Wednesday Email

On Wednesdays, Sara can send us an email. Here is what she said today

So last week I completely forgot to send the letters i wrote. tell mom sheri dew spoke on mothers day here. then this past sunday sister cook (yw gen presidency) and sister dibb (also yw presidency... thomas s monsons daughter) spoke in relief society. It was so amazing. I had had a question I'd been praying a lot about and she totally answered it. My testimony is growing a lot. I was called as coordinating sister for my zone this week, but I'm still not entirely sure what I'll be doing. It will be a good opportunity to grow and learn and stuff.

The language is coming along well, but I am going to have to step it up. Usually if any time during the day gets encroached upon its language study. The older district going to HK is leaving next monday, and I'm really sad to see them go but am really excited for them at the same time. This week another district or two in my zone left, and now theyre leaving, so in two sundays from now it will only be my district in sacrament meeting. and no one plays the piano except for me but NOT good, so I'm also taking some of my MDT time to learn a few hymns. Thank goodness there is a sacrament hymn in C major. Thats all I'm saying. I know I can do it but it's really hard and frustrating because as you all know i am not exactly the best at practicing. There are only 6 in my district so. . . yeah.

A few days ago our sister teacher asked me to "look it up," a common phrase that she uses when we need to find a word on our own rather than relying on her. The word was "willing" I looked it up and read it. We only use 6 tones instead of 7, but in the dictionary there are still 7 tones. High falling is the one we don't use. well.. the word had 2 high falling parts, and I thought they were low falling. Apparently I said willing wrong, and said a bad word. Our teacher is very serious, very Chinese and direct, but she couldn't help but bust up laughing at me because of what I had just said. We asked if stuff like that happens a lot in class. We learned that we have all sworn a bunch of times already. whoops.

I am learning a lot about the scriptures and about my Savior. My favorite part of the day is personal study and gym. I am pretty much dominating at 4 square. I need to be careful though because sometimes I get too competitive.

Love you!
