The Latest from Aruba

Bonnnnnn Tardiiiiiii!!!!!!!
Great week! Nothing too exciting or out of the ordinary, but a great week nonetheless!! On Friday we had exchanges so I was with another companion, Sister Pacheco, for 24 hours! It was such a fun experience! We had a lesson with this really awesome young woman (maybe around 24?) and her brother and his wife! It was a really cool experience just because they were all being SO prepared! It was a nice reminder that the Lord is always preparing people and we just have to find them! People are just searching and searching for this message so that is why it is so important to just keep looking so that you can find those people! As the scriptures say, the elect people! 
If you ever have the opportunity to serve a mission in your life time, please do it! I know it is sooo hard leaving, trust me, but I also know that if you turn to the Lord he will bless you more than you could ever even imagine! Please serve if you have the chance! So many people are searching for this message so it is our responsibility to help them find it! 
Other than that we had a district activity this morning and that was really fun! We hiked Hooiberg and it is just like a million stairs but it was super fun! 
We had a little testimony meeting at the top and it was just overall an incredible experience! My district is awesome! They all love serving the Lord so much and they are all really obedient and amazing. 
I also absolutely LOVE the senior couple on this island! They are office missionaries but we get to see them pretty often so it is so fun. i. love. them. The Steckers! Since they are office missionaries and there are no other senior couples on this island, sister Petersen and i are responsible for taking care off all of the things a normal senior couple would take care of. We take the bikes in to the shop about 3 times a week hahaha! We also pay rent and all that fun stuff! We are often super busy with things like that so it is sometimes a little tricky fitting in regular full time missionary stuff, but we make it work and Heavenly Father blesses us a ton! 
It was a pretty low key week but I hope you all have a fantastic week and I love and miss each and every one of you so much!
