Living the Dream!

"The B* family at the Temple."

"The sisters in our zone went to lunch."

So, we actually had P-day today instead of on Wednesday! The temple is closed this month so we can't go this week so we're back to the same old schedule! it's crazy, some kids start school this week and everyone else next week! starting school in july would be SO weird! Plus it's like super hot here, got up to 117 on thursday, not sure if it ever get's below 100. When we get home at night, it's 100 and when we leave in the morning it's 100 and it only gets hotter during the day! But, I think I may be slowly getting used to it. And during monsoon season, which is now, there will be dust/wind/rain storms which helps it cool off a bit. Life is great though.
This week was once again, AMAZING! I love being a missionary, it's seriously the best.
We had exchanges on Wednesday, I went with Hermana S into her spanish area, which covers all of Maricopa. I learned so much from her! She only has these last 3 weeks of the transfer and then 1 transfer after this one until she goes home, so I got to ask her a lot of questions and I learned about not wasting time and being exatly obedient. I learned about loving everyone and looking for the miracles everyday. Spanish work is completely different than english work, but I love both of them!
Met with C* again this week, talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It's hard because she has already been baptized and feels the Holy ghost, we are trying to help her realize that she can have the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost when she get's confirmed. She actually came to church yesterday! Not sure how she feels about it, but at least she came! She doesn't think it's fair that most members of our church have read the Book of Mormon cover to cover but not the bible. So we made a pact with her that if we start reading the Bible she will start reading the Book of Mormon. We are still working with K*! He's super excited for his baptism on the 9th of August! We are hoping to meet his mom soon so that we can maybe start teaching her! We taught him the Word of Wisdom and the 10 commandments. He's solid. We took the B* Family to the Temple visitor's center on Saturday! It was so nice! The spirit was super strong and it confirmed that this is what they need for their family. We found out Brother B has to go out of town for work for A WHOLE MONTH! so now they are going to be baptized on August 30th, the weekend he get's back. It's sad that we have to wait a whole month, but I know that God has plan for everyone.
Yesterday was awsesome! we had 8 investigators at church! And this random girl, V, and her dad came into our ward. Apparently she was on date to be baptized in the spanish branch but she wants to go to the english ward. So now we are going to be teaching her and hopefully she will be baptized on August 16th! Miracles are happening people.
Hope you have a wonderful week! I love you all!

"K* at the Mission President's devotional"

"TD in the car on the way home!" 

"We were twinning on Saturday!" 
"C* did my hair into a little flower!" 

"We went out with a member, Sister B*, last night! She is SO funny! And reminds me so much of Tay Tay! She has the best laugh and the cutest outfits!"

"Last Monday we had a lesson out on the porch of someone's house at 8pm...bad idea. I got attacked by mosquitoes! They itched so bad. The Lord works in mysterious ways!"

"My comp did my hair!"

"During the big dust/wind storm a tree literally broke! It happens all the time because they are just not used to it." 

"A young woman in our ward came to a lesson. She just moved from Texas!"
