I don't even know how to begin! :) :)
Well to start off- we taught a total of 28 lessons. Let me repeat, that was TWENTY EIGHT lessons! Crowfoot Ysa ward hasn't hit that number in years. Let me tell ya- I'm still jumping up and down with excitement.
And WE GOT A NEW INVESTIGATER. His name is Denzel, his friend John invited him to take to lessons at his home. Johns dad is actually Elder Hillier Of the Seventy, so that's pretty cool I guess :)
And just you wait- theres still some more exciting news. :)
We invited him (Denzel) to be baptized- AND HE SAID YES!!! He's getting baptized next Saturday, the 22nd :) :) :) He's already been to church 3 times and he loves it, so no worries there.
President Toombs actually came to the lesson with us. He has been trying to go to all set first discussion lessons, because he wanted to get back out there and teach. So that was super frightening for him to be sitting right next to us- but it went really really well so that's a relief.
This past week I have never been happier. I absolutely LOVE my new companion. Seriously though, she is the sweetest girl I have ever met. We haven't had an major or minor really disagreements at all. Shes a little bit of a slob- she has 987907034906 clothes so that's always fun.
I'm a little in shell shock because this week has gone so incredibly well. The beginning of the week we got dropped by our other investigater Kyle, but that's okay because we got exploded by miracles the next couple of days.
I am so so so so incredibly glad I decided to serve a mission. Its seriously the best thing I could have done for myself. Ive been able to learn so much and grow from the experiences that I've been blessed to have.
I love you all! Hope your all as happy as I am because I'm ecstatic right now :)
Peace and Blessings! ha-ha.

P.S. A new member allowed us to hold his gecko, my new best friend, Sister Fauke was not such a fan...

Hola from Parker CO!
Life is good here in Parker Nation, good but cold :)
Transfers happened yesterday- Sis. Mall got transferred. She's still in my zone though so I'll be able to see her every so often. My new companion is Sis. Falke- she's super awesome, so I'm really excited for this transfer.
Some super exciting news- WE FINALLY TAUGHT OVER 20 LESSONS LAST WEEK. 21 lessons to be exact :) Its been a struggle this transfer on that aspect.
The first four months we taught an average of 12 lessons (the other sisters were teaching 8 before I got there) And then it got to 18 lessons, then 19 the week after, and now 21 :) I love being able to see so much progress here.
Unfortunately we had to drop our investigater- he moved out of our boundaries :( BUT WE GOT A NEW INVESTIGATER on Tuesday :) His name is Kyle. Total hippie- but that's alright!
Great things are happening here in Parker.
Sorry this is going to be super short- I feel like my brain is on lock down and I cant remember anything that's happened this past week.
Know that I love you all soooo much :) Have a fantastic week!
