Week #60

Hello from K4!!!
This week was fun. We had a lot of opportunities for unplanned acts of service. Ah, it was the best! What else. We did a lot of tracting. Always fun. Oh, and we got a new investigator!! So this guy's name is Evandro and he is from Brazil! What a stud. He barely speaks any English but we told him we were representatives of Jesus Christ and his face lit up. We went back with some members who speak Portuguese and we taught him through a translator. Ha it was an odd experience. But then we committed him to be baptized!! On August 26!! Which is a Tuesday? They usually happen on Saturday but... Hahahaha I think I was just so concentrated on the translator, I just really don't know what happened. But Tuesday is a great day for a baptism :) He came to church on Sunday and was so happy! he just talked about how he felt so good and so happy! Yeeeahhh! Now he wants us to teach his friends!
Ever since we found Evandro we have seen sooo many Brazilians. They are awesome! Hooray for diversity.
Anyway, that was the miracle of the week!
Thank you all soo much! Love you!
On Friday nights in Kirkland there is a farmer's market with the most aaaamazing food so Sister Nudd and I went there. And ohmygosh. Best ice cream sandwich ever. My double chin is comin in nice :)

Week #58

Heeeeeellllooooooooo  everyone! This week was glorious! Kirkland is rad. But super hot. I don't think I've ever been so sweaty and sticky in my whole entire life. It's been in the high 80's and it's going to be in the 90's this week. Aweeeesome.
So it's going to be short because we have nothing going on.... But our ward is awesome. We love them! Really we do. K4!! Hopefully we can start finding investigators to put these awesome members to use!
Well, that's it. Ha. Sorry!!! More next week. Love you all so much!

Week #57

So, here I am in the Kirkland 4th ward (aka K4). It's rad!! This ward is amazing!! So missionary minded. Everyone here is constantly trying to get referrals for us. Which we don't mind! A lot of what the sisters left us hasn't really worked out so it feels a lot like we're starting from scratch. Which I guess isn't terrible. Sister Nudd is used to the Tongan people and I'm used to downtown Seattle and so we are both sooo lost out here in Kirkland! HA! It's awesome though. We've only heard 2 sirens in the last week! Record!!
We had a ward breakfast on the 4th on the BEACH!!!! We have a beach in our area!!! It does no good to us... But it's still exciting. We've done a lot of activities with our ward already and we've been meeting members and all that good stuff so not a ton to report. YET. Good things to come here in K4.
So there is my happy missionary life in a nut shell!! OH, and our apartment is HUGE!! AND CLEAN!!! It was a senior couples but they just moved the sisters in. We live in a condo actually so Sister Nudd and I keep saying it feels like we're on vacation haha.
Thank you and love you all sooooo much! This really is the church of Jesus Christ!!!
By the way, I reeeeaaaallly hope you all have watched the video Because of Him. Amazing. If not, Do it!
