This past week fleeeeeeeeeeeeew by like crazy, which yet again, was a tender mercy from the Lord. We had so many things going on. It was a really good week actually. Very, very eventful. Lets start from the beginning:
|Sister Treadwell AFTER the fall|
Tuesday- A girl came into the church building and I told her how pretty she was. She was probably like 14 and she goes “You have beautiful white teeth!” hahah I was like, well that’s deff not a compliment I can say I hear all the time ahaha. Thank you. Random girl at church who I don’t even know. Thank you.
Wednesday- We went over and saw Ms. Robinson. She is so great. She wants to learn more about family history work and wants to start working on hers. I’ve found on the mission that working on family history work brings the spirit so strong into our lives. We met a drug dealer this day. Totally normal. We felt like crap so we treated ourselves to some icecream! It’s getting HOT UP HUR in the desert!
WOODYS BAPTISM WAS AMAZING. President and Sister Hobbs ending up coming, so it was nice to see them and chat with them a while. Woody was there like 45 mins early because he was just SO excited and a ton of his family (not members) came to support him which was nice. He is so tall and the man baptizing him knees locked up on him and we were scared woody wouldn’t come back up out of the water haah which was perfect because Sis. Woody (his wife) kept joking around about how brother smith needed to hold him down as llllllllllllonnnnnnnnnnnng as possible because he needed as much purifying as possible hahah. It was a beautiful service and the spirit was so strong.
Oh, we also had smores this night…first smores of the year…..awesome.
I wish I had time to share more with you. I have had so many wonderful insights come to mind this week. Its funny because you always hear to write down your promptings/revelation from the holy ghost and now I know it’s a powerful thing. The more I actually take the time to write them down and express how I’m feeling right then and there, the more they come. All week I have come to learn so many things in different ways than I ever saw them. Maybe I’ll share some next week :)
One thing that’s funny to me: I think that people (especially members) think missionaries are perfect or something. When in reality we are soooooooo far from it and we are more aware of it than ever lol. I think the tag deceives people. We are still human. We still do dumb things we shouldn’t and we still are little kids at heart. Remember that the next time you see a missionary mess up on accident, just like you do, and don’t give em a hard time. I promise you they are already beating themselves up for it anyways haha.
I love you all. I can’t wait to see what all the Lord has in store for me here in Hesperia. Go check out mormon.org there are a toooooooooon of cool/funny/happy videos on there that will make you happy :)
