Sister Woodbury and I are staying together another one!! Woohoo! We are so excited! But because of the sorry excuse for a holiday yesterday (Columbus Day), our pday was changed to today. So tah dah! Today we are emailing. I love Sister Woodbury a lot, she is a great help and comfort to me and we get along great, so it's going to be a great next 6 weeks!!
This week, not much went down so I'm trying to think of fun stories.
Superwas this week (craft day with the Relief Society sisters), and it was so much fun to get to know the great sisters in our ward!! We learned how to make homemade chocolate and dip it and everything! We made the nougat, weighted and melted the chocolate--we did it all. How nifty is that?? It was awesome!! And delicious. SOOOOO delicious. If it didn't take so much time/money/work, I'd make them all the time.
We found another solid investigator this week!! Her name is Dollie!! Remember a couple weeks ago how I told that cool tracting story about the man who doesn't believe in organized religion, but we were super bold with him anyway? Well, we went to follow up with him this week, and we got to talk to his wife as he really isn't interested. We pretty much taught the whole restoration lesson on the doorstep and she kept saying things like, "Wow, that makes SO much sense!" "Really? I've always had that question, but never found an answer!" It was so cool! She also told us, "The boy missionaries have come by so many times and tried to tell me this same thing, but they didn't pitch it like you did! You sold it!" Haha So she told us to come back. We came back 2 days later, gave her a Book of Mormon, taught her, and she is a new investigator!! She is so solid and has a lot of real intent! We are so excited to work with her more!!! She is concerned with her family, so we are excited to tell her that the gospel blesses families. :)
Sister Woodbury is officially TWENTY so now we're oldies together! Woohoo! In celebration, we ate at the Kler's last night for initiation burgers and tres leches cake and it was delicious! What are initiation burgers, you ask? Well, they are homemade, cheese stuffed burgers that are about the size of my hand that are at least 2 inches thick. They are to die for, but sooo filling. The first time you have burgers at the Kler's, you get a big one and then after that you get a normal sized one. So I got a normal sized one and it was just great. :) So it was a fun birthday celebration for sure!!
The new sister that came to replace Sister Edwards is Sister Williamson, and she is so sweet! She is with Sister Mower now and they are going to get along great! Yesterday, all 3 sets of sisters went toGreat Harvest for lunch before doing service at Joshua's Storehouse and it was so fun to get to know each other a bit more. :)
In past companions news.......Sister Manning is now training!!! WOOHOO!!! And Sister Jensen goes home...WEIRD!
and I think that's a wrap! Sorry it;s so boring this week, it'll be better and longer this week. LOVE YOU!
Home primary with the Wintertons and their friend! We were studying the evidence that the
Book of Mormon is true, so we needed our detective mustaches! :)
