Christmas Party

I asked Shay what I should tell the ward, when I speak about her mission on the 27th.  This is her response:

 Tell them the secret to missionary work is work. Ha-ha it’s hard!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Guess I won’t be taking the full 10 mins. Lol!

Your week sounds so fun!!! It’s been raining lots here! :P the elders baptized an 89 year old lady named "Lady" on Saturday it was cool. These pictures are from the mission Christmas party, it was so fun! I looove Hermana Bluth, she’s great! She calls me "my cowgirl" every time she sees me which is often, since I’m so close :D  Mom they had GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It literally doesn’t exist here! They made gravy for everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was in heaven!

                                                          Hermana Bluth, her mission mom.

I miss you guys so much! Tomorrow two newbies are going to come stay with us until they get there trainers :) and I know them from the ccm! Woohoo Hemanas Lange and Neilson, they’re super great :) I like them a lot and one of them is going to be in my sector! Yay! Random side thought but Afton Law is like my best bud here: D I hope were comps some day!
I’ll always be smiling I like it much more than the other option, I’m in a different country with people I never met before, might as well laugh! I’m much more pleasant that way :D

 Mataya darling! What did you sing? I sing in people’s houses it's super weird. My companion is like "hi can we sing for you?" and they’re like, "yeah" and we sing and then turn friendly chit chat into the restoration, it’s kind of epic. Super random things can connect to the gospel. I’m so excited to call you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll bet you did awesome! 
The branding pic is super cool! Wish I was there :)  Hermana law and I were walking out of the Christmas activity and something with cow crap was around there. We both inhaled deeply, ahh that smells more like home, and then we started laughing because we smelled cow pies and thought it was delightful! My comp fell asleep in the wrong room, on the wrong bunk the other night, ha-ha I took a picture before I woke her up. I was in the shower and she was going to change the sheets or something, I’m not sure.  She didn’t quite make it! It’s crazy how tired we are :P definitely the prayers are working because at this stage I would be asleep or incoherent :) but I’m still smiling and happy!
Hermana Nelson, Hill, and Ricagno

Look what I got!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My companion is tempting me to open it, but I’m waiting until Christmas! 
Look at the tree in the back, it has Christmas decorations. That wouldn't last very long here with our wind.
