Work hard, Preach hard!

May 18th 2015:

Man, Tampa is starting to get really hot! But the Lord blesses us with rain everyday around 5:00. so last Monday we were complaining that it was too hot, so the Lord deiced to dump a huge bucket of water on Tampa, unfortunately we weren’t near any kind of shelter. We had to run to a prespertarian church near by to hide. 
 I have also come to realize that Tampa is just one big mixing pot; I have met people from all over! It is actually pretty cool. Oh, I almost forgot I ATE ALLIGATOR!!!! It was soo good. I would highly recommend putting it on your bucket list of things to try. Well like I mentioned earlier it is hot, and one day Sister Sutton and I wanted ice cream. We went to the nearest grocery store and bought a half gallon of gelato and finished it in 5 minutes. Don't worry I am not getting fat, I do lots of sit ups in the morning. ;) 
 Sister Sutton and I are still pretty new to this whole missionary stuff, and half the time we don't know what we are doing, but apparently we know how to plan. Our STL's called us this week and told us that we were brought up around 4 times in the leadership meeting. President kept telling everyone how good we are at planning. We were really shocked by that. Haha 
   Last Monday we had an appointment with a LA at 3:30. (we were ending our pday like 3 hours early) So we weren't the happiest we were ending our pday to go to a less actives house who isn’t the nicest to the missionaries. We went to her house, and she was in a great mood, she loved our message. Towards the end of the lesson her daughter came over, Sister Mcara (the senior missionary) asked her daughter if she was a member. Sure enough she wasn't, sister Mcara asked her if she would like to hear the missionary discussions! She told us she would love them and set up a return appointment without us even asking her. We had the appointment and she just soaked up everything we said, her husband loved our message and kept saying “It all makes sense now!". The Lord truly does bless those who are diligent! 
 Well TTFN I am going to the aquarium for free! Perks of teaching cool people. ;)
