I will be heartbroken to leave here if thats what the Lord has in store for me, but again, we still have time. anyway, on Tuesday we were in Dove Creek and went to read the scriptures with James (the one that hacked the lougie last week) but they were busy hauling out an old broken bed. so of course we offered to help, and they let us join right in. what a project! but it was so much fun. we carried out this HUGE mattress with a weird smell and questionable stains on it into this shed that i don't even know how we fit the mattress in there, then we tried to build this complicated bunk bed for the grandkids to sleep on. we had no idea what we were doing but managed to figure it out anyway, James didn't hesitate to give sassy remarks such as "hurry up" or the occassional joking curse word. it was funny and his wife is a non-member and REALLY appreciated our work. so hopefully she will have a softer heart towards our message, she hasn't really been super interested before but baby steps. anyway that was fun, Sister King and i were exhausted afterwards. on Wednesday we hit the jackpot at the thrift shop, some rich farm-wife is ADDICTED TO SHOPPING and donated like 10 bags worth of BRAND NEW clothes that were super soft and super expensive and super cute. and the lady who owns the store is a member and we always help her out so she lets us take anything we want, so we stocked up, in fact i even sent some home:) its cute huh? it was an amazing day to be Sister Nilsson and Sister King. we also got to see raylee. she is dong amazing as always but her dad isn't really stepping up to help her progress towards baptism, so we might have to do the saddest thing I dont want to do and let her go for a little bit to help her dad recognize that this is important and urgent. ah it breaks my heart to even think about it, but I have good hopes. on Thursday one of our returning members brought us shakes from this really good shake place in Blanding, it was so nice of them.
On Friday we had a CAT PARTY! Siister Codner has 3 cats as you know which stay outside but Sister King and I wanted to snuggle with them so we snuck them upstairs and locked them in our study room as we planned for the week, they were so cute and fun. We also were blessed with a new investigator who already READS FROM THE BOOK OF MORMON EVERY DAY. THATS BETTER THAN MOST MEMBERS. so we were excited to visit with him. unfortunately he is moving to Grand Junction in a couple of weeks but we will teach him while we can. tender mercies every day. on Saturday we had dinner with Trish again, and found out that Charlie will be coming home in a couple of weeks! Right before the end of the transfer thank goodness, but he shouldn't be going to prison. very very grateful for that. on Sunday I met a kid who lives in Draper and who knows Greg and Garrett, it was weird. then today we went on a hike! We went to Bridges National Parks, it was a lot of fun! Lots of pretty rocks and hiking and such, Sister King and I nearly died walking back up but we managed. The Elders probably are super ashamed that we are that out of shape but whatever, we had fun anyway. I'll be sending pictures.
That was basically the week, this week should be good as well! The weather is getting warmer and warmer and I'm debating on getting a haircut (nothing too short but) so give me ideas cause I'm going through a mid-mission crisis where I need a change. I LOVE YOU ALL LOTS AND LOTS, HAVE A GOOD WEEK
