I have too many stories to tell, so much happened this week, like crazy things! I know I say that almost every week, but I'm serious this time! We had exchanges this week & guess who I was with?! Sister Willes!! (Thee best trainer of all time!!) So that was so dang fun. We did service decorating trees & a newspaper guy was there, so look for us in the McLean, VA newspaper for us decorating some amazing Christmas trees! Then we went caroling with the other sisters. It was so dang funnnnn!!
Then another day we did service there & we were making sandwiches.
Sister Morris put wayyyyy wayyyyy too much mayo in before I added the tuna, so
we had to strain the mayo out of the tuna, so it would be okay to serve. So my
hands were covered in mayo & tuna... my hands stunk for a couple days,
haha! I'll send a pic, just you wait!! Then we sung in the choir to these low
income families, it was amazing!
We were in downtown Arlington street contacting & like 3 guys hit on us.
It was a Friday night, so that should explain a lot. One was like, "I would
buy you a beer, but I don't think you drink those." Haha you couldn't be
more correct! Then he went in for a hug...my hand has never jumped out for a
handshake so fast! Slightly proud of my reflexes. Also the guy that texted us
that he wants to be baptized....ya we meet with him & that's all I'm gonna
say, weirdest meeting of my life.
LISTEN TO THIS: so it's 2 in the morning & we hear a car breaking and
then a big boom!! The Spirit finally kicks me out of bed & I look out the
window & I see a car wrapped around a pole. Yes. A POLE. SO I CALLED 911!!
It was crazy!! 3 firetruck, 8 policemen, 3 fire & rescue trucks, 2
ambulances, 1 tow truck, & finally 1 light guy. I sat on my bed &
watched for 2 hours. It was crazy! I am pretty positive he died on impact. so dang sad, but that was a crazy crazy night!!
One member had 60 FREE WREATHS to give out, so we took 18 amazing wreaths
& we have been giving them out to about everyone! ITS LIKE THE BEST
TRACTING IDEA EVER. *note to other missionaries* people change when you give
them a free wreath!!😂 We ran I to this guy. He was so open to listen, he was like talk I'm listening.... what
excuse me?! Seriously? You're listening to us?! I was so happy! As I was
bearing my testimony he put his hand over his heart & said, "I can
feel the power & happiness of what you are saying!" Amazing!! So we
are meeting with him tomorrow!! Yay.
We had a member of the Seventy (Elder Bennett) come & speak to our
mission. Oh my gosh amazing. The Spirit was so strong. I know this is the
mission God called me to. I am so blessed to be able to have these people in my
life. I love missions so much!!! I hope you all have a great week. I love you
& so does your Father in Heaven!
