the beach yet, and it's a little snowy for that, but it will happen!
Sister Brown is awesome! We get along super well already and have a
lot of fun! She is half Samoan and half Tongan and is from Lehi, UT.
One of her main focuses of her mission has been reactivating members
and getting them to the temple. That is something I've never focused
on as much as I aught to and one of the many things I am learning from
This area is on fire! We have three people on date to be baptized
before the end of the month. It is seriously unreal. President Taggart
asked me how I felt about this new area and I told him I feel like I'm
in Disneyland! We have so many people that we are working with it is
almost overwhelming, but I can't complain! The ward is awesome, it is
mostly retired people. And lots of long-retired people so I love it!
Old people are the best!
I have been pretty sick since Friday morning. Which was very
unfortunate timing because we had mission leadership council from 10-3
that day. It was a long day... Saturday and Sunday we mostly stayed in
except we made it to sacrament meeting. Fortunately Sister Brown is a
boss and all our people miraculously answered their phones so she was
still able to teach people while I was sick in bed. I think I might be
feeling a little better, but it is hard to say because mornings have
been really rough and then by the late afternoon I have been able to
eat a little bit. I think it's just a stomach bug and hopefully it
will pass soon, but I could use some extra prayers for sure!
Tomorrow we are giving a training in zone meeting on using the
scriptures effectively in teaching, and then I will be going on an
exchange with the sisters that cover our area in Spanish, so that will
be interesting! Hopefully being sick won't further complicate matters!
