Birthday Week

Hello family!

I'm not going to say this week was great, it was...different.  That's a good way of describing it.  Different. 
Tuesday we went and had our time.   That was fun.  We watched some really random videos they have on there. But it was good.  Not much else exciting for the rest of the day until dinner.  That was awesome!  We went to the Ortons and Sister Orton made brownies with caramel in them and extra chocolate chips!  They were so good. It was such a fun evening.  They sang happy birthday and then with a little extra.  it was so funny.  They are great!

Wednesday, my Birthday!  That was fun, kindof.  We got a bunch of slushy snow.  It was so heavy and weird.  We decided it would be a good idea to stay a little closer to home and so we changed some of our appointments and helped Judi, our recent convert we are working with and then I helped Nicole, the Swain's daughter with Statistics.  Apparently they were "remodeling" our apt.  Well we came back to grab some things and then go to the Rudy's for dinner when Sam came running down the stairs saying we couldn't go up.  Well we went to dinner and it was soo good!!  They made a peanut butter cake and it was very rich.  We then went back to our apt.  I videoed us walking in and everything because I knew they had done something.  Well they cleaned our apt. and then filled our bedroom with balloons!  It was crazy!  So that was fun. :)

Thursday I got the package from home!  It was so good!  I loved it!  Sister Vanderhoef did too. :)  Schools were cancelled here due to snow so we had to stay and we did our weekly planning. That took some time, but we were able to see chelsea that evening.  It was really good.  We taught her about prophets and watched the movie special witnesses of Christ.  That is a really good movie that I recommend.  Those are the highlights.

Friday, we had district meeting and then district lunch at the pancake house.  It was so much fun.  We helped make them and it was good.  We then met with Judi again and talked to her about family history and going to the temple and doing baptisms for the dead.  It was really good and now she wants to do her family names,so we are getting her in touch with the family history people in our ward.  We then went and helped Nicole make a vegan chocolate cake.  It was pretty good.  We were supposed to have dinner with the swains that night but some things came up, so we finished some visuals we needed to fix up.

Saturday we finished weekly planning then went and saw mary this old italian woman.  She is so funny.  Her basement flooded which was crazy, but it is starting to come back together.  We helped her fix some things and finished teaching her the restoration.  We then stopped by some people and that was fun.  We showed them the motor object lesson and it was good.  We had dinner with the brignano family then had coordination.  :)

Sunday I spoke in church.  I think I forgot to mention that.  But I spoke on Service through missionary work.  As one speaker said it was very fortune cookie sentence structure.  I agree.  It was hard to write the talk.  But it all came together.  We did some tracting had dinner with the gumbs.  Yeah it was a good day.  

So that was my week.  At least the highlights.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Love always and forever,
Sister Lundahl
