-funny- On Tuesday we went over to a members house to help with some gardening and other yard work! Afterwards they fed us dinner:) During dinner the husband was being really funny. When he got up to get dessert he started flickering the lights on and off and the wife asked why he was doing that and he said "Arent you seeing my S.O.S?? I need help!!!" Hahaha it was sooo funny! We were dying! That family is sooo much fun :)
-good- On Thursday we got to go on exchanges with the sisters in Warsaw! I got to be with Sister Gibbs!!! She was my trainer (first companion) and it was cool to be with her again this week! It was just like old times:) Not only was it fun to be back with her but we had a really successful day too! All of our plans went according to plan!!! And that hardly EVER happens!! It was a wonderful day and gave me another boost to work hard and keep working hard!
-bad- There was nothing really bad that happened this week! We definitely had lots of miracles!!! So I will just tell you about another cool experience! On Saturday we were finally back in Mishawaka after 2 1/2 days of being away. That morning we decided to do some service for the community! We rounded up some rakes and went to a neighborhood and just started knocking on doors asking if people wanted us to rake their leaves!! It worked really well and we got to talk to some really cool people! Thats definitely one way that we can meet people and leave a lasting impression of who Mormons are!
-fun- Friday was MLC (missionary leadership council). This is when we get to meet together as Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders with our mission president to talk about the mission and plan how we can help the missionaries and the work in our mission! It was a great day and we accomplished a lot together! I also love getting to see President and Sister Carlson more often! They are awesome and do sooo much for us!
-out of the ordinary- This weekend at church was Stake Conference for the South Bend area! And we (missionaries) got to sing! Saturday night was a missionary choir and we sang 2 songs. Then Sunday morning a bunch of the missionaries joined with the Stake Choir and sang this amazing song called Prince Of Peace! It was an amazing experience and I loved it :)
-spiritual- We got the chance (at MLC) to see a preview of the Christmas Initiative that the church is putting out at the end of the month! They always do a video along with a message every Easter and Christmas about Christ! This years video and message is soooo powerful and I am so excited to get to share the message of Christ with other through this special video! While we were watching the video I just was so overwhelmed with the Spirit and how much God really does love each one of us and we can really help others come to know that love too just by our simple actions and example :)
I love you all! Have a great week!!!
