Hello! Hi! Hey!
So, Mom, to answer your question, I did get the package and envelopes before I left! Thank you so much! We have loved being able to make chocolate milk! Thank you thank you! :) We have been using the CD's for Sister Lundin too! We both agree that you are inspired!
Dad, Sister Lundin is wondering if you could be her dad for a few days, so she could play Clair De Lune for you, and then get a car! haha I told her I would pass it on! Also, I am not sure about the Ipad's... either September or December.. I will keep you posted! :)
So, this week was quite the adventure... I will try to describe to you the most eventful 36 hours that we had! Ready? Okay, I will give it a go!
So, all in all, 17 hours in the ER, 6ish hours of sleep in 48 hours, and a companion who has a concussion, and passed a kidney stone!
I have to admit, spending that much time in the ER made me think about Justin a lot! I feel like he would like it there... :)
I don't think I have ever been so sick from pure exhaustion! We came back after it all, and both passed out for a good 5 hours or so which felt so good! Apparently our super was trying to come in and fix some things, but because of our chain on the door, they couldn't get it. They told us they were shouting and banging on the doors. We were so out, we didn't hear it at all. :)
But, through it all, we have definitely learned things! One thing we have learned is to take "What else could go wrong?" Out of our vocabulary completely! Never again am I saying that phrase! Another thing I have learned is the power and importance of the priesthood, and priesthood blessings. We have both received a couple blessings over the past week. Things have been hard, and challenging, and crazy. The blessings that we have received have been a huge staple for both of us. They bring so much peace, and so much comfort! Something neat that has come up in both of the blessings I have received recently has been that Angels are standing around me, supporting me, and helping me. It reminds me of the experience Heidi had! I want to add my testimony to Heidi's (even though she talked about this months ago.. :)) that I know there are people here helping me! I know I have relatives from both sides working with me, and helping me in ways I don't even understand! For that, I am eternally grateful.
SO, now, I can share a funny experience. Something that has been neat is that every time we do get the chance to get out and work, we have good and memorable experiences! We talk to super nice people who hear us out, some express the desire to learn more, others do not, but over all, good and uplifting experiences which we are both so grateful for. We had a funny experience yesterday. We went to drop by a less active member. Their front porch was COVERED in spider webs! I am pretty sure I walked through some... Sister Lundin and I both decided to be brave and to knock on the door anyways. So, we knocked, and were waiting for an answer. While we were just standing there, a spider dropped down right in front of my face! I didn't know whether to laugh, scream, or cry... So, it was kinda a mix of it all.. Instead of just running away, we knocked on the door one more time. The spider just dangled right in front of my face the entire time. I was freaking out. We waited for 30 seconds, and then ran. It gave us something good to laugh about after! I am grateful for experiences like those :)
Well, I hope your week was as great, if not even better than ours! I love this gospel! I love being able to bear my testimony and help others! Keep up the great work! Keep enjoying your summer! We're going to go to Niagara Falls today which is going to be a party! I love you!
Sincerely, the spider loving, official ER hating,
