I HAD THE BIGGEST SHOCK OF MY LIFE THIS WEEK.
You know how people talk about those moments when your heart just gets tight and you want to cry?
That happened to me!
I now have a testimony that I know that those kind of experiences really do happen.
My heart was actually surprised and had a whole bunch of joy in there.
I was sitting next to Exxxxxo during the opening hymn of Sacrament meeting and I make eye contact with..... BxxxA?!!? I was soooo shocked! Hermana Cuesta had NO IDEA either that they had planned to come!
Bxxxxa, Jxxxt, Junior, Axxxxxy, and Axxxxxs all came down from North Sacramento to see us!
We spent church together and afterwards we went to a park near Leilani's house and ate together.
I love them all so much. It was the perfect way to start off this transfer!
I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!
Junior told me I speak Spanish way better now! haha. Anthony called me a princess. They told me that they both want to be missionaries someday. I guess Axxxxxy had to get called out at school because he wanted everyone to call him Elder Sxxxxxr. His dad had to tell him that in the house he can be Elder Sxxxxxr, but at school he has to stay Axxxxxy! Junior told me all about his scout camp and he loved it so much!!
aaahhhh This family is my favorite. These people are my favorite. I am so happy.
BEST SUNDAY EVER!
Here are a whole bunch of pictures of the people I love.
Here are some pictures from LAST WEEK when I said goodbye to my bebe Veragray.
I wore the same outfit as the first day I met her, and she matched me hahaha... nothing like 12 weeks to put you in sync.
It was a sad day. We went and had vegan ice-cream together and ate it at a park.
Axxxxd is our ward mission leader, and Leilani is a ward missionary. We have had some great times at correlation together.
AS FOR THIS WEEK:
I would like to announce that I have successfully ran (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) 1.6 miles each day. (Sing with me, "I'm on my way to fitness and happiness todaaaayyyy uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh").
I motivate Hermana Cuesta to get out of bed, and she motivates me to keep running. We are a team!! I start my six months to sexy soon, so I am working on that :)
Exxxxo received the priesthood this Sunday! I didn't get a chance to see him after church, so we are going to visit him today.
I drove up to
to get trained on being a Sister Training Leader (STL). Hermana Jardine videotaped me role-playing telling a Sister missionary her skirt was too short and I about nearly died. Filming me does NOT bring out my best self but by the end we had an appointment to go thrift store shopping so I think my methods will work for now, and I will learn stuff along the way. It will be an adventure for sure! Sacramento
|BACK IN MY BELOVED SACRAMENTO|
I got to see Elder Poulton, and Elder Mortensen that came out with me there, because they are both District Leaders now! Cool stuff!
We had a conference Skype call with all the Zones that will be leaving the
mission. We got to ask questions about exactly what will be happening. So here are some answers that you might be interested in knowing: Modesto
Mission split will happen next Sunday ((28th of June)
-The new address to the mission office is:
California Modesto Mission /
4300 Dale Rd / , CA / 95356. Modesto
-New mission phone number is 209.543.9400
- The new mission zones will be
Lodi, Stockton, Manteca, North Modesto, , and Turloc! Modesto
- We are turning in our i-Pads in at the end of today, and if you have paid for it, you will get refunded soon.
All the missionaries in this new mission will be on different transfer cycles. So that means I just got a mission extension!! I will be coming home 14 days later than anticipated, so the end of January! If I get an extension again, that will mean I have served a 20 month mission (look out Elders haha!!)
Well I hope you all have a good week.
Tell dad not to worry his Father’s Day card is coming.
Love you all so much!!!
