Monday we picked up Tigi for our regular outing and decided to take her to one of my favorite places for lunch "5 Guys", which became one of her favorites too. We then took her to the SS office to clear up some paper work, it seems there is so much to do to catch her up on all her medical and paperwork.. but we love helping her..
Tuesday we had our last outing as a district with Sister Brown (my old companion) and Sister Larsen and Elder and Sister Knight.. We all met at the Green Turtle in
and had a wonderful time.. The food was great and the conversation was
fun. The Knights are from Bowie and he used to be professor at
BYU. He has also been a tour guide for
many church history tours, so he is really fun to talk to. After lunch we headed out to try and catch
some sisters home and have visits.. We made 3 attempts and had 2 visits, great
L-R Sister Brown, Sister Knight, Me, Sister Wege, Elder Knight, Sister Larsen
Thursday morning we attended a zone training with the young missionaries.. they had asked us to come so they could say goodbye to me.. They are all so neat and it will be hard to say my final goodbyes to them. I assured them I would see them at a couple of the events at the visitors center that are coming up..
We then picked up
and went to visit Barbara our favorite Thursday lady. We took birthday treats
and cards to celebrate her birthday with her. We then made a couple more
visits.. One which was very strange.
Mary is very paranoid and suffers from schizophrenia and is sure that
the government is trying to spy on her, so she has all her windows covered in
tin foil and curtains over every window and doorway.. It is really dark in her
house so she guided us to places to sit.. She asked us all to hold hands and to
feel of each others spirit while we were there (can I just say . . .YIKES)
Siste Wege was giggling the whole time. At one point she asked me to go over by
her bed and get a bag hanging on the wall.. When I gave it to her, she pulled
out some musical instruments.. bells and shaker balls and then asked me to go
get the gong and mallet also hanging on the other wall.. Well. . . then she
said we were all going to play our musical instruments while we were singing.. we thought Sharon
was going to faint.. so we sang I am a child of God and I played the gong and
the others had their musical instruments.. Sister Wege couldn't stop giggling..
Mary has a cockatiel named Ashley that danced and bounced it's head as Mary
sang.. Ashley poo-pooed .. we were all just in shell shock at this point.. We
asked if she would like to say a prayer before we left and she readily agreed
and we were out of there. Sharon
Sister Wege spent some time this past weekend with her daughter Jenny and Jenny's boyfriend who were in town for the weekend from
The birthday dinner on Friday evening,,
Some of my friends and Me on Saturday..
