Ice Cream Fridays are a Myth!

Soooooo Sundays and Wednesdays they have ice-cream but its usually not super amazing! #disappointed
I’ve been using hashtags all week....I don't know why!

I used a hashtag in class with a Mongolian word....I think it was baby but I can't remember (haungormin=baby) my teacher thought it was pretty funny and no one knew what I said so it was a pretty funny/awkward moment! #ooonin (#true)

So I’m not really good at typing, I should have listened to you dad and taken a typing class! And I can't really remember what all happened this week, the days are long and the weeks are fast......or something like that.
ALLLLLLLLLLL week I have had this song, based on the other side of heaven stuck in my head, "hurrah for Israel" really I have just been singing HUUUUURRRAHHHHH, HUUUURAAAHHH.......... I was singing in the bathroom and this super awkward person was there and didn’t say anything the whole time (awkward skyping poop call?) and I was like singing at the top of my lungs the whole time! #winning

My one teacher Brother Boyd won an International English teaching award, so that's pretty cool! He also married a girl from Gilbert, she graduated a year before me...I don't remember her name. Our other teacher just got home, Lauren Pace should marry him, he plays lacrosse at BYU. I can't tell if he's a zoob, because I only see him in Sunday clothes.
This week was actually pretty stressful/hard! Kind of for everyone. It was weird everyone seemed to be struggling and then yesterday afternoon everything switched, I don't know.... I think that it is just hard not being able to speak the language like we want to. We got another investigator and I don't even know how this will work.
But I know that the Lord will help me as I continue to give all my effort and pray like crazy! I'll be able to speak and understand in His time, not mine. I think that that is one of the coolest things here. We are on the Lord's time. we run, run, run all day trying to get everything that we need to do done and sometimes we still aren't doing enough. Elder Bednar said, "it will avail you nothing to be going about doing more and more...........unless what you are doing is BETTER good things" or something like that I can't remember. So that's what I have been trying to do this week! I want so bad to be better, so that the Spirit can work better through me. I love it here. Sometimes it is hard...but only for a little bit because He is watching over His missionaries. I have felt that! I know He loves me and each of you! I hope everyone is doing swell! loves loves loves!!!!
