Missionary work is going well; it's really starting to pick up. We have three investigators, Anna Evans who is a character, Claudia who I told you about last week and we are still trying to see, and Ozzie, a referral the Elders originally gave us, and he is on date to be baptized.
My favorite part about last week was, lol, well it really wasn't such a good week thanks to my tire going flat all the time. One good thing for last week is I made my birthday cake and my companion sprayed me with silly string. The zone leaders, along with the elders that live with them, helped eat my birthday cake. Thank you to everyone who sent me a birthday card, I really enjoyed receiving them!
My least favorite part about last week, besides by tire going flat, was riding in the rain. It was cold, but I'm starting to get used to it. I'm not using the coat, just using my sweaters instead.
Guess what? They had me and my companion and our district leader do a survey on mini missions. Apparently I have been talked about a lot and it's peaked some peoples interest. I should be getting a call today from President Toone to find out what's going to happen. He kind of thinks that Thursday night after Thanksgiving is when I will leave. Anyways, I hope to see everyone soon.

My favorite part of last week was helping one of the relief society sister, Sister Holmes, make Christmas cards. Glitter was everywhere! Lol
Yes, I had more bike adventures this week. I almost flew off my bike yesterday. It's a long story and needless to say, I caught myself and didn't fall. I swear someone is watching over me.
Well, today is prep day, so we will do the usual shopping, laundry and writing letters. We may make my cake today, not sure yet. We may or may not teach one of our investigators, Claudia.
You ask what my favorite part of my mission has been and the answer is All Of It!
Hope everyone has a great week!
P.S. Thanks for the chocolate; I have eaten all of it!

We had interviews with Pres. Toone, first as a companionship and then separately for a minute. He said he should be talking with the missionary department soon and they will notify him to let him know if and when papers will be arriving.
We are going further south in Yuma today for a zone activity which usually means volleyball or basketball.
We are still riding bikes and we usually sing now, but to answer your question, no, no car. (Wishful thinking. LOL)
This past week has been great! First, receiving all the letters from everyone, they make my day! Then, we got two referrals yesterday and we taught a family on Friday. The ward is super nice and always willing to come with us for lessons. I have learned so much out here, more that I did in my last area. I actually don't want to go home yet, even though I miss you guys like crazy.
It's weird to think I will be turning "20" this Sunday.
Hope everyone has a great week and Brianna I hope you have an awesome day on your birthday!
Love Sister Donner

My district is great and really fun. My favorite part of last week was Friday and Sunday. Friday was a planning day, so we met together to plan and then we had language class. We had lunch in-between and we just pushed all the tables together, it was nice. Sunday we had dinner at a member's house and after dinner they played a game of trying to guess our first names. It was really funny and they actually guessed my name. That evening we taught a less active member about the restoration. (We usually eat dinner at a members house most nights, but some nights we don't.)
I actually don't get an iPad because I am a mini missionary. (Sad Face) At first I was bummed, but then I decided I'll just buy one when I complete my whole mission.
I haven't gotten any letters, and I'm pretty sure the address is correct. (Side note: Called mission home and the zip code was incorrect, so the mailing address should be correct now)
We are teaching a person today, but not sure on the baptism, it depends on what happens tonight.
I actually have 3 new scars. One word, bike. It absolutely hates me, especially when we do down the huge hill by our apartment each day.
Gotta go now...
