Missionary Life in Cortez

Well everyone, Here we are with another week gone by. While I'm thinking about it, don't be expecting an e-mail next Monday because we'll be in Albuquerque for the mission temple day (and I'll be there this Wednesday too to go through the Temple with one of Sister Shade's converts). I believe we'll e-mail on Tuesday, but if not that's why.

Monday: It was a really pretty day, much better than the previous two Mondays when the wind was so strong we could hardly stand up. It did get a little windy in the afternoon, but nothing in comparison. We had Bishop and Sister Decker come with us to a lesson with a new family we're teaching, which was great because they were able to know someone when they went to church yesterday.

Tuesday: We contacted some referrals we'd received from the members. I love how involved in the missionary work the members are here. We had some good lessons and knocked some doors. Basically, it was a normal missionary day.

Wednesday: It was rainy and kinda gloomy outside and were both kinda down in the dumps for unexplainable reasons. Then we got some wonderful news! We found out that we had a ride to go to Albuquerque this week to go through the temple with Sister Gloria Perez, who was baptized 13 months ago in Bernalillo. Sister Shade and Sister Trunnell were together when she was baptized. Sister Trunnell is flying down, and we'll be there too. Oh what a tender mercy this was to find out that we'd be able to go to the temple.

Thursday: We woke up to snow. And not just a little skiff, though less than last Tuesday when we had to drive to Durango. It was a little chilly all day long. But we did have some good lessons, which is always nice.

Friday: We had our weekly planning session, and once again were amazed at how fast the time is flying. Here we are now in week 5 of the transfer! Incredible. While we were eating lunch, we looked out our kitchen window (and only exterior window in the apartment) to see 5 or 6 deer grazing in the clearing below the window. We sat there in awe watching the deer. I love Colorado!

Saturday: It was really quite hot, which felt nice after a cold morning. We had to have a couple lessons outside and did lots of walking and finally got some color back on our arms that we had 2 months ago down in Rio Rancho but quickly faded away after we got up here and had to start wearing our coats and sweaters again. It's probably time to break out the sunscreen.

Sunday: We had a good day at church. It was a good meeting, and we had the new family we're teaching there. And the weather was beautiful! We think that Spring is finally here.

Wow. This is really short this week, but really I don't have anything else to say. It was just a normal week without anything too exciting going on. We're keeping busy working and whatnot. Sorry if you were hoping for something a little more exciting. But the e-mail you'll get next week will have more in it, I promise. Have a fabulous week!

Love, Hermana Good
