My mom says she's not here!!!

This week has been Wunderbar!!
We had no car again up until Friday but we like walking! Especially when the sun is either beating down or the rain is pouring! Best times to walk!
On Thursday my companion got to go to the temple because she's reached her half way mark so I stayed in our area with two other sisters whose companions also were going to the temple.

It was pretty cool having 2 new companions for the day. I don't hate new people as much as I used to... haha. We had a pretty good day that day!
On Friday we got back to driving which was great... we still walk a lot though because we've realised how much more awesome it is! We get to stop and talk to a lot more people when we walk.

On Friday Sister Grow and I taught District meeting... We talked about how sometimes we have faith in the blessings that Heavenly Father has for us but sometimes it's fear that stops us from doing those things required to gain those blessings.  D&C 67:1-3   read it!

 1 Behold and hearken, O ye elders of my church, who have assembled yourselves together, whose prayers I have heard, and whose hearts I know, and whose desires have come up before me.

 2 Behold and lo, mine eyes are upon you, and the heavens and the earth are in mine hands, and the riches of eternity are mine to give.

 3 Ye endeavored to believe that ye should receive the blessing which was offered unto you; but behold, verily I say unto you there were fears in your hearts, and verily this is the reason that ye did not receive.

We had service at a thrift store again on Wednesday! It was pretty great.  I talked to so many people (just random convo, no proselyting allowed during service) but usually I'd just run and hide instead of talking to people. It was good! :)
We had Stake Conference this weekend! It was pretty cool! The Stake is so big that they assign wards to buildings and then broadcast it from our building! Cray cray!

Tuesday we had Zone Conference! It was pretty great also!
Zone Conference

Thursday we went shepherding and got to stop by and see a few people... so... awkward story about that...
We get to this one house. The husband tells us the wife (who's a member) is not home. So we ask if there's be a better time to come by... he says  I don' know... sometimes she's here and sometimes she's not... well... I guess that's accurate about most people so... ok?!   Then as we are leaving the little girl runs into the back garden and called her mom's name and her mom replies... ahahaha

You just have to laugh at stuff like that... So as we drive away she appears out of the back thinking we're already gone... I just waved.. "Smile and wave boys, smile and wave"  Too funny!!   I wish people would realise how much easier it'd make it for both us and them if they just said "No, don't come back"
Rejection! Hallelujah! Now we don't have to waste your time or the Lord's by coming back every time... JUST SAY NO!.... anyway.  People are funny. I appreciate the no's...
Every no is a yes to not wasting time!

Means we can focus on the people who care about the salvation of their families! For real though!

EVERYONE IS HAVING BABIES!!  I'm scared to drink the water! Haha

Not being allowed to hold babies is probably the hardest rule out here... Rivaled only slightly by the 6:30am mornings. Those too are killing me hahaha!

Anyway... This week has been great! We've talked to a lot of people. We spent 30 minutes last night talking to a man on his porch about the Gospel. He seemed happier after we talked to him. He had sad eyes.

I still love this work!! It's not even work. It's just great!!
Loving the work.

I love you all! I hope that you know that!

Keep going or I'mma hunt you down when I get home!

  1. Christi, I am also learning a lot from you. Thank you for the e-mail. I am so glad you are enjoying your time there. I am sure it is very difficult if you, of all people, are not allowed to hold babies! Will ask your Mom why not. Had to go and look up "proselyting" in the dictionary. First time I have heard this word. God Bless and Love you Lots. Tish
