This is what happened this week :)

Ashton is such a Stud!! Thanks for sending the pictures! Dad´s scar is gnarly, thanks for that too.

So basically Hermana Stone is amazing and she does everything that Presidente Heyman says to do. She's very patient with me, it´s not like I don´t apply what he teaches us, I´m just Human and can´t figure it out sometimes, but ya know, I do what I can. We've been working more this week with inspired questions. I really feel like I´m back in Mr. Cox´s journalism class. There really is a ton of work that goes into a question that makes someone think, build a relationship with Christ and give more than a single worded answer. We´ve also been practicing a ton more. It´s helped, and now we´re more confidant in what we teach. 

We also had Zone conference this last week, which was amazing. The Zone leaders called us and said that we wanted to match as a zone, and we had planned on it anyway, but to wear pink for valentines day, and the boys wanted green for who knows why. Turns out most of us had more of a navy blue, so we chose that instead. Hermana Heyman seemed to have gotten the vibe and matched us.

Crazy story. We went out to work the other day (weird I know!) and the sky seemed rather clear just a few clouds, and so we left with out our umbrellas. Next thing we know this wall of crazy looking thunderstorm clouds comes running across the sky, the winds blowing really hard, and we´re starting to get wet. We stop under a tree, sort of , to put our books in bags so they don´t get destroyed , and the next thing we know the power lines start exploding! We got out of there so fast, but not fast enough to escape the rain. We had to go under a Kiosco to attempt to stay a little bit dry. There´s an adventure for you for the week. :) What are some of yours?

Hermana Stone shared a scripture with me this week that I really liked. It´s in D&C 45:62. It´s amazing and made my day.

Hermanas Johansen, Lund, Allred, Healey: Our first leadership conference all together.

I love you all and hope you are all having a wonderful week and will make a huge difference in someone´s lives in the week to come by sharing your testimonies by word and most of all by deed.

Congrats on  your Baptism Riley! Love ya, babe! 

Love you all. Be good! and Keep safe! Can´t wait to hear form you again next week.

What happened this week??? Is an inspired question if there ever was one....

First off, I hope ya´ll are plenty happy. I just finished sending a plethora of photos home, and it eats up a ton of email time. 

Alright this week we had Leadership Conference, Zone Conference, and divisiones again, so it was a long and short week at the same time. But I´ll tell ya what! Working with Hermana Stone is pretty fantastic. We found someone new in almost all of the lessons we had we found someone new to teach. We've been working a ton with Vane´s family trying to get their brother into the water. We´re thinking that Pali´s gonna need his mom here to help him not be embarrassed while we´re teaching him. I think he´d be really comfortable with the elders, he´s a little shy with us, kinda always has been. So . . . guy friends of mine, if you have any tips on how to help a 15 year old boy feel comfortable with the Sister Missionaries feel free to let us know. It´ll be great, he´ll be all over it in his own time. Vane tells us that he really does want to be baptized, he´ll flip through the pamphlets and pray with them, so we´ll just have to see how this works out. We´re talking with a few of his friends too. 

I finally got some shoes for when Presidente. Heyman's around! I got really tired of having to hide my feet cause I don´t have shoe polish and I've almost worn them clear through. They´re cute, and you can REALLY see my sister missionary lines on my feet, that should be tons of fun. 

I hope things on Sunday went alright! Thanks for sharing your talk with me mom, I think I finally figured out why I love the 2000 stripling warriors story so much. What´s funny is it got me to think about where you were and where I am at the time of life that I´m at. You would've been married for a year and Steven would be there with you and dad, and here I am on a mission. Totally different, but so similar at the same time. I´m no mom right now but I know that what I´m doing now will help me do what the Lord wants me to do all the better when that time comes. 

I hope everyone´s doing alright and that you´re all healthy and safe. Keep up the good work! Riley I hope you´re super excited for your baptism! I´m really excited for you. SARAH ALLAN! Happy 20th BIRTHDAY! I love you and miss your face!. Thanks for the letter, and I can´t wait to hear form you again. I hope that friend of yours that you have a mutual agreement with helped you have a fantastic day. I´m not sure why, but your birthday was really hard for me to miss, it surprised me how much I missed being there for ya. I´ll be there for sure next year.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Love you all, Keep on keeping on, and share the gospel a little.
