Lovin' it!

We didn't do anything for Pioneer day this year. The whole idea of Pioneer day is foreign to most members except the ones around Utah. Although the youth of our branch did just get back from Trek on Saturday. It's fun to hear there stories about it since it's so different of a landscape then our trek. Their testimonies were super powerful as well. The branch president had them get up and share their testimonies during sacrament meeting. I've had lot's of fun in this branch. And I love these people. I believe I'll be here for a good while longer too. Like 4 months more probably. But only God knows. I've loved the work. It's been fun here. I don't want to make it sound like missionary work isn't hard, cause it is. But I think missionaries blow it a little out of proportion. Once I realized (or missionaries realize) that the hardest part is waking up at 6:30 and getting along with the other missionaries is the hardest part, the rest becomes a journey. The rest is enjoyable. Yeah you're working more than an 8 hour day, but it's the best work there is! A miracle this week was when we were finishing the last 30 minutes of our night handing out invitations to our ward talent show as well as english classes. We had a couple come up and ask us what church we represent. Turns out, her nieces are both members who just recently moved from Brazil and have been looking for the church here. The craziest part is that they live an hour away. But our area is huge, probably 5 miles east to west, but definitely over 90 miles North to south. So why in the world would that aunt and uncle that live an hour away as well be at the supermarket? No idea! The best part, the aunt and uncle and their children aren't members and neither is the mom of the two girls! So many potential explorers! Such a miracle! Some other funny stuff from this week. I was asked if I was real then followed by a nice pinch. Apparently I was the most beautiful thing she'd ever seen; hair, skin, eyes. Everything. The best part of this? She was definitely pushing 70. Always love getting hit on by the Elderly. Toooooo good. Had some good rain this week as well. Anyways, love you all and thanks for the love and support!
