Week 20

This week was a good one but also a little long!  Tuesday was great!  In the evening we were able to meet a less-active member that I tried seeing back when I was with Sister Heap!  She has been in the ward since June, but hasn't been to church since then.  And she has been less-active for about 15 years.  But she was very friendly and told us that we could come back so we were excited about that!  It was more hopeful than some of the other responses that we get! :) Then Wednesday we were able to have a lesson with Sister Krutsch's grandparents that are less-active who were in town for Spring Training!  So that was exciting and was a very good lesson!  I hope they continue to become re-activated when they return home!  Then Thursday we visited a widow in our ward who has got an amazing missionary spirit to her!  She is amazing!  She has come up with a plan to go out proselyting by herself!  She just makes us happy and lifts us up!  Then on Friday we went to the church building by the mission office to juice 15 bags of orange juice that the sisters in our apartment had picked off of someone's tree!  It was really fun and was a nice break from the monotonous missionary work that we do every day!  Not that I don't love it, it is just always good to have a break and do something different!  Then Saturday we got to go to the temple with Sister Wauneka who was able to receive her own endowment for the first time!  It was so fun and we loved having the opportunity to be there with her!  I also got to see Sister Heap because she was the escort since she had first started talking to Sister Wauneka back in September!  Then we got transfer news and Sister Krutsch would be sent to Paradise Valley with Sister Tucker and I would receive Sister Hogenson!  So that was exciting I guess!  Then Sunday Maria didn't come to church again so we will be hopefully setting another date for her and figuring out what is holding her back.  Then we were able to go to a ward event of Break the Fast that the ward does every other fast Sunday so it was nice to get to know some of the members a little better!  Then Monday we practiced singing because we are going to try a new finding activity tomorrow!  I will explain later!  Then we helped a less-active organize her shelves!  Then Tuesday was transfers, so here is a little on Sister Hogenson:  She is 20 years old and is from Calgary, Alberta Canada.  She is the 9th child of 12 children and has 10 brothers and a sister.  She is an absolute sweetheart and I am very excited for this upcoming transfer!  I love you all and hope you have a fantastic rest of the week!!
