I Miss Pants! 2/23/2015


This week the weather was unreal!!!!!!!!!!!!! It felt sooo good! I would stick my head out of the window of our car like a dog and pretend I was driving my convertible! haha so don't judge! But really tho this week was kinda rough.... we knocked A LOT of doors and not alot of poeple were home... but it's ok because we had a fun time doing it! haha 

This week we played soccer and like 3 of our investigators showed up! That was awesome! I LOVE PLAYING SOCCER!!!  (actually I only like playing soccer because thats the only time we are allowed to wear pants!) haha I MISS MY PANTS!!! but it's all good cause I probably wouldn't even fit into my pants anymore! haha 

This week we also went on exchanges! I went on exchanges with sister Oliver! She only speaks english so that was fun!  I translated what she wanted to say:) lol and she is a brand new missionary! She is serving a mini mission here in Texas for 6 weeks! She is awesome!

Today I'm going to the discovery museum!!!!!! I'm sooooo excited!!!! And it's usually $20 but for missionaries we get in for $7!!!! woohoo! look at me savin' $$$$ !!

That was probably dangerous... 2/9/2015

This week has been so crazy! But way fun!!!! 

So this week we were just getting into our car at about 9:00 pm in a really scketchy area of Houston, when all of a sudden a guy starts running to our car, I immediately locked the doors and he starts yelling at us he said "HEY I NEED THE DIRECTIONS TO THE CHURCH!!!" so a little confused i decided to open the door to get out and talk to him:) looking back that probably was dangerous but its all good:) He told us that he has been waiting for us to come back to the car for like 3 hours so he could talk to us, he is a member of the church but hasn't gone for like 3 years and now he really wants to start going back! He told us that he was quitting his job so that he could go to church on sunday and with his last pay check he is going to buy a white shirt and a tie so he could come out and teach with us!!!  He is UNREAL!!  He has such a strong testimony and has already been teaching his friends about the gospel:) 

Also this week we were walking in an apt. complex and there were a bunch of workers painting a building and we got a bunch of whistles and "hey mommy" haha and normally we just keep walking but this time I decided to talk to them (they were freaking out that we could speak spanish:) haha and we just started talking about the church:)  It was soooo funny because at the end of the lesson we just had like 10 workers huddled around us talking about the gospel! just picture it! BEST THING EVER! and alot of them are super interested! haha sooo great!!!!

Oh and I got sick this week too! But no worries cause I'm up and running now:)

Alot more happened this week but I have sooo many pictures so I'm gonna cut this short:)

God loves you all so much! And so do I! Have a great week!
