Expect the Unexpected

San BernarDINO
Dear friends and family,

First of all, Happy Father's Day to all those superhero daddy's out there, especially my own! Love you, Pops!

Wow, it's been a crazy week!

This week, the temperature has been ranging from 100-104 degrees. I'm so lucky to not be in the desert anymore, it's 120! How do you live? My blood would boil and my skin would melt right off my bones! Sorry for the graphic image, but it's true!

Monday, we got a call from the AP's, telling us we needed to move out of our apartment because another one was shutting down! Ugh...I don't like packing. But I hear they're pretty nice apartments. Maybe we'll actually have our very own washer and dryer. That would be nice because it gets expensive. We'll be moving in with the hermana's this coming week.

Wednesday, we got to go to the temple and do an endowment session! I think President is allowing us to go twice a year. I feel lucky, it used to only be once a year.

Thursday evening, we got a call from the AP's again, telling us that Sister T--- would be going home the next morning for some health problems, so her companion, Sister Nellie R---, would be staying with us. So, yes, I am in a trio! It's fun having her in our companionship, but it's hard because now we're all in charge of three areas! She covers two areas in the mountains, and we cover one huge area which includes four cities down the hill and three up. So all together we basically cover about half of southern California...or it seems that way, anyway. Talk about STRESS.

Friday, we went up the mountain to get some more of Sister R---'s things. It is so beautiful up there, and the temperature is perfect in the summer, but Sister P--- and I got so sick from the elevation. Guess we better toughen up, we'll be going up a lot more for the next four weeks. Sister R--- will be going home after this transfer. It's been a real weird last transfer for her.

Fun Fact: Sister P--- has been out for 13 months, and has had 11 companions! She has never had a companion for more than one transfer...except for me! :) That's right, breaking records and all. Transfer number two, and still going strong! 

Saturday, we had Zone Conference, aaannnddd.........WE GOT OUR i-PADS!!! WOOHOO!! :) Moving up in the world! If you couldn't tell, we are very excited! The best part is we each individually get to have our own! We don't have to share them like we do with our dinosaur phones. AND we get to take them home with us! YIPPEEE! I'm feeling pretty spoiled. I'll let you know when we get Facebook. The Lord really is hastening His work. One thing we all have to remember though is the i-Pad is just a tool. The i-Pad does not have the Holy Ghost, and i-Pad cannot baptize. Therefore, we are not an i-Pad mission. They are just tools to help us with the work. 

Also on Saturday, T--- had her baptismal interview! She's getting baptized this Saturday! :) She was so prepared, we are very excited for her! Please pray for her, Satan knows the best times to attack, even on the strongest people.

Sunday, we had four investigators come to church; T---, B---, J---, and C---! After a long, crazy, stressful week, that was a beautiful blessing and miracle.

So that was my adventurous week. Hope all is going well in the land of "normal."
