week 33: the windy city

Monday, June 13th, 2016

WHAT'S UP EVERYONE!! I hope everyone's week was great. It's been a crazy week for us. Very busy. And it's transfers!! Sister Ballew got transferred down to Pheonix to white wash! I know my other half is gone and idk what to do. I don't get much time to email today because we are going down to the valley, I will email individuals on Thursday! Here an update from my week...

Monday night we had Stake FHE. It was way fun. We made brick oven pizza and it was yummy. I love President Hamlin and the stake. I really do feel like Eagar was totally meant for me.

Tuesday we had ZTM! It was good, it's always fun seeing everyone. Sister Ballew was sick that day so we didn't really see anyone. We had dinner at the Gilliams and that was fun.

Wednesday we went to Jessica's temple endowment! She is so cute and I am so happy for her! I got to do baptisms before for an ancestor I found! So that was pretty cool. We finally did weekly planning..yes on Wednesday 5 days later...oops.

Thursday we went to see Cyndie and read the Book of Mormon with her. She cries every time we come by, she is a sweet soul. We had a lesson with Donna. It went really well, she is so fun to teach. We then saw Sheila and Sister Kepler went with us. We then got transfer news!!! I am training again!! Her name is Sister Chausow. I am excited to meet her today!!

Friday we did weekly planning, again lol. We saw Haylie (investigator) and brought Afton (member) and it was a really good lesson! Afton invited her to girls camp and hopefully she will come if she can! Haylie is dating a member named mark who is going to Africa on his mission in August. She is really progressing. And she came to church on Sunday:) we then saw the Tisdells, love them. We showed up to Paula's and she made APIs Navaho tacos, there were so good! She is a caterer. We then went to President Hamblins because sister Ballew wanted to say bye. We had a good visit with them.

Saturday we went to see Dave and Haley and talked about eternal marriage and how Dave can be sealed to his wife who passed on. It was really sweet. We then went to the McGaugheys sealing!! It was the most special/sweetest thing I have ever seen! It was my first time watching a sealing let alone seeing a family be sealed! I then said by to Bae :( I have been with Sister Peterson this weekend and it's been so good! She served here a little bit ago for 7.5 months so she knows the area very well. She has been able to show me people I didn't know and potentials. We saw the Young family and it was good. Holley's son, Quincy, is home. He is 10 years old and wants to be baptized! He doesn't even know who Jesus is so it will be good teaching him. The Youngs have been through a lot that's for sure.

Sunday a lot of people came to church so that was good! After church we went to go see his last named Jackie. We were in an apartment complex and her little girl said come here! Come here! She was the cutest little girl ever. So we went up and contacted her and then right when she opened the door my skirt blew up all the way up to my face! Yes talk about a good impression, they weren't interested to say the least...yeah Eagar is one of the windiest city's ever. No joke. We had dinner at the Hamblins in Nurtioso. It was so fun cause all of their grandkids were there. We then had a lesson with Sally, she came to all three hours of church on Sunday! We then had a lesson with the Armijos, we brought Sister Gleave. It was a really good lesson taking about family. The Armijos are struggling a bit and haven't been to church in a while.

"The gift of the Holy Ghost - in addition to the light of Christ we were born with gives us a great advantage. It is one of the greatest gifts we can receive in mortality because it brings more opportunities for obtaining light & truth. Without the Holy Ghost, we are like a person walking slowly home in the dark with only a flashlight as a guide. When we accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and are baptized, we are offered a floodlight and a guide who knows the way. Now we can walk fast and see our way during our homeward journey." - Elder Lawrence

After I read this quote I just think why wouldn't anyone want to get baptized?! But really I am so grateful for the Holy Ghost in my life. We couldn't do missionary work without Him. He isn't just a little flashlight but a FLOODLIGHT. He opens up so much for us and makes our eyes and minds see more!

I'm grateful for the gospel and for the change it has made in my life. I hope you all have a fab week & don't forget to be awesome!
