My Hectic Week πŸ₯

I don't know about you, but my week was quite normal and boring until about Friday afternoon when the pace picked up quite a bit. We were able to teach two stellar lessons.  One with a girl named Madeline.  She's twelve and has been taught by the missionaries for about a year now.  However, she can't come to church because her mom works some crazy hours because she's a nurse.  But we continue to go over there once a week and share a spiritual thought or lesson with her.  She's so in-tune with the spirit :) The other lesson was with a member referral who is the girlfriend of a less-active member (what can I say?  Less-actives give the best referrals).  Her name is Suzannah. Anyway, we met with a member as well as Suzannah in a member's home, and we hit it off right from the start.  It honestly felt like we had known each other for ages. (Reference to the pre-mortal life, maybe?). But since she had such good contact with members in her life, she knew all the right questions to ask.  We literally sat and discussed doctrine for almost 2 hours.  This girl is the definition of Gold and at no point did she have a personal belief that contradicted what we know to be true.  It was an amazing experience for all three of us and we have plans to meet with her again this weekend. We got out of her lesson at 8:30 and one would think that after that there'd be no more story for Friday night.  Wrong. I got a frantic knock on the bathroom door while I was brushing my teeth just a few minutes before 10:30pm.  Apparently Sister Vespucci had swallowed a toothpick so we needed to run to the ER.  To put it simply, we spent 5 hours at one ER that night, were sent home, then were told by the mission president's wife the next morning to go to a different ER and then spent the whole day there.  Do not worry, everything is fine.  We're back to proselyting normally.  But it was really hectic in the moment. Moral of the story - know what's in a cup before you decide to drink out of it.

Love you all so much and hope you have a great week!

What do you do when you've spent 5 hours at the ER?
You stop by Burger King on the way home for ice cream, fries, and crowns.
