The "Swishers"

Ok everyone hello and happy Monday!! I hope every one is getting ready for the end of the school year! Woo hoo! So life as a sister missionary in Maryland is super amazing still :) It is very humid already and I feel sticky all the time! But it makes the scenery amazing. I still cannot get over how absolutely gorgeous it is here. Ok so this week... hmmm it is so hard to recall everything that happens because we are always on the go and so many amazing miracles happen every single day. Today we played basketball and volleyball with all the elders in our zone. It was so much fun! My team named themselves the Swishers. Haha every one really likes my last name. I was like seriously thats our name? And they were like yea its sooo sick the Swishers! And i was like oh thats whats on my family christmas cards. They like to tease me out here. Haha I don't know why? I would never tease any one :P So my companion and I Sister Schofield have had a great week! Every single day I learn soo much! I cannot believe that on Wednesday i will have been in Maryland for a month! What the heck? Where did the time go? I wonder if the time is flying by for everyone else. Well the Jimmys are doing amazing still. Sister Jimmy still wants to adopt me and Brother Jimmy just got the priesthood and has us come read scriptures with him about the priesthood all the time so he can learn more and more about it. I look up to the Jimmy family so much! They are so humble and are always wondering what they can do for everyone. We are still teaching Evelyn Jimmy but we had to push her baptism date back a week because she feels she is not ready yet. We are visiting this recent convert named Sister Jones who lives right next door to the Jimmy's! She is single with 8 children! Their family is so awesome! I love going over there, it is so comfortable to be in their home with them. I love all the people out here so much! I already get so sad thinking about being transferred to another area. I started to miss my family a lot this week but then I just dove in and started working even harder and it made me 10x happier. I love serving the Lord and can't wait to see you all again and tell you about all my adventures out here. I am praying for all of you! This week I went out and bought a new device that will help a tech challenged person like myself share pictures so it better work!!! Keep SMILING!!! :)
