SO our week was a lot of fun. we went on exchanges with some of our sisters and had a blast!
I went to Harrison Park and rode a bike for the first time on my mission, man am I out of shape. We biked 7 miles... up hill.. goodness. I'm grateful for a car. and I give lots of props to all the missionaries who ride bikes. I also had exchanges with Sister Birks- which was a lot of fun! WE met a lady named Desiree. Funny story was, we were talking on the phone in the car when we got a nock on our window. Some dude that was kinda drunk was like "what are you doing?" "Do you guys need anything?" We were still kinda in shock, but we said no and he walked back to his house. Then one minute later, his girlfriend was outside smoking and I told sister birks to yell to her and ask her if we could come talk to her. She said yes! we said a quick prayer and got out started our little speel of who we were. WE shared the new Christmas video "Why we need a Savior" and after she was in tears! she gave us like 5 hugs and was telling us how she was having a hard day and was praying for help- when we rolled up in our car. She told us she knows the spirit and how our meeting was no coincidence. She was so happy and told us we could come back anytime! It was an awesome miracle. What else happened this week.. we went to church and sang in the choir for the Christmas program- it was fun! and then I was snagged into primary to play the piano. (: My secret is out. ha ha
But its been awesome! Oh, so I wasn't there for it. But Becky Arenas was baptized!!! AHH! Im soo happy. (: SIster Fountain and I taught her for 2 months and now she is baptized! AH. Its amazing. I love Wichita, we are having our Zone Christmas Party tomorrow which should be pretty fun. We get to wear ugly sweaters. woooh!
Well, I hope you all have a Merry Chirstmas! I will see my familia then and the rest of you I will talk to you all next monday! (:

okay so its been great being in the NICE part of the big city!
Being a leader in the mission hasn't set in yet, probs because its only been like 5 days.. pfft! What do I know. #hardlyanything.
But we had a good week, we met a lot of people, some nice some crazy some just... not. But Its awesome. I love it here and Sister Houston is awesome. She had Bronchitis for like 3 weeks... so its been a party- we finally cleaned out apartment because it looked like WW3 went down in there.
Church was great- and then half way through Sacrament we get a text from the YSA relief society prez asking if we would like extra blessings and could teach the lesson.. we cant say no- so we did and it turned out pretty good. (We also cover YSA ward) hmmm.. we are always busy. We cover the Derby Zone sisters and my baby is also there so I'm really happy to have her back in Kansas and not Colorado.. its better over here. (;
It hasn't snowed yet either.. lame.
But as for the work here, its been alot of fun! We have fun elders and an awesome ward mission leader. He does so much to help out and the cool thing is that the ward is also pretty missionary minded. which is a bonus! We had a ward Christmas party and we were in the 12 days of Chritsmas skit.. we were the pipers piping.. he he and plus Santa is in our ward! so he was there. Lots of food and cool people. Oh and the Stake President is a Williams... and his family is from Idaho... coincidence? no. and I have met so many people from Idaho its ridiculous. I was totally meant to be here..:D
But I'm loving it here so much, I'm really excited for Christmas! Also... the extended my mission by a week so I wont be home til April 21~ so I just thought Id let yall know! (: hurray!!!
I'm so grateful to be a member of Christ church and I was actually thinking about Heavenly Father and how much he loves us.. but he loves all of his children equally, no matter who they are, what religion they are. But because of the restored gospel, we learn to love him more and have more to love about our Father in Heaven- To have a personal relationship with him and our savior that is eternal! Its such a blessing.
I love my mission!! its been amazing and is going by too fast.. its gross..
But I hope you all have a great week and keep on being awesome. #churchistrue
