So this week was such a funny week! But I kinda forgot some things so just keep reading this letter is going to be interesting!
So Tuesday I was on exchanged with Sister Opeti! She's cute! She's Tongan from Oakland California. It was weird when people asked us where we were from we both said California. She's being trained so it was weird doing 12 week. Also it's weird that I haven't been in Layton for 3 months. Like I'm almost at my 9 month. It's kinda scary. I just remember when Kaitlin and Paige were out 9 month we were all what the heck and now probs y'all are like what the heck with me.
Then Wednesday we went to a zone training. It was good! But after we went on MORE exchanges. This STL stuff is tough. But this exchange was with sister swain! We went to her area this time! We went to the Syracuse farm museum and I milked a fake cow. It squirted me with its cow juice. Aka water. And we didn't have dinner so we went to Little Caesars and got bread sticks and went to this Meg Johnson thing. She's famous because she fell off a Cliff in st. George and is not paralyzed. I came to the conclusion that if you want people to listen to you stop being able to use the majority of your body. Because she was alright I guess but no one would want her to talk to them if she had full use of her body.
Thursday we went on a little bike ride. I decided I don't like bikes they hurt my bum. So we went to visit people and than had lunch and went to fiz and I didn't get anything because I gave up soda on my mission but I really wanted a Dirty Diet Coke but I didn't fall into temptation. So mom the moment I get off that plane I want a DDC in my hand. 😘 then we exchanged back, then we went to dinner at the Walkers!
I've talked about them before he's out WML and served in our ward! He said he called his old companion and asked if he knew any O'Connors from Moreno Valley and he said "yes they had the cutest baby girl" and guess what he served there in 1996 so that baby was me 💁🏼 but they have such cute girls! They have a big flaw though. They don't know who the Jonas brothers are. I about died. I really didn't think that day would come! The rest of the week we ate in that street with all their girls friends and non of them knew who the Jonas brothers were. I
seriously almost died. They now think I'm really old. We also taught Juan this week and we taught him about the priesthood and had the APs come because ya know I don't really hold the priesthood. So we were talking about it and Elder Armstrong said something like only the men hold the priesthood and Juan turns to look at me and sister Richins and raises his eyebrow and it was so funny! He was like well that's junk kind of a look! But Elder Gardner had this really cool analogy I'll tell you now "so let's say it's raining and you're walking down the street with a girl (this is to Juan) are you going to hold the umbrella or will she" obviously he would "so that's like the priesthood the man holds it but it covers both of them." I liked that!
Then Saturday was stake baptisms! We like to go because people feel the spirit and give us referrals and seeing the innocence in baptism is so great! So one of the baptisms was Spencer Sadler! His mom is the young woman's president and we would go over and teach the lessons to the kids because idk why they did it when I got here but we are done now. But so I really like their family! They are all really tall because the dad is like 6'5 and the mom is like 6'0 so the kids are totes into basketball and when Spencer was baptized without missing a beat one of his cousins goes "dunk, slam dunk" and everyone died! I loved it!
Sunday was the day I got proposed to! I know I made y'all wait for this moment! So we sit in sacrament meeting and this special needs boy sits next to me. He first asked me if I had any children and I told him no. Then he asked the man behind us if he was a sea horse! He proceeded to tell him if he was a seahorse he would be pregnant. Then he said his name was Jason I said that's my uncles name! He chatted and than leaned to his mom and said "is it to early to ask a girl you just met to marry you?" She said yes than he came to me and said "will you marry me?" I told him I can't marry anyone while I'm on a mission and he said "oh ok" and then colored and told me some jokes. It was very wonderful but I gave my heart to the Lord!
Well everyone I love you all! Have a great week!
Love Sister O'Connor
