|Last day together with Sister Colson :(|
We had a pretty fun week this week :)
So on Thursday we get a call from the APs telling us we are
"receiving" a sister - for three days. There have been lots of fires
over in Azusa/Glendora area (other side of the mission) and Sister
Garcia had asthma issues so they sent her over here for a few days so
we were a trio for a bit - it was pretty fun! We did splits one night
with a member and that turned out pretty well. She has been out three
months and has a lot of greenie fire in her so it was really cool to
feel that energy and she did a great job contacting and talking to
We had zone conference on Thursday and that was really cool. Lots of
great training from President, the APs, and our ZLs. President told
one of his mission stories and it was super powerful. He served in
Mexico, right below the border of Arizona. He said the only thing
different between the north side of the border and the south (his)
side of the border was that Arizona had air conditioning. He said it
would get to be 122 degrees and they would be on the bus and he said
they would just roll up the windows because the wind was so hot it
felt like your face was burning off. He said that the people in his
area would wash their clothes in this big tub of water and he would
stand there with his arm in it up to the elbow just to feel cool.
He said one day they were walking down the road and they saw these
three guys smoking. The men waved them over, asking them if they
wanted a cigarette or some alcohol. They told them they didn't drink
and started talking to them. One of the men told them, "I would like
to hear more of your message and it's because you guys are young kids,
not some old preacher, and you're out in this heat spreading a good
message. I will listen to your message." Cool experience right?!
We had this pretty awesome FHE on Monday and one of our recent
converts (Kathy) who is super cool, came. And it was like 115 degrees
We get the chance to sit and play the piano every Tuesday at a
convalescent home and this Tuesday after we played, David (a pastor
who preaches every Sunday there) asked us if we would go to a few
different rooms with him and pray over the people there. It was quite
the experience. Everyone we prayed with was Catholic but we could tell
it brought them a lot of peace.
The stake put on a play this week: Alice in Wonderland. We were asked
to help usher so we actually got to stay and watch and it was amazing!
It was actually a musical and the play and the music and everything
was written by a couple in our Ward and they did a great job! All of
the kids in the stake were involved too and it was so cool!
That's about it for my week here in Glendale :) Transfer news: I will
be staying here and my new companion is Hermana Cook! She used to be
in Spanish work but switched over so we're really excited to work
together. This is her last transfer but she'll extend for a little bit
so we're pretty excited :)
I love you all so much! Hope you have a wonderful week!!
Love, Sister Dunn
