JUNE 30, 2014

gonna be honest with ya, not a ton happened this week. it was pretty slow with transfers and stuff, and we had this weird thing go on with being in a trio for 3 days with Elder Blakely because his companion went home. So, we actually worked in TWO areas from monday-thursday morning, so we taught quite a few lessons in spanish this week! It was pretty interesting...i didn't understand a whole lot haha. by the way, my trainer, elder wright, finished his mission last week! he's gone, he's back home in idaho, how crazy is that?!! ahhhh
okay, so the coolest thing ever happened this week. although just about all our lessons cancelled, and the "M" family was out of town so we couldn't teach them, this made everything alright....

I was sitting in the chapel yesterday and the meeting is about to start in like 5 minutes, and as i'm sitting there, i look over at the door and see BROTHER JUSTIN KENDALL WALKING THROUGH THE DOOR! I did a double take and was like no way, no way, there's no way that's brother kendall. so i freaked out and jumped up and ran towards him and gave him a big hug and he was like "oh man, we were definitely steered here; we weren't even going to come to this building, but we couldn't find the other building so we ended up here!" (or something like that). so we chatted for a bit and talked, and then sister kendall and the kids walked in after that! man it was so cool to talk to them. They were saying they were thinking about moving to this part of San Antonio, not necessarily the Parkwood ward, but somewhere around there. I was definitely trying to sell them on moving into my ward haha. they're so great. just imagine, any of you return missionaries reading this...imagine your favorite member family from your first area of your mission just walking through the doors of your chapel when you're serving in an area like 40 miles away, and you hadn't even talked to them in months. it was the most mindblowing thing ever, i couldn't believe it happened haha. so so cool.
this week on wednesday i had the opportunity to go to the temple..all i can say it was amazing. the new video was incredible. i just, ahh. i learned so much and it's just the spiritual recharge i needed. after a while of being on the mission and being exhausted and doing the same thing, sometimes it gets hard. but after going to the temple it rekindled the fire i was so great. i'm so grateful that i live near the temple so that i was able to attend it.

thank you guys so much for all your support and letters! i love you all, have a great week!
