Hello everyone, and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for everything that all of you do!! "For God so loved the world that He gave us Mothers!"
It might be a little bit harder to write some things...it's almost like I just talked with the family yesterday! Btw, it was absolutely amazing!! It was a little bit of a struggle with everyone looking so much older, just the sisters I mean!
The biggest parts of the week have been saying goodbyes to Elder Budica and getting ready for Elder Womack.
Highlights up to transfer day:
-Had a wicked awesome Hispanic-style shredded Elk tacos
-Ate my first fried oreo...then made some bomb Shmoreos!
-Found out some pretty awesome and fascinating family relatives from Family Search! (pretty awesome and hilarious!! You need to check it out!! It's on something like "Relative search" or something)
-Had an awesome lesson with an awesome sister we've been teaching...then lost contact for a while until now
-Worked out in the orchards laying down irrigation hosing
-Eating at some of the hotspots of Chelan, all the way from Hispanic, to fine dining. (the good side of saying goodbye to a comp-anion is that the ward wants to do the same, in the form of taking him out to eat...and as his companion...TAGALONGS!!!)
-Got one of the coolest missionaries here in the mission!!
The transfer so far has been really amazing! Elder Womack is such a good missionary! It's been a lot of fun to serve with him. Lot's of amazing things are going to happen in this area really soon! So far, we've had some really cool things. Looking forward with faith and working my heart out!!
I love you all so much! Miss you...but having the time of my life out here!! :D
Take care, have fun, and keep moving forward with Faith in Christ!

Everything is going fantastic here in the WKM. Just got done fishing a little more...getting a lot hotter around here. Near the lake, that just means more bugs!
We've pretty busy with the work around here. We've been finding new and "out of the box" ways to go out and give service to the community, so that's been a lot of fun. We got to sit and talk with the ward leaders on some of the service ideas we've been thinking of, they had a really good laugh on some...most of them! ...not like we thought all of them up while we were walking in the sun ALL day.... I love this ward so much!! So many amazing people! Ya, so we'll be working a lot more in serving around the community, and it looks that the ward will be super excited to go all into it as well!
We've been working really hard in finding by the Spirit. There ARE people who the Lord has prepared, and our focus has been to know who they are, and where they are. We've had some really cool miracles in the past week from that. I've always said it, but there are really amazing things happening here, and as we do all that we can, the Lord has promised us that we will be prepared to find and share the Gospel with those who have been prepared. ...man, the more I think of it, the Lord is preparing tons of people!! Not just those that we're able to come in contact with every day, but us as well!
We're teaching some of the coolest people in the world!! I love these brethren to death! Keep Billy in your prayers. He's one of the coolest guys I know!! He's gone through so much in his life, but the Lord's had has led him so far, and he's been acting with amazing faith, committing and wanting to be baptized on the 30th of this month. Every lesson has been such a strong Spiritual experience for everything there!
I cant really hold in Transfer news any longer, so on the fun side of things.......... I'll be staying here for this upcoming transfer! Elder Budica got the really cool call though, he'll be heading to Othello to work in the Mizteco area...which is a new language. So he'll be with a native companion who dosent speak a lick of Englsih, only Spanish and Mizteco. Pretty excited for him!
I'll be getting one of the best missionaries on Earth! I served as DL in the district in Yakima with Elder Womack. We had a blast there, and he was full of greenie fire while being greenie busted. Love the Elder to death, so I'll be excited to see what will happen on Wednesday!
Everything else is going really great!! Got the opportunity to translate for the ward this last Sunday. I found that it was A LOT easier than the last time I did it in Mattawa some......long time ago. So Spanish seems to still be there! We're running into a lot more Hispanics around here, so I'm getting my fill! :D
I love all of you so much! Keep working hard and love it!!
