Two Weeks in One... What a Mess and Baptizing Russel from "UP"
Hello! Okay so I can't figure out how to send pictures on this computer.. so we'll see how that goes.
This week was great! Highlight of the week.. Sister Pete and I killed a cockroach. We saw it in the bathroom cupboard, but we got scared so we just left it! Then later when we went back it was still there!! So we decided to man up a little bit and just kill it.. so. I got some windex and went in for the kill. It took up like an HOUR because we kept LOSING it! We got it though:) Don't even worry about it. Oh! And we have videos. But can't seem to figure out how to get them onto the computer :(
The other crazy part of the week is that we found out that we are addicted to chocolate.. like for real. We were talking to one of our recent converts the other day who's been having a little trouble with the word of wisdom lately. She told us that she's completely quit coffee if we quit chocolate. Freak. That probably lasted like a day. Shout out to Timmy for the package! Full of CHOCOLATE! :) I hid in the closet and ate one. Whoops. Really though, it's hard! Not to mention Halloween this week! I think I'm just going to have to face the fact that I'm an addict. Yeah I'm not doing this challenge..
Besides that this week was pretty normal. Early shout out to my dad! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Everyone go give him candy and chips! Te quiero mucho papi! I'm giving you a baptism for your birthday this year! Yay for Thursday baptisms!
Alright, her are a couple of pictures..
Stay cool. Stay humble. (I'm trying to work on that one)
The scriptures are true! Read those things!
Con mucho amor,

This week was a great one! Jr. (aka Russel) got baptized! He told us that it was his "dream week." No week could have been any better for him. Since he's only 11.. yes I gave him a little hug after. Everyone laughed at me.. Oh well.
Isn't he a cute fellow?
Okay so I realized that I haven't really talked about missionary work too much lately. Yes I'm really a missionary. So let me tell you a little bit about the people we're working with.
We're working with a family of 7 right now. I LOVE them! Who wouldn't love five little kids running around? Originally it was just the mom and the kids, we had no idea where the dad was.. then randomly one day the dad came back from somewhere in the country. We were a little worried because we knew that he drove missionaries away in the past. We were a little hesitant to talk to him at first, but hey. Fear does not equal faith. So we just did it and invited him to sit in on a lesson with the family. Surprise. He loved it! He has been coming to church for the past couple of weeks! He even came with the kids by himself this last week because the mom got called into work. After church we asked him how he liked it.. and his answer was. "I loved it! I'm really excited to get baptized next week!" WHAT? Yes. The family is getting baptized next week! It's crazy how God blesses us. He can touch anyone's heart, it doesn't matter who it is. I have absolutely fallen in love with the people here in Texas. These relationships will last forever.
Okay now let me tell you a little bit about our Halloween. We had to be back at our apartment by 6:00, but we had a lot of fun! We went to a branch party for a little while, then we went home, made cookies (gluten free) ate popcorn, and watched Doctrine and Covenants movies. MY FAVORITE! We even dressed up. I was Snow White and Sister Pete was Ana from Frozen.. neither of us have seen that movie, but she's a ginger..
Everyone have a great week!
Con mucho amor,Hermana Hunt
