Rain and Thunder
It's your girl :)
A lot of you probably missed my email last week... yeah, I just didn't feel like having anything to say. Don't worry, I am still dying of heat here in Texas.. hahaha but its okay because I am here now and you can now jump for joy that you got your email from your favorite hermana ;) hehe (humble much jaja)
SO THIS WEEK.. We had lots of rain, thunder and lightening, so that meant waiting out the rain because we can't bike in lightening. So one day we decided to just go out and try and go teach people in the bad weather and boom Hermana Whitehead got a flat tire! haha oh my gosh. so we learned our lesson. It'ss better to be safe and wait out the rain then to just go biking in it. It's hard be trapped inside. We would get all ready to leave and then the holy ghost is like, NO! so we go back and learn patience. It's like a roller coaster. TEXAS WEATHER IS AWFUL! This week every day is around 105.. haha Texas make up your mind!!
A night of a bike falling off the back of a car, then biking home with no brakes! PRAY FOR HERMANA WHITEHEAD PLEASE, her poor bike.
Biking home at night here is like MOUNTAIN BIKING IN THE DARK. Don't do it.
awful, sketchy, peligroso.
This week we saw a lot of miracles!! (like always)
we are now helping the cutest little lady from Colombia learn English. It is so humbling because she just looks at us and cries and tells us how bad she wants to learn English and we just sit there and tell her exactly how we feel, because its been so hard to learn Spanish. So we do know how she feels. However, the gift of tongues is real, and she is working so hard! It's a miracle we found her, she moved here from Florida and she was meeting with the missionaries there, so she already knows so much! It was such a miracle!! pray for my girl.. SHIRLEY :)
Then we have ANGEL! this cool guy ( believes in aliens and 4th dimension stuff.. like what?) haha He is probably one of the coolest guys I have met. He loves the Holy Ghost and that's just what he wants He kind of has some weird beliefs right now and all he wants to do is come to church. HE IS SO COOL, he just wants the light of Christ, and we have it. So that's cool right ;) ITS COOL! I think he's going get baptized when he gets work off. So pray for him.
Then I would love to share a biking miracle with yall :)
This happened about 3 weeks ago and I just keep forgetting about it!
So we bike up and down this one road and there are these cement blocks ( like the ones for parking lots.. ya know? ) So there was one of these on the sidewalk. I saw it and within a split second my timing was off, and my pedal was gonna hit it! I saw that happening so I closed my eyes, got ready to fall, tucked my arm in and then a second later I was still on my bike! I opened my eyes and realized that I didn't fall. It was amazing! When we got to the stop light I looked at Hermana Whitehead and she said, "how did you not fall?" I know we have angels with us who are watching over us and protecting us with every step we take, every pedal we bike.. it's amazing.
The mission is crazy.
Houston... oh, Houston....
This week its going be hot.
When we bike down the roads, the only way to describe it like, IT'S LIKE BIKING WITH THE HEAT OF A CAMPFIRE CONSTANTLY. that's all
pray for ya girl :)
PS. Your girl has been on her mission for a year and my Spanish is still bad. I will keep working on it though.
getting ready to go.. left. had to come back.. so sad.
