This week has gone by so fast!
On Monday, we had Sister’s P-day with our zone. We all brought pumpkins andice cream and ate ice cream and painted pumpkins. It was really fun to be withall the Sisters and to talk with them! (pictures to come)
We had a lesson with this cute lady named Patricia, she reminds me of mom. We had a member out with us and we were walking up to her door. She ranoutside and told us we couldn't meet with her because her husband wouldn't allow it. (those dang husbands) We asked her if she read the pamphlet we left with her and she said no she didn't because when she walked inside her husband took it from her and ripped it up. I wanted to go in there and slap him, what a Meany head. But I didn't. Thank Goodness.
We met Dre Fogg, the one that was referred to us by other missionaries. He is a 10 year old boy with serious ADHD but is so funny and cute. He wants to be baptized so bad. His dad is covered in tattoos head to toe, literally. He is very nice though and is so supportive and wants his son to be baptized. He has a son that is 12 and he was already baptized. They came to church yesterday and seemed to really enjoy it. We are hoping to get Dre baptized on Sunday, but we are still waiting to hear from bishop. Cross your fingers it’s on Sunday!!
David Miller is going to the temple for the first time this Saturday!! He is doing baptisms for the dead and is going to baptize is brother and dad that have past away. He is so excited and doesn't stop talking about it. We are so excited for him:)
We had Zone Conference on Thursday. Everyone wore pink because we just found out that our mission President’s wife has breast cancer. She is the sweetest lady ever. We had a great zone conference and I learned a lot.
We got these little black boxes installed in our car. I am not sure if you have ever heard of them, but they are pretty much like going through simulators in drivers ed all over again. It tells you if you’re going too fast and if you're driving too crazy and if your seat belt isn't on. It will give you a warning (verbally) and then it will dock
you points the next time you do it. After each transfer, it will rank you, and if you're not driving good, they will take your driving privilege away from you. haha its kind of funny. Thank goodness I am not the designated driver yet, so I don't have to worry about that for awhile.
I will be finding out on Saturday about transfers if I am leaving or not. If you are sending anything, don't send after Wednesday because if I am getting transferred, I wont be able to get it. If you want to send something and it is too late, just send it to the mission home and I will get it sooner or later. I will let you know for sure next Monday if I will be staying or going!
Scripture for the week: Matthew 21:22- its all about prayer, if we pray and believe we will receive our answer, we will. God will never leave us without an answer. We just need to have faith in him and really listen for our answer. I love ya’ll so much. Thank you for your love and support. Ya’ll are so amazing. Have a wonderful week :)
Love Sister Brooks
