1/20/15 Week 45

Me defying gravity in my new Christmas PJs
So I'll give you one guess how I would describe this week.  Yep, you guessed it… CRAAAAZZZYY!! Have you heard that from me before??  Crazy but good :)   The changes have been fun and exciting to mix things up a little.  This week basically we just made it a goal to try and get to know all of our new investigators.  It's been a lot of driving around, which isn't my favorite...especially since it's been like 75 and sunny these past few days! Texas weather is so weird, but hey I can't complain about warmth!

To answer your question Mom, yes I'm senior comp ...not that that really means much.  If you haven't noticed I'm not really the bossy type.  Plus I don't think that pulling the sr comp card would really go over well in this trio.  The mission continues to teach me the right and sometimes wrong ways to try to have a close, successful, and unified relationship with sisters that don't always agree with me and that have mood swings as often as I do!   I've finally learned sometimes to just shut my mouth be comfortable with silence!

But because I am the companion with the most seniority it's kind of my responsibility to be the example ALL the time, but think I can do it!  I've really been focusing on just giving EVERYTHING to the Lord.  I know that’s how we are happiest!  And that doesn't count just for missions :)
My new comp is Hna Beckstead and she is awesome! She is still super new and is a breath of fresh air at times because she loves getting to know me and talking about "normal people things" like my life back home.

Anyways, right now with my old and new areas we have about 15 investigators! Wahoo! I honestly still don't even know half of them, but from what the zone leaders say they are pretty awesome.  God seriously is helping us out SO much here! Example: the ZL's were "positive" that they gave us the right address to contact this golden family (la familia Rosales) but we were driving around and we could not find it anywhere.  Finally we decided to pray (why didn't we think of that sooner?), then we got out of the car and just decided to start knocking some doors.  The 3rd door we knocked on a man comes out and is super friendly, listens, asks a bunch of questions, tells us we can come back whenever we want! Were thinking "sweet, good find!" haha then we ask what his last name is and he says "oh were the familia Rosales". Haha - God obviously really wants us to convert these people!

It's so cool, because that was just a tiny little tender mercy.  As missionaries they seriously happen so often that half the time I don't even realize how much God is really helping us until I take a sec and reflect on it.  But when I do, it's so obvious!! I'm willing to bet that it's kind of the same thing with all of you "normal people" at home. If you are ever feeling kinda blah, just take a sec and think of all the "tender mercies" that God has helped you with, or given you.  I promise you'll find something! And I also promise you'll feel less blah afterwards :)
