I am going to be training a new missionary...yikes hahahaha:)
So this week was crazy and very
emotional! This week was
overwhelming. Our ward mission leader said that we need to get our
numbers up, there was a lot that I wanted to say, but I decided to not say anything,
so I just cried. We were in the middle of our meeting with him and the Elders
and I just started crying. I was so overwhelmed and frustrated. You could say
the pressure was getting to me. But with a
little faith you can do all things and changes are a coming!
So the transfer is almost over now and I am going to train a fresh new
missionary! I will find out who she is tomorrow.
I am super nervous but nervous!
This week was weird. I have been super sick with a fever and
everything. Almost passed out and things like that. There is something about being sick that makes me super homesick. I
haven't been homesick for awhile like this, but I am.
People are way cool here though. I met this one guy who is a landscaper. He is so cool. He has a garden with the most beautifulest flowers ever! We even have a cool hand shake!
I saw a dog the other day that looked just like WEDNESDAY! I GOT SO TRUNKY.
This is a cookie thing I made for the birthday of this beautiful little girl! I love you and miss you!
Thank you for the package it was just what I needed! First selfie picture I took with my awesome camera. :)
On Monday we went over to a member's
house for a BBQ, we watched "Meet the Mormons" movie, I fell asleep on their
couch (surprise, surprise). :) We saw a guy with a gun and it made us panic a
little, but it was fine.
We had district meeting on Tuesday and
then we had KFC that a member brought us.
Wednesday was a normal mission day:)
On Thursday we had interviews with our
new mission president. We went to the Hospital because one of the recent
converts thought she was going into labor, she didn't. :) But while we were in
the waiting room we met some members of the church that are less active so we
visited with them. :) That night we went on exchanges. I went to Reno with Sister
Braithwaite (he is one of the STLs and she is amazing) and Sister Barker stayed in Carson with a different Sister
Missionary. I had a blast in Reno. :)
I was still in Reno on Friday and a lot of
adventures happened! :) First we met with and had a few great lessons with members
that have been less active for awhile. Then we got into a minor car accident.
We were pulling into a parking lot and this guy was backing out of his spot but
he was not paying attention and hit us. It was only a few scratches but we
still had to go to the Mission office and report it since it is a mission car. :)
We went up to Tahoe for a
picnic on Saturday and it was cool to be by the Lake again (it wasn't the same
area I served like Incline but it was still Tahoe).
Sunday was church, lunch, teaching
people, dinner, bed. :)
So for the past few weeks there is
an old missionary that has been staying with us. She used to serve in Carson and
Tahoe. We have taught a lot of the same people so that has been awesome to ask
her about Tahoe and everything because she recently went to go visit, I think
it was last week and then she went back yesterday as well. She is like my ears
and eyes back in Tahoe. ;) Her name is Sister Xonthe (pronounced Chantay). She was
actually companions at one time with Sister Cordle (I miss Sister Cordle so much).
