found out who we were, he was super sketch and wouldn't tell us his name, and kept giving us a weird look.
It was just super funny because as soon as he found out who we were, he wanted us to leave!
I guess you had to be there... We walked away laughing pretty hard.

Anyways, I love y'all!! Thank you for all of your prayers and letters! I love y'all so much!! Have a great week!!

Hello Family!

Hello there family! This week was great! I pretty much told you everything yesterday when I got to Skype y'all!!! What a blessing that was! It was great being able to talk to y'all!

Like I said, this week was great! We didn't get to meet with a lot of people because they weren't home, but it was still a great week!

Ernie is still progressing, and is still scheduled to be baptized on the 31st! Woohoo! He's such a great guy!

We're really looking to find people to teach right now, we spend a lot of time looking for people when we could be using that time to teach! But I'm praying that this week we will find someone! I feel it in my heart that this week will be great! I can't wait to tell y'all about it!

I really don't have a lot else to say! I said everything yesterday D: But please keep praying that we can find someone to teach! I know that they're out there, we just need to find them! I'm so thankful to be a missionary, to be able to see so many people come closer to Christ, and to see so many people being blessed!! There are so many blessings that come from being a member of this Church, I don't have any idea why people wouldn't want to be apart of if! I just love it!

Thank you for so many prayers! I feel them daily, I know that God listens to them and answers them!!

So the funny moment of the week! I don't remember if I told it to y'all yesterday or not, but here it is!
So we were teaching a family right? Well for whatever reason Little Manny (he's about 8) comes over to me and touches my hair because we told him it was soft.. Anyways, he touches in and yells out "IT'S LIKE CAT FURR!!!" hahaha! Apparently my hair is as soft as a cat!
It was pretty hilarious.

Anyways, I love y'all so much!! Thank you for all of the love and support each of you give me! I'm praying for everyone back home!!

Keep up the good work y'all! If you have any questions, please ask!
Love y'all!!!

Better Week Than Last

Hello there! How are y'all?? This week was much better than last! Not that last week was bad.. But it went a lot smoother. 

But fo real. This week was great!! Last Monday night we took the G. family on a tour of the church building and introduced them to some members of the church and guess what!! It went perfectly!!! They invited everyone over for dinner the next day! What a miracle!! And guess what else! THEY CAME TO CHURCH!!! First time in 6 years!! I was so excited! Plus they loved it, so that was a good sign!! They said that they want to come next week as well! So many blessings! Missionaries have been working with this family for so long, and now seeing them come to church, was pretty amazing! It just reminded me that even though I don't always see the fruit of my labors, it doesn't mean I'm not planting seeds! 

Also on Monday, I killed my first road kill. It was a bird.. And I cried.. It was pretty traumatizing! Now I keep seeing dead birds.. I think it's haunting me or something! D:  

Anyways.. Haha, I just had to tell y'all! ;) This week was super windy too!! There were a lot of roads closed, and a ton of trees that were down.. Plus fires! So that was pretty eventful! We ended up being able to talk to a lot more people because of that, so it was a pretty sweet blessing!! 

We taught Ernie some more this week! He's doing so great!! He's keeping his commitments, and is on date to be baptized on the 31st of this month!! He came to church this week too!!! It was the first time he's come! So that was extremely exciting!!

We also taught Donna, we found and saved her dog a week ago.. Her lesson went alright, we'll have to pass her off to some other missionaries though, so that's a bit of a bummer! We keep finding all of these GREAT investigators! But we can't teach them for various reasons.. So I'm praying that we can find more people for US to teach!! 

Sister Cobabe and I are getting along pretty great! She's a great person! Last night we just sat in the car when we came home and just sang church songs for like 10 minutes. Hahaha, it was great!! 

I sure do love being a missionary!! I love how even when days are rough, and don't go as planned, there's a miracle in everyday!! I'm so thankful so be able to see Gods hand in SO MANY THINGS! He's truly aware of everything that we are going through! He knows us personally, and had placed us in families, and areas for a specific reason. We have so many blessings that we don't even think about!! It's pretty humbling to be a missionary, and I just love it!

So now onto the funny moment of the week!! Best part of the email right? ;) 
So, most of my funny moments are have to be there moments.. But Aurora just told me a hilarious joke that I'll share! 
What do you call a fake noodle??
AN IMPASTA!! HA! I thought it was pretty hilarious!!
