Drop It Like It's Hot (8/11/14)

This week has been crazy fun! It's sad that we lost Sister Jibas...we miss her so much! At random times we will just be driving along and think, "where is that girl! It's not as fun with out her!"

Moving apartments! I now live in the West Park area!! Hahahaha, I just drive by places and think, "So and so lives there!" I had to stop telling Sister Jennings where everyone lives; she might be going crazy! As far as getting everything to our apartment it only took two trips (with just enough room for Sister Jibas to sit in that back)! Go team! Sister Jennings and I love the new apartment so much!! It has a felling about it and sometimes it makes noises that sound like a rocket ship taking off so we get to have fun with lift off and landing training! Sometimes we feel like Power Rangers and get all ready for battle!!

Okay we had a The Best Two Years moment this week! Sister Jennings felt like she needed a bagel for breakfast the next day and we had forgotten them while we went shopping so she wanted to go get some. I said sure lets was 9 at night...and we went and we were able to see an old friend, Mayra! And she wants to meet with us because (words out of her own mouth..) "were so cool!" Go, go, Power Rangers moment!!

In a Plan of Salvation lesson we were teaching how when we die our spirits are separated from there body and go to Spirit Paradise...and as soon as I said spirits are separated from there body...a 5 lb pine cone falls to the ground! BOOM!!! Almost smashing Sister Jennings or I in the head! So definitely made Jessica remember that lesson! Who could forget that! 

Also, this week Sister Jennings and I started Fat Camp...we have gotten a few suggestions to change the name to make it more positive. like Drop It Like It's Hot...ahahahahaha, so funny!
Mom, cool thing: I can now make hash browns with out turning them into mush!! Oh yeah, you really do learn on your mission!

So this week Sister Jennings and I have felt really tired; like we have to pull over and talk a 20 minute cat nap so we can stay awake on the road. Are we going to bed on time? Yes. Getting upon time? Yes. We don't know what is going on, we even fell asleep in chairs while waiting for people to come and play basket ball on Thursdays! What!? So I asked for a blessing, as my zone leader laughed at me! Rightly he did, because its so freaking funny! Well I'm not as tried as I used to be, so it is AWESOME!!
Also, this week we were so lucky to get to take an RM out with us! And what blessings came! The Spirit was with us so strongly! We were able to find places that we have never been able to find!  It was so cool. We were looking for a place and we asked as guy where it might be and he said he didn't know but that we should just park and look for it on foot, so we did. We parked and as we got out of the car the place that we were looking for was right in front of our faces!!
Food for thought! 1 Peter 1:7 The hard times we have are worth more than gold!
Also, Funny Funny Funny! We ate dinner this week with a Marshallese family and they had a Marshallese party...and they ordered in Chinese food! Hahaha, so funny!
Well I love you!!!
LOVE Sister Violette Carlson
