I was thinking when i come home next summer...its summer time which means my tans lines are going to be at their peak!! AH MAN!! haha i knew you would laugh at my feet!! its awful!! But i love it...the scars of a missionary!! haha...or maybe just me!
Dont you worry i will keep the photos coming!! remember muhumma i have an IPAD now so at lunch...SELFIE TIME!! hahaha!!!! But photos are important so you guys make sure you keep the photos coming this way aswell please!! MERCI!!!
I heard about the conference!! I am soo jealous!! Elder Holland is one of favourites to listen to. SO much power!! and oh man that must of been incredible. because his testimony of the book of mormon is like no other!!
ahhh your week sounds so great...are you ready for my week?! oh i know you are..here we go....
ok FIRSTLY you might want to get your popcorn ready for this horror story!! You might want to delete it out of the large email because its a little weird...but i have to tell you because i would tell you if it happened at home.....so we were all saying our night prayers in the dark and as i was praying in my ear came a loud deep breath, it was very loud. and i jumped and stopped praying. and at first i thought it was sister camus playing a trick on me, coming to scare me. So i quickly turned on the light and said ``you cannot do that to me!`` and she was still on her bed and she said to me ``it wasnt me, but i heard it to!`` we both heard the same noise, yet for her it seemed close but in my direction, but for me it was right in my ear!! We freaked out as you can imagine. And we had this horrible feeling. We couldnt sleep so we sang ALOT of hymns until we feell asleep. We slept with the light on the hwole night!! haha!! But we still had this horrible feeling about the apartment. So the next day the elders got permission to bless our apartment again. And now it is absolutely fine....NOW you know me and horror do NOT GO WELL. so i havent been sleeping very well lately but its getting better!! But i have never ever experienced anything like it or felt anything like that. It definately was not a very nice thing to experience but i have heard of these things happening to missionaries but you never think they actually happen. But there you go...there my little horror story for you all this week!! haha!! anyway...
SO we actually had the most amazing thing happen this week. TRULY A MIRACLE. one of our ami`s who has been being taught for over two years. Has set a date for her baptism!!!!! it went like this...we asked her ``how can we help you feel prepared to be baptised?``(because she has a testimony of everything!!) and she replied ``i am prepared now, last week i made the decision with my husband that i am ready for baptism!!!`` so we have set a date!!! YOU SHOULD OF SEEN OUR FACES!!! hahaha!! we were not expecting that!! truly a miracle!! i am sooooo excited!!!
On wednesday we had a zone finding day! and i went on an exchange with sister Kehl! she is incredible. literally whenever she contacts or speaks to anyone she has a constant glow on her face, its so incredible. and we had alot of miracles that day. But first MIRACLE:
we planned to got to their aprtment for lunch, we get to he apartment and she hasnt got the keys, so then we make a new plan to go to our apartment (which is close) for lunch because i have the keys...on the way to our apartment we contact a man, who we find out has family members who are members of the church, he has been to the church before in argentina, and he has even been to a baptism before in argentina, he wanted us to give him a book of mormon in spainish. so we went to our apartment then went back and gave it to him!!! TRULY ANOTHER MIRACLE!! if we had not forgotten the keys we may not have met him! and now he is being taught by the sisters in that area!! how amazing is that. again, i know i have said it before. but heavenly father is preparing these people!! i know it!!
SO ON THURSDAY!! another miracle....but a personal miracle!!! I TAUGHT A LESSON ON THE BUS ON MY OWN IN FRENCH!!! a man just sat next to me, started talking as you do, then it got onto being a missionary what we teach etc, i taught him the restoration and gave him a book of mormon!! i came off the bus and realised i had just taught ALONE in FRENCH!!!! so that was a personal miracle. and i know heavenly father was sitting right with me!! So that was cool!
SO HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR...TRANSFER CALL--- DRUM ROLL PLEASE....I AM staying in LAUSANNE!! WOOOO!!! AND we are satying as a trio for another transfer!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! i am soo happy you dont even know!! But we kill sister camus this transfer as it is her last...i am killing all my companions....except sister wilsher. me and her are together until the end!! haha!!
ALSO GUESS WHO IS COMING TO OUR ZONE.....THE ONE AND ONLY ELDER SPOORS!!!! so at zone training and district meetings i will see elder spoors!! WOOOOOOO!!!
ANOTHER MIRACLE...through service!! as a companionship we have been looking to serve others more...because we know they just through looking for ways to serve people is teaching the ways of the gospel. So we are at the metro stop and we see an older lady...not too old...around 55. But she has her hands full. a dog in one hand, bag of shopping, a pull along full of shopping and a large piece of cardboard. So we go to help and we help her on the metro and off the metro at her stop. And then we all see that there is no way she is going to make it home with all of that by herself. But we had already asked and she had said it shoul be fine. But we asked again and she said ``only if you have the time`` so we did!! i took the dog, mwahaha of course i did! and we all helped her to her house. And upt he stairs to her apartment. Then she let us in and we fin out she is a crazy cat lady!! haha JUST KIDDING she has like 7 cats but she isnt crazy!!...ANYWAY...we end up teaching her about the book of mormon and given her a copy! and we are seeing her again next week....MIRACLE!!
The weather is sooo random here. sweating like a pig in the day then at night there has been some HUGE lightning storms. i took a video that ill try to send!! but its crazy....i want scared of the storms at all...... haha!!
FUNNY MOMENT OF THE WEEK...here we go... so we are contacting in this beautiful park called l`hermitage (reminded me of highlands park really) and we contact this man with a little toddler who is about 2 years old. And we are having a really great conversation about jesus christ and how it has blessed his life etc and then we hear this HUGE fart!!!!!!!! (sorry grandma i know you hate that word!!) HAHAHA COME FROM THE BABY! IT WAS HUGE!! and we just could not keep it together, it was ok because the man was laughing to...but im sure you can imagine me...i was crying and i couldnt continue!!!! HAHAHA FUNNY MOMENT FOR YOU!!!
`my brothers and sisters, is the gospel still wonderful to you? can you still see, hear and feel it? or have your spiritual senses gone into standby mode?``
he invited us to. 1. never ever tire of discovering...there is always something new to discover or rediscover. 2. anchor your faith in the simple truths of the gospel. 3. and seek and ask to have the holy ghost with you always.
i loved this. On my mission the gospel really has become even more wonderful to me than it already was before. I am always going to ask myself and i invite you to also to ask ``is the gospel still wonderful to me?``
also i read the ``music of the gospel`` talk about learning to hear the music of the gospel!! from last conference. ONE OF MY FAVOURITES and it emphasis on how we should help our children not just learn the dance steps of the gospel but to teach them how to hear the music!! and it made me think of how blessed i am to of been raised and taught how to hear the music of the gospel. And the music of the gospel was always in our home, growing up! so thank you!!
family, i love you incredibly. you are so important to me!! I am soooooo happy!!! and feel so blessed to have you supporting me every step of the way!!
422 days?? is that it!!!!!!!....yeah and whos counting muhumma....haha!!!
OH I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
THANK YOU FOR THE STRENGTH YOU GIVE ME!!
HAVE ANOTHER INCREDIBLE WEEK!!!
p.s: today in the park. You know those people who dress up to get money etc. well he came over and was joking around. and then took sister wilsher and was dragging her away as if to kidnap her (as a joke) and she was trying to pull away and then he came and was trying to kiss us (like a cheek kiss) and we were like NOOOOOOOO...he got so close to sister camus and we were fioghting him back!! hahahha it was a little scary but hilarious!!!!!!
