Birthday Week!

Hi y'all!

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes it really was a great week!
Sister Atkins is the best and also a little sneaky. We normally have a
meeting with some of the other missionaries nearby every Wednesday,
except this week it was moved Friday. Sister Atkins worked with the
Elders and the other sisters to convince me that district meeting was
back on for Wednesday. Long story short they had this whole act of how
we were running late to our meeting and getting lost when really they
were surprising me and taking me out to Mexican. It was a lot of fun
and delicious 😋.

This week we worked a lot with less active members. We were able meet
with a couple people this week. One of them was a Samoan woman who we
didn't think was baptized. We have been trying by her house for a
while now and we're finally able to meet her. She is really funny and
we talked with her Saturday night and invited her to church. She came
on Sunday and even bore her testimony in sacrament meeting. We were happy that she came.

Also fun fact about Texas. Everyone and their dog has a dog even their
dog's dog. Even in apartment complexes. Also, most people don't like
picking up after their dogs. This equals having a smelly front yard
and dogs barking and keeping us up some nights. Also sometimes when it is
dark you run over dog poop. Somehow I don't miss Caroline as much on
my mission as when I was up at college when I didn't see any dogs.

I love being here in Texas serving the Lord!

Hope y'all have a great week!
