So just to start off with, last Monday Sister Meyers and I went to a
jewelry store that everyone talks about here and it's basically the
great and spacious building from Lehi's dream (1 Nephi 8) but probably
with more glitter. After we stumbled around for a while (glitter
blind), we found our way out! We then discovered a less blinding and
expensive store and got matching rainbow unicorn earrings. Best.
We also did a lesson for our stake president's family home evening!
While there he broke out the pictures from his mission in WV and I got
to see a picture of Dad twenty some odd years ago sitting in the
living room eating. What's new?! Haha. He also had pictures of Roy
Chapman's family. It was the craziest thing!
This was a week of meeting after meeting after meeting. But we were
still able to teach a lot of people! So that was great. :) We got to
do a happiness training for our zone! Sounds lame, but it wasn't.
President Chambers brought up D&C 128: 19-22 and we talked about how
no matter the persecution that comes we should choose joy because our
Savior was the most persecuted person that walked the earth, and He
was also the happiest. It doesn't matter what the world thinks when we
know what God and Jesus Christ think!
I got to go to the Saturday morning session of General Conference! And
to make it better, I got to go with Sister Ricks and Sister
Kahaiali'i! There were a bunch of other missionaries from our mission
too but I mostly talked to them. On the way to downtown and home on
trax our group was just sharing the gospel with everyone. It's neat
that no matter where you go or what time it is there is always an
opportunity to do missionary work! We have some of the best
missionaries in our mission. I love these elders and sisters so much.
Saturday afternoon we went to a wedding! Our investigator from NY and
his cute wife got married and we got permission to go! It was great :)
They are some of our favorite people.
We watched conference with one of our ward mission leaders and his
family yesterday. It was fun. We also had Easter waffles with a cute
sister in the third ward last night.
Bishop Newman put up a trampoline in his back yard this weekend for
his grandkids. Sister Meyers and I thought it would be a great idea to
jump on it this morning for workout...we forgot how terribly out of
shape we are and after about 10 minutes we were DONE and decided to do
Tomorrow is my last zone conference! I am so sad! I'm going to miss
the days of people thinking I'm Sister Hinckley from Virginia :(
mostly I'm going to miss teaching people though.
Love you! Be happy!
