Week Full of Flat Tires

So, first, I will explain the heading of my email.  This week on Monday,  we had our jeep tell us that there was low tire pressure, then, we filled it up with some air.  At the end of the night, it went on again, so we had to take it into the shop on Tuesday and bike the rest of the day.  At least they replaced the other tires as well so it wouldn't happen again. 
Then, when I was on an exchange with Sister Pinto, we were biking during the two hours we have in the morning to find less actives, and on the way back home, both of her bike tires popped.  Instead of saying how bad it was, the first thing she did was laugh hahaha.  She is awesome.  After that, we called the other sisters because they were using their car to come pick us up.  Right after we put the bikes on their car, we heard a weird sound as we were driving.  When we pulled over to discover what it was, turns out one of the tires on their car was flat.  All four of us sisters didn't really know how to change a tire, so we called the elders--Elder Nelson and Elder Galloso. 
During this time, Sister Pinto told me it was probably for a reason, so during this time we knocked several doors on the street.  None of them, unfortunately, were very nice, but at least we tried!
This week, we had two investigators at church and five less actives at church! One is named Alex, and he is a friend of a young woman in the ward.  She told him we should go by and talk to him, so we did, and then he came!! He was even sticking up for us because when we were talking to him, one of his friends cussed, and he turned and said, "Hey, respect!"  Also, when he came to church, he even volunteered to pray after Sunday School and Elder Quorum! Crazy prepared! Also, this little girl named Anna is getting baptized on Sunday.  We thought for sure this other lady was going to come to church yesterday, but she didn't.

Here is the story about her. So we talked to her one day this week, and invited her to church, but she said that she didn't want to come to church because she has her church to go to in the morning.  When we came back and shared the Restoration, she felt the Spirit so strong that she was like when can I come to church?? Then we went by Sunday morning, and she made the same excuse again.  That was disappointing..but there are other cool people so it's alright.  

Also, I got to go on an exchange with Sister Valdez, and she taught me a lot of things like how to be a better teacher.  That was awesome.  

This week, we have zone conference AND women's general broadcast!! It's like Christmas! LOL!  It's weird what missionaries get excited for...

Also a cool thing that I learned from Preach my Gospel was that essentially charity=missionary work.  Some of the sisters that I am over are struggling a lot, but when we are intelligent, charitable people, we will enjoy the mission that much more.  A quote that Sister Barton has up on the wall is "How much you enjoy your mission is how converted you are to the gospel."

Also, remember that rat in Sinton?? Yeah, they finally killed him this week. He filled up one of those giant glue traps! Wow!
