Happy Tuesday!Wow, I don't think I've ever been so excited for a P-day, probably because I'm so used to them on Mondays and I desperately needed a break to rest and not be go, go, go for one day out of the week.
Sister Warner and I were jealous about how people were talking about going camping, so we decided to make a blanket fort in our living room, and put our mattresses underneath it. We slept out there for over 3 nights but put everything back into our rooms because at times the blanket would fall on us in the middle of the night and wake us up.
We're going to roast marshmallows over the stove today to pretend we're camping. Fun fun! Sister Warner had leftover sparklers from 4th of July so we lit them last night in celebration to Memorial Day.
|Happy Memorial Day!|
I've loved having inspired training from President Harding about how members and missionaries are really uniting as one to help others received the restored gospel. I'm in awe on how members really open to us missionaries about their lives, and how we continue to learn from one another about the Plan of Salvation, faith, and how to apply the Atonement into our lives. I know that as we continue to bind together, missionary work is going to blossom! A quote I heard this week was, "If you were being arrested for being a disciple of Christ, would there be enough evidence?"
We saw H. on Saturday (she's the daughter in the family who attends the Community in Christ church)- she was studying for finals and she was sick but she still let us in! It was so great because she had so many questions about the Plan of Salvation and she said she was going to start reading the Book of Mormon. We set up a time to come on Sunday, and we got her texting number so she could tell us if she needed a ride or not. She didn't show up for church since her Mom took her to Atlanta, but we went to her house that evening and she wasn't there. Her Dad answered the door and told us that he appreciates our efforts, but H. told him that "I told them I'd go to church, but I don't want to and I don't want to hurt their feelings." Sister Warner and I have been getting the weirdest vibes from him ever since we've met him (which is about the 3rd or 4th time) and I feel like he was lying to us. We mentioned that she was asking a lot of questions, but he was just saying she's inquisitive and ended the conversation. We're pretty sad so we texted her asking if it was true, and if so that she'd have a good summer and so on. She's never replied.
We also found a dead wasp in our car the other day, we keep the windows partially rolled down to let the breeze in. This is just a bug infested week!I hope everyone has had a great week, and to "always remember to rise up and become the person you were meant to be!" "As you lose your life in the service of Father in Heaven's children, Satan's temptations lose power in your life.
