is the best. And you're the best. I love you both so much for doing the
RIGHT THING. For doing those simple little but HUGE commandments.
You're both great great missionaries.
You like football? What the... So does my companion. She's dying. Football season/Halloween/her birthday, it's all her fav.
So this week has been a roller coaster, and I apologize for
being a downer last week. I sometimes feel like my world has crashed and
burned one day, and then couldn't be better the next. Missions are the
Wednesday we had our Zone Training, and that went well.
We also had our interviews with President, and that went well also...
it's always SO nice to see other missionaries. It's funny that I love
them about just as much as you guys even though I've known these people
for only 5 months. Can you believe I'm coming up on my 5 month mark?!
Weiiiiird. Well, all the missionaries seem to be having it really rough.
Whether it's their area, or their companion, or discouragement, or
whatever. I'm so blessed to be in Medicine Lake (President claimed to be
the best ward of the whole mission) with Sister D. She's so great. I
really have lucked out, so I'm worried to find out next week about
transfers! It's already here again. I can't believe it.
Well, J and D and their boys are still progressing.
Really, the only thing that is holding them back is J's divorce
that they're still working out. We had a lesson with them on Tuesday
with the H's. I think I've talked to you about the H's before
but a LONG time ago. I met them the first week of my mission on
exchanges and this couple is amazing. Well, they found the church last year, and
got baptized this past February, and LOVE the church. They are so
active, so missionary minded, and are just the best people in the world.
President told us that we needed to have them come to the 'move out
until the divorce is final because you're breaking the law of chastity'
lesson with us. They did. And they even offered D to stay at their
home until they get married, etc. They're so great. J and D
are still figuring things out though with the boys.
So, we taught them the Restoration. We watched the Joseph Smith movie,
and afterwards, I bore my testimony. And balled. J was emotional
as well. The Spirit was SO strong.
Thennn...Yesterday they came to church, DRESSED UP for the first
time! That may seem dumb, but that was a huuuuge step. They've worn
street clothes every Sunday for weeks and weeks, but this kind of showed
a sign of their commitment. Their boys participated in the Primary
Program!! And then we had a 'Linger Longer' (don't you love MN?) after
Church and J even brought a salad. So, they definitely loveeee the
church, it's just the divorce that's holding them back. I love them with all my HEART!!!!
Sorry, I feel like this email is super boring and scattered.
Umm... yeah, anyway, Sister D. and I worked our TAILS off this week.
Harder than I have ever worked. It was great. Our goal is to be
exhausted by the end of each day, and I really really am.
I love you all! I'll send a couple pics. Have a fantastic week
and know that you're in my thoughts and prayers and that I love you!!!! xoxooxoxxooxoxox
