It has been 77 degrees in our apartment! To HOOOTTTTTT!!!!

Monday- Today we spent all day in Wasilla, Why? Because there was a
missionary who died that was from Willow serving in Vancouver
Washington Mission, so we sang at the funeral! Elder Gay from the
Seventy was there! After the funeral we went and surprised Janessa at
her work! She almost jumped out of her chair (Not the first time) She
gave us free food and she surprised me with Horchata! I was able to
talk to her and get to know her family more. Her grandpa was F.L.D.S.
and he had 14 wives! She has 1 brother and he is 17 and he does not
talk to her much. Her dad ignores her and they live in Idaho!  I gave
her a true to the faith book before we left!

Tuesday- Today we had district meeting and we did a district talent
show! And we then saw a whole bunch of Active members! And that was
pretty much my day!

Wednesday- We went and took the bishops son Landon and he came with us
to a couple of lessons with a few single ladies! He will be leaving on
his mission  to somewhere in Europe in August! We then went over to
this one ladies house and gave her a blessing and Landon gave the
blessing and that was his first blessing that he has ever given! What
a stud!

Thursday- Well we asked the Office if we could get a fan and they said
yes!!!! It has been 77 degrees in our apartment! To HOOOTTTTTT!!!! We
then went to sis. Whitehouses house and we gave her a blessing!

Friday- We went and tried to see so many people but nobody was home,
they were all going fishing. But for dinner we were at the Stoners
home and She invited one of our investigators and we taught the
Restoration and after the lesson while we were walking away sis.
Stoner ran up to us and she told us that we were the first
missionaries ever to teach him one of the lessons! And she said that
they have met so many times for the past 5 years and nobody has shared
a lesson with him until today!

Saturday- Today was the huge yard sale!!! I mean we were all holding
up big big signs saying HUGE YARD SALE! The scouts made $2,600! And we
provided everything for that yard sale! Because well every time we
went over to somebodies house we would ask them at the end of the
lesson if they had anything that they would like to donate! And of
course they cant say no to the missionaries! Haha!

Sunday- So we taught Sunday school and it was about women and men and
the priesthood! That was fun! We were teaching the 16 year olds! And
guess who came to church! The Leach's and the dad was crying because
of the power of the Atonement and how much it meant to him! And guess
who else! Wolf Gang and his little Brother Ian! They are now going on
the Denali hike with the young men! They have not been to church since
they were 10 and Wolf Gang is 17 and Ian is 16! Sooo Cool! We taught 6
lessons today!

Well that was my week! I love you guys!
