Dear Family and Friends,
This week was interesting....It began with my companion going to the doctor. Diagnosis—Strep Throat. So, the next day, Tuesday, we were stuck in the apartment all day long because she was still contagious. We couldn't go to district meeting so we had to just be on call for it. That was very interesting. This meant a lot of down time that day so we decided to start a puzzle that we got from sister Aldrich a few weeks ago. It was the hardest puzzle of my life! It is 3D and everything is the same freaking color! But it was so fun :) It took us a good long while....
Wednesday she woke up feeling even worse than Tuesday, so, not a lot got done that day either. So, the week was off to a great start....
Thursday was exchange day! Sister Gillespie finally felt better, so I went to Lake Shawnee with Sister Pritchett and sister Gillespie stayed in Kaw Valley with Sister Chappell. It was super fun! Sister Pritchett also served in Abilene. She was there with Sister Nail right before I got there. The first day we just visited a lot of people that Sister Pritchett didn't know so we were going in blind most of the time haha. But that night we stayed up late making jokes and laughing about funny moments in our mission. Funny story though, we were walking in the freezing cold and saw people unloading a truck so we decided to go and help. Well, the guy was moving from Ogden, Utah and knew all about the missionaries. He was really nice but wasn't interested. so, we decided to give everyone there our card. As we walked away one of them texted us and was wanting to go on a date with Sister Pritchett... hahahaha we laughed so hard about it.
One of the best things about this week is that we met this really cute old man named Don! He just recently lost his wife and was really struggling with it. We told him about the Book of Mormon and read him a verse and he got really excited to read it. We also met this suuuuper cute lady named Arlie at McDonald's. She has hair so long she can sit on it. We felt prompted to ask her if she would like a picture of Jesus and she started tearing up and said "on a day like this, I would really love one." We now have an appointment with her on Tuesday. I am super excited. We also finally got back in contact with Daniel! And he still wants to be baptized! We are so excited!
I cannot believe that it is already the middle of January!! Time is going by too too fast. I want it to just slow down for a second!
I hope you all have a lovely week!! Love you all!
