HOLY THIS WEEK HAS BEEN ONE FOR THE BOOK.
THIS MIGHT JUST MAKE IT ON THE CHARTS FOR THE NUMBER ONE MOST STRESSFUL WEEK IN THE CENTURY OF STRESS EXISTENCE.
So here is the run down
Monday: Monday was hectic. Sister Westover was planning on leaving for Taiwan Tuesday morning but we found out that she had to be at the mission office that night. So we packed all day, cleaned, but then our district leader convinced us to do something with the district so we went to the park. It was a lot of fun. Sister Westover and I made food so we brought it to the park to have a picnic. Then we went and played volleyball. but of course i brought my soccer ball. so these 3 little 10 year old girls want to come play. i played soccer with them and played head/catch. remember that, Hayden? then we started talking about religion. they would sing us a christian song and then we would sing a primary song like i am a child of god. it was awesome and they had great questions. we gave each of them a book of Mormon and a picture of Jesus. Then that night was all traveling and getting settled in Lake Stevens with my new companion Sister Solosko.
Tuesday:We did service in lake stevens and then traveled an hour up to burlington and spent the day there. taught a few lessons and yeah...
Wednesday: Went to district meeting and i had to give instruction. that sucked. i am so bad at that. i can teach a lesson to investigators but to other missionaries... game over. then that night we traveled back down to lake stevens.
Thursday: we did 4 hours of service in her area and then did another lemon"aid" stand. oh and i got a call to be a sister training leader.
Friday: we went to a leadership meeting for me. details coming later and then did another lemon"aid stand and yeah... that was the day. oh and then we traveled to burlington.
Saturday: we went to trail builders, weekly planned... blah blah blah and then that night was the awful night... i get a call and 8:58 saying that our area is getting a new companionship of missionaries. boo. so hopefully nobody gets lost or anything like that. but it will all be okay.
Sunday: went to church, said goodbye to whoever was there, and then stopped at Mya, Amy, and Zoe's. those were the only people. then we traveled to lake stevens where we went to pick up sister howlett because her companion was going home. it's been a week.
Monday: that's today... and that's all...
Tuesday (tomorrow): I am getting a new area. boo. I am getting a new companion. That's exciting. I am a Sister Training Leader. That's nerve racking. so yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
i am a sister training leader. so i get assigned companionships of sisters. i go on exchanges with them and have to fill out forms to give to president. i am someone they can counsel to. i have to help when they are struggling and stuff like that. so yeah. i am really grateful to have this opportunity and i want to do it well so prayyyyy for me!!!!!!!! ;)
i love you all. thanks for all the love and support. keep on keeping on. #holdtotherodda
oh something i have learned this week is: YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. SO FEAST UPON THE WORDS OF CHRIST. that's all.
love, sister rodda.
