Can you believe its June?!!!!
Hola Familia! Mom! I cant believe someone broke into your car! So sorry that happened :( Haha Im not surprised at all that it was hard when Amanda left on her mission. It wont get any easier when Tash and Pao go either. Yeah its crazy that its already June! I really dont know when that happened, it was really just January haha. Tasha's grad party will be fun! Awww Pao and his first stake dance :) cute!! I cant wait to hear him play the piano again :) The journal sounds great! Thanks! Also YES I got the money, thanks sooooo much :)) it was an exciting surprise :) Amanda looks so cute!!!!!! Sister Adorable is going to be a wonderful missionary! This past week was good but it was a tough one. We were working so hard this whole week to help our investigator Maria prepare for her baptism on sunday night but in the end she decided that she was not going to get baptized yet. We were super bummed but still were able to feel a confirmation that we really had done everything that we needed to and that Heavenly Father was still proud of us. We had a really cool experience though. My comp has been attacked by bugs and has a ton of bites. There was one on her arm and it was swelling and spreading so we took her to the doctor. The nurse that took us back is a less active member that we had been trying to contact for a long time. She has 2 unbaptized daughters. So Tasha, the less active member, was our nurse! It was crazy because she never works in instacare. She was just assigned to work there for that day. She was supposed to be getting married soon. She started talking to us, she recognized us because we sang in church on sunday. She invited us to her wedding and then we met her daughters there so now we are going to start teaching them and they want to get baptized! It was a wonderful miracle. On tuesday we had a special meeting with just the sisters in the mission. It was really cool. I thought that they were just going to talk a lot about how there are a ton of sisters coming into the mission and about sister leadership positions buuut it wasnt at all. we just talked a lot about motherhood. we talked a lot about how we are going to be the mothers of the children that are going to usher in the coming of the Savior. sooo cool right? they talked a lot about how the Lord needed us to come on missions not only to help his children come unto Him through baptism but also that He needed us to come on mission because it is the best preparation for us to be the mothers of these valiant and noble children. then we all had pedicures and a catered dinner :) it was fun! Inline image 1 We just found out this past week that my 2 visa waiter companions now have their visas so they are leaving on the 17th. My other companion is a temple square assigned missionary that was doing her outbound here in salt lake. She goes back to temple square next wednesday. Then the week after that is transfers! So crazy. I love this area, it really is the promised land of the mission. I think that my body is starting to die a little bit though ahah, on pday we just sleep until we have to go out and work again. I love this mission and being able to be a part of this work, its the best ever!
