Week #72 - 2016 Apr 15 - T-6 Months Until Conference! #oct2016 #ldsconf #best

Hey y'all!!
So this past week was alright...Nothing really to complain about. It just wasn't the BEST week. But hey, that's okay because we gotta have rough weeks to appreciate the good things. That's why there's opposition in all things! We HAVE to have bad so we can know, understand, and love the good. :)
Monday: We went shopping! Had some good retail therapy. It was much's just refreshing to have some new clothes....haha. And then we tried contacting a few people but they weren't home. #storyofourlives....
Tuesday: We saw Verlinda! We read some Joseph Smith History with her and she loved it. She's awesome! I just love her a ton! And then we saw Ken, and he's doing really well. We're trying to get him to church and one day he'll get there. Just keep praying for him!! We talked about why we have commandments that night. And then we asked if he had prayed specifically about the Book of Mormon yet and he said he hadn't but he said he would do it that night. And just to be sure! I felt impressed to ask him to pray about the Book of Mormon while we were there. He was a little leery about it, but he did it anyway! We were proud of him anddd and and! We got to experience a little miracle. That was THE most sincere prayer that Ken has ever given! I mean he always has great prayers, but this one was amazing. He's progressing so well. he just needs to come to church dang it!!!! And ps! Our washer and dryer finally came in today! We were literally so excited hahaha :D
Wednesday: District Meeting. It was actually really good today! And our district is getting progressively less awkward #tendermerciesofthelord. So that was good. We had to give the car to the one of walking. Haha so we walked over to our next appointment! We had a lesson with our investigator Deborah and it went well! We read from the Book of Mormon with her and she got excited because things were coming back to her memory. Fun fact, she had apparently investigated the church some 40 years ago when she was a teenager. So! She got super excited when she started remembering some things that we were reading!! And after that we walked over to our less active, Timberley's house so we could have a visit with her, which was good!
Thursday: We weekly planned and then I didn't feel too well. So we took it easy. #lamesauce
Friday: We didn't finish weekly planning because I like died..hahaha so we finished that today and we cleaned the apartment a little bit and made it more live-able haha. And then! BEST PART OF THE WHOLE ENTIRE WEEK! The guys finally came to INSTALL OUR WASHER AND DRYER!!!!! YAYAYAYAY. HALLELUJAH! We've only been staring at them since Tuesday and getting more and more impatient with the people coming to install them. Buttttt, we survived! And they were finally ready to use! YAY. Best day ever. So that was cool. :)
Saturday and Sunday: CONFERENCE!!!! BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE! I literally get so excited for Conference it's ridiculous haha I've had a countdown going since like December. Lol. Anywho. It was definitely worth the wait. It was EXACTLY what I needed to hear :) Our investigator, Angela came to the Saturday morning session and I think it was perfect for her. She said she LOVED it and she wanted to come to the other sessions, but things came up and she couldn't :( But! She still came to one and that's what counts! Ken said that he would watch a session of conference we'll ask him that this week when we see him haha :) But wow, talk about overflow of the spirit!!!! #spiritoverdose. <3 <3 <3 I gotta say, Elder Holland's talk was my all time favourite it was perfect. And I needed it a ton. :) Now the countdown begins for next conference in October!!!!!
I hope you all had a good week! And I hope you have a GREAT week this upcoming week! :D I love you all so much and y'all are always in my prayers. Thanks for all your love and support and I want you all to know that the gospel is TRUE. I received SO MANY spiritual confirmations on so many things this weekend and my heart is overflowing with truth and the knowledge that I KNOW that this IS the Jesus Christ's church once again established on the earth today! Hallelujah! We are so blessed to be a part of it. Now let's share this great truth with others so they can feel blessed too!! 
I love you, I miss you, and guess what, the church is true!
Take care! Keep smiling! And make good choices!!!

PS - I started ponderizing again!!! Mosiah 16:9. Christ's light will never go out. We can always rely on Him to help us out of whatever darkness we are facing. <3

New clothes. was just much needed.....hahah. #RossFTW
Literally the comfiest clothes ever
Tuesday. When we got the washer and dryer......

Thursday. When they still weren't installed...... Haha
accurate depiction of what we were feeling inside.....
Friday. When they FINALLY installed them!!!
And we were able to wash our clothes!!!! YAYAYAY.
So we had this doll...Named Tina. Super freaky. One of the
members in Sister Streetman's last areas gave it to her and said
that it reminded her of Sister Streetman. (EVEN MORE CREEPY)

So we "discarded" of Miss Tina...But first we had to
take pictures with her. Obviously. #basicwhitegirls ;)
Sorry about my foot and bag.....#faceholethingfail. Buttt you can only do so much
when your camera is balancing on a second story balcony railing on the self timer ;)
