Sarah and her companion were invited to the High Priest Social. I had mentioned to Brother McNeal that I don't get many pictures of Sarah so he sent me another one! Fun times with lot's of pictures of Sarah!
Brother McNeal even made a video of the social and sent me a link if your interested. I want to put it in a safe place so I don't lose it!
We were very privileged to get to meet Sarah's Mission President and his wife tonight. They were in Dallas for training. We just happen to work with a very good friend of there's in the Temple and they were so very kind to let us come to a dinner they had planned as friends. We were worried we were intruding on the their time together but they made us feel so welcome. It really was incredible to meet the couple that takes care of our daughter and so many other missionaries. We feel very blessed to get to know them and tell them a few more things about Sarah! We had to take a picture of course!
I'm not getting transferred! I will be staying in Scottsdale till the
end of May. Also we will be getting iPad's in May. Our mission has been
approved finally. I think we might be the last Arizona mission to get
Being on bike has been really fun. Kinda.
I've been getting a work out. I usually bike around 10 miles a day.
Exercise is a good thing though. I go a little crazy if I don't bike.
Which this week was interesting because I got a little sick and so did
my companion. When we get sick we call our mission nurse. Well. I didn't
want to call the nurse. Next thing I knew I heard my companion, pride
comes before the hospitalization. Turns out I'm fine though!
week was general conference! Which is where all the church leaders give
talks and it's really great. This time I watched it with a family at
there home. There was a lot of adorable chatter due to the fact that
they have a two year old.
I got a Easter surprise today! A wonderful member in Scottsdale fed my adorable daughter tonight and sent me pictures. I LOVE getting pictures of my missionaries randomly. It is the best! Thanks Brother McNeal your the best!
I would like to apologize about not writing enough group emails. I'm not
very good at that sometimes. This week I have some fun stories!
going to start with the funny story of the week. It all starts with
District Meeting. Sister Lee and I were asked to give a training on
companionship unity. The training went well and we committed everyone do
do something during the week to serve/work better with their companion.
So this week, Sister Lee and I practiced the lessons a lot, she made my
bed and did my dishes and I made me dinner one night. Doesn't sound too
funny or interesting, right? Here's the funny part; that dinner I made
her? She got food poisoning haha. It was hilarious when we figured it
out! I was fine, I guess her body didn't quite accept the lentils,
Last night we riding our bikes
and we were almost to the apartment and we waved hello to some people on
the streets.Then my companion ran into me. It was awkward for everyone,
but we survived. They didn't know what to do and we were so
Well I'm working hard and biking my heart out in Scottsdale, the most livable city. (That's the slogan seriously look it up)
This week there was no group e-mail but Sarah sent pictures of her new companion S. Lee! They get along great and LOVE serving in the same ward as their Mission President, President Sweeney. I have heard from a great source that the ward loves them just as much!
