What a week! It was pretty good. I´ll just start with what is on my mind: Remember Anderson, the person that was baptized last week but never came to church, well...... HE CAME THIS WEEK!!!!!!! And he was confirmed, so yes, He received the gift of the Holy Ghost! Woooohooooooo!!!!!! Oh I´m so happy! It was such a good experience too- he was confirmed at the front of the chapel, and when he came back down and sat next to us, he said that he got goosebumps. What a tender mercy! I´m so glad to be involved with this work, even though it is really hard sometimes. 
Also, Saturday night we had a church activity that us missionaries were in charge of. We did the Iron Rod activity where everyone is blindfolded and they have to hold onto a rope. Meanwhile, they have the Holy Ghost at their side helping them, and occasionaly the Devil will come and try to persuade them to let go. I thought it went really well. However, I guess it was poorly announced because only like 20 people were there. And these people were the people that had choir Right before the activity. 
Speaking of choir- it´s reallllllly interesting and slightly humorous. The missionaries were asked to participate in choir because if we´re not there, the women are shy about singing. The problem is I literally think that being tone-deaf is genetic here, especially for males. like half of the men in the choir are tone-deaf. However, at least they know how to pronounce the words correctly... haha
Other than that, this week was pretty normal. Which is good. I can echo Elder Eliason´s words about the weather, especially since he´s only like 400 miles south of me. So yeah, it was HOTTTTTT then massive storm, then HOT!!!  

Random story- This week we were teaching a lesson, and this woman´s pet chicken wandered in, started pecking at some bugs on the ground, then fell asleep. I realized that the weird thing is that this was totally normal- it wasn´t weird at all. hahahaha! 

Thank you so much for all your love and prayers! Share the gospel this week!!!! It´s so important. People´s salvation is on the line! Just think about it- you can change someone´s SALVATION! 

Com amor,
Sister Eliason

p.p.s. CONGRATULATIONS SISTER CHLOE ANDERSON ON YOUR MISSION CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
