October 7 - Sweetwater, FL

Okay guys I am so excited about this week!! 
So this week we went on exchanges with the Sister training leaders and it was such a cool experiance! I loved it. I left my area and went to pember pines( i think thats how you spell it) for the day with sister bean! she was so nice and she was so outgoing and cool I loved her!!:) Her area is full of like really really wealthy peopel so we went harvesting in her area and people where a little mean haha but its okay it just made me really gratefull for my area. Also we kept on having really bad luck knocking on doors everyone kept of saying no and closing there door but sister bean was like "we prayed about this area and we are here for somebody" so we kept on going and then we found this one guy, Carlos Lopez. It was crazy he was an inactive member because his second wife had asked him to leave the church so he did but he still read his scriptures and everything and he still had the book of mormon so he really still seemed to believe in it. the crazy thing was though that he didnt even live in that house. he was just doing some construction work there. Its crazy how our heavenly Father works. Also later that day we had dinner in a members home. the food was so good!!!! The father of the family isnt a member and he used to not talk to the missioanries at all he like hated him but the sister missionaries in that area have been working really hard and he now loves them  and has them over all the time. he was so funny and he was such a cool guy and i know that he would make a such great member of the church so i am excited to see what happens with that. So I went back to my area that next day and it was just like miracle day. there is this thing where we try to talk to as many people as possible and its called open your mouth (OYM) and we set goals of how many we are going to try to get that day. It so crazy we met this guy this one day from the OYM and his name is Israel he is so cool!! He is on probation and he went to jail for 3 months but he had such a great attitude about it. He was saying that being sent to jail was good for him and changed his life. He just wants to get closer to christ now. He had such a laid back personality and we was so sincere about it! He also has the most beautiful eyes ever!!!!! Everyone here has gorgeous eyes! its crazy they are like blue, green, grey they are all so pretty! anyways we also met this other guy from OYM's named james. He is a18 years old and had been smoking and for the past  couple years and he seemed like he really wanted some help. We were able to help him stop smoking cold turkey ( i think thats how you say it) and he came to general conferance and i think he really like it. Also we have this guys named Elio, he seems to be really interested and really wants to get baptized. I am so excited for all these people and how much there lives are going to change! Well thats all i have for you guys.

Love you guys:) 


P.S. I think me and my companion seriously heard gunshots outside our window last night. No big deal right? haha GOD LOVES US! AND EVERYONE ELSE!:)

P.P.S. My companion got bit by a dog!!!! It was crazy we were praying for  a lady and then her dog was trying to get out and my companion was trying to keep it in and she got bit on her finger! It was crazy she was bleeding a lot but thankfully it wasnt like so horrible that she is going to lose a finger. but yeah I was like in shock like did that seriously just happen! It was crazy. missionary life right here.
