to the little smiley face guy
on the light attached to our apartment building.
He was my favorite.
First off, I'm now in Belmead which is on the west end of the city with Sister Schatmeier! Holy man I forgot what regular wards are like haha Sacrament meeting has a significantly greater amount of babies and noise in general. I love it! This ward is great and there are so many wonderful people that we're teaching!
Fun fact about our area, West Edmonton Mall (used to be biggest mall in the world) is in our area. Missionaries are only allowed to go once on their mission, except us haha
|My first time going to the mall with our homies |
Amarra and Alyssa :D

with Jennay, Anneka, and Kade
There's also Anthony! He is such a rockstar. He just looked up religion online cause he wanted to find God, found mormon.org, requested a Book of Mormon and now he'll be baptized soon as well! He didn't get to come to church on Sunday since a couple of ribs were out of place and he had to go to the hospital, but he still wants to see us twice this week! I'm so excited to watch his love for the gospel keep growing.
|We got to help out with a food drive!|
We went to stop by some homies, but they didn't answer, so we got in our car to figure out where to go next. One of the sisters of the homies we were stopping by had just gotten home and came over to our car to invite us inside. She said "I saw the skirts and knew it was the sister missionaries." We affectionately refer to ourselves as The Skirts now.
Listen, if I tried to tell you all the stuff that's gone down in the last week, I'd be here all day. Just know that I'm happy and healthy and love this work SO DANG MUCH. Sister Schatmeier and I talked for a long time about how there are all these crazy cool things the deeper you dig into the gospel, but that all you need is faith, repentance, covenants, the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. Seriously. You want a happy life? You want to be with your family forever? You want to understand how loved you are and know how to love others? Faith, repentance, covenants, the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. That's seriously it.
Peace and Blessings

|Saying goodbye to Brad! (The sassy one that called me a lying piece of crap that one time)|
|So Mt. Pleasant YSA is named after a cemetery. Had to take a Mt. Pleasant farewell picture.|
|Saying goodbye to sweet sweet Kayla. Imma miss her.|
|George and Daniel (the investigator and lost sheep that ended up living up in the building behind us) had us over for dinner on our last night.|
|All of our lives packed into one tiny little car. Notice Harold in Sister Heredia's hands and my burritos on the middle console. They are both mine and I will not let others have them, so they came with me.|
