Hello family!

Sorry for the short email this week. It’s a Tuesday. πŸ™‚

We had a great week this week!
On Monday, we went to the arch and the cathedral basilica in the city! It was Sister Lyons’ first time there. The arch is still under construction so we couldn’t get too close to it. We also went to Seoul Taco! It’s that one place where you get Korean food in a tortilla. #Genius πŸ™‚

Miracle of the week: So we got dropped a lot this week (not the miracle yet..) so we did a lot of finding! We went tracting without a ton of success. BUT. While we were tracting we talked to someone on the street. Her name is Jessica and she was walking her dog, we started talking and she told us she had been thinking she had wanted to start getting into church! She kept telling us what a miracle it was that we ran into her! She’s going through a lot and I hope she stays solid. But it was a much needed tender mercy. πŸ™‚
We had District Meeting on Thursday and got to meet our new district! Everyone is training and we had 3 new missionaries there! It was great! I love greenie missionary fire!
Speaking of greenie missionary fire… SISTER BUSTILLOS IS COMING BACK!!!!!!!!! She’s my MTC companion from California. She re-submitted her papers and got a call last Thursday saying that she’ll be leaving on Tuesday!!!! I am so excited! πŸ™‚ Happy day. I’m happy for her and that she’s coming back to Missouri.
On Sunday, we had the best member present lesson ever! Our Bishop and his wife invited us and Kate for dinner and FHE at their home. It was perfect and Kate had a good time. They had great input for the lesson and made great food! It was fancy.
Everything else is going well! Kate is still super awesome. She’s making relationships with the ward members and the members are being so great to her! She’s going on a mini mission this week! It’s a 4 day mission with some sister missionaries! We are both excited! We are getting a mini missionary too! We have Zone Conference tomorrow and will pick up our mini missionary there! πŸ™‚
Yesterday our ward had a Memorial Day picnic. It was lots of fun, our less active, Carol came! We were so excited to see her there! Oh, and WE GOT TO WEAR PANTS!!!Β  It was great, you don’t realize how much you miss jeans when you wear a skirt all day every day.
Anyways, things are good! Life is good and I love being a missionary! πŸ™‚
The gospel is true! Miracles happen! πŸ™‚
