My week started in a thrift shop called "Gypsyland". Pretty snazzy name, right? We went shopping there last Monday, and I found a super cute purple skirt WITH POCKETS for only 19 cents! STEAL! As the lady was ringing my skirt up, she started talking with us and asked questions about what we do as missionaries. As we were talking, she had obviously used the term "Mormons". Another lady looking at clothes near the register, turned around and shouted, "MORMONS?!" She stared at us, then at our name tags, then back to our faces, giving us the most disturbed look. We just looked at her and smiled. It's so sad when people judge you for who they think you are. If only everyone truly understood what we were all about. She then proceeded to strip down so she could try the clothes on she had just taken off the rack. That's DHS for ya! It was comforting to know we weren't the only "crazies" in there.

We threw a surprise birthday party for Elder C--- this week... well, I guess just "birthday party". This Ward isn't very good at keeping secrets. Haha! When the Elders found out, they didn't tell us, they just asked a bunch of weird questions about what we were doing Friday night. Then an hour before the party, they called telling us Elder C--- was being emergency transferred. Of course that was a big, fat lie because they showed up a half-hour early to the party! Those punk faces! Haha! At least we weren't uninvited to this one like we were in La Quinta. We actually had investigators there, so it was all good. It was a great time.
Stake Conference was yesterday, and that was super good! They talked about how important the member's roles are in missionary work. EVERYONE PLEASE WORK WITH YOUR MISSIONARIES!!! You're the reason we get things done. You make missionary work successful and effective. Please just do it, and your missionaries will love you forever. I promise.
