Week of Service!

We were on bikes this week. And it was pretty stinking hot! But we also were able to serve a lot of the members this week! Some of the fun services we did this week included painting a members salon, moving a less active (we had to move her huge dog house into the uhaul and I swear it weighed like 600 pounds! It took all 6 of us missionaries to get it up and then getting it down was ever harder. It took forever but we learned team work :) and got to ride on the back of the uhaul a couple times), cleaning up Bona Dea Park for a member in the ward who is working on his Eagle Project (that park was super cool and we walked around the trail picking up garbage and swung on vines like tarzan and got to ride in a 4x4), cleaned a members car, and played the piano for the spanish branch for their mini concert. I really love the scripture in Mosiah 2:17 that says, "when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are in the service of your God" o algo asi. I know that that is true and learned this week that when we serve others it makes us so happy! It really makes all your own worries and cares go away. That is something I have learned to love out here on the mission is serving others! And its a great way to get to know the members and then they want to help us out. 

We had ward conference this week and were able to listen to the stake leaders. It was awesome. Afterwards the spanish branch had food for the leaders which of course was delicious. I love spanish branches :) 

We had dinner with the Smiths last night and while we were waiting for the pizza to cook Samantha and my companion and I sang some songs. It reminded me of how us cousins used to sing songs and harmonize all the time. I am so excited to do that again! Music is just the best and really does bring the spirit. 

Other than that we had a good, safe bike week and were able to find some new people to teach. This gospel is true! Love yall!

Classic Jumping Photo

Don't worry, that is not sweat on our back. That is just water from being sprayed. ;)

Just chillin' with Sam!

Met some hispanics up there and they wanted a picture! Sometimes I think it's
still hard for me to believe that I know Spanish.
