It's June...already

HI!
Things are good here.... we are seriously lacking people to teach still. So last week we didn't really teach that many lessons... Tina is really close to baptism.. As soon as she breaks up with her boyfriend. 
We had an activity on Saturday at bishops! We invited investigators for a social.... no one really came except one LA. We had brisket burritos, and had a small water balloon fight. It was a lot of fun. bishop is really super cool. He's laid back, and lets us come over for anything we need :)

We had a bet with Adrian a couple months ago, that if he would keep the word of wisdom for 2 weeks, we would wash his bike. He kept it for a month, and then just went all crazy on us. But, we still owed him a bike wash, so we did that on Friday. it was a lot of fun. 
We also helped out with a stake achievement day activity. We helped serve lunch, and I also sang I Am A Child of God after the short testimony meeting at the end. It was fun :)

We had zone conference yesterday, and it was really good. In a breakout session, Sister Miller talked to the sisters about leaving things better than you find them. It reminds me of how dad would always treat our camping spots. Leave no trace. But, we have to apply it to people and places. Inspiration I received, is that we need to remember to smile and have a good time, and to work hard. Look for the good in others, and TELL them. I like to think of leaving a little trail, where people will know where I have been, because they know how they feel when they are around me, and it helps them to feel better and happier. 
I feel a little sluggish lately, so that's something that I'm working on. Another sister in the ward talked about fake it till you make it. It's hard... but if you look and act happy, you will soon feel happier. Did I tell you about my other studies? You sent me that talk from Elder Bednar about the enabling power of the Atonement. he talks about praying to change our strength, rather than praying to change our situations. We are given specific trials and situations, for specific reasons. So heavenly father isn't going to just take them away from us, but we can ask for specific blessings and support, and that He will give to us.  He wants us to succeed, but he knows best what will help us to do so in the eternal perspective. 

Thank you so much for all you do!

Love,
Sis. Brown
