Another week in the EBM aka Earth's Best Mission

6 May 2013
HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO yesterday!! Thanks for the visual of food dad! Ahhhhh Its killing me- I want some green chili so bad!! haha But yesterday we had a DA at an American families house, and they remeber Cinco De Mayo and made English "Mexican" food! haha Didnt taste much like mexican food but it was the thought that counted! Tara Jo- Those pictures are adorable! Everyone huddled over me at our zone Pday today and ohhhed and ahhed on my two handsome boys! Im so glad ty loved his card and their is hope that they both remeber me! I love that! But Im glad Ty had a fun birthday party and way to suprise Dev! Sounds like Fun!
This week has been a building and learning but really good week! This week we didn't teach much at all- all of our lessons got flogged unfortunatly. But I have hope that in the next 18 months I will be able to teach my "first" first lesson in the mission, all of our lessons so far have been flogged, but I guess the Lord just wants to teach my patienece! And slowly Im learning to have patience as a missionary!
Mom is everyone getting my emails- and can you get me Brindy's and Olivia's email address?? Also, I can use Cd's we have a DVD player that we watch the district on that we can listen to Cd's or USB's also work whatever is up to you! Thanks SOOO much for the package! Made my week when I went to the mission home and got it! Good work on the scarf- way cute and I have gotten many compliments on it! so Thank you and that was the best smashed Fig newton in the world! Really- and were did you find that cute bag of Chocolate Covered Palmogranets! So cute and soooo good! and thank you for all the great letters!
This week we have seen some incredible miracles: that is one of the coolest things in missionary work is to be able to see miracles every day! We taught this random lesson with this lady we found on the street who left and then turned around and came back to us and she lived in the craziest, dirtiest, smelliest, covered in laundry, and her crazy partner in his bathrobe but the spirit was so strong as I shared a scripture on the atonement and testified that the Saviour (UK spelling, I really can still spell) knows how she feels. But it was a really cool expereince! We also met some really cool potentials this week by following the promptings of the spirit on who to stop and talk to who are totally out of our way- they all strengthening my testimony of the Lord's hand in missionary work! It is so cool!  I took the train to Birmingham this week on Friday for a trainers follow up meeting and got to see Everyone who was in the MTC with and it was sooooo great! We seriously sprinted across the train station and embraced in handshakes! It was so good to see everyone in my district! We were the biggest group to enter into the mission and still am until June! Pretty Cool! Awwww I loved it and such a great meeting- and we got post that got sent to the mission home so even better! But it was so fun to see everyone! Im glad you got to talk to Sister Rasmussen, she is so great and they are seriously like parents to all of us missionaries!
Remeber the 17 year old who's mum and sister passed away- he has been impossible to stop by and actually see, we have tried over 7 times, and we finally got a hold of him and set up an appointment! So its pretty exciting and have such a good feeling about him! This week we did a lot of service, and I basicall rebuilt a shelf for this man in our ward who has some health problems and he loves to talk to us, it was the man who we sang a song too once- just me and Sister Obies Sanchez....a bit awkard, but hey that is the name closet to describe missionary work!
Derek is in New  Hampshire! What the heck I had no idea! But im excited for Derek to finally get to the feild- Derek send me your emails pleaseeee! Love you but please! But when will you go to Argentina- I wish you were reassigned to England! That would be awesome and we could be companions again!
Today we had a Zone Pday and it was so much fun! We had a vollyball tournament, played some ultimate frisbee, some rugby, and just hung out and ate chocolate- story of our lives here in England! The cholcolate is so much better here than in America! Sorry to say! But it was a blast, and fun to see everyone- there were probably about 35 elders and us 4 sisters ;) way to represent Sisters!
I get to skype this Sunday! I cant wait- Dad your not gonna be there!? Bummer!! Your leaving saturday morning! But Dad maybe I can call you?! Ill see what I can do! I sure hope so but have fun in Hava Supi- Im jeaolous and take lots of pictures and email them to me! But Sunday unless things change- Ill probably skype around 6 oclock which means about 10 oclock there! Sorry dumb time chagnge- but ill give your email to the person I am skyping with and email your name to her- any questions ask TJ, when in doubt just ask him! But I cant wait to see your faces! Maybe we could even work out a three way skype with some of my other favorite people! We will see:) But all is welll here! Mom- one thing I would LOVEEE is if you would send me a few deodorant sticks- they dont sell powedered Dove deodorant here- only gross spray stuff- that is all i want for my birthday haha! But we will talk on Sunday! I cant wait! Home sounds great and mom congrats on your new calling- it is an inportnant calling and you will do soooo well! Love you all and thanks for all you do for me!
