Slow going

I just found out that temple day is next Tuesday, so I will write next Tuesday.

We have an investigator named Hil. We took him on a church tour it was hilarious!!! He brought strawberries and such for like a little picnic. He came in and was just like "next stop." It sounded like  Luigi's friend in cars. You know the little blues lift truck thing and he always says. "pit stop." It was so funny and it was like he was the one giving the tour.  Anywho, we do a ton of tracting because we don't have any investigators or anything. So one of the doors we knocked on was an Indian couple (that wasn't strange since there's a ton) anyways this particular couple had a little girl and we said we share messsages about Jesus Christ and God. and the little girl was like "I know God and Jesus!!!" she was so cute!!!! Later that day, we started tracting around our complex. We're not supposed too, but I had a feeling we needed too. We found 2 potential investigators. one of them is a man and his family. His name is Joe. He has a daughter with Down Syndrome and his other daughter loves Star Wars. He told us that they saw our temple in L.A. and he started crying. We actually get to teach him tomorrow. I can't wait to teach him tomorrow.

We  have a goal as a mission to get 101 baptisms this month. and if we get it we get to hike Mount Si. so everywhere we go we shout "give me this mountain!!" Hill also went to the potluck and he was hilarious!!!! so like no one showed up so we were improvising with who did show up, and he was saying we should just buy food and that the church would reimburse us. Sister Jones (R.S. Pres.) asked him if he was a member and he said, "of costco. yes." It was so funny we all started laughing.

Can you ask Renee if she knows any Riddle's. My District Leader is Elder Riddle.  He's from San Diego. He goes home in a month.

I got the Powell's letter. Please thank them for me.

I think that's all that has happened.

May the Spirit be with you

Busy Week

First item of business. I might be writing on Tuesday next week because we believe it's Temple day. 2nd, Brother and Sister Lindsly are from Utah and go back fairly often so if I need to send things home or if you want to send me things, they said they'd be happy to take it. I believe their next trip is in June or July, I can't remember.  They're awesome and love to help us out. They have 2 dogs!! One is HUGE!!!! His name is Deisel the other is way small and is named Tinkerbell. She has so much energy it's funny!! And she's very playful, Kaylee would love her!!

 3rd, I am now the driver of the car XP.  It is very exciting. but I'm getting used to the area. so it's not too bad now. And yeah... and 3rdly, tell Travis to memorize D&C 4.  I'll send it next week but we recite those every meeting.  And tell him to get used to singing to strangers, because we are a singing mission. I have sung "I Am a Child of God" so many times.

Monday: Last Monday was exciting, we went to downtown Bellevue because Sister Thompson had to return shoes. So we ate at the cafe in Nordstroms. I also tried my first Seattle chocolate. It just tasted like chocolate. We spent most of our day there and then we relaxed around our apartment. yeah...

Tuesday:uhh... We studied, we did tons of contacting and tracting, man the days just blur together. I can't remember what we did.  Maybe I need to start bringing my journal to the library with me so I can remember. I guess I'll just touch on the things that I can remember. Fushia is in Tacoma now. She called us a few days ago because she forgot something but she's doing good. I  can't wait to hear from her again!!!

We also taught our investigator Georgeann. We had a girl in the ward came with us. We were hoping to commit Georgeann to baptism but it just wasn't there. We were hoping she would be our miracle. Maybe we'll be able to this week.

We also taught this girl named Tami who has gone deaf and is learning ASL   So we sign to each other from time to time! So it's great.

One day Sister Thompson was so tired that we went to the gas station and she bought a drink. She bought one of the fancy ones in the glass bottle, but lo and behold, it was not a twist off. After trying to open it with our hands, we finally just went home and used the can opener. My hand was so red and got a little cut up, but it's doing fine now. I wish I could say that for my feet though XP.

I forgot to write about Hil!! He's our new investigator we found at Idlywood Park. He's from Taiwan, he's so funny and was so interested. We have a meeting with him this week. I hope we can answer his questions better. XP

May the Spirit be with you

From Bellevue

My companion is Sister Thompson. ...pretty sure I spelled that wrong.  She's from Farmington, Utah.
I'm in Bellevue, Washington. The Mission Home address is 10675 NE 20th Street, Bellevue WA 98004. I'm really close to the temple and the Microsoft Campus is just across the street from the apartment that I live in. It's really green; I'm really enjoying it here. There are so many trees and stuff it's so beautiful. On the freeway, it has this thing that tells you how fast you should go and it changes depending on the traffic. I thought that was really cool. I didn't really get the chance to do any tracting yesterday. but we have some lessons and stuff planned for today.

Off we go...

She called this morning around 8:00 a.m. to let us know she was at the airport in Salt Lake.  She will be on Delta Flight DAL1857 that lands at around 9:15 a.m. in Seattle.  She said her whole district is with her.  Some of them are waiting for Visas ans were assigned there in the meantime.  It was so good to hear from her.  She sounds happy and excited.
