Happy Easter Week 3-30-2015
Happy Easter Week!!!!!
- after ZTM we went on exchanges with the STL's. I was in Abingdon with
Sis. Husted. We went to the Pafford's house afterwards. I'm going to be
playing the piano for her son's wedding May 9th! Wooo! It's really
frustrating when you can see a song you want to suggest, but you just
can't think of the name. I can see the sheet music in my head, but
nothing more...AAH! that's what happens when you've been away from the
"real world" .... all the songs just leave your brain! :p It finally
started warming up!! WHOOOOOOO!
- Had a good day with Sis. Husted visiting people. On the way to
exchange back, I got to a stop sign, and there was NO ONE THERE!
Suddenly as I'm driving onward I hear a loud blaring of a car horn. I
look in my mirror to see this car pulling behind me speedily. I look in
the car to see a woman freaking out using her hands. When we come to a
stop light, I see her writing my license plate number down! REALLY?! I
did NOTHING WRONG! Even Sis. Husted agreed! Psh...whatevs. An experience
for the mission :p At night I only had 1/4 piece of my tranquil sleep
left, and a half piece. As I was praying that night, I asked that HF
would help the one I take act as a full pill. I felt inclined to take
the 1/4 one.
- At night as I was praying, I felt inclined to eat all of the 1/2 one.
I asked, "But what if I need some for tomorrow night?" thinking I would
just bite that one in half and have a 1/4 for both nights. The thought
came to that a bottle of Tranquil sleep would come "tomorrow" from my
mom. Again, I felt I was told to take the whole 1/2 pill. So, I did.
- At night I opened the mail box- LO AND BEHOLD there was a package
with my TRANQUIL SLEEP! WHAT A BLESSING! I cannot express my gratitude
for the Gospel! And the Holy Ghost! Everyone always asks me what my
favorite part about the mission is. I always answer, "The mission Spirit
(other than bringing souls to Christ of course!) I'M SO BLESSED!
Had a great lesson with Lori Price during the day! Sis. Burlett came with us! Taught the Plan of Salvation!
was all about families! I loved it SO much!!! Got some great notes out
of it! It's only an hour long. I'd highly suggest watching it! Even you
men out there!
- Fast Sunday!!! LOOOVED it! 4 INVESTIGATORS CAME TO CHURCH! INCLUDING
JUAN!!! yippi!!!! They all left after sacrament...BUT WAS STILL
went to look for a member in our church with our bishop, but the people
at the apt told us he moved to Johnson city. So, we ended up teaching
those guys there, and got two new investigators! SCORE! We also got to
visit some members who were in the hospital with Bishop. Good
experience. Had a delicious dinner at the Smith's.
/ Today - Got my heart monitor! whoooo! Annoying little thing.
Hopefully it'll show what's going on :p Only have to wear it for 24
deff blessed out here on my mission! More than words can express! I'm
very grateful for this opportunity and the experience! I love it with
all my heart! Transfers is the 8th, but I'll be staying! YIPPI!
you know how when you start to relax and day dream - how you start day
dreaming about lovely fun and crazy stuff? Well, my day dreaming was
always about home life before my mission, or what I would do after my
mission, college life, etc. I always tried to force myself to daydream
about the mission life. About a week ago as a I was day dreaming, or
waking up to thought, I realized they were ALL about my mission - about
the people we're seeing and how I can best help them! I AM MORE THAN
GRATEFUL! I love being a missionary! Heavenly Father has truly helped
and blessed me!!! WHATTA BLESSING!
that's all folks! And don't forget to watch General Conference this
Weekend (4th and 5th) to hear and see the Prophets and Apostles talk!!!
