Yeah we're pretty cute.
Our original district before
Sister Van Valkenburg left
and the greatest tri-pan
in the history of tri-pans
We tried to sing on the University campus again, but it was kinda raining and we didn't have as many people as we usually do. Still way fun though! Sister McSweeney from my first district is always there and she is just so dang fun 😄 Plus she's from England so has the greatest accent. We decided we're gonna be companions someday 👍🏻
Hooooooly cats weekly planning took all day this week. We were trying to figure out plans for two areas and we seriously only left our apartment for one lesson with a less-active in the afternoon and dinner. I felt like I was going crazy, but we did make some good progress in figuring out both the areas and I'm really excited for the work. We're all ready to work hard to make this area awesome.
So I climbed the tree.
Then more people climbed the tree.
Then we took a picture.
I read something along those lines this morning in President Eyring's talk from priesthood session. "I have learned that the only exhortation that changes hearts comes from the Holy Ghost." We ask the people we teach to change a lot of things in their lives, but they'll only be willing to do it when the Spirit testifies to them that it's worth it. CAUSE IT IS. If we want to be happy now and in the eternities, the kind of happiness God wants for us, we've got to do it. We've got to live the way He's said to. It's really the only guarantee we'll ever have. That God loves us and wants our happiness and has provided a perfect way to have it.
Peace and Blessings
P.S. We went to try and contact a potential we've tried by several times with no answer. We could see lights on, but no one was answering our knocks. We finally rang the doorbell and this guy named Tyler answered the door. When he answered he had one leg bent, like he was standing on just one leg, and my first thought was we made a gimp answer the door and I felt so bad. He kind of stood there struggling with his bent leg for a second and then finally put his foot down and said, "Yeah. It's stuck." He had somehow managed in his rush to put on pants to answer the door to get his leg in between the lining of his sweat pants and the outer layer of fabric. We all stood there and just laughed for a solid 30 seconds before we could even introduce ourselves. He tried to fix it a couple more times while we were on the doorstep and every time we all just laughed again.
P.P.S. Red dot day #7 is gone and passed
