She's happy, happy, happy. And that makes ME happy!

Me, Sister Brimhall and Sister Smith were talking the other day about how our friends always want to know a day in the life of a missionary. what do you even do all day? and oh my goodness haha we all talked about the struggle of explaining our life!! Every day we meet new people, see new things, go to different places, try new strategies, teach everywhere, serve everywhere, it's crazy hahah and i LOVE it!!! Everyday is different but the same. We just want to do what we are here for and invite others to come unto Christ! Each day there our new surprises and things can go in any direction. But we always know, without a shadow of a doubt, that we are meant to be here and we are doing exactly what the lord wants us to do at this time in our lives. its amazing.

This week was another great one! Probably the funniest thing that happened was when we were contacting a bunch of less-actives. So we get to this one home and the woman answers the door. We get all excited (that happens sometimes haha) and start talking like we knew her. Asking if she needed any help around her house, pet her dog, set up a time to come by again and we were off. When we got into the car, we realize that she might have been a non-member and it was her husband who was less active! We died laughing! how could we make such a silly mistake! the poor lady just standing there so confused as we go on without even saying who we were and what we do! Oh it was awful. So we started to call around, trying to figure out if she was baptized or not. Turns out we she WAS and is less-active haha so that was good. we didn't ruin it completely. We carry on the rest of our day. The day we were supposed to meet with her, we got a voice mail from her saying she knows our purpose and doesn't want to come back to church. It heart our hearts a bit to hear,  but people have their agency so we moved on. The next day she texts us and invites us over for a family BBQ!! said she would love to see us. Umm.. YES!! So we went and that was fun! We were happy to be there and get to know her and her husband better. It was confusing but great hahaha. Other then that, we just taught people and did our normal duties haha I love love love being a missionary!! I know i say that every email haha but I can't help it! I am SO happy. I feel myself changing and growing so much. I want to be the best I can be. This life is so short and really, the only important thing is what God wants us to do. When we follow him, we are always blessed and are always happy. Love you all!!
