Hollllla Amiga's and amigos!
  I'm going to try my best and tell you what happen this week but
this morning seems like 2 days ago and yesterday was like 5 days ok.
That's what a missionary mind is like its super funny cause you will
start to tell someone something and your like the other day...and then
later realize what you were talking about was only last night or this
morning! It's great, let me tell ya!
  We got our iPads :) that's what I'm emailing of right's
pretty fun! Oh my goodness they have been so so so helpful! Blessings
have come from them. It has taken me a bit to warm up to them cause I
thought I would just love it at first. I love studying " preach my
gospel" and the scriptures that's when I started to warm up to it but
at the same time still marking up and using my scriptures! The meeting
in Tuesday was about a 5 hour long training on how to use them and get
them set up! President Samuelian was Soo funny, I have some pretty
funny quotes from him that day! We do all our planning in the iPads
and are trying to transfer all the area book info into them it's a
process but we are loving it more and more! The work is....hastening!
  Ok so about the weather is been so so beautiful Oregon has been
having a drought it's one of the driest seasons they have had and so
like no rain which I'm ok with but the farms need it! But the sun is
out and it has been so beautiful and sunny and the clouds have been
amazing! The sunsets are to die for!! We keep taking a billion pics
that we will probably delete half of later hahah!
  We went on exchange this week and that was quite the adventure i
wasn't feeling that great so my brain was like dnfiskfbsksodhfbnsks that exactly. It was a good day I stayed in Brownsville
and siesta Chappell went to Salem ysa! Sister baker came to b-ville
and we got up and were to shawna and skips by 8 to help feed the cows
that was interesting...esp. That early! I was thankful for sis Forrest
who brought boots for us to walk through the mud! Then we went and
helped clean the church! Did some normal missionary stuff throughout
the day, lots of service! Until I decided to drive out to shedd this
small town without a GPS to find a la and the sun was going
down...turns out we ended up driving around for an hr trying to find
this was soooo lame hahah so sis baker told me about her
"8 boyfriends" instead of us talking about how we were going to make
it back to Brownsville in time for our dinner appt.! Don't worry we
made it! It was quite the adventure! I did learned a lot from sis
baker that day though she is a visa waiter for Brazil! She is great, I
love her and she can rap so it's cool. We got to our appt at the Meyrs
who I have never eaten at before but have met and they had there
friend over mike rossiter who is a potential and an amazing guy and
apparently famous he is the only guy in the world that has TAZED AN
ELK....and so if you have ever heard or read his story on the
news....we are pretty special and got the full story which was
hilarious and probably the best part of our day cause we also got to
share a message with him! He gave us his card at the end and said to
call us if we ever needed anything....were all mike I don't  think
your realized what you just did, you gave missionaries your info hahah
we are calling him soon!
 We are still working on a day to set up with our landlord and his
family! They have been busy but I know it will happen and we are so
ready for it we are just being patient and not too pushy...he texted
us the other day and said that he talked to his wife and they want to
do it and will let us know a day soon! I know they will feel the
spirit here.
 Today was eventful we did a quilt class for an hr not much time but
I'm starting my own quilt and there is a la named Brenda who is
teaching us! She is super talented and then we spent the day with our
branch mission leader and his sweet wife (isaksen)...we followed them
to Albany to get our to front tires replaced cause before i got here
Olivia the excommunicated member backed into the car haha :/ then we
did some shopping and I got to go to target for the first time since
I've been on a mission and use a gift card I got from a lady I did
hair for at cosmos...finally I was so excited! Haha then they took us
to DQ it was the bomb! haha they are the sweetest and love us so much
and we love them! They have a pretty dang cute story!
   Something I love this week is that we got to teach the young women
yesterday here in the branch and it was so amazing...I told my story.
It has been a year and I have learned a lot from telling this story.
Every time I tell this story esp. To my companions I realize how not
normal it is but how much it affects, teaches and is an example to
people. I know not all of will know what I'm talking about but just
know everything happens for a reason and The Lord has a plan for each
and everyone of us! It's so great. Be grateful for adversity and
recognize that you need him to get throughout those times! Alma
   Also I love when members invite la or friends to dinner when we
come, it works wonders! Try that in each of the Areas you are
in....members and missionaries together that is how The Lord would
have it!

Love love love sister heywood!!!
