Ever since I got here I have wanted to finish my mission here! I ALSO GET TO KEEP MY CUTE LIL SPICY LATINA COMPANERA HNA MALPICA!!!!!!!!!!! #blessed
I got food poisoning this week from some sketch chinese place that all the Tongan members like to take us to called “#1 Chinese Buffet”. BUT I WASN’T GONNA LET THAT STOP ME!!! The Lord blessed me with enough strength to get through the day and that is a MIRACLE!!!!!
We got asked to go welcome all the new missionaries in the upcoming week in Fresno so that will be AWESOME!!!!!!
ALRIGHT THAT IS ALL FOR THIS WEEK!!!! Please enjoy these pics of dirty sweaty me and also grapes!!!!!!
THIS WEEK WAS FABULOUS!!!!!! Literally So busy tho like idk where to even begin!!!
Monday- We had district meeting and then had FHE at Oliver (our Ward Mission Leader house and he FINALLY TOLD them he was going on a mission!!!!!!! I always knew he would! He has changed SO much!! Berry excited for him!
Tuesday- We got to do some family history with Barbara and Oceria. Berry fun. We found out that I am very much white!!!!! Whitney LITERALLY means “white island” Literally can’t get Whiter than this haha!!!!!!
Wednesday- We had exchanges and I was with Sister Dixon. I LOVE EXCHANGES BC I LEARN SOO STINKING MUCH!!!! She was like ” I don’t even think of u as my Sister Training Leader” and I was like “oh ya I keep forgetting about that”. I just work hard and love the ppl and so does Sister Dixon! Needless to say we got along gr8!!!! Not to mention, she laughed at my jokes!
Thursday- after we exchanged back we drove to chowchilla and did splits with the Sisters there bc one of them is super Sick so that was FUN! Let’s just say I’m very blessed I haven’t gotten sick on my mission yet (knock on wood) (jk bc that’s superstitious) but I WOULD TOTALLY GO NUTS being at home all day!!!! I know MOM I HAVE CHANGED ALOT LOL!!!
Friday-We found out that the Tapia’s were not married so we had to push back their d8 but ALL IS WELL!!!! It is the Lord’s timing not mine!!!!!
Saturday WE WERE IN MERCED ALL DAY GETTING OUR CAR FIXED… LITERALLY ALL DAY! IT WAS THE WORST- glad I don’t have 2 bike tho lol!!!!!!
ok I don’t even have time to do Sunday oh well!!!!! srry peeps!!!! 2 much fun!!!
I gave Christain my old name tag and he was pretending 2 b me!!!!! He said “someone get me a grandma dress” lol
Fisher of men!!!!!!!!
WOW FOLKS WHAT A WEEK!!!!! IT HAS LITERALLY just been miracle after miracle!!!! Also I am in love with Sister Malpica!!! She really brings out my spicy Latina side!!!!! BUT YA WE HAD A BUSY WEEK…
So we have been teaching the T family for like 5EVER!!!!! and there was all this drama because originally they wanted to be baptized in Oregon (she has a sister that is a member there and the Elder that started teaching them is there) SO THIS ELDER finishes his mission on AUG 15th and decides to set a baptismal date to baptize them b4 he goes home. Which alright cool as long as they are progressing towards baptism BUT THEN HE DIDNT EVEN TELL ANYONE. I love him… he is a child of God. BUTTTTT REALLY long story short, the T’s are awesome and decided that they are going to be baptized here NEXT SATURDAY THE 19th AND they are going to invite a bunch of their Non Member family #PUMPED!!!
ZONE CONFERENCE AND EXCHANGES THIS WEEK!!!! It was SO fun!!! I got to go spend a day in Madera aka literally LITTLE MEXICO with Sister Fisher!!!!! I spoke lots of spanish, ate sum posole, and fiesta-ed til curfew/pumpkin time!!!! So, this was our 1st Zone Conference with President and Sister Mackay and they were like ” we want all the Sisters to sing”. So the Gundersons- senior couple in charge of music thingys- sent us a text asking us to sing and we were like “is it mandatory tho” and they were like “ya”. So we show up and then everyone is surprised when we don’t know how to sing LOL WE TOLD Y’ALL!!!! Just bc we are sister missionaries does NOT mean that we sing and play the piano COME ON People!!!!
We ACTUALLY have a progressing investigator in the Los Banos ward- and that is a MIRACLE!!!! His name is George and he is the boyfriend of a Less Active member that just moved here! It has been so cool to see the miracles happening there after we took council from Zone Conference! They are currently living together so we had to teach the LAW OF CHASTITY- that’s always fun!!!! We taught them the doctrine on the Law of Chastity and committed them to pray and read in the Book of Mormon together and the next visit we had with them, they told us they wanted to get married! It truly is a blessing to serve in the Lord’s Vineyard!!! Especially Los Banos!! I don’t ever want to leave.
School is back and at it again here in the central valley and all my Recent Converts are attending seminary at 5:45 in the morning #dedication #veryproud!!!!!
