Dear family and friends,
When it rains it pours! so for the first time in months it is raining! coming out of our apartment we had to walk through the ankle deep puddles on tippy toes to keep from getting soaked I always love when it rains here because it smells way better after it rains and there is way less smog. anyways, this last week was an okay one. it has been lots of work with okay results. We did have a really really good lesson at the visitors center though with a few investigators and they loved it. We have really set the stage with them and i know that they knows the things we teach are true. she is just having a little trouble getting the commitment level she needs to act on all of them.
Elder Stinson had his birthday this week and both of the two active families threw him a little party. if you all didn't know it is a custom to take a bite out of the cake on your birthday haha, i will add some pictures to demonstrate but lets just say you might get some icing in your nose. i think the people we do get to visit often here are amazing and i am super grateful for them.
So, this week we will be going on splits so it should be a nice change of atmosphere. it will be nice to see a new area and see how the work is going in other parts of the ward. I was thinking about it and it will be my last splits i have to go on! besides my companion next transfer I'm done.
I cant wait for mothers day! we already found a family who would let us skype at their house. I will be using my own address but i was thinking... because skype is going to be really busy on mothers day download facetime in case it doesn't work well and i will get on that way. plan on some time at like 4 or later.
Well, i love you all, and if you happen to be at my house when i call *cough cough* i might get to say hi to you! That means you brogan haha.
anyways, i will talk to you Sunday! Love you all lots!
