Episode 77: The One where I'm Coming Home!

Hello everyone!

This week was just about the best way I could end my mission. First of all, an investigator that I worked with back in Soundview got baptized! Her name is Laura, and she is honestly one of the most solidly converted people I know. She had some things she had to work through before she got baptized, but she was so patient and faithful the whole time. Basically she's just amazing!

I also got to go to the temple, and that is always a good thing!

And after the temple, the Blatters took us to Cafe Rio, which is out of our mission, so I haven't had it in 18 months. It was great!

I can't think of anything else to say. I'm so happy I got to serve my mission, and I'm so happy I get to come home and continue on the path that I started on my mission.

See you in 2 days!

Episode 76: The One where It's All a Blur

Hello everyone! This week flew by, and to be honest, I don't remember what happened very well. But, I remember that it was good!

The good news is that we found 3 new investigators, and they all came to church! 

I also found an excellent quote this week. 

"Yes, men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace. " —Ezra Taft Benson

And now, pictures!

Sister Zapata found these giant moose slippers on someone's porch, so I made her try them on. Don't worry, we didn't take them!

Only in Washington would you see this in someone's front yard: A huge mossy tree and a woodpecker!

And of course, selfies in the rain!

That's all for this week. Stay tuned for the season ender next Monday!

Episode 75: The One with Linda S. Reeves!

Hello everyone!

This week, I got to meet a celebrity! Well, a church celebrity. Linda S. Reeves, the second councilor in the Relief Society general presidency, came and did a conference for all the women in the area. It was awesome! The title of the conference was "The Courage to Have Compassion". Sister Reeves showed this video:

I highly recommend taking the 10 minutes out of your day to watch it.

Sister Reeves also talked about the importance of valuing ourselves and others for our differences, rather than competing to be like or better than other people. I really appreciated that, because, as I am sure you know, I don't like to be anything other than myself!

And now, pictures!

It hailed!

The cats all started following me around. There were like 5 of them, not all pictured.

I had to do a quick physics problem while we were knocking in the freezing cold. Sister Zapata thought that was funny, so she took a picture.

That's all for this week!
