2 November 2015 - Labor and Delivery Sisters.

This has been the longest week of my mission! But possibly one of the funniest and best! So we had kitties! On Tuesday morning Pop made gravy and I made biscuits. I went out to pet Smores because I do every morning. She is getting friendlier and friendlier. I was petting her and decided to pick her up, this was a giant step for mankind beacause she hates people. So I lifted her up slow and cuddled her, she didnt love it but she didnt hate it so it was a huge deal. I set her down and went in to check on the biscuits. I looked down and noticed I had blood all over my shirt. I got a little panicked so I went back out to check on her and she had a little kitten tail hanging out! It was so intense I sat down next to her and started petting her and calming her down. I asked Pop if he had an old towel for her to have her babies on or if she would just have them on the porch rug. I said the word rug and Pop says "Girl, she aint havin those kittens on my living room rug!" My response "No, Pop the porch rug! Do you care if she has them on the porch rug?" Pop "Oh no, I dont mind I'll just power wash it." So that was that. We coached her through all her pushing episodes and out came two perfect kitties. Then about half an hour later two more came out. We needed to be there but also couldn't skip our studies for the morning so we grabbed the Ipad and listened to conference talks while cuddling our Smores and her freshly soggy squirmy off spring. Sister Widdison had asked me just the day before what my favorite Bible story was. I told her it was hands down the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego. It's found in Daniel 3 and its so good! So after a long discussion we decided we loved it even more than we did when we started our study of it. So when it came down to naming the kittens... done. Easy, Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego and David. We let the Elders name the last one and he is the runt of the litter and also white. They decided to name him David like from the story of David and Goliath because he is just a little guy but he is tough! He actually couldn't figure out how to eat so after some help he figured it out. We thought he would die for sure. But then after just a couple days Smores got injured and couldnt make it back to her box to feed them. It was so stormy out so Sister Widdison and I bundled and headed into the storm calling for her. We found her but we had to leave to a wedding of one of our less actives. It was a Halloween wedding and literally probably the most southern thing I have ever seen. It was held in a double wide trailer that was just big and open, one room. All plywood. They covered the walls with black garbage bags and fake spider webs and then everyone was dressed up. It was so hot and humid the cheese on the sandwichs was dripping off.... Yall cant even imagine... I kid you not I imagined it for weeks and my anticipation was off. Haha it was so fun and the Bride and Groom had a blast. They prided themselves with how southern it was! After the wedding we went straight home because we had to be in by 6:30 on Halloween which worked out because we had to find our cat! We found her under the house and she could't walk she had screwed up her foot and it was as swollen and as big as a rabbits foot! Pop joked about cutting it off and making it into a key chain for us.... Believe you me we were not pleased with his comments. But everything is all better now! I feel like Sister Widdison and I are now prepared for parenthood. 
         Anyways we still found plenty of time to do missionary stuff! We had an awesome lesson with Drew and her husband Tyler. It went so good and we read the Book of Mormon with them. Drew said that she has tried to read it before but never got very far because she couldn't understand it. But she said since we were all reading it together it makes tons more sense! I am so glad we have the opportunity to work with her. It just made me realize how different my life would be without the BofM and she made a comment about how she has such a desire to change now that she is learning things. 
        We had a really good lesson with Joseph and Michelle over here at Pop and Ms. Robin's house. We talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ and it was incredible because Ms. Robin shared her experience with us about the day she was baptized and it moved her to tears. It is just so special to be able to make covenants with God to help us improve. We must ENDURE and it will all be worth it! There was so much more that happened this week but those were the 4 biggest ones, Kittens, Wedding, Drew and Joseph. I love yall so much.
Oh wait one more funny story for the road, it has been so rainy lately its constantly flooding so we have been doing a lot of work from home. So we were calling random people from our area book and this was the phone conversation
Me: "Hello its the sister missionaries!"
Indian guy: "Who?"
Me: "The sister Missionaries you met with back in May!"
Indian guy: "What country are you calling from??"
Me: "Uh... the United States.."
Indian Guy: "I think you have the wrong number..."
Me: "Oh... Ok... God Bless!"

Love ya
Sister Kerr
