Please Keep Your Arms and Legs In At All Times

The mission could be described in one word: roller coaster. It's a roller coaster of emotions, time, health, sanity, all of the above. This week was definitely a testament to that.

On Monday we had a little fourth of July party at the Trail Center with the sisters. We played some getting to know you games, ate some ice cream and lit sparklers. It was the perfect way to celebrate!

Tuesday we were supposed to have exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders, but they ended up getting into a car accident the day before. They are both ok, but they were still a little sore so we just did a half day exchange. Later that night, Sister Durrant and I went out into our area and met with Brandon, they guy we met while he was washing his car. We taught him about the restoration and he seemed genuinely interested which is always a good thing. But he is very knowledgeable about the bible and kept asking us questions about how things in the bible relate to our church. I wish I knew more about the history behind the bible, so I am planning on trying to study and learn more about it.

On Wednesday we were able to meet Mary. She was a referral from the bishop and, let's just say, she makes me want to be a black woman. She is so cool! She has been to church before and wants to know more. She is about 8 months pregnant and just tells you how it is. We can tell that she's going to be fun!

A big dip in the coaster that we experienced this week was with our investigator, Tatiana. She was originally set to be baptized on the 11th, but on Friday she called us freaking out a little bit. We went over to see her and after talking with her, we decided that it is best to wait. She knows that the church is true and wants to be baptized, but Sister Durrant and I feel like the timing isn't right. Missionary work is the best. It really is! It can just be so discouraging sometimes. But we do have faith and know that everything works out the way that it's supposed to. The Lord is in control!

So although this week was full of ups and downs, it was also full of learning opportunities, tears and laughs along the way. This week was also transfers and I found out that I get to stay here in Eagle Run with Sister Durrant for at least six more weeks! We are both so excited to see what is to come for this new transfer.

I hope the rest of you have a great week! Love you!  
 You can't celebrate the fourth without some good sparkler action.

 I love mah TC Sisters!

 Sometimes I think I'm a gangster and Sister Durrant thinks she's a rat. We're know we're crazy.

Happy five months!
