Ashely moved back from Albuquerque this pastso we've been teaching her! I called up Pres. and asked about a baptism and she is going to be baptized probably on or the day before! AWESOME. She's been holding up pretty good, she quit smoking the day we went over the WoW and is golden. A month ago today Todd passed away, so we're glad she's down here for us to teach and to check up on.
My comp's a diabetic...so he pricks his finger a butt load amount of times throughout the day, but props to him as it doesn't bother him....it makes me think back to when I passed out on my bday during an eye exam hahahah. Yup. Still want to be a doc..
My comp. E. Dayley finished probably the grossest sucker ever...it was a red chili sucker....mine just went into the garbage can haha.
Our new district is awesome, along with the last one. There's a Sister Hale here, so lots of people call her Sister Hales or call me Elder Hale....good thing there's a gender difference haha.
Our awesome district. Such hard workers. Some lady randomly gave us this pie and thanked us for everything and then left! No idea who she was, but it was awesome. Doesn't happen to often here haha.
While talking to Pres. on the phone about the changes, he said he "Expects Deming to explode." hahah. That's our goal....to make Deming explode!.....literally.
We taught Ryan Reece who also has a date for the 1st but will be interviewed by Pres. before final decisions are made. We had a very strongly led by the spirit lesson with him, as he's been going through a ton. Here's a journal entry:
"..and Ryan we went over multiple things. He's been chewing more, but realizes the blessings in his life. He went on about how he feels overloaded w/ not being able to see his 4 kids and that not even his parents acknowledge him. He cares so much for his kids and will start saving money for them. Ryan is such a sick guy. He told us he wan't sure about the committment to the Mormon church. Then Bro. Loutonsky nailed it w/ his testimony. We went over so many things about life. I shared Mosiah 24: 14-16 and "God may not come when you want him to, but he's always on time" and "It wasn't easy for Him, why should it be for us?" -JRH. E. Dayley asked him about getting a blessing. When people are going through trials, it's a blessing that I receive comfort while talking to them. Wish I could remember some things that were said...suck. Such a cool experience. He then asked me for the blessing, lots of directing things were said..post blessing moments are just awesome. To be able to see non-members feel the spirit so strongly means whatever just happened is accepted of God. We've been greatly blessed w/ lessons. On our way to reach the SOE. Feeling the Holy Ghost are often feelings (I believe) from our pre-mortal existence & are accepted by God. No wonder trying to be humble is so crucial. We can't afford to risk anything for people's salvation."
Well there's the just of it..I'll include a journal entry sometimes if it isn't to 'personal' or whatever, but I don't mind sharing things for the blog world haha.
We were invited to a Qunsinllera where it's a huge party for a 15 bday....basically it's as big as a Wedding, but we saw this awesome truck (rims).
We have Zone Conference (5/21) and it's at the Stake Center in Pima. I'm singing with one of the ZL's, Sister Hallet from our district, and then another Sister from somewhere else. There willl be a few zones there so it should be sweeet. We're singing the 'Vocal Point' version of "Savior, Redeemer of My Soul." So crazy to think I'll be near my Sister's in-laws! It's like a 6 hour meeting so not sure what's going to throw down.
BMW X4. Sexy.
Fllipping off (not really....I'm a missionary) the 'University of Arizona' A on the little mountain. Go ASU!!
Being on a mission at this age is a once in life time deal, so we're trying to live with no regrets. Busting our butts off for the Lord. So many prayers are directed towards missionaries, it's incredible. Thank you everyone for the prayers, for all missionaries. There's reasons missionaries are able to have the spirit with them, one being because of the prayers from everyone. There really hasn't been one morning where I'm stoked out of my freakin' mind to be awake early...especially days we have to get up sometimes as early as, but there's never a night where I don't love being apart of this work.
We've been greatly blessed, and things are progressing. Thank you everyone for the incredible support! Love to hear what's going on in everyone's lives! Sounds like a ton of people are going on missions...awesome. Pretty sure half of Utah will be leaving hahah.
So many things are learned on a mission....blows my freakin' mind.
This is the drunk lady that fell off the fridge last week hahahahah
Yo Tengo Sueno.
Stay real. :]
