WOW ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS WEEK WENT BY SO FAST (<< if I had a dollar for every time I said that)
IS ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCING THIS SPEED UP OF TIME OR IS IT JUST ME
Quick thing I forgot to mention last week, sister Tomisin and I went off sugar on March 1st! We have been doing pretty well! There are some loop holes though, for example, if a member feeds us dessert, we are most definitely going to eat it 💁♀️
Wowowowow ok where to begin?? Something exciting happened every day so I’m going to go day by day GET PUMPED
Monday: pedicures with sista griffin, also I found a dress at Old Navy for $2.50 HOLLA, also for our ward FHE movie night we watched 17 miracles ❤️😢
Tuesday: we had a family history ZOOM (do you all know about that app? Awesome videoconferencing app) meeting with sister Dixon and some sisters from the missionary dept, on family history! I am so excited about family history now and talking to people about it in natural ways.
Wednesday: we went to a follow up training for new missionaries and their trainers. It was great! We road tripped to Highland! And sister Tomisin and I finally got a picture by the CRM sign.
Thursday: weekly planning and we volunteered at the Braille institute again
Friday: EXCHANGES in Borrego Springs (an hour south of our area, middle of nowhere) with Hermana Figueroa and Sister Trussell. It was great! We talked a lot about the importance of communicating with companions and those two were actually able to resolve some misunderstandings! I love missions ❤️
Saturday: there was a chalk festival in Indio and some missionaries were drawing something about family history so people could see! We talked to a few people but not a ton which was kind of unfortunate. I was able to draw the Just Serve logo in chalk which was cool!
Sunday: we spoke in sacrament meeting! We spoke on member missionary work and it went great! Sister Tomisin was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo nervous but she seriously did so well. I absolutely loooove talking about member missionary work, I am pretty passionate about it! 😀
Monday (today): we went hiking with our zone for a zone activity! We went to Mecca on this hike called Ladder Canyon. It was soooo fun and the Dixon’s came with us! Also it was HOT (well like 85 degrees) so we got a little sweaty but it was still just a blast.
At our follow up training meeting, Pres Dixon shared Ether 6:1-12 with us from the Book of Mormon. He related it to our mission, how sometimes we will face monstrous waves or be buried in the “water”, but we can have light continually as we rely on our savior Jesus Christ. Those verses are just a great metaphor for life in general too, so I want to invite you all to read those verses this week and relate it to your own life! Study it and figure out what you can do to have light continually. I know that those verses are so inspired, and as you read them you will feel the Spirit of Lord and He will teach you what he wants you to know.
Okay we have another great week ahead of us! Let’s make it a good one! Loooooove youuuuuuu alllllllll 😘😘😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
