Hope y'all had a great day so far, and that you're awake. I know I could use more sleep, but we all know as a missionary....hah that's something that you don't get while on your mission. But it's all good.
This week was killer!! We had some pretty interesting events happen.
Sooo, in short, sister Agnir was sick, and had this really bad pain in her chest. Me and sister Miller thought it was because of her asthma, and she was shaking to. But our ward mission leader is a doctor, so that night he came and did a checkup. Me and sister Miller got a chance to go and try some less actives and also recent converts.
We met with a less active, and she's awesome, and really into crafts and doing little crafts. She also makes handmade invitations to weddings and birthdays. She's making these little paper houses, super cute.
The square in Franklin had a tree lighting thing, and a bunch of people all packed tight like sardines in one place. It was good, we saw a few faces that we know. Heh
Sunday was good, it was also sister miller's last Sunday as a missionary. She's going on Thursday. It was good. I've been asking her questions on what to expect when I go home. Just so I can prepare myself for saying goodbyes.
Sso, we ate dinner at a our ward mission leaders home the other day, and we ate some traditional Philippine food....on banana leafs. Hehe it's call pancit (noodle stuff) lumpia (egg roll things) it was super good, and we had to eat with our fingers. hehe it was really Good, and it was super fun to eat.
We had lunch with an old friend, Allison from Springhill, she took us to lunch and one last goodbye to sister Miller. We also had district meeting, and interviews with President Stone. Fun fun fun!!!
OK, so we had this real good lesson with one of the members friends from school. Jo went tracting with us a couple of days ago, and we ran into his friend. Anyways long story short, his lesson was yesterday, and at first, he was not there... And jo was really excited, he even fasted for this lesson. It made me think, am I taking lessons too light hearted? Here's this teenager, planning on going on a mission, and first lesson with his friend, so excited, and he fasted. I didn't fast, I didn't see it as that big of a deal to fast, it was just another lesson. That day, jo taught me a vary important lesson, ever single person, no matter who, is worth Fasting for, is worth that extra attention, and love. And not a missionary on auto pilot.
This week went by fast, to the closing of it, sister Miller had the chance to go around to some ward members and say goodbye. Vary emotional day yesterday. But good.
Well y'all, that's it for today, thanks for tuning in!!
