Sorry I didn't get to write a weekly update last week, so here is a brief overview of the last two weeks!
We got to help a family catch all their chickens that had escaped. Turns out that' one of my hidden talents
We volunteered at the Marysville Food Bank again and got to help a lot of people
We had a ward activity at Alfy's pizza in Everett, MY OLD AREA. It was really cool being back in my "home" seeing all my old places, but there was almost a sense of closure because it didn't feel like my area anymore. It was neat to feel that Marysville/Armar ward is now where I need to be
Sunday, we got to church and no one was in the parking lot and all the power was out. We still had our meetings with the ward mission leader and Bishop, with lights from the windows, but the bishop decided that if the lights didn't come back on, we would just have Sacrament meeting. So we were all praying really hard, and went forward with everything. We started Sacrament, and as we all took our breath to start the opening song, the lights flickered on! I knew they were going to come back on, so it was a great testimony to me that the power of prayer is so real.
Last Monday, we went to one of our investigators' house and did origami with his little brother. It was so fun! I love all the friendships we get to build out here :)
Wednesday was Zone Conference!
Saturday we were on exchanges and I got to go to the Stillaguamish ward in Arlington
Keep reading your scriptures, saying your prayers, and going to Church!
