Santa Cruz 11

Hello to all! How goes it??

Our week was pretty eventful :)

So monday  we made mom's split pea soup with a member and it was awesome. :) Sister Palmer had never had it before, and enjoyed it. We thankfully had extra. :) Awesome Sister Palmer quote "I thought I saw a P-day - wait. My bad. There is no P-day." - because it flies by soooooooooooo fast!

Tuesday was Zone Conference. It went from 9am-2:30 pm. LONG. But apparently that length was usual. Okay. So it was awesome. We always have a pre-reading for our big missionary meetings and this time they were "A Reservoir of Living Water" by David A. Bednar, and "A Discussion on Scripture Study" by President Eyring. It was awesome. :) But we were fed, which was good, and I now have a tie. They were technically for the elders but there were some extra ones, so. . . . . :) Our dinner that night was had at Chili's with a member. :)

Wednesday we saw a less active in the morning. Had a random lunch at home.  Saw Nicolette the recent convert (finishing up her recent convert lessons!! we are now on laws and ordinances). Saw a less active and her son after dinner. They have an adorable Kitten!! :D Then we went and did some ward splits - but no other sisters showed up. It was fun though. :)

Thursday the coordinating sisters came down and made us pancakes. :) We had an awesome talk about finding. Also they wanted to talk about the October outgoing (the fireside where lots of missionaries who are going home that transfer speak and there are some musical numbers) because Sister Palmer and I want to sing in it (so many people want to sing for this one!!! PRESIDENT IS SINGING!!!!!). We want to sing, but it doesn't mean we will. They are still deciding. We would sing hymn number 165, Abide With Me; Tis Eventide, both of us singing the chorus', I would sing the first verse, and Sister Palmer would sing the second, and both of us would sing the third. The entire time Sister Palmer would be singing in FRENCH. :) I convinced her to sing with me. :) If it happens it will be awesome. :) After the coordinating sisters left, we saw a less active who has a lot of dogs. xD

So the referral system has been throwing lots of old referrals at everyone in the mission because the iPads are new and everything, and we found someone who was already in our phone. She was referred by a friend about a year ago and some sisters before us had tried to meet with her in april, but it didn't happen. She has been prepared by her friend, because her friend has told her a lot about the church. We called her and asked if she would like to meet - and she said does 4pm work? and we of course said yes. So we met with her and taught her the Restoration and invited her to be baptised and she said YES!!!! :) So we asked when she would like to meet again and she said saturday! (NO SKIPPING FRIDAY TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED!)

After dinner we went to see a less active named Brenda and she wants to have a pizza party with us on the 4th. :)

Friday we didn't have much happen. Some of our appointments fell through. :( We did weekly planning, had lunch, then went contacting for a bit. Saw a less active family. Had dinner at I-Hop with some members. Sister Palmer started telling me the Jane Austen Books by memory :) (she still needs to do emma, but the others are done). Another funny Sister Palmer "Satan makes GPS's" - because our church building doesn't show up on it.

Saturday we met with our new investigator for lunch. Her name is Liz. We taught her the Plan of Salvation and SET A DATE FOR HER TO BE BAPTISED!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D Then we went to visit a less active who is returning to church and recently went to the temple :) Then our service didn't answer the door - but she does that sometimes. So we went contacting.

Sunday was a primary program in one of the wards and it was adorable!!!! :)  Our investigator didn't come to church so we will have to move her date back, but she is coming to the YSA FHE (which means that we get to go, lol).

Today some of the sisters from monterey are coming up to visit -and I will tell you more of that next week. :)

thought they were cool

we did not actually go in, but it is really funny


It's the Cheshire cat moon!! Yes, we do get that here. We also have very limited stars. . . 

Love and miss you all


Sister Kelly

more sister Palmer funnies: a sister Palmer funny "Will you follow the example of missionaries before you and invite my iPad to be baptised?" - we were doing baptismal invitations during training. lol. :)
