que pasa, hogar nino?‏

Crazy sister... get it!?

We are teaching ourselves Spanish... :) Through the assistance of the ward mission leader and his wife. I don't have much time to write because I got a little distracted by some other things. So this week in a nutshell:

1. We helped move the Blount family. that was an adventure!
Got both these trucks stuck in the mud when we were helping the Blount Family move
2. We helped John move a lot of limbs/ taught him about the gospel. We are getting somewhere with him. He's a hard egg to crack.
3. We found a guy metal detecting who has been meeting with missionaries in Myrtle Beach and said he thought it was a sign we stopped and talked to him and he wants to go to church. So that was neat!
4. We were able to finally meet a bunch of less actives whom we have never been able to catch. One of them was real excited to see us after she realized we weren't murderers.... :) It took her a while to come to the door. We are going back on Wednesday to help her with some yard work.

Sometimes people, Both members and Elders, think that sisters are second class missionaries just because we are women and don't have the priesthood. In their minds I guess that means that we can't teach as well or we don't work as hard. Here is what I have to say to them: Missionary work is not supposed to be a battle of the sexes. It's not a competition between Elders and Sisters. We work together to bring souls to Christ through baptism. Y'all need to realize and respect the worthy labor that anybody puts forth to find and teach all people about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a hard, hard work. Sisters work as hard as Elders and Elders work as hard as Sisters. If you don't come to the realization that Sisters are just as capable and worthy, you will have a hard time in a couple years on your mission. Elders and Sisters are both set apart by the same power, which is through God. We both represent the same Savior, who is Jesus Christ. Sure, we bring unique abilities to the table, but we work as one for the same purpose. I know that Jesus Christ is the head of this church and this work. It is His work. Y'all are going to be great missionaries! Do all you can to prepare, and just remember that Elders are not better than sisters.
