Killing Chickens and Having a Baby
This week was a crazy, not normal, really fun week!
Of course I picked up my baby! I'm a mom and it's a girl!! ..I guess that would be really awkward if it wasn't a girl.. Anyway, her name is Sister Bentz and she is from California too! We got along the minute we met.
I love training! Sometimes it is a little overwhelming because I feel a little inadequate, but I guess you just have to fake it til you make it. (Wonderful advice from my dad) Apparently it's working because we have found people and set baptismal dates with them every single day this week! It's been crazy!
Then one of our first actual days together we went to help with an eagle project, which was plating cactus.. cacti? Whatever. Let's just say we got poked by those little needle things EVERYWHERE. I had to use tweezers to get them out of Sister Bentz. It was quite the adventure.
Then the next day we did another service project! ..killing chickens. I am NEVER doing that again! Breaking necks and plucking feathers is definitely not my thing. I'm just going to cross that one off my bucket list and never look back.
Oh! And we had people come to church! We have been working with this one less active member. I met her when I first got here and it has been my GOAL to reactivate her. She has always just been really really nervous to go back. So my companion and I talked a lot about that quote about 20 seconds of courage. If we have 20 seconds of courage, we can accomplish anything! And guess what! SHE CAME! I almost cried when I saw her. It's all about having courage. Even if it only lasts for 20 seconds, you'll accomplish great things!
That's all for this week! I love you all!Hermana Hunt :)
