Week 32: What Day is it?

Sister Barletta and Elle soaking wet, helping at the food bank.

So I continue to mix up my days. Saturday I thought it was Wednesday and I guess hadn't realized that a couple days have passed. Time in the mission is so much different from anything I think I have ever experienced! Which is a good and bad thing but when I figure out how to tell "time in the mission" I will let everyone know. This week has been a really nice week. We only had one really bad rain and wind storm that knocked out the power. Luckily our apartment was safe, so therefore everyone is going to be safe and have power. Actually this was not the case. We were leaving to an appointment and most of the street lights on 164th decided they were going to stop working. So traffic was backed up so bad but that’s okay, well not really but there is no point in getting frustrated over something so simple. 

We had an awesome week this week! Transfers were on Tuesday and so all of the new Missionaries got to come in and everyone who was switching companions. Sister Barletta and I are still together so we didn't have to worry about transfers. At Zone Meeting the next day our Zone almost doubled! It was super crazy! Some areas were split in two and they also decided to mix the Spanish Missionaries with the English ones. I don't know how it is going to work but I am willing to try anything. So it is nice we only lost two missionaries. Hermana Clark is in my district. I am way excited, she is a very good missionary and so I am excited to get to learn from her. 

Typical rainy day in Washington.
Wednesday we had a normal rain storm which had me soaked from head to toe. The work doesn't stop just because of rain so we were able to go and actually find Sherri! We are super excited to start teaching her. She was in a coma for a couple of months because of a heart attack. She returned back home for Christmas. We talked to her husband, he isn't interested. However Sherri said if she comes to know that it is all true she is going to be baptized! If we do our job right and invite the spirit and she uses her agency right everything is going to be just fine! 

Saturday was the last day of the Play. I think I was ready for it to be over. We spent all day Saturday there and well we knew all of the things that were going to happen. Sister Jackson was not meant to be a part of drama. It was cool because we got to talk to a lot of different people and share some little bits of the Gospel with them. It will be nice to get back to normal missionary work!

Sunday, Sundays are not relaxing days, but this is okay because I love being super busy. We got invited to go and have dinner with President and Sister Bonham. One of the Sisters we are STL's (Sister Training Leaders) over is having a really hard time, she got here on Tuesday. So they had invited them over and didn't want it to be awkward so we were invited. I'll take that as they like us the most... HAHA

I am super excited to see what this week has in-store for us! I love you all and hope you have an amazing week! I hope the Cultural Celebration goes well! Oh, and Happy 12th Birthday to Nick! I am super excited you are going to be getting the priesthood! Keep doing what Heavenly Father needs you to do and you will be the happiest person I know! 

This is Pastor Gary...He is super cool!
 We get to spend a couple hours with him on 
Wednesdays at the food bank.
