My Eyes are Blue

Hello, there!

This week was a bit crazy, but it was good.
Monday after writing we ate at Wendy's to celebrate the 4th of July.

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Cuetes- fireworks. As in, "the good thing about living in a second-story apartment near the border is that we got to see fireworks on the fourth of july!"
Ojos de color- colored eyes (eyes that aren't brown). As in, "After our district meeting, we determined that people with colored eyes see colors different than people with brown eyes, because all of the brown-eyed people thought that my eyes were gray and that another colored-eyed sister's red skirt was orange. It was a pretty heated debate."
Obra- work. As in, "For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." Moses 1:39. Our work is the work of salvation!

Two stories.
Monday after our meeting we went to the appointment that we had, and the person we were looking for wasn't home. Her daughter came outside to tell us and we ended up talking with her for a while. We taught her a bit about the restoration of the gospel and how it blesses families, and she invited us to come back later in the week.
When we went back, a member went with us. She testified about how the gospel has blessed her family and how it helped her raise 5 kids as a single mom. This investigator happens to be a single mom of 4 young children, so it really meant something to her. She loved what we taught and said that she wants those blessings in her family. We're going to see her again this week.

Tuesday I did a companion exchange with my old companion, Hermana Nakandakare here in my area. Around 7:30 our last appointment cancelled on us, so we went looking for somebody else to teach before the day ended. We saw a lady pulling weeds on her sidewalk and offered her our help. People almost never let us help them, but she did! We helped her for a while and told her a bit about what we do as representatives of Jesus Christ, serving people and teaching His message. We set another appointment to come back and help her more and teach her a bit about our message.

I went to my first mission leadership council this week and I'm going to be helping the zone leaders in another zone present their zone meeting today, so it will be interesting.

I hope everyone has a lovely week!
