Dear Family and Friends,
This week was pretty awesome! We taught 22 lessons and 13 of them were to Less Actives. When I look at these numbers all I think about is Taylor Swift! Just kidding. But, I seriously haven't heard a Taylor Swift song in 50 days!!!! (Not even in a store or at a gas station). What is wrong with the California radio stations!? Don't they know what's good?
Anywho, we had 6 cancelled appointments last weekend, none during the week, just on Friday and Sunday so we tracted a lot on Sunday and found 2 new investigators!! We have appointments with them this week, so we will see how that goes. We had a huge storm on Friday and in Hesperia there are a lot of hills sooo there were like 4 streets that were flooded and we have to take I Avenue everywhere. So we drove a lot on Friday and wasted miles. We get 800 miles per month and Friday was the last day in the month and we only had like 700 miles so it wasn't a big deal.
This week was exchange week so I got to spend 24 hours with Sister P, our sister training leader, (it made me miss Rebecca) instead of Sister S, my companion. It was crazy fun and freezing cold. We had a pretty busy day. We had something every hour, basically. We taught Brother N, James, Kay Allen, Brandon, Rob, Tammy, and Diana. You don't know those people, but it's ok because neither do I!!!! We did have about 5 minutes of free time and we took some nice action pictures of our nerf gun war.
This week I also met Sidney Going's cousin, Sister Smith. For those of you who don't know, Sidney Going was a famous Rugby Player who put his dream on hold to serve a mission. He is an inspiration to me. Sister Smith's like 90 years old. She shared her scrapbooks with us and showed us pictures of New Zealand. She shared a ton of stories. It was a great night!
Yesterday was a great Sunday! In Gospel Principles we read Mosiah 3:12 and it says "Salvation cometh to none...except it be through repentance and faith on the Lord, Jesus Christ". We talked about the word "on". We literally have to put our sins on Christ and allow Him to take them from us for us to be forgiven. When we recognize that He has our sins on Him, it should make us strive to do better.
We also have transfers next Monday. Hopefully I will stay here with Sister Soleta, because we love it here and we love each other. I'll let you know next week. I can't believe I've already been out for 5 weeks. Time flies. Hope everyone has a fantastic week. Love,
