Wanderers in a strange land

Hello everyone, but mostly Scout,

I am currently sitting here in a computer cafe listening to Elders sing "Think Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood, so you could say the work here is really progressing. haha

It was a good week! We had an FHE with our investigator and another member and her 2 kids.  We had pizza and he (our investigator) played his guitar and it really felt like we were all just one big really weird family. hahaha It was fun! :)

I hope that Grandpa had a wonderful birthday! I hope Marisa has a great birthday this week too! (And Claudia as well! :)

We were contacting in a park yesterday and a giant dog ran at us. It just wanted to say hi though, because it's not from these parts! The dog's dad and daughter started talking to us, and Spanish was not their first language. They're Muslim and from a country that is in both Africa and Europe?? haha They are here for the daughter to go to school. I dont know - something seems fishy! haha maybe it's just both them and us lacking in Spanish!

We had a zone counsel, which was weird because what is a zone counsel? Our zone leader said he had never laughed so hard he cried in the mission, and Hermana Holden and I just sunk down a little in our chairs because we did at least 3 times this week, one of which was because a dog used her as a bathroom. hahaha

Things here are lovely and I found a new favorite scripture that says, "...Blessed be the name of my God who has been mindful of us wanderers in a strange land." Alma 26

I love you all and pray for you all and really hope that everyone remembers that they never walk alone and are loved and have so much worth because they have a loving Father and Savior who know them perfectly and trust in them and their plan for you. Follow the will of God, even when it doesnt match your own desires.

I love you all. Tell someone how much you love them this week! :)

Love Hermana Park
