|Merry Christmas from LA! Hermanas Berger and Day|
Hi family I love you all tons!
Our car broke down last Monday, so we took it to the shop in Burbank. from there we didn't know how to get back to our apartment and citas (appointments)-- about 8.5 miles away. We decided to take the bus. Unfortunately we didn't have any of our stuff on us -- no cash, no coins! Only our cards, which wouldn't work on the bus. Dumb move, but it happened.... as we were waiting for the bus and trying to figure out what we could do or how else to get a ride . . . a member, a Brother Vern, ran up to us "girl missionaries" and slapped a $20 into Hermana Berger's hand. We chased after him to give it back, but he took a turn and dashed away. What in the world!? A miracle! We used that money to get us back, a 2 hour bus ride #LA, to our apartment. We also got a lot of bus passes back to use because the machine may or may not have given change to us, but that's not important. We all learn in different ways...
Since then we've been biking to and from Burbank and Studio City a lot. It's better than walking!
Anyway, this week we were also able to go to the LA temple for Christmas :) Last night we had a Spanish Stake Activity where we all sang Christmas carols and I got to see all my member friends!!
