Rest in Peas

Why hello, my cute friends and family!

Here's the scoop on this week.


Monday, we had dinner with our Ward Mission Leader, Lorenzo. His mom made these really yummy tostadas. Into my third bite, I noticed that little green monster. "Umm...Are there peas on this?"
Everyone's eyes got real big. "Oh no, don't tell me you're allergic to peas!" Lorenzo responded. He felt so bad, and made me another plate with everything but peas. It was kinda scary when I could start to feel my throat swell up a little. Thankfully, the swelling went down before too long. So glad it wasn't like my first experience. That was just terrible.


These past few weeks have been great, but also so exhausting! We are constantly going up and down the hill; it takes so much out of you. The nice thing is if we're doing a lot of work in the mountains, we
stay in Sister Robert's condo and drive the Jeep. So we have an apartment and a condo, and a Jeep and a Corolla. So we have like a billion miles to spare. Covering three wards, Northpark, Lake Arrowhead, and Running Springs, has been interesting too. We've been going to two different wards every week. I guess President doesn't think three hours is long enough.


There's this kid, John, that we've been teaching, who has been investigating the church for two years! Some of the members already thought he was a member and asked us why we were teaching him the
lessons. Haha! We've had some pretty awesome lessons with him. Our favorite is when he taught us back the Restoration. It was so powerful, we knew we needed to put him on date. But instead of us
putting him on date, we asked him when he thought he would be ready to be baptized. He chose July 18! Perfect timing before transfers and before Sister Roberts goes home! Everyone is so excited and so proud of him. :)

That's all folks! Have a marvelous week! Love you all!
