ok get excited for my funny story so we had a gazillion sœurs at our house (only 10) but one of the girls broke the handle off of the faucet thing where water comes out and water was just spraying everywhere!! so the only solution was to turn off our water supply because we couldn't turn off the sink. we haven't had water since friday.... lol haven't showered in 4 days because it broke before i could jump in the shower but that doesn't matter so when it was supper crazy and we were trying to figure out how to turn off the water and which one was our water supply one of the sœurs was like i know how to do this. one is hot and one is cold so when we found the water supply knob things that sœur turned off two knobs and our neighbor last night came over and asked us if we had water, we turned off his water too!!!! he hasn't had water since friday!! he waited three days to ask if we had water oh my gosh is was so funny so we turned off his water too we felt so bad! were baking him a cake to apologize and we finally bought a new faucet thing, put it in and have water now! sœur banks and i are thinking of opening our own pluming business when we get home. but mom we haven't been able to flush our toilet in like 4 days our upstairs started to smell like a port a poty seriously i have never been more grateful for running water! poor kevin.
so we read this talk this week about a missionary who did a 40 day fast where you start with a 24 hour fast and you write everything that comes to mind that takes you away from the spirit and for the next 40 days you fast from those things to help get your mind and heart and everything in line with the spirit we started that this week and have already seen so many miracles with it especially on the day we fast. having the ability to fast is such a gift even though it doesn't seem like it sometimes but it is a tool for us to be able to grow closer to the spirit and to become closer to the savior and it works!!! its amazing i have never really had a testimony of fasting before and now i do and its amazing i don't know why but i just seriously took so many things for granted back home like the scriptures and running water and fasting i am so Lucky to have this opportunity to serve!
i love you all have a good week sorry i forgot my camera so no pictures sorry
