so my little sister Abigail requested more details about what I do
so let's see if this works. . .

Monday we did laundry and studies, went shopping. We went down to San
Jose to see the Sisters Closet, also referred to as the dungeon. It's
basically just clothes missionaries left when they went home or people
just didn't need anymore or trade ins etc. So that was fun. I got
three new shirts, but of course no skirts. Yay. Also I got to see my
mission sister, Sister Doig. Sister Palmer trained her too - for half
of her training. Sister Doig was then "adopted" cause Sister Palmer
transferred. Sister Doig is now training my niece. xD yay missions. We
went home and ate lunch then went to the church for my favorite part
of pday - emailing. The Livermore missionaries came down to play
sports with us, but by the time we were done emailing everyone expect
the elders in our area needed to leave - after finding a ladder to get
down some volleyballs which had accidentally gotten stuck on some
ledges. Of course it took eight elders to figure out how to work the
ladder. Lol. We played gaterball, which is basically soccer with some
stipulations. Split in two teams. The goals are one chair at each end
of the room. You can catch and hold the ball if someone kicks it up to
you, and the goal is to somehow hit the other teams chair. Of course,
being missionaries, we don't keep score, but it is always a lot of
fun! :) we then went to dinner. We had an appointment with a member
who lives on the military base so we wanted to find out what we needed
to do to get in but couldn't find the entrance gate. Talked to the
stake president - and I don't know if I mentioned this to anyone other
than my sister Natalie,  but his daughter is serving with one of my
friends from back home, Sister Adair! :) we went and talked to sister
Tukuafu. She is just amazing.

Tuesday (lol Aggi, this might be longer than you thought!) we did
studies and went to Open Heart kitchen. Usually we help make soup or
something for the elderly. It is a lot of fun and my favorite service.
I love the managers too. They always play music. ;) this time we went
to the serving side - where we actually serve the food made on the
other side. Went to eat lunch. Kindof figured out how to get onto the
military base - we thought. We saw the Crugers (we were teaching the
son before he turned eight and just kept teaching the family to help
uplift their spirits). Took Books of Mormon contacting - I think we
actually gave one out to someone who didn't live in the mission but
that's okay. He had a really cute little girl with him, I think around
Lisa's age. We tried to see some people the ward council asked us to
see. Went to dinner. Tried to see some new move ins.

Wednesday we did studies (like always xD) and went to open heart. Ate
lunch. There was a miscommunication about district meeting - there was
none, which we were not told. Went to see Sister Bucholz - after
trying to see less actives with no one being home. Tried to go to our
appointment in the military base but there were complications, so we
couldn't get in. Saw Sister Maio. It was her birthday and we could
only stay a couple minutes so we decided to try another day. Stopped
by the Bishops house, and they offered to feed us - they were already
feeding the elders and we didn't have a dinner, so we helped her make
dinner. Saw Nicole.

Thursday we did studies then went to ACS. We usually organize clothes
or something - but this time we cleaned silver. Ate lunch. Went to
district meeting as a zone, which was fun. Took a picture with Sister
Treuhaft. Saw Eric. The Yips offered to feed us because we didn't have
a dinner. Went to see Connie - and her roommate Lauren who is also
less active, came out to see us. :)

Friday we did studies. Went to open heart. Ate lunch. Did weekly
planning. Saw Sister Yip. Saw the Caldeiras. Ate dinner at Panda - and
a member (a traveling nurse) from salt lake paid for our food. Saw
Sister Maio.

Saturday we had correlation. This day was full of just trying to see
less actives and contacting and we met two less actives while
contacting and those were interesting conversations. Went to the Yips
for lunch. Set up an appointment with a new move in. Went to dinner
and then continued to try and see people.

Sunday was normal. We went to church from 7:30-5. Met with a less
active and two investigators - the less actives son and friend. Went
to dinner. Tried to see people again.

Funny how as it went along the days got shorter. . . Lol. xD

I love and miss you all!!!!
