Scottsdale Days

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!

I'm 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, though.

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 embarrassed. 

Well I'm working hard and biking my heart out in Scottsdale, the most livable city. (That's the slogan seriously look it up)

Sarah's new companion S. Lee

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!

Greyhound fun!

Some weeks Sarah doesn't have time to do her group e-mail so I'm adding a fun e-mail and picture I received this week.  

This lady has 8 greyhounds that she's adopted or is currently fostering. I was in doggy paradise. I want all of them. Sarah

I served over half my mission in Paradise.

I got transferred! I left Paradise Valley for Scottsdale. I'm in my mission presidents ward doing English work on bike. It's super fun. My companion loves to ride fast and so do I. Watch out for the 2 sisters racing each other. Since I haven't been transferred, I've realized I have too many things. Today will be spent unpacking and getting rid of things.

It was really sad leaving my old area. I had gotten really close with the people there. I  got to see how much of impact you can make on the lives of the people you help. I think that everything! 

Also thanks for the birthday shout outs! I had the best birthday ever.
