Hello my most beautiful family in all the world 🙂 It sounds like it’s cray cray out there in Utah! Ok so let me jump right in! It is crazy here.
Monday: We had a great P day! I’m sending pictures through the mail because let’s face it… The internet and computers here are stinkish. But it was great! P-days are the best day of my life. I have never liked Mondays until now.
Tuesday: We had District/Zone meeting. It was legit! I love getting to meet everyone 🙂 We met this awesome dude M.!!! AWWWWWW he is so solid! He’s been taking our lessons and has a baptismal date!!! July 6th. He is literally the coolest Rasta man I ever did meet. They talk so funny here… Instead of saying “her” they “she” So people say “I love she bad” Which means “I love her a lot”. I WILL NEVER SPEAK LIKE THE PEOPLE HERE. Or even understand them for that matter! It is so difficult. I’m still working on understanding them.
Wednesday: We had a lesson with this Investigator M. SHE IS WONDERFUL! She is reading the BOM and asking tons and tons of questions. Soaking it all up 🙂 Then we visited M. and M. M. asked me if I was 14……………………….………………………………………………………………………………………….. Needless to say I have been sure to wear make up the last few days, so I don’t look like I’m “14”….. Ridiculous. ANYWAY. M. she is so cute. Right in the middle of our lessons she’ll tell me she likes my eyes and funny stuff like that!
Thursday: BEST DAY EVER! We didn’t have our car for the first half of the day so we walked an hour and half to a recent Converts house and almost died of heat, sweat and blisters 🙂 We went to see E. She is the best old lady EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALmost as good as LaRee. Speaking of which will you see how my cute old lady is doing? Tell Toby to tell her hello for me and that I love her with all my heart ok??
Friday: WORST DAY YET. I was really sad on friday and no one would listen to us and it all just felt like a hopeless cause. M. wouldn’t call us back and two other of our investigators… I WAS SO TIRED I thought I would die! But it’s all good.
Saturday: Lots of cancels….. Oh wait…. That is erey day. We played cricket at the YSA activity! We went to a baptism… Which gave me hope because people here DO NOT listen and it’s good to know!
Sunday: Was great! We mostly visited recent members and had a few lessons! We are working so so so hard. And our numbers actually look fantastic! It’s the commitment that is hard and people will set up appointments and then say they are too busy or not be home at the time we go back… It is rough but I’m learning so much here and I love my companions very much. We all work great together. We have great times and laugh so much and just enjoy each other! I’m going to start driving here soon!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I also have the worst tan lines in the world. I’ll send a letter and postcard soon.
Mommy: Hello you beautiful mom! How are you?? It sounds like you are doing awesome!!! I LOVE YOU! Will you send some physical pictures to me? Some of the fam and some of me and my friends and one of me and Keat??? You can get some off of facebook and everything too! I really love it here a ton! Tell Melis that I love her so much and I’m proud of her. And not to scare you….. BUT it is pretty skecth here! It is cool I am being safe.
Daddy: Sounds like a lot of driving! I’m ssorry! I have to start driving on the wrond side of the road soon! Today actually! I hope you are doing great! Happy Late Fathers Day 🙂 🙂 I love you and I am so glad i have you for my dad.
Have a great week everyone!!!! I love you guys so much and I’m so glad to be out here working my bum off (I wish, I’m getting chunk status) Anyway thought for the week…. While we were walking and didn’t have our car we were talking about how uncomfortable it was. And I said hey that is just missionary work. If you are not uncomf you’re not being a good missionary. You have to talk to people who glare at you (everyone here). You walk all day. Sweat your guts out. Get rejected. It is very hard but such a good experience! The church is true! If it wasn’t I wouldn’t be out here! I LOVE IT HERE! Besides the hard times the good always outweighs it 🙂 Tell Colin I say hello and I think he’s awesome. LOVE YOU!!! Love, Sister Emily
