I forgot what it's like to have energy. I seriously hit my pillow so hard and pass out every night. WE ARE SO TIRED. BUT WHAT A BLESSING TO BE SO EXHAUSTED :) We are busy as ever. Here is the week in review:
Last pday we had a plants pday and went and found some cool plants and took some nice comp pics in the forest. yes it was raining. No we haven't seen the sun all week. But dont worry mom I have my vitamin D tablets that I take daily so my skin doesnt die.
Then we had exchanges with the hermanas de Graham where Hermana McGarity came here to the Fed. We had an awesome opportunity to prestar servicio and we went and helped tear up carpet from this office building for 3 hours. My forearms are still sore in typing this letter.. but it was an awesome way to help show how BUFF MISSIONARIES ARE. And my buff I definitely mean spiritually. But Hermana Mcgarity was here for the whole thing and wow it jsut made me realize how much i love exchanges because they teach ME so much!
This week we also increased so much in unity with the elders in our branch. So for most of the time ive been here in federal way its been like this annoying vibe between us and the elders because theres almost like a jealousy when the other was teaching a good family and i hated it because its all one work! This week we recieved so much revelation while planning of families that the elders need to start teaching and theyn they did too so we were switching off investigators and really starting to find the key for the area to help these people come unto Christ. So many miracles came from it! Including that the elders are now teaching the boyfriend of Petra who has come to church a ton but never home when we teach Petra so we've been trying to figure it out and it jsut came that he needs the elders. So now he's learning and has a wife in mexico but wants to divorce her so he can marry petra and petra is like a power woman and says like 'whatever i'm getting baptized so whatever works". SHES SO AMAZING. We are hoping that satanas will be TIED UP this week and everything goes well so she can make this covenant with our heavenly father :)
More service we prested this week was the ward had a huge activity to help the jovenes raise money for camps this summer and they put the branch in charge of all the food... clasico... so we helped make over 1500 ENCHILADAS. What a blessing. We are still eating the extras. I LOVE HISPANIC FOOD. At the activity, all the mujeres jovenes and hombres jovenes had differnt like acts they did and our lil investigator kimberly was in the mujeres jovenes dances and she was SO CUTE AND LOVED IT. I want to raise my future family in a spanish branch because wow they just love dancing and love life. Anyways, miracles and miracles later, we were brought to the Sabbath where it literally gives me so much strength and peace just entering the chapel and realizing that I did nothing this week but our Heavenly Father did so much. The church is true and I'm so grateful to be a missionary.
Ew side note they sent me this sick letter saying I was halfway done with my mission this week.... Still in denial. LOVE YOU ALL
