Another Week at the Beach
As I'm winding up my mission, in some ways time seems to be slowing down. Like I know that I'm going to wake up in a little bit and be a regular person and be like wo. But, for now it's like I'm enjoying the days and it doesn't seem like it's going to end. It's all weird feelings. Yick.
Earlier this week we made our way back to my old stomping grounds of Niceville for an appointment. It's kind of strange to be in old areas, but Niceville is pretty plain, just like most of the little military towns around here, so it didn't stir quite the reaction as say being in DeFuniak or Brewton might have.
We had an awesome moment with our investigator, Virginia, as she and her sister both accepted to take the full lessons. We've been hoping and praying to get more teaching going with them and now it's happening. Plus she is planning on feeding us a buffet of Asian food when we come to teach the Restoration.
Ernestine and Ramon are doing good. Ramon sure loves his calling to stand by the door during the Sacrament. And he still loves his white shirt and tie.
We had dinner with stake president on Thursday night, scary! Yep, just the three of us and him and his wife. They are empty-nesters with one daughter serving a mission, so having dinner with them is what I imagine missionary dinners at my house to go like.
"Our daughter is almost home from her mission!!"
"We just sent her a Valentine's package!"
"She had this one companion from Costa Rica that was her soulmate!"
That's just what I imagine. Maybe more so at Grandma's house than at home in my case.
When we went out to Navarre Island yesterday to visit Sister Thomas, the wind was CRAZY!! People were pulling over on Navarre Beach Causeway (not smart...) to take pictures with the crashing waves and the wind whipping in their hair. We walked on the beach to our appointment and the wind blew off the top sand, unearthing lots of pretty seashells. We are going out there today also. :) Maybe the wind will have blown in some full sand dollars.
