I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!
It's not always the easiest or the most fun. We're
not always smiling and happy but......IT IS SO WORTH IT!
Here are some highlights from the week:
We played volleyball last pday and it rocked! I love it and miss playing sports a lot. Luckily, the missionaries here like to play :)
Tuesday night Karen and John had us over for dinner. Now I'm not sure if I've said this before but they are big fishers. Like, they are OBSESSED with fishing and eating it and all things fish. So they had us over for a Fish Fry and boy was it good. I've never really been a big fish fan but this was delicious! We had such a great time getting to know John more. We shared our stories of why we came on a mission with them and it was fun to hear their reactions.
Us 4 Kearney sisters sang at zone conference. I played guitar (borrowed from Brother Price) and we sang "Did you think to pray?" it was so much fun and I love singing with these sisters.
A less-active family showed up to church last week and we met with them on Wednesday. They have a 9 year old daughter who hasn't been baptized but wants to so we are going to start teaching her :) Yay!
Jose (la member) invited his friend over for a lesson we were going to teach him. She became a new investigator and we are beginning to teach her. She knows and believes a lot of the same things we do :)
Saturday was the pioneer day activity and we got to sing and play dressed as pioneers :) iT was a grand old time. Then Sister Smith and I went to the Robinson's farm to help them in their garden. Their cousin from Denmark is there for a year and so we got to know her better and she helped us shovel manure. She taught us some Danish...strange language that one is. We had so much fun all laughing and shoveling..... :)
Our favorite visitor from England! She demanded we sing songs about flowers and then did a ballet dance for us :)
Oh...and KAREN CAME TO CHRUCH FOR THE FIRST TIME :) This is a big step!
El Sker Dig (pronounced: el skeh di Means I love you in Danish)
