For example, one day this week we ate lunch with the Breceda family at noon. Then, we randomly went to serve a member. So from 1:30-2:00, we are outside mowing and weekwacking the lawn. Yeah, dumb. I know. (It was hot and we were sweating.) So, the member comes up to Hermana Walker and asked her a question. When I asked Hermana Walker what the member said, she responded with "I don’t know what she said... I just said yes". As we walked in after finishing the yard we found out what the member had asked her. She had prepared hamburgers for us, A WHOLE OTHER MEAL. So, we ate…again! At 5:00 that same evening, we had a dinner appointment with a member we just confirmed. The long story short... we couldn’t cancel it. So, we ate another meal. Again! Looking back I have no idea how I did it. It disgusts me. I am honestly surprised I kept it down. My stomach has not been the same since. Anyway.... onto "lighter things".
Sad news: the Breceda family is wanting "more time". Good News: that family is amazing! This last week we taught them all of the commandments in one night... THAT’S A LOT. The mom cried because she loves the Law of Chastity! Who does that! The spirit is so strong with that family because the mom is really getting it. When we left on Tuesday, we left with boxes of coffee, tea, and tequila! I haven’t seen anyone change like them before.
I had the opportunity to get a blessing this week from my zone leaders. I am so grateful for the priesthood. I am so grateful to see the priesthood work here on a mission. What a blessing and opportunity men have been given to bless the lives of others. I love it!
Well, I’m going to get my hair cut today! Wohoo!! Hopefully we can buy fabric to get some skirts made. I have like no clothes anymore...oops. It’s just too hot for like... any of them.
Be at the meeting on Sunday! We got even more news this morning that the announcements are going to be huge! It’s going to be one of those things that people talk about and if you were at home taking a nap or out home teaching you will regret not being there!
