First, me and sister smith tried to have a pancake eating contest at ihop this week. i definitely won. but i could only eat 5 of those huge things. it was so enjoyable haha
Then we went to this awesome soup kitchen and did service! We got to prepare food and then serve it to people and it was seriously so fun! We spent like an hour just squeezing lemons to make lemonade and my hands got soo tired haha but it was an awesome experience and i got to wear a hairnet. #blessed
Then we did some good tracting and we have this new survey approach where we ask people to take a survey about "spiritual matters" and its been helping a lot! Lots more people are opening doors and not slamming them and its really fun and we've gotten a couple people we're going to go back and try to start teaching! Its pretty legit. It makes tracting way more fun.
Then, Elder Ulisses Soares of the presidency of the 70 came and he talked to us for a long time and it was so awesome! He talked to us about how to be better missionaries and a lot of stuff and it was so great. Then we had 2 leadership meetings with him and THEN he asked to personally interview me and i was like WHAT. So I got interviewed by a member of quorum of the 70 and it was LEGIT. He was so sweet and it was a really cool experience!
One of my favorite things he said:
"Our attitude will determine our altitude."
Oh how true that is! how we choose to feel about things will really determine where we go with it!
speaking of which, I'm getting transferred this week! Back to the suburbs which is crazy! I've loved my time in the city but i'm looking forward to new experiences!
Hope y'all have a great week!
