This week has been crazy!
April 18: Today was just a chill p-day which was really nice. Especially since we've had some crazy days.
April 19: Today we went and visited this cute old lady Annette, who is less active. It was really funny when her daughter let us in she asked us how we had gotten in her gated community and we told her we had called in and been let into the gate. I don't think she realized that her less active daughter had let us in. Then this evening our whole day fell apart and I have officially decided that I never want to be an actual secretary and plan peoples schedules because though I could do it, my texting fingers would hurt afterwards.
April 20: Today while knocking we met this lady Valerie, who was just so grateful for a prayer because her daughter is struggling a lot right now. It is so cool to see how God sends us to those people who need our help and need a little more love from God.
April 21: Today was awesome, we went and had lunch with a recent convert named Pablo. He is super funny and prefers to speak Spanish and has it in his mind to teach all the English sisters Spanish. Well lets just say that I don't speak Spanish, though I've started to learn a little bit on my mission and it was just so funny trying to talk to him in my gringo Spanish and I think it made his day. After our meal appointment today was pretty scary. We were knocking in the neighborhood of the members that had fed us when all of a sudden an ambulance drove past us. Didn't think much of it till we got to the end of the street and saw that it was parked in front of the members house. The daughter had passed out and was taken to the hospital, but she is doing fine now.
April 22: We went up to Delray today (ahh good old Delray) to visit a part member family and it was so cool. They really are a sweet old couple and they loved having us come and visit (I know because they told us and everyone they knew how happy it made them). Really cool Brother Wilson has this Book of Mormon from when he was investigating in the church and it is a really rare edition that has a lot of cool added bonus material. Also we helped them to figure out their Dell pad and that was the most technology I've touched in 6 months and it was really weird.
April 23: Today while knocking we had this guy walk up to us and was like "Bet you'll never guess who I am" as he walks up shirtless with a cigarette in hand. Well he saw my name tag and was like "Hey that's my name!" We found a less active member who has the same last name as me and it was super funny. Well he told us he wanted us to come back and visit another time, so ya we are going back to help him. Then we went to our ward's talent show and man this ward has a lot of talent. It was fun to see all the talents, especially since a few of the young kids signed up for talents.
April 24: At church today we got to sub for the little kids and got to teach the 4-6 year olds and man they are a ball full of energy. It makes me so glad that I'm a missionary and am teaching people older than that everyday. Also funny story while we were knocking today this lady drove up the street really slow and then drove away. Well we were still standing at the same door when the car came back around the corner and then backed into the driveway of the door we were knocking. The lady had literally driven around the block to avoid talking to us. We also found out that the street gets knocked a lot by Jehovah's Witnesses, in fact someone had a sign that said please no Jehovah's Witnesses, so maybe that's why that happened.
Well good times here in Boca Raton!
