-funny- Yesterday (Sunday) after church we went over to a recently baptized member of the church! Her name is Patience but she has a younger sister who's 3 and she is the CUTEST thing ever! We started singing Frozen for her and she has watched the videos so many times that she can do all the dances/hand motions that they do in the movie! It was sooo cute!
-good- We found a new investigator!!!! We went to a neighborhood where a member lives and started knocking on some doors! The next door neighbor of the member talked to us! Her name is Wanda and shes super awesome and nice! She also wanted us to come back and teach her more! We are really excited to see her this week :) Wish us luck!
-bad- We found out earlier this week that a member from the ward, that we see often, husband died. We were so sad to hear the news! He has been sick for a while but he was the sweetest old man and we always talked to him too when we would go over and visit. That was our bad news from the week :(
-fun- I burned a shirt!! It is tradition as a missionary, once you hit your halfway mark that you burn a shirt! Another elder in our district hit his halfway mark this week too so we burned them together! It was kinda scary but definitely fun :)
-out of the ordinary- We have been going to stake choir practice for the last few weeks! It has been really fun! They are low on numbers so they recruited all of us missionaries! In 2 weeks we have stake conference where we will be performing! We are singing a wonderful song about Christ and I just love it sooo much!
-spiritual- So the "4th missionary" is a talk given by an old mission president that we have! Its an amazing (and long) talk! It talks about 4 different types of missionaries: disobedient and goes home, not super obedient but still a missionary, obedient but doing it because he has to, and the full Christ-like willing missionary. The difference between the 3rd and 4th is simply giving up your will to the Lord and doing everything that we do because we truly love God. It was something that really hit me this week and has pushed me to be a better missionary and doing everything, every day, for the right reasons!
Love you all!
