So President Called Me Last Night.... - Letter 12/15/14

Feliz Navidad!! Buenos Dias!,
How was everyone's week? Mine was pretty fantastic! We have been working a lot with Esteban getting him ready for him baptism next Saturday! Sister Thompson and I have also been working at the lights, and teaching lots of people! 
So transfer calls happened last night and... I've been called to be the Phoenix Sister Training Leader, so that means I will be going to all the big meetings and doing lots of trainings to help the sisters. They usually don't call a missionary as young as me as a Sister Training Leader, so I'm quite shocked!! President and Sister Toone said that they felt prompted to call me as a Leader!! What the what!! I'm stoked and I'm ready to learn A LOT!
Sister Thompson and I have been working a ton trying to get everything ready for Christmas. Missionary life during Christmas is thebomb.com.  Everything is so focused on the Savior I love it! 
So I have a story for all of  you today.  Thursday night we were working at the lights, and we were walking the outer edge of the temple grounds and this guy came and shoved anti-literature in my face. He was screaming in my ear and was yelling all sorts of profane things about our church. I just brushed it off and called security, there was a mob of about 40 antis who were yelling nasty things.  I wanted to say, "come on people it's just Christmas lights!".. It was ridiculous.
Friday night we went to the lights as a ward, it was packed. We watched some videos with our ward at the Visitors Center and I got compliments that my Spanish is starting to sound like a native... haha CHA-RIGHT!  No, but my Spanish is so much better since I've come to Phoenix.
Well, I don't have a ton to say this week it's been really good and I hope everyone is doing well!
Con Amor,

It's beginning to look a lot like Christm... oh wait I'm in Arizona - Letter 12/08/14

Buenos Dias Todos!

Como estado? Estoy bien! This week has been great. I have been working at the Christmas lights and we had Zone Conference. It's been a pretty normal week, nothing out of the ordinary. Wednesday night we worked at the lights for the first time, and it rained cats and dogs. We got soaked but it was still really fun! We bought a Christmas tree, and some lights and decorated our little apartment. It's been fun seeing everyone's decorations. People go all out here for decorating their houses. I thought my neighborhood did pretty good, but no it's nuts here!... and to add to it fake snow.

Something spiritual that happened this week is we FINALLY put someone on date! His name is Estaban he is 9 years old. He's getting baptized the 27 of December and he's super excited. We have to start meeting with him more frequently to get prepared for the baptism, but we are super excited. Another thing was Zone Conference it was super spiritual and helped me a ton! 

So I have a really fun story this week. Sister Thompson and I went to a less active's house and we were locking up our bikes and Sister Thompson accidentally stepped in dog poop. We didn't notice until we had gotten into the house. I kept smelling something funky, and smelled my coat, but could not figure it out. Finally our LA goes, "Is everything OK?" because I kept smelling myself.. awkward. I look down and Sister Thompson is covered in poop. Literally. All of the ladies tile floor, her bag, and her shoes. Sister Thompson left the room and I ended up teaching the whole lesson while she was in the bathroom cleaning her shoes. It was so funny. She ended up having to throw her shoes away.. Long story short, WATCH YOUR STEP.

Well that's all I got for this week. I'm sending out Christmas cards this week!! If you want one email me!

Love you all,

8 Months Already??? Letter 12/01/14

Hello Family and Friends!  This week has been great.  Thanksgiving was awesome and I'm looking forward to Christmas. We had a regular dinner with the English sisters at their ward. We also ate with a member. As a zone we watched Frozen and played ping pong and got to have Thanksgiving off.

I will also send pictures of the lights I start working this week, anyways things are good.  I crashed on my bike a few days ago and hurt my wrist and got scratches all over, but ehh it's life. My new motto haha  "Life's hard, then you die, and then they throw dirt in your face."

I've been out 8 months this week and my mission is almost half way done. Sorry,  I don't have tons to write this week but I hope everyone is doing well.

Love you all!
Hermana Greenhalgh
