August 10, 2015

Zone baseball last Monday was the best thing ever! It was so fun, but I took 0 pictures. But it was legit, the members that do this for the missionaries every year got all of us hats that say GI for Grand Island Zone and they spray painted NOM on it for Nebraska Omaha Mission. And I have a picture of that! Here's our hats hanging on our mirror.

We also did this really fun lesson with Jose and Jesus with the armor of God that we made out of cardboard boxes, Shield of Faith, Breastplate of righteousness, Sword of the Spirit, and Helmet of Salvation. It was fantastic. The sword was the best part and it took me forever to make it and it was legit. And here you can see Jose breaking it.

​I stole Sister Brunner's camera to get a picture of zone baseball and this is the only picture she got before her camera died. But if you zoom waaaay in, I'm right in the middle of the picture in my red shirt standing in the outfield.

This week has been kind of lame. Malachi hasn't gotten back to us all week so we didn't get to meet with him and he didn't come to church yesterday. And his friend David who called asking if he could come to church set up a meet with us on Friday (like, he set it up himself, so we thought it would really happen) and then he didn't show up. And he also hasn't gotten back to us all week and didn't come to church yesterday.

On Saturday we went to the York county fair to volunteer and they were so glad we came because like nobody signed up to help in the couple hours we helped and it was like the busiest time of the night. We got to make and serve food and I never want to work in fast food. Ever. Or look at another walking taco. I've never even heard of walking tacos before I came on my mission. Is that just a Nebraska thing? Anyway, they were super awesome and they loved us and they were so appreciative of all we did and how much we helped, and we knew they all would've accepted the gospel, but we didn't get the chance to talk to any of them about it. And we don't even know their names. So now we're just praying we'll run into all of them again someday.

Quote of the week from my mission president's email: "One of my favorite scriptures comes from Proverbs 3:5-6. It says, "Trust in the Lord with ALL thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths." Understanding the Lords will and timing is one of the great quests of our lives. As we humbly and patiently submit to His will, the Lord will unfold both His will and His timing to us. Learning to trust him in one of the key learning opportunities on your mission. Patience has been defined as the capacity to endure delay, trouble, opposition or suffering without becoming angry, frustrated or anxious. It is the ability to do God's will and accept his timing. We simply must do our part, be obedient and then trust in the Lord."
