Welcome to the missionary blog for Sister Jeannie Kwan. This website is for friends and family to keep updated on her progress as a missionary. She will be serving for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Oakland/San Francisco area from Jun 2013 - Dec 2014. We invite you to read about her experiences on her mission and leave comment as you wish.
What an area this is. To be completely honest, I don't really
want to leave. Me and Sister Slaughter are doing great. It's actually kind of
weird that you can live 4 months with a person and not totally hate them by the
end of it. It's different. And it's weird because we actually had a really
really slow week. Appointments dropping faster than this state into the Pacific
Ocean, mean people behind doors, trying to find people to teach and finding no
one. And yet. I sleep pretty well at night. But I think that's because I've
done everything I can and I've worked hard, so I'm grateful.
I'm 95% sure we found Kristie Yamagutchi's house. She's got the
most gorgeous view. And she drives a BMW convertible. Smart woman.
We had exchanges this week! Me and Sister Ierubwara ran around
knocking doors. All day, erryday. It's the life. All our appointments fell
through that day haha but there was this one door we were super grateful for.
He didn't have interest in the church, but he really liked the "Witnesses
of Christ" card we gave him. He was blind though, but I'm sure he will
feel the Spirit. Then he gave us these interesting drinks. With no sugar or
calories or protein or.. anything.We still have no idea what it was haha but we
were super grateful. We will have to go back sometime.
I don't remember if I ever wrote about this, but the other week
there was the MASSIVE black widow. I didn't want to step on it because. Ew
nasty. So the girl runs inside her house and comes out with a freaking blow
torch. It died.
Remember the girl who sang with us in Sacrament meeting? Well,
she came to Young Women in Excellence last night and wants to get more
involved! I mean, she told us that she came 50% for food and 50% for us. Not
bad. I think she is going to be great. She committed to reading the Book of
Mormon and she WANTS to know that it's true. It's insane. The Lord has blessed
us so much. Honestly, she loves us though. Transfers are coming up and I've got
an iffy feeling in my stomach. Not enough to make me nervous, but a little
The Broby's and our mustaches! :D
A tree fell on Glendoris's car and she had a bill she needed to
pay on the dashboard so here come the missionaries. I'm like standing there in
a skirt with my arm in the car, and Sister Slaughter's got a metal broom to
hold up all the broken glass. Tempered glass still shatters. So I mean, yes, I
got cut. But they aren't Celestial Kingdom worthy, they're just minor

Pictures from this week... a member invited us over to celebrate
her son's birthday! He's in Berlin on a mission. And my district! And carving
pumpkins! Guess which one's mine... And 'staches.
You all are cooler than the flipside of my pillow. Rock
