This week was awesome, I loved it a lot! We worked a TON and we went to the very edges of our area, and down long dirt roads just to knock on some doors where other missionaries have never gone! So we definitely put some miles on bike riding!!
But yea, this week was an adventure... and time goes FLYING by now. I don't know what happened, but I have like a calendar in my study room, and I set goals for myself every day and make different marks as I complete them... but today, this morning, when I looked up and I saw that the ENTIRE week passed by - I was blown away, because it literally feels like it all happened in a day!
But yea, awesome week, I loved it, and something super funny happened this week!
So I do exercise almost everyday here. I try my very best to do it, but some days I just do like a pushup and call it.. yea... So the funny thing is EVERY SINGLE TIME I flake out on morning excersice here on the mission, I just so happened to get volunteered for physical service on the road, to make up for the exercise. I don't know if I've already told you this, but it totally happens!! God makes sure I get my exercise on the daily! Jajajaja!
For example, This week, the one day I didn't exercise, I think I was just feeling lazy, like I could get a hall pass for all the bicycle riding we're gonna do. So, we're out riding our bikes and a member stops us...
'Hey Elders!!! Do you have a minute?? I need help with something.'
'yea of course, what's up?'
'I sold my piano and I gotta get it moved like right now.. Can you help me?'
A PIANO?!!! Ha! So, we totally helped him move his piano... After the mission, ask me about the other times, and I'll share stories for every other time I passed... like one time in la Sierra, I had to push a truck up a hill :) so that was cool!! Would have been easier just to exercise! Hahahaha
Something interesting I liked this week was shared in Church. The teacher was talking about the importance of attitude, and how our attitude of obedience is pretty much just as important as our obedience. If we're obedient, but moaning and complaining, what benefit does it have? The funny thing is he said that obedience is a rule, so if we're gonna be obedient, we might as well do it happily!! And he used the example of washing dishes for Mom when we were young. We all had to wash the dishes anyway, so why weren't we just happy about it? It woulda made life so much easier for EVERYONE!!!
(Sorry Mom, only took me about 20 years to get that thru my head... if only I'd have learned it when I was 9... Ha!)
Oh and how could I forget that I got a phone call Saturday from a number in Chihuahua!! It was Bishop Loera!!!! Holy cow, I love them so much!!! They made the drive out to Delicias just to deliver the package Lauren and Jewlz had given them for me in Utah!! That was such an amazing exchange, being able to see them and recieve that from Lauren and Jewlz. It was just awesome! (We also totally took a sweet lightsaber fight video but this ciber is super slow so I'll send it next week if we can get in a better ciber) ...and the cookie butter is gone. Yes, already! Ha ;)
We also had a beautiful talk with a sister that's learning about the gospel this week, and she gave the prayer at the end of the lesson, and when she prayed she prayed for her sons and for us and it really reminded me of your prayers Mom. :) I feel your prayers every day, but boy, I sure do miss em!
We are good and everything's amazing here, I hope you guys are well and loving life!
God loves you!!!!
Using talents learned in la Sierra ;)
