Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii :) 

Fun Fact: PINEAPPLES. They are everywhere. The pineapple actually is the symbol of hospitality, so everyone has them all over everything. But that rule gets thrown out the window when missionaries are involved haha. Just kidding, these people are... nice... ;) 

We went on exchanges with our District Sister Training Leaders, it was so awesome to learn from Sister Davis, and to get tips and advice on how to be a better missionary. She is so sweet and so flippin hilarious!! She also brings the spirit where ever she is and has an amazing testimony. 
Here is a fun story: 
So once upon a time we were tracting, and we were on a road that had a lot of grumpy people. They are really good at saying the words "I'm all set". So we are walking and praying and all of a sudden we come to a house, and there is a big garage and these two old men were just chillin. So we go up to them and introduce ourselves and our purpose, and one of the old men said: "Hey you want a beer? How about a smoke? I can get some shots out? Oh! I just brewed up some moon shine! I will get that too!" 
We quickly said we were not interested and told them to have a great day. 
Sorry if you were expecting a happy ending, I just love that story because I was dying of laughter when we were leaving, hahaha MOON SHINE!! hilarious. :) 

That was about the climax of this week, just about every appointment fell through. That is pretty tough on the mental stamina of a missionary, but it also just means we are going to work even harder this week! :) 

"I testify that one cannot come to full faith in this latter-day
work--and thereby find the fullest measure of peace and comfort in
these, our times--until he or she embraces the divinity of the Book of
Mormon and the Lord Jesus Christ, of whom it testifies. If anyone is
foolish enough or misled enough to reject 531 pages of a heretofore
unknown text teeming with literary and Semitic complexity without
honestly attempting to account for the origin of those
pages--especially without accounting for their powerful witness of
Jesus Christ and the profound spiritual impact that witness has had on
what is now tens of millions of readers--if that is the case, then
such a person, elect or otherwise, has been deceived; and if he or she
leaves this Church, it must be done by crawling over or under or
around the Book of Mormon to make that exit"
 - Elder Jeffrey R Holland

It is such an honor to be able to introduce the greatest book in existence, to people who have never heard about it. The Book of Mormon is so incredible important. It is a second witness of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. What a blessing it is to be able to share this gift. 
I know that it is true! 

I love you all so much! I hope you have the greatest week!! Remember to read your scriptures! Pray! Go to church! Be a good person! :)
