Week 30: Sun Sun is Out!!!

Not my favorite picture but the sun is out.
Well good news, the sun it out! It hasn't rained much this last week so we were able to walk!! It is such a blessing to be able to have a car, but those moments we are able to walk and soak up the sun are the best. OH MR. SUN, SUN, MR. GOLDEN SUN, PLEASE SHINE DOWN ON ME. But I really can't lie; I love the rain a lot. So I am just going to be stuck in the middle.

Too much fun emailing
 Side note about Sister Jackson- I have a couple favorite smells in the world. First, the smells of a pot roast when you walk in the door after church. Second, the smell of rain. Third, freshly made salsa. Fourth, the smell of tires. Fifth, the smell of fresh cut grass. Everyone has been mowing their lawns and so sometimes we have to drive with our windows rolled down so we can smell the fresh cut grass and appreciate for a second some of those simple pleasures of life.

So this last week at the Food Bank was an eventful day! I mean every week something funny happens, but for some reason this last week everyone decided to be funny. Here in the State of Washington there are, well here in Lynnwood with in one of the school districts there are 26 different cultures. So knowing this, it is pretty easy to figure out that we are running into a lot of different cultures during the day. So at the food bank we do our best to communicate with everyone we come into contact with, but some of them would rather play Pictionary or something like that. I think my favorite experience at the Food Bank this week was there was this really cute old guy (or so we thought.haha). We were filling his bag with potatoes and we gave him the same amount that we give everyone else. But he wanted more and so he was doing a little dance looking thing for more potatoes and so we gave him a couple more and he continued to do the dance. I told him we couldn't give him more. As he was walking away he started to say, "In my Country...." then he was too far for us to be able to hear the rest. It was super funny though and I just wanted to laugh. Then there was a cute little Japanese lady that also wanted more potatoes as well. Sister Barletta said that couldn't give her more. So instead of walking away all mad she stuck her tongue out at Sister Barletta!!! HAHA I started to laugh so hard!  That one I couldn't help myself.

We had an encounter with this officer and now we are best friends.
Didn't have time for the Gospel but he did have time for a picture.
We got a New Investigator! Patty is so awesome!  She is so ready for the Gospel and she loves the Book of Mormon! I am so excited to see what Heavenly Father has in store for her! It is so crazy, if everyone would give the Book of Mormon a chance and really care and try to get something from it they would get the answers they were looking for. Some people would be surprised but who doesn't like surprises!
Good news, I am going to be a part of a play this week and next week. It is Joseph and his Technicolor Dream Coat. Show business is hard; I don't know how anyone does it. I leave and think I am going to go crazy. But some people are just meant to be in show business and I am not one of them. 

I love you all so much and hope that you have an amazing week and Birthday Month!!

Exchanges with Sister Barr! This is her first transfer
