One of our zone goals for this transfer is to try to do more service projects. Our district is supposed to have one once a week but this was the first week we actually had one. We actually did two, one in the Elders' area and then one in Sister Suminguit's and Sister Tereke's area. For the one in Elder Malmrose and Elder Holden's area, we helped a rich, non-member clean the backyard of one of her houses. The house has been a work-in-progress for like, almost ten years now and is the nicest house I've seen since I've been here. For the other service project we cleaned the backyard of one of the Sister's in our ward. Both service activities were really fun. I miss doing work like that and I miss guys, really. Being with girls 24/7 is fun most of the time, but yeah... I miss my brothers and my dad and my mtc elders and just guys in general. Sister Tereke found this huge spider on an old ironing board. She calmly pointed it out to me to which I responded, "Ew. Gross." We then showed Elder Malmrose and Elder Anderson who both freaked out and started screaming (I was just glad they didn't swear... Elder Malmrose sounded like he was going to) and they both ran inside the house, still freaking out. The rest of us were dying of laughter... so much for them being tough men. The spider then jumped off of the board and scurried off into more of the trash. The elders screamed again, afraid it was going to come after them I guess. They spent the rest of our time there working on the opposite side of the yard, jumping at anything that moved, and telling us that if we saw it, we needed to tell them so they could get a picture of it to send to their girlfriends... If only their girlfriends knew how they reacted when they saw it... :)
Anyways... so overall this week was awesome, talaga. I miss everyone and I've especially missed watching general conference with my family at home, but I'm really excited to get to watch it here with our ward next weekend.
Hope everyone has an awesome week! You're all in my prayers always!Love, Sister Dickison
