ooooo la la

ohhh my lovas day. you know it's my favorite. and YOU GUYS ARE MY FAVORITE. thank you thank YOU for sending me goodies in the mail. it made. my. week. and made me feel super spoiled, which was fun. so thank you. all of you.

this week has been A W E S O M E. me and sis bigelow are jivvvin and working hard to meet with as many people as we can. we are working with so many part member families and teaching them the gospel. this week we decided to beBOLD. we have a couple people who have been meeting with the missionaries for a while and we finally stopped beating around the bush and asked them "whats holding you back?"- "what do you want??" (**noah voice #notebook)- we're cutting the crap and encouraging them to JUST DO IT. #nike and the best part is because we're sisters, they can't get mad at us!! haha no... we just love them a lot and want to see these people happy, so we've been bold with extending commitments and inviting people to change and to try a little harder to be a little better. {i miss pres hinckley} and it's been exciting to see what's happening.

one of my favorite people we met this week was Kellie, from Sacramento. Girl's got energy and when we taught her the gospel she just lit up! She was so receptive to everything about the gospel and when we invited her to be baptized, before we even finished the invite, she said "Oh, I'd be honored" and started to cry. The spirit was so strong and it was incredible! We are teaching her at a family's house who has been less active so it's awesome. She is absolutely hysterical and I just love her. She comes from a rough past but absolutely loves being in Idaho and is trying to get her whole family to Idaho and into the church. This gospel is for E V E R Y O N E and we need to share it with everyone. 

Also... these are Kellie quotes from church yesterday... she has two kids.... who aren't used to church.... so they were entertaining to say the least:

"shhhhh. sit down. it's time for the snackrament" (when we taught her about the sacrament she was so surprised it meant anything. hahaha she thought it was a snack for everyone!)

"Damion! Stop killing deer in the house of God." (iphone game hahaha)

"Wait...? Did he just say this is a steak center? There's beef in here?"

hahahaha she is a hoot. and teaching her is the best. we are going to try and set a baptismal date with her this week so I'm excited! our teaching pool is growing more and more and it's exciting. we stay busy and i am so grateful! the Lord has a work for each of us, no matter where we are... I'm so grateful for all the He teaches me about His work! This is His Gospel... The good news... learn it, live it, love it--- you know... all the CLICHES BABY.

i'm really happy where i'm at and i'm really grateful for all your love and support. wouldn't be here without ya.

oh guess what. since i've been on my mission, i never sleep through the night. which is kinda super annoying but whatever. this week, however, i've woken up three different times and turned on the lamp and knelt down and started praying. poor sister bigelow. she's like "what the heck are you doing? it's 3:30AM"  hahahahah it's happened on 3 different nights. all different times. for NO reason. and it's never funny till we wake up in the morning... and i'm all.... "did i....?" and she's all....."YES YOU CREEP". hahahahaha  #ihatemyself #missionlyfe
