Newsletter week 76

Hey y'all! I hope ya had a great week. We had a good one! We really
worked hard to reach our goals this week and came super close to
meeting all of them:) I had MLC this week.. My last one! :) I love
that meeting.. But it always stresses me out.. Haha. I also had my
last zone meeting. I was able to talk about faith. I love faith. Our
Mission President challenged every companionship to baptize every
month. I love seeing the faith of the missionaries as they strive
their hardest to fulfill this challenge.
I absolutely loved conference, the spirit was so strong, I know that
those chosen men are servants of God! This is His one and only true
church. I feel so blessed to be a part of it. We watched it in English
on Saturday but on Sunday we watched it in Spanish with our
investigators. I sure am going to miss speaking this celestial
language all the time.
So ready for a story?

The story of last P-day.
So last Monday I decided that I really wanted to go hang out with the
district. So I plea the cause with my comp and she tells me that she
doesn't want to go cuz it would be lame. I assure her that it would
NOT be lame and that we would have a lot of fun.. So against her will
she finally agrees to come.
It was the end of the month.. And we were completely out of miles. The
chapel we were going to go to as a district is about 45 minutes away.
We decided to just drive to the Canyon Lakes Hermanas apartment about
15 minutes away and then we would car-pool with them.
We jump in the car with them and it is all off to a great start. I
give my companion and encouraging smile that all will be great. She
doesn't seem to be convinced.
We finally get there... And to my great despair.. It was really lame.
We tried to do some things to make it fun... And it just wasn't
working. So me, my comp, and one other of the Hermanas decide to go
get frozen yogurt to escape.
Pday comes to an end and we all pile back in the canyon lakes hermanas
car and make the trip back home. When we pull up to their apartment we
see, to our amusement, that the GPS had fallen off our car's
windshield and hit our hazard lights. I reach into my bag to grab the
keys and turn them off. To my great despair the keys were not there! I
looked frantically for them with no luck.
We had a super important appointment in 30 minutes and we were 35
minutes away. Not to mention that we were house keyless, carless and
in our pday clothes with our pros clothes locked in our hazard light
flashing car. The canyon lakes hermanas phone ring.. Their appointment
cancels. They came up with the great idea that they would just give us
some clothes, drive us to our appointment and contact in our area
while we were in the lesson. What Angels <3 so all goes well.
We receive a call from the Katy Hermanas and they inform us that they
found our keys in their chapel. They take the hike all the way down
here to bring us our keys and use every last mile hey ever had. They
are true saints. By the time we get our keys it's about.. 9:40. And
our hazard lights are starting to flash quite dimmly....And I had
officially made all the hermanas in my district get home super late. I
felt real bad.
We thank the Katy hermanas for the keys, hug them, and send them back
on their way to their apartment. Me and the other STL Hermana head to
the car, as we were planning to do splits the next day because we had
MLC super early the next morning. So I finally unlock the car.. Stick
the keys in the ignition.. Turn..... Annnnnd...... Nothing. Absolutely
nothing. The car was completely dead.
We frantically think of what on earth we could do... We decide to call
our best friend Suamy... But he didn't call any jumping cables.. So we
call our other best friend Victor. He listens.. Then laughs.. Then
says he'll come save us. He lives over 30 minutes away. He gets there
at about 10:40 and jumps our car for us. What a jem. He told us that
we couldn't turn the car off for another 20 minutes. We thank him for
saving us and he goes on his way.
We decide to just stay the night with the Canyon Lakes Hermanas.. We
sleep... Well didn't really sleep... But attempted on a super old
hide-a-way bed until the alarm went off at the unspoken hours of the
morning and me and the other STL head over to MLC and try our our
hardest not to fall asleep.
Moral of the story... My companion easily convinced me not to leave
the apartment today.. So we are staying peacefully at home. Sometimes
I wish i just would have listened the first time.

1. Victor to the rescue
2. Sleep tight.....
3. My companion hold my head when I feel stressed. #compunity
