happy birthday twinner :)

Hey y'all!
First of all, I want to apologize for completely forgetting father's day.  So Dad, I hope you had a good one.  :)  also I hope you know that I love you dearly.  Second of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SARAH!!  I sincerely hope it's a good one for ya too.  Hey and as mom says, you're turning 21, her favorite number!  There couldn't be much better than that. 
Anyways, thanks for signing up for all my classes Sarah.  Seriously you're the best.  And honestly I can't remember what any of those places are to live so by all means you can go ahead and pick somewhere.  I tell ya, I can hardly remember anything from before my's so weird!
Today's our last day to write President Wall.  Goodness, it's so weird to think we'll be getting a new mission president.  I wonder what he'll be like.  President Wall doesn't leave this week but next week our whole mission is gonna spend two hours biking on pday as the last and final ride for President, cause he loves riding bikes.  And then the week after President Hansen will be coming. 
Ya know, I believe that God loves us so much he'd do anything to make us happy.  Last week it was so hot I was dying.  So in my prayers I just said, "Man, I can't do this anymore.  Please cool down the weather just a tiny bit if you can."  And guess what happened?  It's been raining practically the whole week!  Mercy it's just little tender miracles that make your day.  It rained so much too it was awesome.  :)  oh and there was even a tornado over in Plaquemine.  Don't worry, everyones fine, but so crazy!  Ain't God good? 
Some exciting news around here...Sister Easley turned 94 yesterday!  I love that lady so much.  Freak I hope I can be like her one day.  Whenever we go to visit her she always says, "eat anything you want" and really does mean it.  Haha it's hilarious.  And you can just feel how much she loves God as soon as you walk into her home.  Man, I just love everything about her.           
Ooh the other exciting thing that happened this week was that we got to go over to New Roads to contact some media referrals and people that went to the Gladys Knight performance.  It's definitely weird leaving Baton Rouge, it just feels like I'm going across the country when really it's just across the river and a bit.  It was sweet though because we got to give out seven copies of the Book of Mormon.  So many people had never even heard of the church before.  The only downside is we only go over there once every six months or so and church is forever away.  But hey that's the least of our problems.  Oh my here's a story from the other side of the river for y'all.  We received this media referral way back forever ago for a lady that wanted a bible and she lived across the river.  So we just called her and said we probably couldn't make it over but asked if we could mail it to her so she said yes.  So we figured we might as well stop by since we were already gonna be over there and see if she ever got the package.  So we drive up and the address is this old abandoned/burned down motel in the middle of this little neighborhood.  We were just like, "nah, this can't be it" so we drove around again.  We knocked on another door thinking we had the wrong address written down but nope.  So we drove by again, and again.  And just figured we'd try to go knock on the door because there was a car in the gate.  So we walk over and all the gates are locked.  This lady in a trailer next door opens her door and yells over, "go to the other gate."  So we were just like, "hmm might as well."  Got in but nobody answered the door.  We walk around the corner and there's this guy opening the gate for his car.  And I just thought, "man, he's gonna get mad at us for sneaking in through the gate" so we sneak back out the way we came in.  Right when we were walking over the ditch the car with that man drives away and there's a lady in the back with the window down yelling something at us but he just keeps driving away.  We thought they'd drive back around but that was it.  Such a strange experience. 
And that's pretty much our whole week right there for ya.  :)  Haha just kidding.  We had stake conference that was really weird but good.  And we gave out a total of seventeen copies of the Book of Mormon.  It was a pretty good week if I do say so. 
Anyways, I gotta go write president.  Hope y'all have a great week! 
Love Always, Sister Schmutz
