This week was just so much fun! Our week began with our trek up to Sugar Land on Monday night. We stayed with the S Family. It was so much fun because when we got there we had a game night until it was time to go to bed. We played Wackee 6. We need to play this when I get home. It is a really fast paced card game that you can play with up to 6 people...so thank you Kyle for making us 7. Just kidding. Sorry I pick on you so much. I don't even know you :) Anyways it was so nice of them to let us be part of their family for the night.
We had a 6am session at the temple so it was an early morning. The session was great and I was able to finish the work for Mary Badgett. I know she is on Mom's side but I am not exactly sure who she is. But it was nice to take her through the Endowment. After the session we weren't able to have a study. Salt Lake pulled the plug on those unfortunately. At least I was blessed with 2 in the past. We went outside and took lots of pictures with the zones and districts. It was a fun day and of course it is always a treat to go to the temple.
We also got to go to a pumpkin patch with our investigator M and her son J. It was a last minute thing but it was so great. We just walked around and took some pictures. It is starting to feel a little like fall here. The humidity is mostly gone for now but the temps are mostly still in the 90s. But I can't complain, this is the best time of year in Texas.
We got to do service at a local soup kitchen called Christ's Kitchen. It is called that because different denominations run it everyday of the week. The Mormons have Wednesday :) It is completely service run which is so neat. They provide lunch every day of the week! We served with the Elders and a member of the ward. We just do food serving and then we get to eat with them as well. The people are so kind! I felt the Spirit so strongly just being there among them all. People are very gracious and I just love it. We also were back at Sister M's house 2 mornings this week. Her home looks so different it is incredible. I love when you get to see a project all the way through. All her rooms are neat and clean and most everything is all packed up and getting ready to go.
Other than service we have been hitting the streets trying to share the Good News. We got a few good potentials this week and this area is starting to look up. We made it a goal to baptize someone before I leave and our trio is disbanded. While trying to talk to everyone we started walking in a neighborhood. We came across this guy who cut his lawn in an awesome design...so we went to the door to compliment him on it. Turned out they were Buddhist but they let us pray with them. The next house happened to be the owner of a the long time Victoria favorite Coral restaurant. Super cool. You just never know who you are going to meet out here. These girls are so awesome and willing to work. We know how to make the work fun! They wont let me get trunkie at all :) The only trunkie talk we have had all week was when we were helping a woman put together her 50th wedding anniversary party invites. It was only appropriate to talk about weddings ;)
Trying to make the best with the time that is left. It doesn't feel like I am on my last transfer. Before we know it I will be back!
This week I am ponderizing Hebrews 4:16. What about y'all?
I love you :)
