Week 48: Crazy! Still No Time!

Elle Celebrating her 20th birthday

This last week has been full of so many different things. We said goodbye to President and Sister Bonham and have been able to welcome President and Sister Wilding. I was a little apprehensive at first and was worried about getting a new Mission President half way through my mission. It was been such a good thing so far. We had the Rolling Conference for the Bonham’s Wednesday and said goodbye and we were all sad.

Thursday Sister Leininger and I got to meet Sister Wilding, she came out and worked with us on her fist night here. I felt so honored and was grateful that I had the chance to be one of the first people to meet her. She is so cute and is already an amazing missionary! She went and talked everyone that we saw and did so good in the lessons. I have a lot to learn from her.

On Friday and Saturday the Wildings went around the entire mission meeting all of the missionaries by zone. The Lynnwood Zone was on Saturday, our last one and it was amazing. I am so grateful that I am going to have the chance to be able to learn from two Mission Presidents and to be able to apply the things that they teach me.

Elle and Sister Deaver

Tuesday we had exchanges and I got to spend the time with Sister Deaver. She is a very good missionary and it is hard to be able to get her to open up and have a good conversation sometimes and so we just had fun and we were able to go and help her investigator Roberta (the one who wants my hair) with her garden. The Elders came and helped and that was awesome!

I had an awesome Birthday and am so grateful for my Companion, the Members, President and Sister Wilding (who called me and sang happy birthday) and for my family. Everyone made it the best day ever and there were so many good surprises. For the last 11 months I have been thinking about everyone but myself and it was so weird for a couple of hours for it to be about me....I don't know how I feel about that. But it was truly a Birthday that I am never going to forget and might have been the best Birthday that I have had.

Happy Birthday Elle

Sunday was a nice surprise, Diana our investigator came to church and she was only able to stay for sacrament meeting but she loved it. She has seizures and she was starting to get the symptoms and so she had to leave and ended up going to the clinic. Luckily that didn't scare her away and she is planning on bringing her entire family next week.

Camy our other investigator is so amazing we had a miracle. We went to her house looking for her and she wasn't home so we thought we would go and try this other person that we have wanted to get a hold of and there was Camy, sitting on her couch! It was the weirdest thing in the world. We were able to teach her the first lesson, she wants to know more about the Book of Mormon and her purpose and life and what she is supposed to do. She has even had some Anti thrown at her and she told them they were wrong and that they should come listen with her so that they can get their facts right. She is amazing and I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to meet her.

Elle and Roberts

The 4th was awesome we went to Buffalo Wild Wings, Bowling and the Mall and then wrote letters in our Moomoos! What more could you ask for! I love Lynnwood so much and don't want to be anywhere else!

I love you all and hope that you have a great week!--
