Dear Family and Friends,
Sorry I am emailing a day late. President is on island so we switched our P-Day.
I guess the first thing to mention about this week is that Sister Saimon and I changed our ring tone to a cat. It works pretty well because if our phone goes off during a lesson people don’t notice… unless they don’t have a cat and they freak out! We have gotten some pretty funny responses. They think there is a stray cat around them or in our bag or something. But we like it!
This week I got Alex and Tiff’s package! That was pretty exciting! All the sisters are so excited to eat some Score Cake this week! Especially Sister Bradford, she asked me this morning if she can make it. No complaints here! Thanks so much for spoiling me Alex and Tiff!
The Brimhalls (senior couple) finished their mission this week. So on Monday they had a family night at the church for them. It was really nice. A lot of people showed up! And afterwards there was food, so that is always a bonus. It is going to be pretty weird to not have a senior couple on island. It is really hard to get senior couples to come to this mission. Almost impossible really.
But because they left we all 4 moved into their apartment so they can re-model ours. We also got their car! So now the other sisters drive the nice Chevy Cruze! They love it. And Sister Saimon and I get the ghetto Toyota Yaris. But we are just grateful to have a car!
There were so many funerals this week! So hard to find and teach people. But everything worked out. It was mostly hard for the other sisters but they are still smiling and worked hard all week!
On Saturday we got to watch the Saturday session of General Conference.. it was so good! I am so happy I finally got to watch it! I attached a picture of one of the Branch President’s because his back was really hurting so he was listening on the floor, it was pretty funny.
On Sunday we were on a typhoon watch or something. One event led to another and church was canceled. Turned out to be a tropical storm and nothing happened but it rained so hard! But President and Sister Zarbock are on island so we did a mini sacrament meeting on Sunday which was pretty cool. They just passed the sacrament to us and then had a couple spiritual thoughts. Then we went out teaching as much as we could. No body wanted us to come because there was either a funeral or it was raining too hard but we got it figured out.
Yesterday at Zone Conference we mostly talked about the Book of Mormon. It was really good! And we finally have more Book of Mormons to hand out again. We run out of Book of Mormons ALL the time! It is so annoying, but we work it out. But it’s not too late for all of us to finish the Book of Mormon before the end of the year!
Love and miss you all!
Have an awesome week,
