Week 13 - Kuna 09/02/13

Hello Family!

To celebrate Labor Day I am laboring.....IN KUNA! I got to stay here and Sister Nick was transfered to Emmett. She left early, early, early this morning! I am quite tired to say the least. And I have a new Companion, Sister Stephens! She has only been serving for six weeks so I’ll be finishing her training! So now I am the Senior companion, Which is a TON of responsibility. It's really awesome to know that President Cannon trusts me enough to be the leader of the Kuna area! Not many people get to train after only two transfers! Thankfully, Sister Stephens is so nice and ready to get to work, which is a good thing because we have lot of appointments already scheduled this week! 

Mud volleyball was so much fun! It was a ward party for the Kuna 5th ward, and man was it hilarious!  We told one person that we were planning on playing mud volleyball. We went to change into our non pros (no proselyting clothing) and when we got back we found all of the kids impatiently waiting for us so they could start the game. Word sure travels fast! We gained many new fans that night. Now everyone wants us over for dinner, YAY!  Everyone had such a fun time! I am so glad to be staying here in Kuna. I love the people here SO MUCH!

Another funny story, yesterday at the end of the 4th Ward Sacrament Meeting, a Sister came up to us and asked, "Which one of you is Sister Lindsay Taylor?" And of course I was really surprised because I had no idea who she was or how she knew my first name because it’s not printed on my tag. Anyway, I told her it was me and she said "I'm Sister O'Brien! You went to college with my son Jacob. He told me I had to make sure I found you and said hello!" Jacob was one of Coriannes best friends and he would come over to the apartment all of the time. Isn't that so cool? I feel like I know everyone here! 

I've enjoyed reading the hymns and the scriptures that go with each one. This past Sunday, while going through the hymnbook. I looked in the front of the book and there is a  message from the First Presidency. From the “Music in Our Personal Lives” section it reads, “We encourage you to memorize your favorite hymns and study the scriptures that relate to them." I just thought the whole preface they put in the hymnbook was really cool.  Love me some Hymns!

I love you all so much and hope you are having a good week! You are always in my prayers! 

Lindsay, aka, "Sister Taylor"

P.S. Sorry I don't have any pictures for you this week! Things just got really crazy with transfers and packing and I forgot to put my camera in my bag! So now you will have lots of pictures next week!

A special thanks to the members that sent the following photos of our muddy missionary!
