BED BUGS SUCK!!! (Original Date February 3, 2014)

Literally. Cause they suck your blood. Gettit? Haha? DID YOU KNOW THEY CAN LIVE FOR 18MONTHS WITHOUT FEEDING? That's like my whole mission. Gross.

I'm sorry in advance I really don't have much to say this week... the majority of our time was spent taking care of our little bug problem.
Bed bugs are the worst. Seriously. I won't bore you with the extermination process, but it was awful and time consuming. :(
Sister Johnson and Sister Clark "Debedbugging" the Apartment
At least our apartment is deep cleaned now, though, right? You're welcome, new missionary.
Poor sister Johnson, her last full week was filled with all that nonsense. But we got her things all cleaned up so she won't take any home with her. :)

Speaking of my new missionary, I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to try to convince her that the tornado siren alarm that tests every Saturday at 12 is a real tornado.

Just kidding. But it would be kinda funny.

But tornadoes scare me to death nowadays, so maybe not. :D

I'm so excited though. I feel like I'm going to learn so, SO much from this experience. I just love her already, honestly. I hope I can help her adjust - it's probably the biggest trial to get past when you come out on a mission. I'm so excited for her - this area is a great place to start. The ward is just going to bring her right in and love her, I just know it.

Sister Johnson is definitely a trunkymctrunkmeister. She goes back and forth a lot - sometimes she just wants to go home, and sometimes she never wants to go home! I can see it. We've had fun, though. We're making memories. :) I love her so much! She's been such a great example to me of humility and diligence. I'm grateful that on the days I feel discouraged, she still says, "Let's go to work." She's helped me prepare a lot to be a trainer.

I'm sorry this update is so lame! We didn't even have church this week because it was cancelled because we had a WHOLE INCH OF SNOW, guys. We can't POSSIBLY drive in that sort of crazy weather! (Oh man it's ridiculous, hahaha)

I rediscovered a powerful scripture in D&C this week: Section 29 vs 4 says: "Verily, I say unto you that ye are chosen out of the world to declare my gospel with the sound of rejoicing, as with the voice of a trump."
We have ALL been set apart at baptism to share the gospel with all the world. You are literally set apart from the world, asked to live a higher standard of living in return for bounteous blessings. 
Christ follows with this promise in vs 5: "Lift up your hearts, and be glad, for I AM IN YOUR MIDST, and am your advocate with the Father; and it is His good will to give you the kingdom."
We aren't alone in His work! God wants us to be happy - that's why He's asked us to be a part of it.

I love you all to pieces. Be excited - I'll have lots of adventures and miracles to share next week. :)

Love, Sister Clark
