Week 36: Grateful to Wear The Tag!

Sisters Dalley, Barletta, Elle, and Shattuck

I can honestly say that I love, love, love the sun shine! Now the heat, if this is something that has to come with the sun I guess I can get over it- but....oh I love the sun. 

This week was so crazy busy! We had two exchanges and then Mission Leader Counsel on Thursday. So Sister Barletta and I were only in the area together for a couple of days.  Even though we were only in our area for a couple of days miracles happened! Miracles always happen, but the thing is...it has been a long time coming! 

First off Patty is on date!!! Happy day! It is for June 4th and I am so excited! She said she is either going to be all in or not at all. Well, she is all in! So now we get to keep working with her. The cool thing with her is she is really doing this for herself and for no one else. She started to learn from the missionaries a little over a year ago and has been reading the Book of Mormon consistently and really is searching for an answer! I have a front row seat to being able to watch people come to know the truth for themselves and make the decision to come unto their Father in Heaven and follow our Savior Jesus Christ! I am one lucky girl, well missionary; but you get the point.

Then our Recent Convert just got engaged to someone who doesn't believe in Mormons and will not talk to us. But that's a long story in and of its self. I congratulated him and so the wedding will be in five years.

Exchanges were so much fun! I love getting to go and learn from other Sisters and figure out ways that I can become a better missionary! It is da-best! I got to go with Hermana Richey; she is in training right now but is so smart! She knows her stuff.  It is too bad we don't like to Bible bash because she would be good at it. But that is beside the point. I don't speak Spanish and so she was on her own pretty much most of the time. She had so much fun and came away from it knowing she was a good missionary! SUCCESS!! 

We then had Mission Leader Counsel which makes for a long day, a six and a half hour meeting. I know, I know, you are all so jealous of me because you didn't get to join in. Well that is okay you don't need to be. 

Then Exchanges with Sister Washburn!!! I love that Sister So much! It is first off nice to be with someone who is the same height! Selfish wish, I don't think so. I am really not that tall but it is hard to find someone I don't have to look down to. I got to spend the day in Everett! The sun was out and so we walked everywhere, well when it wasn't 6 miles away but it was so nice. Everyone one was outside enjoying the sun because their spring break had started. So there were a lot of people to talk to.

I don't know how I got so lucky to get to serve a mission but I did! I love it so much out here in Washington and am grateful every day that I am able to put my name tag on and be a representative of Jesus Christ. I have the chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the greatest missionaries that have ever lived! I love you all so much and hope you have an amazing week!

Elder Autuia, I don't know how to spell his name! He is so stinken awesome!
 So sad that he will be going home in a few weeks

Elder Gonzalez. He was my zone leader when I got to Lake Stevens.
 Then we got transfered to Lynnwood together for a transfer and he was 
my District Leader But this transfer he was moved to Sonohomish 
to be the zone leader there. almost spent half of my mission with this elder!
