After that we went to a member's home for dinner and somehow the fact that I can sing and play the piano came out. So they had me play the piano. I played Jessica's theme. It went alright. Then they had me sing a song. The little girls at the house wanted me to sing Think of Me from Phantom of the Opera, so I tried that (their dad accompanied). I was really praying that I would sound ok, and I did! It wasn't spectacular by any means, but it was really fun to sing.
We potentially have a new investigator with a baptismal date!! She is from another ward, but she is moving into our area and she wants to still meet with the missionaries! I don't know her name, but that was still really cool!
The work here is about the same, still working with the less active members. We have been doing A LOT of service, which is really nice. We now go to a rest home every Saturday, and we help clean a lady's house who can't do it for herself every Wednesday. She kind of reminds me of Grandma Haws. I miss her a ton, but when I am working hard, then I feel her the strongest. We get to go to the temple on October 9, so that is really exciting! I can't wait to see what the Newport Beach temple looks like!!!
Katie Daugherty sent me a letter and wanted me to give a shout out in my email. So here it is!! Tell her Thank you for the letter and how much I love and miss her! Tell everyone else to continue to send me letters. I only get to look at emails once a week, but I can receive mail anytime in the week my leaders bring it to us!!
The scripture for this week is Alma 36:3. Apply your own name to the scripture and see it change the meaning.
I love you all and miss you tons!! Keep Calm and Carry On!!!
(An explanation of Lala by Kayla's mom: When Kayla was little and her dad would be leaving to go to work, he would say, "Bye! Love ya!" Kayla couldn't say love ya, so she would say, "Bye! Lala!" And it stuck. We still say use that phrase in our family.)
