Mediocre Week

Hey all, 

I don't have too much time today, but I want to share something from our Relief Society lesson we had yesterday.  
15 ways to be happy :)

1. Love your choice
2. Gain unshakable faith
3. Spend meaningful time with those you love
4. Do with what you have
5. Have faith in yourself
6. Maintain Integrity
7. Prioritize your desires
8. Remember what matters most
9. Be what you want to become
10. Be kinder
11. Don't whine
12. Know and Do
13. Persist
14. Exercise meekness
15. Remain Faithful!

I have personally experienced many of these this past week. Especially with one of our investigators dropping us. It was very sad, but she wants us to come back in the fall... APPLE SEASON. YOU'RE KILLING OUR WORK!
All is well here in East Wenatchee.  We are working our best, with lots of meetings, and many tender mercies. We have a potential investigator, who was dropped before I got here, and who we went back to and visited with. She wants us to come back and eat with her!  We are so excited!  Our goal this week is to have Evonne on date for baptism this week on Wednesday when we eat with her. She is so, so sweet, and we look forward to helping her progress. 

Talking to my parents yesterday was so awesome!  I'm so glad I was able to Skype with them and catch up.
We had a service project on Wednesday to help a group of humanitarian workers lay sod, and since then, my arms have never been the same... both good and bad!  Neither my lower back.  It was so much fun to be with almost our whole zone.  We helped lay sod for a whole yard in 4 hours.  That's called teamwork!  I absolutely love my zone and when we have service opportunities!  It's wonderful to have this opportunity to serve with these awesome missionaries. 

We went back and visited Evonne and she offered us Horchata... Yeah!  Almost couldn't have it, until she said it was lactose free!  She saved my life that day, literally!

A recent convert's sister and mother forced us to take some Mexican chocolate home with us because we try to visit with him almost every week.  We also had an activity to get our less active Spanish group members to come out and visit by watching The Testaments in Spanish. We had one AMAZING family show up, and it was great. This week we are having a car wash with our less actives.  We are getting that base ready for the Spanish branch!  We have amazing members who come out with us everyday to help us teach.  We may not get many lessons when we have them out with us, but we try everyday!

Love you all.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, might, mind and strength!

As for the pictures, we are having a blast!
