|Washing Juan's car|
Today is our pday because we got to go to the temple! So it
moved back a little bit. So we had a pretty long but amazing week here in Arcadia! Sister Bennion got pretty sick earlier in the week but she refused to stay home so we pressed onward. She has the stamina of a horse that girl! (Do horses have lots of stamina?) Anyways, we've been out walking a lot, working on that street contacting thing. We met Robbin sitting down on the side of the road. She had been waiting
We had dinner with an older couple (Brother and Sister Steimle) and they are amazing! They swim like two miles in the pool every other day and Brother Steimle played the Ukulele for us and he has the best voice ever! The other day at church he came up to Morgan and Tyler (newly
We went to this Street Fair on Friday night because some Sisters in our District go every week and set up a "Mormon table" so we got to use all of our unique dancing skills to try to get people to the table and fill out a survey for a candy. Elder P was the best dancer there and all these people would kind of stop and look at him. The funniest part was this elderly couple were walking along and the grandpa starts
dancing right along with Elder P and he was a very enthusiastic dancer! His poor wife was standing there face palming while he danced.
On Saturday we washed a less active's car so now I am a professional at car washing. The Stake put on this dinner before General Women's conference so we got to go to that and it was so fun! And the conference was just the bomb! Elder Uchtdorf totally nailed it with his story, and Sister's
Sunday was pretty awesome. Sister Bennion and I both gave talks and I played I Feel My Savior's Love on the piano for the musical number. We also taught Sunday School so that was pretty fun. Yesterday we stopped by this lady named Roxanne and it was the coolest thing ever. So her
husband is a member but he's super inactive. He has a very time consuming job so his schedule is kind of crazy. She tried meeting with missionaries before and going to church and she loved it. However her family is super Catholic and she felt she couldn't get baptized because of that. Her husband basically said, if you're not going to get baptized, why are you still taking lessons/going to church? So they moved around a bit but finally just returned to Arcadia and have been fixing up their house that had a lot of problems with the pool. So we were talking to Roxanne, and her husband will be out of town for a month because of his job and she told us that the other day she had been thinking about her kids and she has such a strong desire to raise them with good morals and values and so she wants us to come over and teach them about God and Jesus Christ. She said that her kids are asking her all of these questions and she can't answer them so she needs help. Miracle right?
Last night we went over to Sister Leyva's house (her kids Tyler and Morgan just got baptized) and her son Dean (who is baptized but doesn't want much to do with church right now) got terrible heat stroke yesterday so the Elders gave him and Sister Leyva a blessing and it was so powerful and sweet. Gotta love the Priesthood!
Love, Sister Dunn
This is from last week when it was raining before mission conference and we had to run to a bus stop. I debated sending it because I look like a goober but I guess that can't be avoided on your mission :)
