A New Car!
So this will be my last letter that comes on a day other than Monday. Our library reopened today so it'll be on Mondays from here on out. And we got a new car today! It is a brand spankin' new Toyota Corolla. I love it a ton! Its so nice and new! It only had 10 miles on it when we picked it up from the mission office! I like it way better than the old Malibu we used to drive. This one is much smaller and has a way better turn radius (for making u turns when I get lost in this crazy California road system). And it is a super cool charcoal color.
Thanks Dad for that info that you sent me, we have a lesson with Kennan tonight and we will share that with him. Hopefully he will be baptized before I have to get transferred, but if he doesn't I will still be able to come back when he does get baptized. Yesterday he texted us to reschedule our appointment from yesterday to today and was really apologetic that he wasn't able to do it yesterday, and I told him, "its ok the church is still true" and he said "Amen!" I'm pretty sure that he believes most of if, he just for whatever reason can't get all of it quite yet.
Easter was really great! We went to our ward mission leaders house for creamed eggs right after church. Those were super good! As far as I could tell it was boiled eggs mashed up in a white roux kind of sauce. Super, super good. Then for dinner we went over to the Nidu's house. They are a really awesome Indian family, and they made some super delicious curry. Then after dinner Sister Nidu's mom shared her testimony, and it was probably the best testimony I have ever heard. She basically asked her son who was also present to start going back to church, and he said, "you know I left the church Momma," but he had tears in his eyes and he didn't sound too convinced about having left the church. It was super awesome to be able to share that experience with the family.
So that's all that I have for this week. Thank you all for you love and support and prayers! I appreciate it so so much. And also a huge thank you to Susie and Michael. You will be getting another thank you letter from me soon, but I wanted you to know in the mean time that I really, really, really appreciate the stuff that you sent me. Thank you so much!
I'm not sure if I said this already but I think I remember that Mom had an extra set of hair clippers, and if you could send those to me for my birthday that would be awesome! If I am remembering wrong and you don't have any extras, then don't worry about it, I can bum some off of others. More than half of the missionaries have some. Anyways I love you all and hope you all are well!
