-I would tell you all not to make any snap judgments about Fresno based on this e-mail..because I LOVE this cute little place.....but to be honest any judgments you are about to make are probably going to be pretty accurate.
hahahahahahaha...........It was a great week.
Monday: We passed off our cute little investigator to the Elders in another ward. Literally it was a miracle for them! They met Charlene on Monday and she was baptized on Saturday!!!!!!
Tuesday: We worked like maniacs at a service project and smashed this members cement pad...apparently Sister Frazier worked too hard and she got supppper sick. Also.....this is a good story.
WE WERE DRIVING.....and this fiesta auto insurance sign flipper on the corner...who is in a crow mascot uniform started doing his little jig and trying to get attention. Well of course I find the nearest picture of Christ and put it up in the window. Well, the crow's arm flapping and sign flipping get a little bit more frantic and all of a sudden he is making a u-turn signal with his little crow arms....so after we face a few rejections we turned back around to go talk to the crow and it actually turned out that he was super interested and genuinely has been looking for a church. THIS IS WHY WE TALK TO EVERYONE THAT BREATHS. Anyway, he doesn't live in our area...but still MIRACLES.
Wednesday: We had zone conference...literally I love zone conference. It was amazing. There is fire in my bones. Gosh I love it. Well after Sister Frazier barely survived zone conference....because she was sick...we couldn't really proselyte. So instead.....we went and toured the assistants house because this crazy lady had broken in who was high on meth and there was blood all over the apartment....they had to send an actual police dog in there to bite her so she would stop being crazy. Wild.
Thursday: Sister Frazier was sick again....and what I can only assume was an effort to make her laugh the Elders decided to prank us. I definitely walked up to our door with a member after we had gone on team-ups and there was a dead squirrel in a panda express box......
Friday: We went on exchanges and I was with Sister Murray. My goodness I'm not kidding literally if you have any questions about what happened the first six months of my mission just get Sister Murray and I together and we will literally quote the first six months of my mission. *This is not an exaggeration.
Saturday: CHARLENE WAS BAPTIZED. IT WAS AMAZING. She was super nervous about going under the water....and she was such a sport...she had to go down three times. SHE WAS SO HAPPY. She also shared this really cool story...So Charlene's husband actually was hit by a car in November and passed away and when she went to the cemetery to go ask him if she should be baptized it was a pretty over-casty day...but as soon as she asked a ray of sunshine fell on her face. THERE IS SUNSHINE IN MY SOUL.
Sunday: We had an investigator at both our wards....cute little nine-year old Shy should be getting baptized this Saturday!!!!!!! Also...we definitely taught a lesson with a new investigator....and we were only a little bit distracted by her less active husband who was giving his friend a tattoo of his "hoodsign." All I can say is at the end of the lesson I'm pretty sure that the less-active at-home tattoo artist was a little distracted by the spirit in the room. what what.
I LOVE YOU ALL.
I LOVE FRESNO.
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY.
HAVE A NICE WEEK.
