Thursday was my year mark in the field! Exactly 1 year ago I entered good ole Arkansas! Anyways, we had MLC and some HUGE things are coming to the mission! We're getting smartphones and Facebook! After MLC, I shaved elder Goaslind's chest with "ALRM" haha. When we got back we had dinner with the Draney's and then we saw Louis! We had a discussion on the 3 degrees of glory and we brought up D&C so that was insane cause it's hard enough to get people to accept the Book of Mormon as scripture haha.
Friday we weekly planned with the Cabot elders and then interviewed an investigator for the Beebe elders to be baptized! We played catch with the kids (members) while elder Smith interviewed him. He passed! Oh and I cut my own hair that morning too. Thanks mom for the package! Love the suit!! We finished up some planning and headed out to the Mix's for dinner. They were baffled when they heard we didn't have a lot of southern foods back home haha. They can't live without it! And neither can I! I also had the BEST green beans of my life! We headed to the Lagomarsino's and talked with them about life and helped them have a good night. We played with the kids a bit and they invited us over for lunch the next day!
Saturday was great! We had lunch and the most home-like Saturday morning ever! We ate home made pizza with cartoons playing in the back as we talked about scouting and life! Not gonna lie, got a little trunky! Then we went to Elvin's baptism! It was great cause his son performed the ordinance! We headed back to the Lagomarsino's to get elder smiths ipad. While there, I got caught up in making a frog and Arkansas A in Little beads that you melt together...kinda reminded me of playing with Ella! Nadia, the daughter, reminds me so much of Ella it's scary! She even likes those Lala Loopsy things. Weird. But we left and hunted down a gator we met and taught at a hospital. He was discharged and we didn't know where he lived so we looked him up in white books and after trying a few houses we found his! He wasn't home, but we still found it! We went to the Bowles for dinner and then saw Toney for a bit. He's better and wanted to come to church. We ended off the night by writing the weekly email for the Zone.
Sunday was good! Dominic came to church again and was welcomed by everyone! He makes friends fast! Talked about his date the whole time to "join with y'all and get right with gawd!" I love the guy but he's high maintenance haha we had to chase him everywhere as he talked with everyone. We had a skype call with the AP's and STL's about a mission challenge to talk to 3500 people as a mission this week. We're way too down to beat that number! It's the biggest number we'll ever hit if we make it! We had dinner with a member who lives in a shop that was converted into a home! When I say shop, I mean like a garage shop haha. It was awesome! He was a fire fighter and showed me pics and all this stuff and I can't wait until I can do it too! We went to the Duncan's again (Candace and Brody came to church!!) and had a dart war with Brody and his friend and Russell joined in too haha it was awesome! We had a great night as we invited them to come hiking and tailgating with us today! They were sooo down!
Well, like I said, we're off to have a great day! I'll get back to y'all later on! Can't wait to hear back! We're going hiking, tailgating, waterfall watching and playing sand volleyball and other stuff a we grill hot dogs with the Duncan's and the district! Love y'all!
