WEEK 36- comp unity and Rexy!


So, this week sis p and I hit our 8 month mark. It was really weird. But what better way to celebrate, (missionary style) than by tracting door to door!!!!! the pouring rain...... yes that's exactly what happened! We thought that it would be a good idea......but maybe our brains aren't fully developed yet because we both got super sick and spent the next day confined to our beds with tissues and medicine. That was not so fun. Sis p got it worse than me. she could hardly even talk.....which semi defeats the purpose of going out to do missionary work. We were totally laughing though at our companionship unity....we do everything together... we even get sick together:) We got out and worked the next day though. I ended up needing to do most of the talking. Her voice is still a little sick sounding, even today. But we feel better!!! We both got priesthood blessings, and that always helps.

Also, this week we got a new car! Our 2011 toyota corolla, named Bruce, is going back to Oahu today. We got a 2014 Chevy cruise! we named it Rexy...because it's license plate starts with RXZ.
So we went from 64,000 miles to 64 miles. The church takes really good care of the missionaries.

We have been teaching a lot of little kids this week. It is very interesting to have to teach things so differently, so that they can understand. We have to come up with new ways to explain things, and a lot of analogies. I have decided two things: one, I don't think that I have what it takes to be a 3rd grade teacher. Two, these little kids are so important to Heavenly Father. They are so innocent, and they have the desire to be good. They know when something is good, and they are eager to learn. We love seeing the way they change as they learn more about Jesus Christ and His gospel.

We're also working with K towards baptism. It is really on the line. She has a lot of outside influences and pressures, but she really wants it. So please keep her in your prayers. We know that Heavenly Father's love for her is stronger than any other influence that is pulling on her.

One more thing that we have been noticing this week, we need the help of the members in our ward!  Maybe the missionaries in your area need help giving rides to church, or maybe they need help in some other way. But I guarantee that they could use your help!!!!!!!!!!!! so ask the missionaries in your area how you can help them! This is the Lord's work, and we can all feel the blessings of being a part of it as we work together.

Onward Christian Soldiers! Have a wonderful week!

Much love,
Sister Hodgson
