#birthdaypresent (Week #30)

This week was super busy...We did tons of service. We replaced water heaters and cleaned air conditioners and even worked on a float for a parade! It's been crazy. But great! People are really appreciative!

What has been your biggest challenge this week?
Finding new people. Scratch that. We can find people we just can't get them to act. They'll listen but they won't come to church or pray or anything. Super dumb. But they're really nice people!

What has been your biggest concern?
Miles. We only have a certain amount for the month and we're getting to the end. So it's tight. But we still have enough.

What has been your biggest success?
Jo is getting baptized!!!! Heck yeah!! Her boyfriend is now working elsewhere and is paying her rent but isn't living there. So we talked to the bishop and she's getting baptized!! #birthdaypresent

Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?
Sister T and P. They're the new sisters in our district and they're really cool. Having new people in the ward makes things different.

What has been your most significant tender mercy?
We've been biking to save miles and the members really try to help us out if they can. Well most of them haha

What are you looking forward to this coming week?
General conference! Getting 3 new apostles is crazy and I'm excited to hear what they talk about. We're going to watch them at A's house.

Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.
Get people to act. We can't really do a whole lot if they don't do anything.

Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?
I've been reading a lot in Jesus the Christ. Read about how when the Roman soldier stabs Him in the side, water and blood comes out. And i was like "why the heck is there water?" but in the book it talks about how that effect happens during a cardiac rupture. Literally a broken heart. So when God forsakes him, his heart broke. Trippy stuff.

I completely filled out my journal now.

Love you guys!
The computer isn't letting me send pictures.... sorry
