Week 93 - Columbia Tennessee

Hola mi familia!

This week was great! The most memorable thing was definitely zone conference. My mission President was speeding through his trainings in the morning and kept saying he had a lot of ground to cover, so I thought it was just going to be a super long conference of just getting loaded with trainings. But then after lunch, instead of continuing, we set up our chairs on front of the stage and one of our senior office missionaries did a one man play. He is actually super talented and it was quite funny. It’s called the Farley family reunion and he does the part of everyone in the family. Then after we went into the chapel and the Nashville tribute band was sitting up on the stand. So we got kinda a musical fireside from them and it was awesome. It was definitely one of my favorite zone conferences haha.

Other than that, the works been continuing. We found out that Christian, a son from a part member family that we’ve been working with and set a baptismal date for June 16th, is actually a child of record baptism and so he will have to wait until July 7 at a stake baptism. It was a little sad, but he’s getting baptized so still good!

That’s it for the week!

Love y’all!

Week 91 - Columbia Tennessee

Hola mi familia!

So I forgot to write this until 5 minutes before 6 so sorry it’s going to be a quick one.

We didn’t get to see Adrian at church this week or meet with him. So hopefully some better luck this week. Lariza finally made it to church and stayed all 3 hours.

We also had one of our investigators reach out to us and ask us to come over and visit his member family that was going through a hard time. That was pretty cool.

Well I’m doing good, I promise I’ll write a little more next week!

Love y’all!

Week 90 - Columbia Tennessee

Hola mi familia!

Not gonna lie, it gets harder and harder to write these. I feel like I’m saying the same things every time, haha. But that’s probably just on my end. But I’ll keep writing them to make my parents happy:)

This week, while I was on exchanges with an English Elder. We were working in Spanish, so I was riding solo. But we got a referral from another area of a guy who wanted to meet with us. He was a really cool guy. He is blind, so It was interesting to teach him. I realized how much I depend on visual aids when I teach. But it still went great.

Then last Friday we got to cook for a member family, and it went great. We made Hawaiian teriyaki chicken skewers and then I made som orange Julius for dessert. It was a hit. It was nice to be able to cook for the members for a change haha.

We are working with a few investigators, one of them is an 8 year old from a returning less active family. It’s fun trying to keep his attention haha.

But that’s about it for this week. We found out that we are going to stay the same another transfer. So I’ll most likely be ending here. I’m super excited to see what the next 3 months have in store.:)

Love y’all!

Week 89 - Columbia Tennessee

Hola mi familia!

Well this week seemed to just fly by. We decided to go to Franklin for church this week, so we could start to meet all the people that could come out to teach with us up there. And it was really good. We have a good idea of all the Spanish speaking members up there, so we will most likely be working there more often.

Then after church, Bro Smoot, our now ward mission leader in the Franklin ward, smoked us some ribs. It was by far the best meal I've had on the mission. Best part is it was cooked by someone who's only been here for a year from Utah and he cooked better BBQ than I've had the whole two years. But I definitely picked up a few tricks of cooking ribs and chicken on a smoker from him.

We also had zone conference this week and the focus was in getting investigators to church. And after talking about the blessings and reasons we clone to church for a few hours, it really made me think about how much u really do love going to church and how much it has changed me. And that now makes it easier to relate it to people to invite them to come.

Otherwise we've been working hard still with all our peeps. We still haven't met with Adrian because of work, but he keeps saying he wants to get baptized. But we need to meet with him one more time, then have an interview for him. So it can't happen till after that. We're going to make that clear to him the next time we talk so that hopefully it's easier to set up a time.

But that's about it for the week!

Love yall!
