Oh man, thanks for your email. And for the card and the money. And for just being awesome. I freakin love your guts!
Thank you for all the news! The music sounds perfect, I am so excited for it!
So happy to here about jack and the sibs.
K, so I just talked to J on the phone for 30 minutes and now I have to go, dang it. So sorry.
I will put a letter in the mail today. Please understand.
Love you more than all the missionaries in the world:)
Ok, thankfully I got a few more minutes on a computer.
So, highlights of the week-
-R took us out to eat on Saturday and she went out teaching with us and then we had a study session with just her at her house. It was so amazing! She is just so awesome! She asked me to speak at her baptism on Friday and that was a really humbling request. I don't feel worthy/like I should do it but that's what she wants. Hopefully I can say something that brings the Spirit :)
-Finally saw A again and he is back on track to get baptized. Not sure how committed he is to the restored gospel but he's definitely committed to being baptized so we will see how that all shakes out.
-J and her kids are having a tough time with J parents. They think the Mormons are brainwashing her kids and she is a bad parent to let them be baptized. It's rough. We are going to go over every day this week to strengthen J and provide support. Please pray for them!
-Today we spent the day with the Spanish Sisters - there are seriously no sisters down here, and it was so fun to just have a girls day. We emailed, went to Walmart, and washed and waxed our cars by hand together. It was so fun! I love them! Also, weird coincidence- Sister Roberts was in the same MTC district at Nathan VandeGraaff. How crazy is that? Mind blown...
So this week will be full of tracting, last minute visiting teaching (we are assigned to 5 sisters and of course we put it off til the end, dang it), baptism prep, and singing in the car. Also, hopefully I can keep my eating under control, the Spirit with me, and stay focused on my purpose. It's weird because I have 5 months left - it feels like an eternity and it feels like a really short time at the same time. I'm trying not to think about what I want to do when I get home, who I want to hang out with, how it will be to see yall again at the airport. Oh man, that sounds totally trunky, sorry. I really am staying focused, I need to really work to continue to control my thoughts and just throw myself into this work for the last precious weeks that I have hear. I love this work and I really wouldn't mind doing it forever. It brings so much joy and you learn so much - I'm a little scared to come home because I don't want to go back to being the same person I used to be. I just want to keep moving forward for the rest of my life.
Sorry about that rant. I love you so much and just want you to know all my thoughts and feelings. Hopefully that's not weird :)
Love you so much! Give John, Cheyenne, and Caitlyn hugs for me! What is Caitlyn's address? I got her package, just loved it, and wrote down my thoughts and feelings from some of the talks that were in that binder. I want to make copies and mail it to her. I'll just send it to the house for now but in the future I want to be able to mail stuff straight to her.
Hug Dad and Jack for me too!
