hola mi familia como estan.. estoy muy bien gracias.. here goes some fun info and stories from the week!!...
i had this dream last week and i knew we needed to see this family but i'd never met them cause they go to a diff ward even though they live in our ward bounderies (a few famililes do that) so we were biking to this families house and turns out they werent home BUT we met some other super duper cool people and families that i believe is why the Lord told us to go there. He always works in mysterious ways and sometimes I wish they were just normal! but it keeps life fun. it is raining right now and we are almost out of miles so we had to ride bikes here in the rain.. talk about a fun pday..ok so we met this girl the other day and the first thing out of her mouth was "tell me what you blelive!" so we told her a little and she is very religious and invited us to a "HOP" (House of Peace) but i didnt know what that was... she described it and it sounded good.. so i told her we'd go. well later i tell the elders and they say NO! you cant go! it's like a family home evening but on steriods and gone wrong.. so i learned from that do not go to a HOP if anyone invites you. then we were riding bikes one day and i met this boy alex, he's young like 16 or 17 and was running so i just started riding my bike next to him on the sidewalk and we just went for like 1.5 miles talking haha it was awesome and i taught him a lesson on baptism and he wants to be baptized BUT now he's only texting us and wont give us his address or meet up with him so not sure where it'll go but he's super cool. then we were goign to this lady estella's house (the one that told me i was expecting) and the house # she gave us was really a school so we turned around and riding back down the street we saw her and even though she said she wasn't interested.. it was neat that we saw her anyway! we are giving away sooo many pass along cards every day its ridiculous but at least we have gotten a few media requests for Book of Mormons (that is my #1 fave PAC to give away. it usually the only one i carry) . the homestead ward is famous this month! we are in the friend magazine for april! check us out! but the pic is kind of old.. but seriously. we're famous. i learned to make a deliciuos food called arrepeas this week, it was kind of hard for me at first but then i got better when i realized i was doing it wrong. they are from venezula. i am getting a tan line on my face from my helmet.. and the other day someone asked me if i was wearing foundation.. hahahah.. we have a lesson tonight with a really cool kid named marquis and when we met him he told us he'd never been baptized and he said the words "i'm ready" - i hope he is one of my choice associates i knew before this life.. he's 19 and really cool! i loved my package of making my own luck and especially the tape.. a big big thank you to everyone... and especailly i cant believe how much and how well owen talks, like i still dont even picture him talking! Elder Gibbons of the Seventy came to our mission this past week and it was great to learn from him and be with him and his wife. They are good friends of the Wickmans. I also realized something i've known all along but never thought much about it, but what a loving couple President and Sister Hale are and how -one day- i want me and my husband to be just like them........ but thats not gonna happen for awhile. after the incredible conference it was sad cause we had to give drop talks to 2 of our investigators, carlos and also brenda and grayland. they just weren't progressing! and brenda was our only bap date, so now we have 0! BUT yesterday for invitation sunday we had 16 non members at church so hopefully we'll get to start teaching the people members brought! it was the craziest sunday maybe .. well every sunday is so crazy .. but there were sooo many people. everyone is starting to get these pets called sugar gliders they are so stinkin cute and i kind of want one.. this man told us that because we are baptized that means are baptist and we are not christan he was so nuts.. i tried a new food called conch fritters and this conch salad it was shell fish and so interesting but not too bad.. do they even have that in utah? i'd never heard of it. i went up this bus stop full of people the other day and just started talking really loudly telling them allll about the Book of Mormon. i know we are supposed to flood the earth with it... well the best i'm doing is flooding homstead north but i felt like a king benjamin and it felt gooood and i guess i am not braver than i ever was before! and love it! the last person i have time to tell you is alfredo.. we met him he was walking down US 1 ( i would compare it to wasatch blvd but lots busier) and we were biking. he needed like $3.80 to buy a can to put gas in, and he was dresssed nice except that purple heart necklace on the rainbow string) but he wasnt a bum.. so we gave him a 5 and he offered us a lot of his material things but we said no we just want you address and # and so we went to his house yesterday there was lots of cars there... turns out it was a family reunion party but he was so surprised we went he started crying and saying all this weird stuff... i'm not sure what to think of him just yet but we have a return appt for wed.. hope you are all happy and well and now it stopped raining so we're going to ride our bikes home love youuuu bye
