The One Where Freedom Doesn't Ring

Get it? Cause my mom is Freedom and it was Independence Day?

Anyway, here is an update:

Tuesday, June 27th
Had a "funeral" for one of our elders, Elder Floyd. He is by far the funniest human ever. He is so apathetic and he is super sarcastic. He is from Vegas so we put a Vegas skyline on the chalkboard and instead of playing amazing grace we just played slot machine noises lol. Then we all went to a jank pizza place lol. And we went to the Johnson family. They are the most adorable family ever. He served his mission in South America and she majored in Spanish and now they are both Spanish teachers. and their kids are bilingual now. Except the baby one speaks in spanglish and it is so cute. He legit sounds like a little mouse. and he just wants to be held all the time.

We went to a place called Poche's with the Chappelles and I had rice that was filled with chicken liver and gizzard and it was hecka spicy but wasn't too bad. And they told us a story of how she hustled a man in Vegas so that was cool.

We had family home evening with Williams. Solange (his granddaughter) said she loves our church and wants to be taught! She is adorable. Some guy asked Sis. Manuma what her race was in the gas station and she said Samoan. and he turned to me and was like "you too?" and I was like "uh.. I'm from Utah." LOL

Elder Hall from my mtc district went home this morning because he tore his acl and had to go home to get surgery and he won't be back for 6-9 months! 

Saturday, July 1st
New mission president got in!! Went to another baptism for the Lafayette sisters. Basically diabetes because they had so much dessert. The park next to our apartment had a soft grand opening and fourth of July kickoff so we walked there. It is the biggest park ever! They have two baseball arenas, two ponds, tons of basketball courts and tennis courts, a splash pad, a football field, a soccer field, and two playgrounds. It's legit! And right next to our house! #contactingGOLD!! They had fireworks and it was amazing! But it was so unbelievably hot. It was kind of miserable.

fast Sunday. We visited a less active who just had surgery to remove her salivary gland. Yep, her salivary gland because she had stones. Yikes.

Monday, July 3rd
We drove to Baton Rouge early to "heart attack" the new mission president's house. And then we had the most amazing zone conference ever! I am so excited for this mission president. He is amazing. He said a lot of things I really needed to hear. He is so on fire too, he memorized EVERY missionary in the mission's name and where they are from before he even got here.

(Getcha someone who looks @ you the way Smeltz does)

Tuesday, July 4th
YAY! We had two meal appointments and ate more than I ever have in my life. but so good! Didn't really get to see fireworks. But we played a haunted game and it was so fun! (I won too!) But we are having the real pday/fourth of July celebration today. With BBQ sparklers and everything with the whole district! I guess I will tell y'all about it next week.
