The Gift of Wheels

Hey everyone! What a crazy week! 

 
First of all, we received a call from the mission vehicle coordinator earlier this week…this was the dialogue…. 
 
Elder Green: “Sister Colvin and Sister Ormond! I have a present for you!” 
Sister Colvin: “No way, Elder Green! What is it?” 
Elder Green: “It has 4 wheels and drives! I have a car for you!” 
Sister Ormond: “SHUT UP! NO WAY! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” 
Elder Green: “Excuse me? What?” 
Sister Colvin: “Don’t listen to Sister Ormond! *chuckles* Are you teasing us right now, Elder Green?” 
Elder Green: “Absolutely not. I will have the assistants drive it to you today. I thought of you when we had a car open up. I know that you’ve been having a hard time with the buses lately. So…happy trails! Have a good day!” 
Sister Ormond and Colvin: “THANK YOU, ELDER GREEN!” 
 
And…after that phone call….
Both of Us: “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAA! GOD LOVES US! YYYYYEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH! AIR CONDITIONING IN A CAR! ALL THE TIME! YEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAA! 
 
We then proceeded to dance throughout our apartment, laughing giddily the entire time. It was a very happy day in the life of Sister Hannah Colvin! 
 
We have been really working on making our ESL program more “spiritually friendly” and inviting all of the students there to come to church and to progress in the Gospel. ESL is always such a blast. I really have loved teaching it, especially on this last part of my mission! I feel I am more able to concentrate on what they need and how to help them get that! The craziest quote from Bob, a student at ESL this week was, “What does the word promiscuous mean?” The saddest part? We didn’t even know how to explain it to him…and turned to a 78 year old Indian man, who answered it perfectly. Oh. The Life of a missionary. 🙂
 
We actually don’t have a lot of time today because…we are going to go and play sports with the zone! 
 
I love you all so much! 
 
Love, 
Sister Colvin
