On Fourth of July we scootered along like the sidewalk by the river and played on some cool playground stuff with the ostlers. But in the morning also we went to the breakfast and then the hood river parade. But also we knocked some doors and found a cool guy who we taught and said we can come by again this week.
On Tuesday we were in white salmon and we had set up a lesson with a lady for Tuesday night at like 8 and we got her number but then I could not find it so we just decided to go. She wasn’t there so then we went to the grocery store and I bought some bananas and Hermana Peterson bought a mini cheesecake and then we walked out and the lady we were trying to visit was walking into the store!! It was so perfect and she gave us her number again! It was literally so perfect that we came out at the exact time she was coming in!
Also we went all the way to trout lake cause the elders found someone there that spoke Spanish. But she was like taking care of a kid so she wasn’t supposed to let us in but then she still did. We got to know her but then the kids mom came so I was like oh shoot should we hide and she was like yeah hahhaha so we went outside and after they left she got us and we taught her about the Book of Mormon.
On Wednesday we helped a member in her garden. And then she gave me kale! Saturday we were in white salmon again and a member came out with us and she was awesome! She like knew the people we were teaching and then after there was people outside just barbecuing some carne asada and she was just like hey can we have some and they totally just gave us tacos! And they were way delicious.
So our new place is pretty awesome. We live in a barn/studio apartment in parkdale. The only thing is that we sleep upstairs so it is sooo hot up there. And there are no windows so it is just really interesting. But we got air conditioning and that will help a lot!
This week I have been studying a lot about the spirit and just like it is possible to be sooo guided by the spirit that you are always in the right place at the right time. I love being a missionary and serving in the northwest! The earth is beautiful. I know God created it for us and he created us in his image. He really wants us to be happy and learn and grow so we can live with him again after this life! I love him and I know that he has a plan for all of his children. Oh and also I’ve been on my mission for a year. Craaaaazy talk.
