When someone hands you The Quran and tells you to read it

Happy Fourth of July everyone! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Highlights of the week are :

We ate dinner with Hannah and Spencer Vance on Tuesday and they are
the cutest young couple who just got married and are both return

On Wednesday it was a members birthday so we went to Walmart and got
her a chicken clock because she loves chickens!
We met a guy named Steve who asked a lot of questions about our religion.
Also on Wednesday it was a million degrees. We had a pit stop at
Burger King and guess what! They have lucky charms and fruit loop
shakes!! I got the lucky charms one and it was pretty good!

We had a lesson with Ian on Thursday and he brought his friend Gwen
with him. He had a lot of questions about the after life and he was
confused about how we don't believe in hell and I brought up outer
darkness and he said that makes more sense.
We ate dinner with the Richards. They just had a baby! Their son
Zabien was eating a popsicle and he said "it's like eating a cucumber
with ice on it" um okay πŸ˜‚
It was Sister Summers moms birthday the next day so we all sang happy
birthday and they sent her the video :)

On Saturday, all of a sudden it just started pouring rain and
thundering and lightning and it was so scary!!

Sunday we had correlation with Brother Cassel before church.
We finally met Glen. He was a referral we got.
We met Hawk from Bangladesh and he talked and talked about the Quran
and gave us both the book πŸ˜‚ he said that any and every question that
you have, the answer is in the book. We aren't allowed to read it so
I'm sending it home πŸ˜‚

Monday we had District Meeting and we "killed" our District Leader,
Elder Cortes. It was also my 17 month mark. What.
We had dinner and FHE at the Ackermans and we played pie face πŸ˜‚ my
family is playing that when I get home!!

Today we helped with a 5K. No, I did not run it. We helped with the
tshirts haha. I got a free tshirt 😊 we got to see the Delaware river
and the bridge that separates our mission and the New Jersey mission!
Tonight we are having dinner with the Skinfills and get to stay their
