Happy Monday everyone!
Well transfer calls came Saturday night and Elder Hoopes got the boot! He is going out to east Texas, he has a 6 hour drive ahead of him today! I'm jealous, I want to go out east so bad! But the Lord has other, better plans of course. I'll be staying in Allen for another 6 weeks and I will be training again and taking another crack at being a district leader! So it'll be another interesting transfer. Some more bad news this week though, our baptism was cancelled because the family had a melt down and things just went crazy and now the girl and her two younger brothers are in Oklahoma with their biological father. It was tough to see what happened to the family but the Lord's ways are higher than my ways so I will just trust his judgment and keep on keepin' on. We have another incredibly solid investigator named Ashley Bergstrom but she can't get baptized because her husband is incredibly anti and she is trying to save up the money to get a divorce and once the divorce is over then she is on board for baptism so I will keep you updated on that. We also taught Jakob Yandell again this week (he is the boy who was supposed to get baptized a few weeks ago) and he told us that he still wants to be baptized whether he has to wait two months or two years to do it, so that is encouraging. So we had a rough week but the Lord also blessed us with many great things so we will continue on! I am sad to see Elder Hoopes go though, we have gotten really close and I love the kid to death. He's going to do well out in east Texas though.
This week we had the chance to eat at Dickie's BBQ and it is fantastic. I was so stuffed after dinner. We had ribs, brisket, sausage, potatoes, baked beans, and apple cobbler with ice cream to top it off. I have never felt so fat! It was worth it though. The Johnsons are the ones who took us out and Sister Johnson is a real grammar Nazi and she is also a country girl, what a character. Her husband's name is Chuck and she would end almost every sentence by saying ,"Right Chuck?", it was so funny for some reason. We also ate at Mack's donut shop and they may just be the best donuts ever, no joke. There is too much good food out here, I'm bound to get fat if I ever get off my bike!
Well Happy Birthday Ashlee! I love you, hope it's a great one! And it seems like the last 6 months have flown by, I'm running out of time! I'm enjoying it out here and wouldn't want to be anywhere else! I love you all, have a great week!
