(Service with a smile!...Me and Sister Hatch with 3 recent converts(Sydney, Poppy, and Bella)...I thought I hit a cat, guess again...I'm not sure how to explain this one)
Hi Familia! How goes it fools??? JK. This week was swell. (Erin will appreciate that I used "swell" in a sentence.) I went on an exchange to Kingsport with Sister Camie Manwill from California. She's 26 and a pro-volleyball player. She's 6'1"!!! Talk about making me feel like a midget. We met with Sydney and Ryan together this week. Our bishop was in the building and we told them to go talk to him about what they need to do to go to the temple. Next thing we know, he pulls them in one by one and Sydney came out with a Temple Recommend and Ryan is preparing to receive the priesthood next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What just happened?!? ndzf;lj BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! This just happened!!! I was sitting at this computer in one of those office rolling chairs, when all of a sudden, my chair dropped to the lowest height. I literally felt like I was falling, so I just yelled in the middle of the library. AWKWARD. It was like I got a "kick" from the movie Inception. Craziness!! That WOULD happen to me. :):):):) This week, we were on a team up with Sydney and we were speeding. I felt like I should tell her to slow down, but then I decided not to because I hate backseat drivers. All of a sudden, an undercover cop is behind us and WOOP WOOPs us. So, we pull over, and he walks up to the car and asks "How old is everyone in the car?" We tell him, 22, 20 and 19. He asks again how old I am(he didn't believe me!) so we tell him. He asks us all for our ID. He takes all of them and goes back to his car. He ran checks on our ID! I think he thought they were kidnapping me or something. He came back 10 minutes later and I watched in awe as Sydney talked her way out of getting a ticket. She was so smooth with her words. She was going 50 in a 30 mph zone. I was shocked that she was able to weasel her way out of it. Nuts! We had stake conference this weekend! It was great! Elder Zwick from the seventy came to speak to us. He is awesome! I love general authorities because they radiate the Spirit. He shook Ryan's hand and it was great. We sat down and I told Ryan "I've always heard that when a General Authority shakes your hand and looks into your eyes, that he's measuring your light." He asked what that meant, but the meeting started, so I told him that we would talk afterwards. When Elder Zwick was speaking, he said, "and to our new member Ryan... Ryan, you have the light. I can see it in you." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the??? I literally just told Ryan about Light and then so did Elder Zwick. Everyone sitting around me just turned to stare at me. Crazy! I love you more than Cops love Doughnuts!
