So being a missionary we do not have our own washer and dryer so we go to this laundry mat to do it and ughhhhh it is the nastiest thing ever! there are so many hobos and homeless people that live here in sandiego and i feel like every single one of them do their laundry at this place. It always smells super gross and the washers and dryers always have mystery idems in them..........so i really question if my clothes even get clean.....ugh it is seriously so nasty! im trying to find a members that would let us do our laundry at their house so i can save myself from mystery idems in the washer. one time i didnt check for mystery idems and i take my clothes out of the washer and they are covered in CAT HAIR!!!!!!! ewwwww! and i dont have enough time to put them in the washer again so i just had to dry them.....that was a great weeek where all my clothes had cat hair on them. The other week i put my clothes in the washer and it had this syrup goop on the inside.....today i found big chunks of who knows what......why are homeless people so nasty?
I have come to the conclusion that being a missionary is basically terrible 98 percent of the time. Its not the best 2 years of your life, its the best 2 months of your life because if you add up all the great moments and throw out all the crappy ones it about equals 2 months:) but im just doing what the Lords asks and "enduring to the end" hahaha ok i make it sound so much worse than it actually is, but really i cant wait to do my laundry in clean washers and driers!
The directors of the MoBat left and we got new ones this week and they are SOOO awresome! Their names are the Woods and he use to be a mission president in Louisiana so i feel like the MoBat is going to be in tip top shape When the lasst directors (the Barnes) were having their farewell me and sister sorenson rapped for them! she wrote the "Mo Bat Rap" and we preformed it with the Barnes and i will send you a video! hahaha it is so funny!
Also Tyson the zone leaders that you were with one of them has a friend that is serving here in San Diego his name is Elder Yazzie and he came up to me and our conversation went like this
"Hey do you have a brother?"
"Yes i do"
"Is he on a mission"
"Is he is bakerfield?"
"he was companions shortly with my friend!"
i cant remember his name, it was like elder B-something? so that was pretty cool!
Also the SD mission has a goal of baptizing 1000 people this year (we baptized 512 this last year) and so we are suppose to invite one person everyday to be baptized. And i am proud to say that i have successfully done that! and because of that we have 7 investigators with a baptismal date!!!! wooo! i love the Linda Vista 1st area that i am in! i have been in it for my entire mission and transfers are on Dads birthday and i just know that i am going to get transferes....:( i dont want to leave! But i know that what God has in store for me is going to be great!
I love you all so much and hope that you have a great week!! i love all the emails and pics that you send! Keep reading your scriptures and praying because if you do that God will for sure bless you! there is no doubt about that! it is a promise! that if you do what God has commanded you HE WILL ALWAYS POUR OUT HIS BLESSINGS!!! and i dont know about you, but i definitely want to be blessed by God! and i want every single one of you to be blessed as well, so go to church, keep the sabbath day holy, read and pray often, speak kind words to everyone, listen to the prompting of the holy ghost, and serve!:) i promise that as you do these things you will see a difference in your life and you will be able to bless the lives of the people around you!! i Love you all so much and look forward to hearing from you next week!!!
