Hermana Kelsey 16:1 -email-
Hello! How is everyone?! I’m doing good. It is so hot and humid today. I am really not looking forward to this summer. The humidity is killer here. But anyway, we’ll survive. We are almost out of miles for the month, so we are walking to our dinner after this. I’m not sure what the temperature is now, but it will for sure be getting hotter soon.
Monday: We had an awesome noche de hogar with Bishop M. and his family. We had our investigator, M., and his sister, N., who is a recent convert there, and it was pretty good. They are an awesome family. They are from Peru, and the Hermana had a stroke a little while back so she has trouble talking and one side of her face doesn’t move. But their three sons are the sweetest things ever to her. They are always loving on her, and helping her out. It is so cute. 🙂 I want to have boys like that someday. 😉
Wednesday: I turned 15 months in the mission! WOOOOWWW! Sister M. and I went to QT (it’s a gas station here in Texas), and we got a doughnut for 49 cents and 69 cent drinks! Woooohoo! It was fun. Then later in the day an hermana brought us dinner at the church (sometimes they do that if it is more convenient for them), and she also brought us drinks from QT. It was great.
Thursday: We had zone conference! It was super good. Sister M. and I received a lot of revelation for our investigators and how we can help them. We also watched part of a movie where a guy ran less than a 4 minute mile. It was unbelievable!!! He was literally sprinting almost full speed the whole 4 laps. It was super cool. I wish I could do that…maybe with training. 🙂
Saturday: We were going to go to another set of english elders’ baptism, but it ended up getting cancelled. The lady who was getting baptized sons and husband got the chicken pox! :$ So we didn’t get to go to that.
Sunday: We ate dinner with a family that is from Argentina, and I tried something they call mate (it’s not pronounced like mate). It’s a type of tea, which I guess it has been approved so it’s not against the Word of Wisdom. Anyway, it was really weird. It tasted really herb-y, and I didn’t really love it that much. But it was a good experience I guess. Now I can say that I’ve tried mate.
Monday: The elders bikes got stolen…so they were kind of upset about that. We ended up going to the mall yesterday, because we didn’t have anything else going on. Well basically we went to the mall and spent all our time in Barnes and Noble. I love that place. I truly forgot how much I love just spending time in that store and looking at the books and stuff. It was fun. We also went to the Goodwill, because someone told us that it was supposed to be 50% off everything, but it really wasn’t so Sister M. didn’t buy anything. But it was still fun to look. 🙂
Oh, also some other random chismes (gossip)…Sister W., who just went home 3 weeks ago is engaged and she is getting married the 1st of September. Like 2 weeks before I come home!!! She is crazy! I’m not going to get married that fast. Just so you don’t fret and worry, Mom! 🙂 🙂
Mom: That sounds like a great talk. I’ve been wanting more and more to learn about the Bible and to have time te read it, but our schedule for how President S. wants us to study in the morning only allows us to study Preach My Gospel and the Book of Mormon. So I’ll just have to read and study the Bible after I come home. But it is fascinating to me now. I also think I will take some institute classes to learn some more stuff about it. 🙂
Dad: I love that it is a family tradition to go eat at Costa Vida after graduations now. 🙂 We did that after Alex’s graduation too (without him :)). Okay wait who is Al Foxx? Ha ha. I’m not gonna lie, that story of Riley telling Mom she is a kind and loving mother is so funny to me. I can just imagine that little stink of a brother I have saying it, and it just makes me laugh. Even though it is kind of sad.
Emily: Things are good. I’m glad you got your card. I forgot to send it on p-day, but I sent it the day after. That doesn’t sound like a fun job to me. I really like my sleep. 🙂 But anway that is cool. Did you win any prizes at the graduation party? When I went, I won a $25 Walmart gift card, which was pretty cool. But other people won like iPods and Xbox 360s and other cool stuff, so it wasn’t really that great of a prize. But still. It also stormed here last night. It kept me awake for a while because the lightning and thunder were so bad, but I love the Texas rain here. When it rains, it RAINS!!
Well, I better go now. I love you all lots. Be good, and stay safe. 🙂
