Mission Scripture

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come.

D&C 68:6

8 Baptismal Dates, 8 at church, and 1 Wedding

this has been SUCH a busy . i cant even begin to say how much we have going on. i want to tell you about each of my investigators but i dont have enough time i'm sorry, if you go in my sent mail on my gmail you can read my letter to president i dont mind. i told him about all of them. in it. thanks for sending the package with marsha. i havent seen them yet we've bene too busy and they went to an english ward yesterday so i wasn't able to see them at church. we have a baptism on saturday and the rest are all set for wednesdays and the wedding is on june 20 at the church. i want to tell you all about everything but i cant! here goes real quick... we found out we have a bunch of mormons who live in our complex. they give us rides places and bring us food sometimes. last week a couple dropped us off at the grocery store but a HUGGGEE rainstorm came when we were shopping and we had to call some poeple to pick us up. we taught this fam for awhile they had a dog like dash and it always lays on my feet when we went there haha i thought it was so funny but they called us on sat and asked us not to come over anymore which is fine because we are so busy and they were out of the way kind of. this week is zone conf and sis keller and i have to speak at it on our baptismal invites.. i'm neverous and excited. we talk to people from india sometimes but they cant touch anything holy until they have their bath that day. isnt that weird. not even our pass along card. there are ZERO stars here in florida. that makes me kind of sad. an asl sister that lives with us Sister Magnussen got a sickness this week called hand foot and mouth. i cant descibe it now but its contagious but luckily she's getting better and none of us got it. sorry the pics didn't work, maybe i'll develop some this week and send them home. we have this recent convert (RC) francisco and he just taught his dog to use binkys to make them be quiet.. haha its the funnies thing in the world. maybe we should get another puppy and teach them? i'm sure owen wouldn;t mind sharing. i am so in love with orchata now its the yummiest thing ever. i will buy some and mail it to you. i got a million new mosquito bites we are stocking up on bug spray today cause its the 1 of the month we have more money!! the other day we were teaching an invest Pablo with an RC Adrian we have to teach outside cause we cant go in the houses unless a woman is there. and i kept getting bit and Adrian thought it was funny cause he never got bit and then he smashed a mosquito and it was full of blood and he keeps telling me that it is my blood-but it probably was ew it was gross. we taught these 2 people that speak english and spanish the other day they are 21 and 32 so we decided to teach in english and anyways long story short they were SOO rude and said the meanest things to us we both cried that night it was so hard. that was when i decided i'm glad we teach latinos cause they are nicer. i have a respect for the english program. i went tanning..we have a free tanning bed at our complex..and parts of me that never see the sun got soo burned serves me right i guess. you think florida sounds nice and hot, well its not all it does is rain here. it hasnt been hot at all. we keep having to teach the law of chastity and it is so awkward and people always laugh. i wish we could teach it normal without getting laughed at! during a lesson the other day i didn't know what to say so hermana keller was whispering in my ear then i would repeat it it was so funny it was like giving a primary talk or something. on friday we did exchanges cause h keller had to go to a meeting and i was with sister green...who is now in hialeah with h fiala and she told me that the sunday after i left they had a baptism and 2 of the invest i was teaching when i left got baptized! i was so happy but sad i missed it. we have been eating at mcdonalds every day cause a member forgot to make us dinner so she bought us a $25 Mc D card. on friday night we didnt get home til like 11:45 cause we were with the cops... ohh myy gosh.. longest night of my life. a guy backed into our car with his truck-on purpose- and left it parked like that. he did it cause we parked in front of his house which he didn't like. we got out of the lesson at 9:15 and found it so we called the zone leaders, AP's, Elder Dalling who does car stuff, and President. we had to end up calling the police and they were wayy cool and in our free time while we were waiting for a translator to come (the cops only spke EN and the guy only spke SP) we taught them and it was really coool!! i am kind of getting fat cause h keller is on a no sugar diet so i agreed to eat hers secretly when we go to peoples houses and they give us stuff. i am starting to drive this week cause h keller is kind of a crazy driver and gets us lost all the time even when i tell her to turn she forgets to and anwyyas... that should be fun. my friend in the mtc wrote me a letter and said this "a true sincere heart and some broken spanish is more than enough to get to the heart of the people and to get them to know how true the message we are preaching is true" so that is helping me hang in there with SP.
hope all is well at home, i love you and am so happy to hear from you. you are in my prayers-sending lots of loves
