Need I say more? : ) 
We made this cake in a pot because we had no cake pans!
Surprisingly it worked out really well!

My district in San Jose!
We are so cheesy!
A couple weeks ago we went to the Redwood Forest!
It was so much fun!
Scary things come out of dark places!
Wow! Big trees!
Almost to the top!
My tree-beard! Get it?? hahaha
(I don't get it!) : ) 
"Look at me mom! I'm in a tree!"
Look at that view!
At the top!
The fog was so thick that we were socked!
Wow! Look at that sunrise!
We got to the top and we both were so tired!
Sister Livingston was ready to kill me for telling her that she could keep going!
At one point she said "I want to do un-christ like things to your right now!" 
In a cove we found with an Elder who was being silly!
My companion really liked taking pictures!
I told her this was the last one!
California rally is beautiful! 
Mission Peak round two!
This time we brought our whole zone!
What a good time!
Herman Green and Trojillo
My old roommates from Livermore!
We matched even when we didn't try!
We went to the Black Bear Dinner and ate so many pancakes I thought I was going to die! 
Me and Sister Swapp enjoying ice cream!
We took the bus back and forth from the beach!
It was a super crazy dive!
The bus driver had some real skills!
We were all sick when we got back!

At the beach!
The first thing I did was make a drip castle!
I LOVE the beach!

Scripture Power

I got this email from Julio Lachaga (a member from Jill's mission):

So the missionaries were at my house a few weeks ago, eating dinner, and they decided to sing for me and my brother for our lesson afterwords. We liked it so much we recorded it and wanted to share it with all of you. Here they are singing a primary song called "Scripture Power". It's a big file so I had to put it on Youtube but the video is unlisted so only people who have the link can view it. Feel free to send it to any friends or family you would like. And thanks so much for sharing your missionaries with us. They are a huge blessing to the Washington Square Branch and their service has blessed us tremendously. They are amazing! Thanks again, hope you like the video.

If you click on the link you can see the video! It's a cute little video!

Thanks for sharing Julio!

Hey everyone! Things week were great! Really being a missionary is the best thing I have ever done so far in my life!
         This is a cool story that happened this week: There is a man in our ward that has been trying to come back to church but has something that he is trying to workout. We set an appointment with him and when we got there his family invited us in, but he wasn't home yet. We waited a few minutes and then he came home. We had a great lesson on the atonement and the spirit was so strong! We then got in the car and looked at our phone and he had left a voicemail saying that we couldn't meet that night. We text him and told him sorry, but he text us back and told us " It was prefect like god said, "No! You are going to meet with the missionaries if you like it or not!" It was what I needed and I'm glad :)" It really showed me that God knows what is best for us and that he will help us understand what that is no matter what.
         "Oh how great the plan of our God!" The atonement is real his love is there for us! Stay strong and those little things will help you the most. Read, pray, and write in a journal. As I have been reading the Book of Mormon lately there are so many times where they are commanded to write things down that would bless them and there families. We should all be keeping a sacred recorded so in times of weakness we can turn to the strength that God has already given us.  2 Nephi 25:23 "For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God." I hope you all have a great week and that everything is working out great. I love you All!

HI everyone!
Wow I just read my e-mails. There was a lot of them this week! Thank you everyone I love hearing from you all.  

This week has been great and we have gotten so much great work done. The work in the ward is really picking up and it’s a good thing because we are getting two other sisters here this week. I will be training again and finishing Sister Livingston training at the same time this transfer is going to be crazy!!!!  I'm really not sure what’s is going to happen but there is so much work that can be done here that it's going to be so much fun! 

We hiked that same hike this morning that we did a few weeks ago. It's long but so worth it when you see the great view. 

These last few weeks people have been celebrating Tet, which is a Chinese New Years festival. It has been so fun to taste all the great food and see all the great activities.

Whenever I e-mail I always want to tell you these really cool spiritual experience but, they happen every day all day and to tell you the truth they feel just normal to have. So when I write nothing sticks out in my head Lol.... I know that is it such a great blessing and I thank God that I'm able to do this work everyday. Really I feel like this is what I'm meant to do! Missionary work is the best!!! Really!  
I love you all. Hope that everyone has a great week Love Sister Cannaday

Man, I have been so bad at writing long e-mail! But there has just been so much going on with my crazy mission.  I 'm now training two Sisters and the same time in a weird foursome.  My new companion is from Oregon and is super cute and a little on the shy, but we are braking her out of her shell and it wont take too long. I'm having so much fun right now with the work and with my “mini” companions. I really wish that I could stay here for so much longer even though I love you all.  I LOVE MISSIOARY WORK!
Well I had a problem with The computers today and I’m out of time, so just know that I love you ALL and I'm working really hared and I'm not going to stop until the moment they take off my badge.
