Monday Feb 13, 2017: We found a new investigator today! Her brother is a member and she is really excited to start coming to church! It was really cool to meet her.
Tuesday Feb 14, 2017: We left our apartment this morning and we were passing the National Guard base that is across the street and a fighter jet about landed on top of us! I couldn't get any pictures but it was so close. It landed about 50 ft. from the road so it was only like 50-60 ft. in the air. It was super cool. Nearly every day we see fighter jets take off and fly around in formation. It is pretty sweet. Also, because it was valentine’s day a member took us out to dinner! It was super awesome and fun because we went to a fancy soup and salad place. It was so fun!
Wednesday Feb 15, 2017: Today we had trainer trainee. Basically, it is a meeting with the Mission President and his wife where we get additional training for all of us new missionaries. It was pretty interesting and helpful. It was about personalities and how to improve the relationship with your companion and how to relate to people you meet. Also, today I ate dinner with Elder Lor's family! It was super cool because I met Elder Lor in the MTC!
I stole his cat hahaha

Thursday Feb 16, 2017: Today we went to a door that was on our list of less active members. They didn't live there anymore but the apartment right next to them started calling out "hey missionaries" while we were standing there. It was one of the members that went to a different Ward (Mormon congregations in different areas of town are called wards). She was just getting done with cancer treatment and found out today she was in remission! Super crazy story but a super awesome person to meet. The Lord definitely put us there for a reason. Also, today a member took us to a Pho Restaurant. It was surprisingly good for having squid, lobster, crab, cow stomach/intestine lining and stuff like that in it! My mom has a picture of it that she will put on the blog.
Friday Feb 17, 2017: Today we had the craziest problem ever. One of our investigators we have been teaching wanted to get baptized tomorrow! That is too soon because there are more things we need to teach them but it was super crazy and awesome! Also, Today I was given a Hmong tie! It is a super awesome purple design. All completely stitched in.
Saturday Feb 18, 2017: Today we stopped by a wedding. One of the member’s sons was getting married so we were invited. When we got there, they pulled us in and had us sit at the table of honor! Kinda crazy but pretty cool! There was a full roasted pig all cut up except the head. So, while we were sitting there a big ole roasted pig head was staring at me. hahaha. Pretty cool though!
Sunday Feb 19, 2017: We had church today! I didn't have to translate this week so I was able to sit in the congregation with them members and get to know them. It was fun. Also, I took a picture of the inside of an orange tree while we were visiting some recently baptized members. It looks pretty cool hahaha
In other news, it is flooding everywhere because of all the rain. It is soooooo crazy!
The District: I met elder Lor's family!! Check out Wednesday in my email hahaha.
