The lovely Sister Whicker and I have been partying it up this week. Want to know why?
BECAUSE SHE GOT DEAR JOHN-ED.
Lucky for her, I am the pity party QUEEN (we may or may not have eaten ice cream every day this week. Multiple times a day. don’t judge).
Actually, we probably would have bought ice cream everyday anyway...because there is WIND FROM THE SAHARA making it unusually hot and just a little bit miserable.
I BROUGHT THE TEXAS TEMPERATURES WITH ME, Y’ALL.
But really, you'd think that 18 years in San Antonio would have prepared me a little better for this heat...haha think again. I’m dying right alongside all the Germans!!
Breakups and the weather aside...IT WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL WEEK.
SHIRLEY GOT BAPTIZED!!!!!
Oh my goodness, it was an amazing service. There were two big activities going on in our stake, so we assumed there wouldn’t be very many people there, but by the time everything was over, we had set up two extra rows of seats! The people just kept coming and coming! I gave a talk about baptism and her father gave a talk about the Holy Ghost. Sister Whicker was supposed to sing, but she lost her voice...so a bunch of elders from our zone saved the day and performed a musical number! There was a great turnout from the branch; we had a few new converts there and a couple of investigators too!!! AHHH IT WAS PERFECT.
I’m gonna keep this one short this week because, honestly, we were so focused on getting this baptism together that not too much else happened!!
Love y’all lots!!!
Hope you have a great week! (:
Stay cool! Enjoy the AC...We don’t have any here in Germany!!
