Sister Pugmire #48

Dear family,
how is everything in Arizona? Happy anniversary to Jill and Scott, 18 years whoa-who! and Happy birthday to Kalanie, 9 years old is a big number... its also most 2 whole hands of fingers!!
This last Tuesday we had an interesting run in. We were walking back from our district meeting when a women stopped us and told us she had been looking for us for an hour. She was tired of living the way she was and wanted to find the peace. Turns out she´s been in a homosexual relationship, practiced witch craft and attempted suicide. Holy apple sause. I called our zone leaders and told them I don´t think we´re supposed to handle cases like this but they said to keep with her. We love her so much, she is a very sweet spirit but a handful. She calls us when she feels lonely or want to kill herself, etc. We brought her to church yesterday but it took all of our strenght. We literally pulled, dragged, pushed, and chased after her (running). As we were crossing the gate to the church building she bolted. I ran after her for a bit but gave up the chase. She didn´t want to come to church. She said she was afraid. Well gees every one has fears, and the only way to get over them is to face them. 
Also she has 6 cats.
Our big activity monday turned our pretty fun. I ate 3 completos and was so full. the pictures I´m sending are from the activity. 
These passed 2 weeks I´ve been teaching english class but its been a poor showing I guess we need time to get the word out. Either way I have a fun time teaching. One of our investigators, Patty, comes. She has a testimony of the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith but she hasn´t linked that to the fact that she needs to be baptized again. We´re trying to help her understand that the authority is in THe LDS church. 
We had a missionary night this week and got 2 new investigators out of it. Pamela is one of them and she came to church last week. We feel like she´ll be able to progress really quickly. 
And thats a bout it. I´m stil the nurse and every one still calls me. One elder went to the hospital this week and was told he had appendisitis. He was rushed into surgery where they did a echograph and found out it was kidney stones. That was a big scare.
have a great week everyone!!
Hermana Pugmire.
