Things have been crazy! haha words cannot describe. The stress of the area might be getting to Sister Vasquez too much, so I'm not sure how much longer I'll be with her. I just want her to be happy and enjoy her mission.
Okay so this week I got to go to Glenwood Springs for Mission Leader Council. It was so much fun! I got to drive a 2014 Jeep Compass! The elders had to pry me out of that vehicle. I loved it so much. During the meeting an elder got up and his companion chased after him, opened the bathroom door, and we could loud and clear hear him puking. I accidentally made a gagging noise in the middle of the council. Needless to say, it was disgusting. But funny when he walked back in. We all giggled. Poor kid. What makes it more funny, his name is Elder Barfield. hahaha! I hope I'm not the only one that's immature and thinks it's funny. Later I got to relax in the backseat of the car and sleep. That was nice. I had a great time with Sister Pfeifer! It was so great to be with her and away from all the stress of the area for the day.
We have been going on exchanges. Sister Vasquez loves them because she gets to go and relax a little. That's a good thing.
We have been doing service at the Jeffco Action Center. They provide things for homeless. It's been great.
During Friday planning, we knelt on our knees to know when Bernadine could be ready for baptism. We got the answer of Feb. 9th. Than we prayed who could come with us and be a great fellowshipper. Joy Wareham came into our mind. We don't really know her well but we know without a doubt that it was inspired because she was fabulous!!!!
Saturday we had a great day! I was with Sister Smith for the day and we taught a mother and her son who is in his 20's. Bernadine and Ricky Thunderhawk! Cool name huh. Joy Wareham came with. The mood when we first got there was pretty bad, but with the help of the inspired member that we brought, Christ lifted all of Bernadine's sadness off her shoulders. I invited them both to be baptized on February 9th. They were excited to follow Jesus Christ. They were suppose to come to church. We had a ride and everything, but she said she had to go grocery shopping. :( sad. I was pretty bummed. But next Sunday!
We are getting moved into another home. We are just too far from our area. The mission doesn't have enough miles to provide for us. So we are going to a 90 year old lady in the Lakewood ward. We hear great things about her. My first concern was if I was going to find her alive...the members said she is super fit. I'm excited to meet this woman! The McCalls are really sad for us to leave, and we are really sad to leave them. They have helped us so much and were so much fun!
I'm working on trying to get the Branch to change their monthly Friday evening pot luck to Sunday Fast Sundays. "Breaking the Fast" It just know it would be more successful because more people would attend. We need to get this Branch more united.
I got my hair cut! It's fun. It's not much shorter at all because I'm trying to get it longer, but It has more layers so it has more volume and style. woot woot. no more plain Jane Sister Gampe.
I started reading my patriarchal blessing more intensely. I created a list of "Do's" "Bewares" and "Blessings". I find it amazing that the Do's list is so much smaller than the Blessings list. We do so little, but Heavenly Father blesses us so much. I loved that!
I love you all so much! Happy New Year! Time is going so fast! I don't know where it is going!
