Week 27 - 6 months out, pasole, a blizzard and a baptism scheduled

As usual this week has been crazy and full of adventures!  I can't believe I've been gone for 6 months, it's gone by so fast.

On Monday we had a normal P-day (didn't have to stay in because of the weather like we did the week before).  The harder you work throughout the week, the more P-day's are an essential part of missionary work ha!

Tuesday we went on Exchanges in Chariton and Elder Miranda and I went with Elder Croxall.  It was a great exchange.  We taught one of the people they are teaching about the Plan of Salvation and he said it made a lot of sense it was a really cool lesson.

Wednesday we headed back from Chariton and we tracted most the day we found a newly married couple named Stanley y Claudia, they are so amazing we have a lesson with them tonight. They are so sweet!! And we had dinner with a new family in our ward, the Wanbergs.

Thursday we had district meeting and after we went over to Leslie Cabrera's house for District Lunch.  She fed us pasole, it was so good!! And she loved it! Then after lunch was over we went on exchanges with Lenox here in Osceola. We did service first then went back to change and we were locked out. So we went to our appointment in service clothes.  As we pulled up to the appointment I had never seen such a dark brown looking sky. What we didn't know was that a blizzard was going to hit so we ran into our appointment. Once we came out we got a text from our zone leaders that the cars were grounded and that if we didn't have any set appointments that were within close walking distance that we couldn't go. So that shut that exchange down fast. But me and Elder Stock had a blast together!! We came out to the field together, and have served around each other since we have been out.

Friday we had a lesson with a former investigator at the Whitlows home and she said she wants to be baptized!!! Her date is set for February 23rd!! We are so excited for her! After that we tracted pretty much the rest of the night.

On Saturday the highlight was definitely a discussion with a Hispanic woman who didn't know that I could understand Spanish, and as we were talking with her she was talking about how good looking I am. Hahaha it was so hilarious!! 

That was a brief summary of my week.
