Tummy troubles and being asked out

So I've been having some tummy troubles the last couple of months. Nothing too serious, just some pain when I eat, no big deal. Because of that, they've been doing some tests and this week they drew some blood. And if you know me very well at all, you know that I HATE needles and I HATE blood. So it was a bit of a traumatic experience and yes I cried, ok. But to justify my tears, the lady that took my blood was so mean! 
And that's all I have to say about that. 

The other day, we were contacting some less-active members in our ward when this moving truck pulls up next to one of the houses we were stopping by. Out pops this guy named Charles who we know from the other ward. He and his work partner, Tim, were moving some furniture for a guy, who just so happened to be a referral we were going to contact next! So that was two birds with one stone and we were able to set up an appointment for later this week. But the really funny part is Tim. Tim is not a member and had never seen missionaries before, much less, sister missionaries. He was enamored by our skirts and great personalities. Lol, I'm totally joking and being vain. But he did try to ask us both out. At the same time. Real smooth, Tim, real smooth. Of course, we told him no, but that didn't stop him from trying different ways of wording things for a good 15 minutes haha. Poor thing. 

The elders in our ward have this thing where they like to prank us. Normally, they flip our windshield wipers up and turn our mirrors in and open our gas tank, and we get them back and it just continues. But this time, the got creative. We'd left our bikes in the back yard of a member, and they decided they'd put them on the roof. We pull up to said member's house and Sister McDonald goes, "Why are there bikes on the Leavitt's roof?" And I looked and then shouted, "THOSE ARE OUR BIKES!" Stinkin' elders. 

We got a new investigator this week! Her name is Karolee and she is awesome. She's an aesthetician and she paints her puppy great dane's toe nails pink and she's awesome. She was a referral form the zone leaders that they tracted into in our area and the first thing she said to us when we had our lesson with her this last week was, "So tell me why I should be baptized." Uh... hahaha well, we will most definitely tell you! She's great. We feel like her intent is real and that there's something missing in her life that she's looking for and we can help! So exciting(:
I read a scripture this morning during my studies that rocked my world. It's in Alma 17: 11, and it's the Lord speaking to the sons of Mosiah as they go out to teach the Lamanites the gospel. 
"And the Lord said unto them also: Go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls. " 
This was literally a slap in the face. 

We also found one of our pass-along cards in the middle of the road having been tossed out the car window and it made me sad :(
