What's up beautiful people 😊 how y'all doin??? Hope everyone's having a great Monday so far. Thanks for all the updates & for keeping me in the loop of things. Hope all is well back home. Well, this week was like a roller coaster. Ups & downs but hey, we persevered & hung in there & came out on top 👌🏽 last week Monday was super chill. Did the normal Pday stuff. Had a super chill jam session this time though during volleyball. That was fun! Brought back memories of the jam sessions back at home. I just love music!!!! We had a late dinner with the Growald bunch. Love them!!!! Monday and Tuesday we went to the food pantry. Now that we know our friends names, it's even more fun haha. Wednesday night, we went on exchanges with Mama Villarreal 😊 We went & visited Jason whom we haven't seen in like forever. It was super sad to hear him tell us that he'll be moving soon but we had such a great visit with him. Wednesday night, we went to young women & helped out with their family history project that theyʻre doing. We painted some super cool looking trees. It was fun cuz we got to meet & talk to some of the young women who like neve ome out. It was great!
Saturday was so different. I was really feeling discouraged & so when I said my morning prayer, I specifically asked that we would have a successful day & that those who need us will open their doors. Let me just say, the power of prayer is real. I know that as we express our concerns & truly ask the Lord for help, he will lead us to where we need to be & who need to see. We were able to visit Davonte's grandma since he wasn't home. We also got to visit a less active sister whom we've never met before that told us she'd be coming to church. We got to see sweet Sister Nunes whom we haven't seen in forever. We had dinner with our ward mission leader & his sweet family. We visited the Blackburn family & invited them to the "Freedom of Religion" event happening this weekend with Elder Oaks. We missed our sweet Twendele family but, we did get to visit with the Bridges family for a bit. One thing that I am constantly reminded of is, how much the Lord loves his children. It's the simple things. I am reminded of a quote by Elder Henry B. Eyring, "although his time is not always our time, we can be sure that the Lord keeps his promises." I testify that this is true cuz I've seen time & time again throughout my life & especially on my mission.
