We are teaching a girl who has cerebral palsy, and it's been a tremendous blessing. She is such an example to me of the power of prayer. When she prays, it is so special, the sincerity and closeness of her relationship with God is unreal. Her lessons are very special because we teach very simply, and we end up learning more from her in my opinion.
One of my favorite things about being in a trio is that companionship Study is so much fun! We have been doing a ton of role plays lately, acting out people as someone else has to try to share the gospel with. Cowboys, flirty girls, grumpy 80 year old fisherman w/o a shirt. It's effective and it always brings laughter.
This week the other elders moved out, so we now only have three in the apt and after we cleaned today it's sooooo nice! We can see the floor, we don't have to rush to get ready as 3 people are trying to use one bathroom. Not having to worry about whose food is whose... it's just a relief.
We've been doing a lot of walking lately and we've picked up kind of a game as we walk. Especially in the middle of the day when literally no one is out, we'll be looking for coins either alongside the sidewalk or the road! We've committed to get something as a companionship at the end of this transfer. I'm still in the process of convincing them to save up for a special date for Elder Tanuvasa when he gets home from his mission lol. Emphasis on in the process.
Florida really hasn't had much rain lately, but the ONE time this week where it rained, we got caught riding in it... of course... it was a nice cool down, but we had to take a shower after...
Since there was a drought and barely any rain, there have been a ton of fires. This week there was one a few miles from our apartment. It was over 120 Acres and I'm pretty sure they still at this moment don't have it contained... we'll see how that goes.
I was asked by the Primary President to play the piano for the primary program on Mother's Day so that will be exciting! I'll try not to ruin the day with my playing haha on a mother music note. There are a few mission Firesides that are meant to help members brings friends to, and after the last musical number that we did, we were asked to sing in it.. it'll be a pretty far drive, but I'm excited because it will be in my old building
We had a prompting to go visit this Less Active couple, we found out that they were pretty recently married and young. Through the lesson, she told us that she never thought that she'd be the one that needed the missionaries to come knocking on her door, in fact she had promised herself that she wouldn't be. It was a really sad situation and it was a big smack in the face that no one sees it coming until it's too late.
