A week in the life...
The weather has been all over the place this week, we've had massive rain storms followed by extreme sun and heat followed by more rain..
Wednesday: brunch and lesson with Kat (she's so solid, I love her so much-shes the best.) Afternoon tea with an older member in our ward (packaged deal includes: being serenaded, 100 cookies, and watching really long videos that her son made at the zoo..fabulous.) to top the night off: ko'olauloa children's chorus (Hawaiian children's concert) with our investigator Andy. So so so fun. 《One of the little Hawaiian boys that sang came up to shake my hand after and smuggled some candy in my hand. So cute! I just wanted to give the little guy a hug but mission rules... all of the performers were so excited to see missionaries! We loved it and Andy absolutely loved how friendly and loving the Hawaiian people are.》
Thursday: met with our recent convert and then went home for our mission-wide wohnung cleaning day. Our apartment had so look much junk built up. (One of the piles of stuff we had to get rid of is pictured below) it feels so nice to have a clean wohnung, and spending the entire day cleaning made it feel even more homey ♡
Friday: finally had time to do our studies! Then we met with another one of our older members who gave us HOT chocolate and cake (it was 95 degrees and humid...but science shows drinking hot drinks actually cools you down...I'd beg to differ.) And then a byu student who is here for an internship took us out for Chinese food, and then she went dooring with us. She's wonderful.
Tusday: we tried to go to a palace but somehow ended up at a freemason museum and just stayed there because we had already walked around for 2 hours trying to find the palace..
There are so many miracles and tender mercies that we see everyday. It's amazing how the Lord's work continues to move forward regardless of the opposition and those who try to stop the work. We may not see dramatic or big changes, but the Lord's work will never stop. As we keep working and digging things will fall into place.
“Ours is not a secondhand religion. We cannot receive the blessings of the gospel merely by observing the good that others do. We need to get off the sidelines and practice what we preach… Now is the time to embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, become His disciples, and walk in His way” -Henry B. Eyring
Embrace the gospel! Do your part! You will be blessed and you will see the Lord's hand in all you do!
