Thur. June 20: After studies, we drove up our neighborhood hill to find out about what looked like a SERIOUS fire that was there. Turns out, a happy family was just burning tons of trash. They, in return, gave us mangos (freakishly shook a tree to get the mangos down haha!) and let us see their new pitbull puppies. haha We then gave them some information about the gospel and left. :) We taught the gospel of Jesus Christ to “L”, and also taught her granddaughter, also named “L!” It was a great visit! We then met with “AR” about the Word of Wisdom, and then with Marta. We talked about charity. :)
Fri. June 21: After studies, we met with “H” and her mom. We had a crazy turkey stalk us during the lesson. (The turkey gobbled when I gobbled. Yup - ! I'm a professional gobbler.)
|This is the stalking turkey. Gobble!|
Sat. June 22: We RACED over to Marta's house, cause her elderly mom had to go to the Intensive Care center. Marta was feeling extremely sad and called us to come over there immediately. We comforted her and shared some scriptures and our testimonies of encouragement and about the gospel. :) We then drove to Anasco for some contacting. We ate pasta at a member's house. We then raced over to the chapel in Mayaguez for our Stake Talent Show.

Mon. June 24: Got up at 4:30am. Drove through RAIN, FLOODS, and WIND to get to a chapel in a nearby city. ALL us missionaries had our studies, and then everyone carpooled up to Old San Juan! For the majority of the morning, we got to look around the El Morro!!! The most famous site in Puerto Rico!!

Tues. June 25: We had our normal studies and weekly planning. We then had lunch and now we're emailing at the University. :) Life is good, life is about to change AGAIN (with the change in mission president), and I certainly am hoping I can change well with the change. :) I hope all is well with you! I love you all, and keep you in my prayers! Till next week! Love, Sister Bean

|Second generation of missionaries! |
Our mothers both served in France Paris.
I got a picture with Hermana Page! Her mother, Soeur Lund, and my mother, Soeur Kirkwood, were
sister missionaries in the France Paris mission!!
They were junior companions to Soeur Wright (our good friend Anne Wright Adams) - my mom when she was in Orleans with Soeur Wright, and Hna Page's mom when she was in Bordeaux with Soeur Wright! How COOL is that?!?! :)
