July 26, 2012

On Tuesday, it was Pioneer Day. In the state of Utah it's a Holiday. On Monday night we stayed the night with Sisters Iverson and Howard so we could go to the parade that was going to go on on Tuesday morning. The parade was so much fun! Longest parade of my life. While walking towards the end of where the parade was going to end, we got stopped by these girls that got SUPER excited to see 2 Sister missionaries. They started talking to us and got to know us a bit. They turned out to be hilarious and they want to have us over for dinner sometime. We met a lot of new people. Everyone says hi to us and it's nice. After the parade, we went to play volleyball at a church building. There were so many of us missionaries. There was this elder that fell asleep on the couch and Sister Saunima'a and Martinez made cupcakes. These 2 other Elders got Sister Martinez to smear a cupcake on the Elder. Oh my heck! The Elder woke up and had no idea what was going on. He had frosting all over his face and since he had no idea what was going on, he ate the cupcake. Everyone just started to laugh. He didn't even see the sister that put he cupcake on his face. It was so funny. We have a great time every P-Day. I love P-Day but not as much as missionary work that's for sure. :) And I'm not being sarcastic. haha
Yesterday, we had zone conference from 9 am - 4 pm. It was a very long training. I really needed that training. They talked to us about being obedient, talking to everyone we see, and we did some role playing. I mean real role playing with people that we meet every day. The APs are awesome. They always teach us a lot of spiritual things. I took a lot of notes and I know it'll be helpful throughout my mission.
Lately, the weather here has been crazy! It's been humid when it usually is super dry! My companion has been used to the humidity and while walking, I'm sweaty and sticky and all that nasty stuff and my companion isn't sweaty or anything. I'm like dying and she acts like nothing is wrong. haha
Um...on Monday we have a training for the temple open house. I'm super excited and I don't care how long the training is. I'm just super excited to work at the temple open house. Time is going by fast, don't you think? I think so! On Saturday, I've been out for 4 months already. Next thing you know I'll be home giving my homecoming talk. haha
Well I hope everyone is doing great! I miss you all and keep the letters coming! I hope to hear from you all soon. :)
