There is a mermaid in lake Titicaca
Week 64September 1, 2014
Well let's start out with the beginning of the week. So we go visit this hermana whose cousin is a member and invited her to church (a different ward actually, but she lives in our boundaries). The lesson was going normal and good until she was just like, Can I tell you something? And of course we said yes. She said you're not going to judge me right? No. And she proceeded to tell us this thing that she had kept up inside of her and hadn't told her friends or her family. How is it that people trust us enough to tell us such things 20 minutes after meeting us for the first time? It really is amazing to me. Being a missionary is an incredible calling. She said her cousin invited her to church and she said she would go, but only once and then never again, haha. And he told her she didn't have to come in a skirt if she didn't want to. But she went and felt so good that she went and bought skirts for, and the S after that, and the one after that! She bought three skirts, guys!
And about the subject. Wellll, obviously.....there's a....mermaid...in the lake (say this with Antoine Dodsen accent). The Bishop's wife Gina told us a wonderful story about how a man was always going to the lake to talk with a beautiful mermaid until one day he went missing. Story goes that she took him. She also told us other really great stories about all kinds of wonderful mythical creatures that live here in our very own backyard. Who woulda thought?!
Anyways, love you guys! Have a great week!
