Well another crazy week that goes by in like 5 minutes. I have almost been out 3 months and it feels like days no joke.
 Monday was Pday of course and we watched more Disney movies 😁 love my president just saying.  We had dinner at a members home it was Filipino food and it was delicious! Then we saw our less active who hurt herself.  She is so much fun to be around.
   Tuesday we saw a sister who we are trying to get to the temple and she was okay. She is still struggling with her husband but we are supporting her as much as possible. Hopefully they will be at the temple this month. We went to Savage for dinner which was also delicious.  Then we had ward coordination like every Tuesday and saw another less active who has been having health issues and unable to come to church. We feel bad for her and the doctors are running more tests soon.
 Wednesday we did a family history hour and learned how to index from a member and she is so funny.  Love going to their home.  We saw our less active we see like everyday and read with her. She has improved a lot this past month or so. We taught seminary which we only teach one more time before they are done.  Sad time love teaching the students here.
    Thursday was weekly planning which is always fun. We saw a recent convert who is ten but his home has a strange vibe now.  It's really off and me and sister Dvaz did our lesson but left.  It was awkward and we weren't sure what changed but other people in the ward noticed it as well.  We saw an elderly woman who is less active and started reading with her and she came to church yesterday.  We were so excited!
   Friday..... was a crazy morning.  We got a call from the mission office and they said an issue has come up in Fairview which is where the elders are.  It was so seriously we thought someone was getting ET which is emergency transferred.  When that happens you leave your assigned area that day.  No one was ET thankfully had a mini heart attack there.  But the real deal was the elders might need to leave where they are living soon and they would take our place and we would move to members guest house.  This member is so loaded though.  We still have to check it out but we believe we will move before transfers this month.  The members place is cheaper and possibly nicer.  We were told possibly be moving today but thats not happening. We get more time than that thankfully.  So we had to go through the day not knowing about the move.  No one has given us any info on that still but whatever.  The rest of the day was good we walked a lot but we have walked like everyday this week which is nice. 
  Saturday we had district meeting.  We found out about Zone Conference and Elder Martino is coming and we all get to shake his hand so excited.  We have some stuff to study and prepare for but so excited.  Then we had lunch with the baker sisters and traveling elders.  It was good Mexican food.  Then we went to Savage to try to find some people but no one was home lame!!!  So we came back and had dinner with our usual Saturday night fam. Then we saw a less active who we will hopefully be helping paint soon which is fun.
  Sunday was mothers day so obviously I skyped home to see the family.  My dad biggest dork in the world started off with being chewbacca.  Sister Dvaz thought it was funny as well.  It was great to see them alive and doing good.  Carter for some reason likes to put his face by the cam.  dork.  Sister Dvazs family is fun too.  Her brother did the same thing as Carter it was entertaining.  Oh BTW sister Dvaz is on the worst missionary drivers list... Fun day Church was awesome though the bishopric talked  and so good.  Been a crazy week everyone.
 So in my studies this week I read D&C 100:5-8 
 Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men; For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say. But a commandment I give unto you, that ye shall declare whatsoever thing ye declare in my name, in solemnity of heart, in the spirit of meekness, in all things.  And I give unto you this promise, that inasmuch as ye do this the Holy Ghost shall be shed forth in bearing record unto all things whatsoever ye shall say.
I was kinda shocked when I read this because in verse 7 we are commanded to share the gospel. This isn't just for missionaries but everyone. We need to always be an example and if we are asked share our faith not hide it.  It is so important that we do it or we are loosing blessings but more importantly other people dont get the blessings of the gospel!!!!!  Don't hog it its not just for you but the world
well I love you all have a fabulous week!!!
