A Good Week

Hey there family! Sorry about last weeks letter! Had to keep it short, but this is how THIS week went! (:
This is us today, don't I look tired?!
Tuesday, we visited with our investigator, Heather. Her and her husband both committed themselves to read the Book of Mormon AND come to church! We were so thrilled! People know what they need to just getting them to do it haha!
Wednesday we had Zone Training and that literally took ALLLLL day. The Assistants picked us up for some reason, we had training IN Pittsburgh and it took over an hour to get home. So we got home around 5 and had to go to our Book of Mormon class (that's STILL struggling to gain members).

Thursday, we headed down to the mission office to realign our area boundaries (we snagged some of the Elders area) and then we came home and studied some. The Ensign is amazing. I wish I had read it more. There is some pretty important stuff in there haha! After dinner, we went to contact a Less Active with the Elders, but when he wasn't home, we went to visit a recent convert with them. They are starting to play a little nicer haha!

Friday was weekly planning. And it took all day. haha! Not much to say about that...d:

Sister Stocking eating some s'mores we made.
 Saturday we spent all day painting a ward member's house. Like ALLL day. There was a member there helping out, named Amanda and her daughter Lexie. Elder Davidson was helping us paint and started making conversation. He was asking about our favorite scriptures and stuff and Amanda starts making faces at me. Like raising her eye brows and jerking her head towards him...saying "hey you think he's cute??" Ummmmm I'm on a mission so no. haha! But the best part was on Thursday he told us about his plans to propose to his girlfriend 2 WEEKS after he gets no. Nothing happening there hahahah! Silly members. So we finished painting the ceilings and headed back to our apartment. As we walked in the door I got 2 letters AND a package!! :D I was SOOOO happy. Basically the highlight of our day right there. (: We spent the rest of the night making cookies for some less actives and ran to the store to get bags for them and they had a 2014 calendar. I couldn't help it. I got it. It is hiding now but it was just cool to see how funky time is. It seems so long but at the same time, I don't have that much left. It just shows me that I need to take advantage of every moment I have, no matter how hard because it will never be the same.

Sunday, church is pretty much like the best thing in the world. Just saying. Even though I was super tired, it was so good to be among members. We taught Faith again then came home for lunch, did our studies and delivered cookies to our less actives! Life is pretty good.

Thank you so much for everything you do! I love you a lot! (:
