Modeling...Not Your Usual Proselyting Experience!

Dear Family,

Let´s see what comes out...I am going to jump around :D!

Firstly, Angie and Cathi are not going to be getting baptized this week. We are going to tell them today! Hermana Ramirez and I feel that they aren´t quite ready to get baptized, but probably in the next three or four weeks! It makes me a little sad to know that I will not be here, but I am happy to know that they will be super prepared!!!  Keep praying for them!

Fun stories:
-We went to visit a sister who is less ative and she began to tell us that she modeled as a teenager...when she was younger....and a lot skinnier! So she started to show us the way that she modeled clothing on the runway...she started waltzing up and down the room and turning and spinning....keeping her face completely serious the whole time!  Hermana Ramirez and I almost died...Later she wanted to show us that she took ballet when she was a kid and she stood up and began to show us a step called ¨the dove¨. Just imagine :D!!!

-We had our weekly activity in our branch and a bunch of children came. They wanted to play volleyball with we started a game of monkey in the middle...The four missionaries (Hna Ramirez , Elder
Eiker, Elder Devashrayee, and I) were on the outside and the children were all in the middle. It was super fun! After awhile, they didn´t seem to like it too much because they never got the ball (the perks of
having an Elder who is super tall and plays basketball)...

-We went out visiting with our Ward Mission Leader, which was great!  What was even more fun, was that he brought along his puppy (a lab) that was insane! As we were walking along, the puppy ran through a bunch of mud puddles and ended up covered in black mud. Then as we kept walking the puppy stopped and jumped all over the people who were walking nearby! I think my favorite was when the puppy ran after a teenager who was in all white pants and left paw prints all over him!  The poor teenager was super upset. We had to tell our ward mission leader that the next time he comes out with us, he cannot bring his puppy, hahaha!

Anyway these are a couple of the funny things that happened to us this week!  I also have been playing the piano in my branch, and they have been testing my knowledge! They have decided that they want to sing four hymns every Sunday and that they don´t want to repeat! They have picked some challenging hymns and they expect me to play them! I on the other hand, feel very unprepared, but I do my best. I know this sounds crazy, but I am pretty sure that I play the piano much better than any other time in my life! I was thinking about this experience a lot this week! The Lord asks us to do things, that sometimes we don´t feel capable of doing, but if we put in our best effort, the Lord magnifies our small attempts! Often in the mission I have felt like I am trying to do things that I really do not have the ability or patience to do. But as I try to do my best, the Lord makes up the rest! I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father, who always answers my prayers!

Have a great week,
Hermana McMurray
