So I told you last week about Ming Ranier. She came to church yesterday!!! WOO HOO! You can't imagine how happy that makes me. She is so awesome! We go visit her and she just knows so much and has such a strong conviction. She has read in the Book of Mormon from 1st Nephi to halfway through Alma. Are you kidding me?! So many members haven't done that. She is set up to be baptized this next Sunday! Fingers crossed. Pray for her. She will be a powerful member as long as she goes to church. :) I truly love her!

Who wants one? There are lots of options.
And we have my whole mission. So pretty!
Yesterday was a crazy day! First of all, sister melting got in a wreck with a motto. The motto hit her straight on and she flipped over her bike. Fortunately she has no scratches, unfortunately her back hurts. She went to the mission home last night. So we are on splits for the next bit. :( I can't tell you how much I appreciate living in the same house as sister Melting. She knows just what I am going through. (As a reminder, we were in the MTC together). Plus she is so so funny! I seriously love her! I hope she gets better fast. She is so tough and she HATES sitting out of the work. She is awesome.
Also yesterday, in the middle of sacrament meeting there was extra time, so my branch president was like we'll now here from Elder Home and Sister Homer......WHAT?!?!?!? You should have seen my face. I wish I could have seen my face. At this point though it was like "oh sure i'll go do this crazy thing that i've never done before!" So I just bore my testimony about essentially anything I could think of. Stressful! Fun! Crazy! Afterwards a returned missionary who served in Cambodia but who speaks english really well told me that my accent was really good! Wow! What a compliment! I'm sure that I have so so so far to go, but that was a little bit of positive encouragement that was nice to hear!

Isn't she adorable?
This week was kind of stressful because Sister Cheek was new so we had to show her around the area and stuff. Turns out I kinda led us around all week. I was so stressed! I've only been here 3 weeks, I don't know anything! But I know enough! So that was fun and I found out I know more than I thought.
You won't even guess what is happening right now. I am in the internet cafe and a young fellow on a computer nearby is blasting one direction... I don't think I even need to say anything more about that. Pure Joy.
|The rain outside my house!|
|my poncho. ha. a joke.|
Also, because it is raining a lot the temperature is cooler. I think there was a day this week that I didn't really sweat. You don't know what that means to me. I was working hard, don't worry. But I hardly sweat. Wow. Bliss.
Can I just tell you that I am so grateful for dishes. In a place where everything is crazy and foreign and not how i'm used to dishes are still dishes. And dishes still need to be washed. And I can wash those dishes. At the end of the day when if feels like I really did hardly anything to help here, I can always do the dishes and totally complete them. You can't imagine how much I love that. Weird.
I want you to know that I have had no major bug encounters so far. I am fully convinced that this is a blessing from Heavenly Father. Of course I am essentially one massive mosquito bite, but other than that I really think Heavenly Father has diverted the little devils. I have only seen already dead cockroaches! Wow! What a blessing! I'm sure it's just time, but I'm okay with it for now. :)
I love you all! Let me know what you want to hear about! Sorry this is all so random!
