week o miracles

omg you guys this week was just the best and the busiest and i loved it to pieces! on tuesday we had this new missionary training meeting that we had to go to so that was fun to see the other newbies. i think im doing a dece job of training but the other trainers said i need to let her crash and burn a little too nice and fun and cute for that. then we got a leak in our tire so  we had to go the the shop after that. that night we had a great lesson with the corbetts about the plan of salvation. i dont know how much i told you about these people but they are a less acitive family with 4 unbaptized children. the elders were teaching them but we kinda stole them. they were mad but oh well. so anyways we teach them this great lesson and have a great dinner after and we invited them to church and the mom was really hesitant but we promised her that we would be by her side the whole time! she committed. then that night we went to a recent converts house and her daughter he is not baptized committed to baptism. another miracle! it was a great day. on wednesday we had district meeting and i had to give a training. but like im not even nervous or anything about that stuff. the mission is preparering me big time for being a teacher. we had tbell for luch. way tight. that night was our district leaders birthday. so we share the ward with him and some members took us to the funnest palce in all of tucson. it was like a wester resturaunt and they whole place was so cute. they dont allow ties there so they cut off peoples ties and hang em on the walls. lol the elders were way embarrassed bout that. it was so fun! then on thursday we had another great lesson with the oversons about obedience and scheduled a church tour. on friday we were told that we were getting a newer car! yipeeeee. so we hadda go to the mission office and get it. that took forever, but we finally got it. our day was basically done by the time we got home. saturday was a great day too. we saw some less active recent converts and committed them to church. they said they need it back in their life. then we had a church tour with the oversons and they loved it. sis overson said she feels peaceful whenever we are around. lol thank you spirit!!! i love that guy. so things are going great with them. also some members are outta town for a month and we are feeding their horses. im like a farm girl right now you guys its hilar. freaking ponies. on sunday the corbetts came to church!!! everyone was so suprised because they said they never come. they never came when the elders were teaching them so HA! lol jk humble. it was so great though. all in all this week was bomb!!!! thank you for the prayers that are comin my way. the lords work is truly hastening in vail. its great. so this is the last week of transfers so ill email next tuesday. also, if you guys know anyone in the tucson area that would love a visit from some fun missionaries, email me! think of the blessing the gosple brings, we want this for everyone right?! i luv you. first one to send me a letter gets a way fun arizona postcard!

We went tracting for like an hour. nothing. then we tried to see like 15 people and no one was home or they couldnt meet. from 1-5 nothing! i hated it!!!! but then we had dinner at our investigators house (oversons) and they showed us their animals and tree house and we had enchiladas. they are soooo golden...we just have to get them to church!!!  then we went back down the dirt road to the people we were supposed to visit on tuesday. we made it guys! on friday,after weekly planning we had a great day. we had so many appointments that we had to skip dinner! i love days like that. suprisingly almost everyone we are consitantly teaching are kids and i am just fine with that. then saturday was a great day too!!! loved it. we met with some great members....i love old people, and some less actives actually let us into their house! i love the idea of the rescue. everyone needs to remember the covenants they made at baptism. then saturday afternoon we got a call from one of the bishopric asking us to give a talk on sunday -_______- typical men lol jk. so on sunday we gave a talk on "you can do it now" a talk given by pres uchtdork in oct gen conference. i think i did pretty good. then we had church for 9 hours. lol. now onto the title. i never realized how much i talk. like so much. all the time. and its rediculous. i dont let sis stuart get a word in. and we talked about it and she said its good for her.

Seahawks represent!

yay seahawks!!! good for them....even though i only saw .2 seconds of the game. im glad they won...i literally just spelt won like one. im getting so retarted. need byu. so this week was better. on monday the whole zone got together and played bball. it was so fun. our zone is so little but we are like united! its great. then we went back out trying to see families and at first we had no luck for like 30 minutes and i was like "suck! what the crap!" and then we finally got in a less active part member family and gave them a great lesson about trials and faith. it is so good when you get to teach! i love it. then on tuesday we didnt have such a great day but we we got to go to mutual which was so fun. there were these two girls in the corner just laughing and being fun and it reminded me of me and brooklyn in yw. always so disruptive. sorry to all the yw leaders who hated me. on wednesday we had district meeting but we were late because a text got sent out to everyone that it would be an half hour earlier BUT since we live in the middle of the moutains. no text for us! weeeeeeeeeeee! thats seriously so annoying. but despite that we actually had a good day and met with some less acitves and got some new investigators. they were being taught before and we picked them up again. they are a part member family and i think they will be pretty solid. ill keep you updated with them. on thursday we spent most of our day looking at part member families and unbaptized 9 year old children. suprisingly we got into a lot  of homes but were not interested in getting taught. its okay though. we left them with the spirit and thats all we can do. omg and then we met with this autistic 16 year old girl. shes so great and im looking forward to working with her. she thinks shes a vampire and im like GREAT, set me up with edward and we will work perf together. it will be so fun. i love twilight. we got 6 lessons that day!!! fun. then on friday we went over to see some recent converts to teach them how to FHE. they are such a cute family and the little boy is soooo sassy. hes 3 and he scares me. ps....everyone out here loves horses and im just like horses -______________-. im not a horse a purdy person! i LOVE PURDY! saturday was the funnest. after seeing a couple of people we went over a members house because they were having a party for the new missionaries in the ward. we had a bonfire with hot dog roasting and smores. SO FUN!!! i loved it. that is the perk of being out in the sticks! then sunday was 9 hours at church. GRANDMA AND GRANDPA CAME! It was fun to see them and sit with them. kinda wierd. but i loved it. grandma was so excited and grandpa tried to hug me and i was like LOL AHHHHHHH! hahah but it was good. then we went over to a familys house for dinner and they were watching the super bowl and it was 22-0 seahawks. i just came in chanting "SEAHAWKS SEAHAWKS" lol i dont even like foootball. i felt bad for barging in on their party but like missionaries are fun too and we all knew that seattle would win! any ways i hope this week is successful. thanks for all the love and support! have a great week!!!
