Paralympic's πŸ…, Obama πŸ‘΄πŸΎπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, and red velvet cake πŸŽ‚= good week! - November 7, 2016

Hello family,
So let's just cut to the point.. the dreaded month has finally come. I can't believe I will be home in 3 weeks! That is still a crazy thought to me. I've been pretending and telling myself that I am not stressed but reality hit on Sunday morning when I woke up with 3 cold sores.. yeah, I guess you could say I'm a little stressed. But I'm so excited to come home and see y'all!! It's going to be the best thing ever! Speaking of coming home, I got my flight plans on Wednesday.. that was a sad letter to get. Every letter I've gotten in the mail is from the mission office and they all start with congratulations for faithfully serving your mission. It is now complete.. I want to send back and say, uh.. wait. I still got like 3 weeks before it is complete! But can you believe November 29th at like 2:30 I'll be back in Utah! Watch out L-town Sister Webb will be back and ready to party! 

So I had a super good email all typed up but some how it got deleted before I could send it so this one isn't going to be as good but I will try to make it amusing. So Monday was Halloween. We were suppose to be in by 7 so we could role play for the rest of the night but Sister Anderson and I decided to be rebels and we went to get Panda Express and didn't get home til around 8.. then we decided to skip role plays all together and party by dying my hair. I dyed it reddish brown with some violet in it as well. Y'all will just have to see it when I get home. 

Tuesday we had the coolest thing happen! So, because we are poor YSA sisters we have been living off of my gift cards for meals so we don't run out of money. Tuesday night we decided that we would eat at chick-fil-a. So we get there and we ran into a member who is in the Hendricks Ward. He is on the USA Paralympic team! He just got back from Rio not too long ago! Cool right!? So we are eating and then he pulls out his silver metal and let's us hold it! It was the highlight of our day!! 

We had an awesome lesson with our investigator named Kimmy on campus on Wednesday. We were able to read the introduction to the Book of Mormon with her and she is so excited to keep learning more! I'm also getting more and more comfortable talking to people my own age on campus! Unless they are attractive and have muscles.. that's another story.. haha 

Oh my, Thursday was a crazy but good day! So we decided that we really want to find people so we had planned for a really long day at campus. Well as we are driving to the university we notice cop cars at every freeway entrance and exit. Nothing in Jacksonville surprises me anymore. So Sister Anderson and I decide that either something really sketchy and scary is going on or someone super famous is here. We get to campus to find like 10 more cop cars there and the place is hoppin' with people! It turns out President Obama was at UNF! He ruined our whole day though because then we couldn't park and get to campus. So we spent the day finding things to do. 

Later that night we had dinner with a member and he invited a friend named Catie for us to meet. It was awesome!! We taught her the restoration and she loved it and wanted a copy of the Book of Mormon. After that we got her to come to institute and she loved that as well!! It was awesome!!! 

Saturday we had another adventure doing service at the dog park with the elders. It was fun! We went to these woods there and they gave us a machete and told us to go cut some trees and get things off of the walking trail! Ok, giving 4 young single adults a machete and tell us to go chop things is the worst idea ever! We basically went running through the forest slashing everything we could! Haha but hey, we accomplished what they asked us to! 

Sunday was probably the best day of the week! So we had invited Catie to church and she said she had to work so then we invited her to come to the Mandarin 2nd Ward cause it started at 9. Guess what? She came!!! Yay!! After sacrament meeting we had a lesson with her and invited her to baptism and set a date for November 26!!!! Wait, this isn't even the best part of this story! So she tells us that she ended up not having to work until 1:00 so she was then able to come to Sacrament meeting at the YSA branch as well. Before it started she pulls out her phone and gets to the calendar and puts on the 26th my baptism!! Aww, it was the best thing ever! It made me so stinkin happy! She is going to be baptized!!! It will be a transfer miracle!! So every prayer y'all say pray that Catie will be able to be baptized on the 26th of this month! 

Hope y'all have a good week!!

Sister Webb
