MERRY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 'MURICA!
The fourth was amazing! I had such a fun time! We went with the Zone Leaders down to Moore for a festival! It reminded me a lot of the Weiser Fiddle Festival. We got there at about 2 and were there till about 10:30. (President Walkenhorst gave us permission to stay out to 11!!! woohoo) We had a booth up at the festival and the whole time we just talked to people and passed out pamphlets and book of mormons. It was so cool! It was HOT!!! and the food looked sooo good but it was all too expensive. We met this lady (who gave me the inspiration for my email title) who called herself "rapping granny". And that is legitimately what she was. This old lady who raps gospel music! We asked her to rap for us and she started rapping!!!! It was hilarious!!! "You're a chosen generation, a chosen generation. You're a chosen generation, chosen for Salvation!" That was the whole thing. She just said that over and over for about 3 minutes. It was awesome! I have to say she was probably one of the coolest people I met that day!
The firework show that they put on was pretty amazing! I was just so happy that I actually got to see fireworks!!! I had a ton of fun and got to see and hang out with some of the coolest people!
The rest of the week was pretty normal and calm.
Monday: We had a family night with a family in the ward. Their little girls are so stinking cute!
Tuesday: We decided to fast this day. We have had a really hard time the past little bit because no one was home and no one was answering the doors. So we decided to fast today to get into homes and have lessons with people. It was so cool! Pretty much every single door that we knocked opened and all of our appointments went through (which hadn't been happening either). We got to meet with Esteban (LA), Mirium's friend (I), Lydia (LA), Loani (I), and Flor (I)!! IT was so amazing. All the lessons went amazing.
Wednesday: We went and visited Evangelina. She is this little old lady that lives in an assisted living home. The people there all know the misisonaries because we come over often enough. Let me tell you though, old people are hilarious!!!!
Thursday: We got into a little bit of bumper to bumper action on the way home, but no one was hurt so that is what is important! We also got to meet a less active for the first time! His name is Jesus Herrera. He is super funny! The whole time he just called us his little angels.
Friday: District meeting! Elder Cummings asked us to pray for trails...... What?! I know that it is a little crazy, but I know that I am going to learn so much from it and it will bless me so much!
Saturday: 4th of July! Moore Festival and Rapping Granny
Sunday: We presented our branch mission plan to the branch and it went amazing! IT was so awesome! I am so excited to see the growth come as we fulfill this branch plan! We also had a lesson with this lady Liliana. I was super duper nervous. When we first started talking to us she was super hostile. As we kept talking you could see her heart softening. It was so cool. By the end of the lesson we had given her a book of mormon and she already started reading it!!! We didn't even have to ask her to read it at the end of the lesson. She committed herself to read it! It was super duper cool!
Miracles are real and we see them everyday. We just have to have the eyes to see them.
Love you all!!!
