Ready to hear about the longest week of my life?
So it started out with me stepping in wet concrete.. We were walking out of our complex to go visit some people across the street and of course I stepped in a random pile of wet concrete!
After that we were walking down the street and ran into a couple and their son who said "are you on your way back from trying to visit us?" Sister Cheyne and I looked at each other and said "who are you?" She said she was a member of the church and that she wanted us to start teaching her husband so he can get baptized because they want to to be sealed in the temple! We were so excited and they are so ready! So now we have an awesome family we are teaching!
We continued to walk and we were so excited about what had just happened and I was trying to put the information about our next teaching appointment into my iPad when I was inches away from stepping on a DEAD DUCK. There was just a random dead duck in the middle of the sidewalk..
Then I was trying to see if I had gotten all of the concrete off of my shoe and almost fell into a busy road..
After that we were able to visit a less active family and play with a kitten! The mom is actually allergic to cats and their vacuum had broken so we offered to bring our vacuum over the next day and vacuum for her so she could have some relief from the cat hair in the house. When we went over the next day, the kitten was trying to bite her daughter's face and then was attacking Sister Cheyne so I was trying to keep the cat from them and as a result of that I got my hand all torn up..
The next day we went over to another less active's home and I asked her if we could meet her dog because we never got to and I love dogs.. She said okay and went and got the dog.. The dog apparently has a licking problem and wanted to lick my face and over shot.. So she hit my nose really hard with her open mouth... And now my nose hurts...
So that was my fun week..
Then we got to see President Nelson! It was such an amazing spiritual experience and he helped me with a lot of questions that I had. I love being a missionary and being able to be around amazing people!
I also got to meet my Cousin Elder Heppler!
And I got to see an old member.
Love you all!
