This week was the best one yet!
First of all, it was my Momma's birthday! Happy Birthday, Mommy! Secondly, I had the greatest birthday weekend! I turned two decades old. The big two-zero. Next week, I'll be two months old on my mission! Oh my golly! So let me tell you a little bit why it was so dang awesome!
We got to meet and talk to a lot of people at the event, so lots of people knew who we were. Sometimes, we would take breaks and get something to eat, and all we would hear was, "Hey Sisters!" or "It's the sister missionaries! Here's some free food!" We got more attention than Bill Clinton! Don't worry, we're going to baptize him next.
As we were volunteering, a man came up to me and asked if there was a card he could have. "Sure! Here you go!"
"Great, thanks! Can I find your number on it?" he asked, pointing at me.
Sorry sir, it's not as cute when you're twice my age.
The best part was when he turned around to look at S---.
"Oh, sorry. You're too young for me."
She's only about two months younger than I am.
Later that day, we celebrated my birthday at the Walker's house! I love them! They're like my La Quinta mission parents. They surprised me with a birthday sign, a gift card, and an ice cream cake! I also got a gift card and a stuffed bear from an investigator, D---, and then G--- got me a new purse and a scarf! Not to mention, my awesome companion also made me a sign and made me waffles for breakfast! Oh my word! So much stuff! People are way too generous!
As I've been on my mission, serving others is just so natural. I'm still working on it, but I've also learned to act outward. When we act inward, it becomes all about us. It's not that at all, it is all about the Savior. So forget yourself, and go help someone out!
Hope you're all doing well! I still love letters, so tell me how your lives are going!
Miss and love you all!
