We had to take a weird selfie because we were wearing pants.Β 

This week was so fabulous!! The days blend together and time seems to go so fast! Sickness seems to be a part of missionary life from time to time so we didn’t get as much proselyting time as we would have liked. But we are better now. πŸ™‚ We had some great lessons with people! We also helped a family move. They are employees of our ward mission leader and not members. There were 3 sets of missionaries and it was the hottest day of the year so far. I think moving boxes should be considered a water sport. Never sweated so much in my life. We were all soaked! Yay for humidity! Haha but it was fun and we got to know the family pretty well! Oh, and we got to wear pants!!!

We did a lot of apartment contacting this week. Apartment managers can’t get mad at you for soliciting (even if you’re NOT solicitors) if you’re just walking around! It was super effective! We found solid potentials and made some return appointments. We also did some street contacting/tracting. We walk around and knock on random doors we feel inspired to knock on. Cool experience: We were walking and I felt like we needed to knock on this door, we went back and knocked and no one was home. Ok, whatever, we left a card. But right as we were leaving, the neighbor got out of her car! We started talking to her and had a great conversation! She want’s us to come back and teach her more!! Lesson learned: follow promptings. Often times, the reason we get a prompting isn’t directly related to what we actually need to do. It’s been cool to learn the language of the Spirit more on my mission. As missionaries, we get spiritual promptings all the time but we don’t recognize them as promptings right away. The Spirit is everywhere in missionary work! πŸ™‚
As you know, Sister Lyons is from Canada and she totes has a Canadian accent. My favorites for the week were Β swAgger wAgon, bAgpipes, and covered wAgons. It’s the best! We have fun together. πŸ™‚

This is President and Sister Morgans last week! I am so sad! I’m going to miss them so much! They’ve been just who I needed as my mission presidents. I’m so grateful to them for their love and support. We get to meet the Batemans this week. I’m excited to meet them on Saturday!
I hope you all have a great week! Don’t forget to read the scriptures! I love you all so much! Thanks again for the birthday wishes! πŸ™‚
