Alma 26:12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

An eventful week!
this last week has been a pretty eventful one! We had some good and
sad news. The good news being my comp and I are staying together
again this transfer and the bad news being our area is being split :(
But even more good news is that we both got to stay in the ward we
wanted too haha. But sad news again is that we have to give up 3
GOLDEN investigators who we started teaching and one of them is
getting baptized next Saturday! But luckily we can go to that :)
We're not too sad about the split we kinda figure we got that ward
started on enough missionary work to get their own set of
missionaries. We will miss lots of the members there but luckily
we're still really close so its all good haha. We are excited to now
only have one ward we can focus on and get to know the members really
well. It was hard to get to know the members cause we would switch
back and forth ever other Sunday to both wards. So we're
the investigator who is getting baptized next Saturday is a
really awesome guy! His girlfriend is a member and goes to a Spanish
ward and he doesn't speak Spanish so he went to our family ward and
it was funny cause we figured he was a member cause we had seen him
before dressed in a white shirt and tie so when we found out we
jumped on it super fast! We taught him the first two lessons just
last week and he is already getting baptized :) Its wonderful to meet
and teach the people the Lord is preparing for his gospel!
its been cloudy and rainy all last week as well and that was amazing!
We both missed rain. Even though it doesn't rain too much on the east
side of Washington it still rains WAY more there than it does here
haha. One day it poured all day and the ground here doesn't soak up
water very well so when it rains everything floods. We had to drive
up this street that's a huge hill and it basically had a river
flowing though it! I happen to LOVE puddles. Idk how many of you have
seen the movie UP but in the movie there are dogs who work for the
bad guy and all you have to do to get them off track is to say
squirrel and they say where! and start looking for it haha its pretty
funny. but that's how I am with puddles so I was loving it! We
got our car completely covered by a huge wall of water coming from
this huge lifted truck it was pretty awesome haha. Lets just say we
found as many excuses to drive up the road that day haha. Its all
dried up though now :( But I found out that El Paso can be a
beautiful place...when it rains....which is once a year...haha.
I hope everyone had a great week and has an even better one this
week! Love you all!
