Skibby sent the following email & photos on Monday, June 5, 2017.  She has experienced some challenges working with her two Chinese-speaking companions, and she refers to this at the end of her first paragraph.  They are nearing the end of their current transfer, ie the "home run stretch"! :)

Hola! Well so many things have happened this week that it is a little bit crazy, but mostly what I have realized is that I have inherited Peter's lovely gene of worrying. Thanks Dad. I would love to be both (see title of email). It is good to worry sometimes. At our last zone conference we talked about urgency. Sometimes we have too little, and sometimes too much. They showed us a graph of stress and productivity. It's one of those math curves they show you in school like a bell. On the left side there is stress and motivation, and on the right side it is too much stress and overwhelmption. Stretch not stress is what Hna Pack says. I am telling you, living day revelation exists because that whole conference was directed straight at me. But actually things have been getting a lot better. We have been ironing out the wrinkles in our relationship and how we do work and everything. There are still quite a few wrinkles, but it was getting a lot straighter. Sadly we are on the home run stretch.

I will give a brief report of the week's happenings
1: Sunday-- a member tells us her 9 year old daughter is getting baptized this week and we have to plan it.
2: Cynthia told us they were throwing her out on the street because they haven't been able to pay for their room. They have been looking for somewhere else to go, but haven't found it.
3: there was a wedding in the church.

I'll send pictures to help sum it up.
