Good afternoon everyone!
This week has been beautiful in Utah! Now that Shaney has left
(coincidence? I think not!). But we have had a lot of fun. There
are lots of opportunities now to do service! On Tuesday and Wednesday,
we helped a really cool old black lady (you don't find very
many of those here). She had a tree cut down, and we stacked all of
the logs and cleaned up the branches. Then, on Wednesday, we helped
someone who collects old shoes and donates them to Haiti. We helped
her sort the shoes and put them together in pairs. She had over 1000
pairs! Her garage was filled! We also planted some flowers for
someone. She was super appreciative!
We also went on a hike last Monday in Sandy. It was beautiful! We
hiked up to a lake, and one of our sisters was feeding and trying to
pet wild geese. She is crazy! But we had a lot of fun. I will send
pics next week when I have more time.
The work has been pretty slow. We are still working on finding new
people. We have a few potentials, but all of our appointments this
week cancelled. But I have faith! We did have a pretty good lesson
with a les active last night.
Yesterday we had stake conference, and we were asked to translate into
Spanish. I tried it for 2 minutes, and it's hard! Listening to
something in one language and saying it in another, while continuing
to listen, is really difficult. But conference was great! We had
Elder Borne of the 70, as well as the Oqquiirh Mountain temple
Today has been busy! We went to a Hispanic market in Kearns, and then
we made a Mexican lunch for our district. It was awesome! We also
had a big thunderstorm. One clap of thunder was so close that it
shook the house!
Sorry this email is so short. P day ends in 30 minutes. But I will
talk to you all on Sunday. We will probably do it about 6pm pacific
time. I am so excited! Have a fantastic week!
