This week was, well a normal week of the mission. I feel like every time I say, “This week was crazy!” So now that’s just normal for me. #CrazyWeeks
I had interchanges with the incredible Sista O. We both love singing like gospel/soul/hallelujah music so we incorporated that into our hymns as we sang to people throughout the day. #HopOnTheSoulTrain #Amen
A gecko definitely pooped on me in a lesson last night and a bird peed on me this morning. #WhatIsLife
It RAINED. We were DRENCHED. It started at 12… no one let us in their house… we were in the pouring rain for eight hours. #RainRainGoAway. But really, I enjoyed it. The rain keeps a big smile on my face all day, I absolutely love it. Just hard to get into homes. Hi we are missionaries, you don’t know us, and we are drenched, and we want to go in your house, and talk about Jesus with you and your family, is that okay with you? #Ya
Our investigator told us how he had to work for his wife. When he saw her, he told himself he would do anything to win her heart. He had to work for her father for like a year, and then he got to marry her. They have been married for 28 years now. So cute! #Love #ILoveLove
Sister G told me, “You were a cat before this life because you are weird.” Hahaha! #Friendship
Well woopdedoo. Bike problems once again… my back tire literally exploded. Like. Ya. #WeHaveBeenWalking
On Monday we went to LAMANAI! Aka the submerged crocodile ruins. So awesome. We took a boat tour, totally saw three crocodiles, fed a monkey a banana, and climbed some intense ruins. Aka where do I live? this is awesome.
Do we settle halfway in our own lives? It made me think about my own life and things that I can really push for, to keep working for. Things that maybe I’m just fine at, but really I can be better at. And it reminded me of a CS Lewis quote, “There are far, far better things ahead then any we leave behind.” It was a booster for me to remind that the Lord has so much in store for us, He wants to push us out of our comfort zones or just at levels where we feel fine and reach to the highest of our abilities! We don’t even know there’s more to it, but He does. So I want to just encourage you all, to go above expectations and don’t settle for less, don’t look back, and keep on climbing!
You are all awesome! Fam, I’ll talk to you this Sunday at 6, WOOOOOO!
Peace and blessings,
Tori sent lots of pictures this week. I kind of think she is a good photographer…. Here are some of my favorites:
