Hello my favorite humans! How is everyone?
First of all, thank you so much to everyone that has sent me love recently. I don’t know if I can express to you how much a simple email or letter means to a missionary 1925 miles away from home. So thank you so much for all the emails this week. They make my soul happy!
I am doing so good. Sister Hart is a rock star and we are having a grand ole time together. I love training her… like a lot!
Like always, I sent a few voice recordings. Contact my mom to get them!
This week was a good time. Some of the more particularly interesting parts of the week include temple service, night games, packaging meat for Second Harvest Food Bank, ZTM, weekly planning ice cream, setting up a “FREE LEMONADE AND BOOK OF MORMON” stand by CP housing, and STAKE CONFERENCE WITH ELDER EDWARD DUBE OF THE SEVENTY!
And some of the not so great parts of the week were when Sister Hart got food poisoning from some Urban Hibachi place, and when we had to drop one of our main investigators “A”. That was really hard, but I’m pretty sure I will still be friends with her for a long time.
I have a testimony of how when one door closes, God makes sure another one opens. We received several referrals this week, one of them being a girl named “V”! She is super awesome and we are so excited to teach her!
Elder Edward Dube of the seventy came for our Stake Conference. He spoke in the Oct 2013 General Conference and is from Zimbabwe! It was an incredible couple meetings! He talked about how he gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon and told us to “NEVER GIVE AWAY A CLOSED BOOK OF MORMON!” He also gave a challenge to every single person in the stake to either #1 bring someone to church that is not now attending that should be, OR find one person that is not a member and prepare them to meet with the missionaries BEFORE DECEMBER 31ST!! What an incredible challenge.
So I’m doing pretty great. I mean, you can’t be doing that bad when you’ve got yourself a black name tag and you spend your time setting up lemonade stands and talking to people about how much Jesus loves them.
Jesus loves you.
Go drink some lemonade. (I’m wearing a shirt that has lemons on it at the moment. haha)
I love you more than I loved eating green jello with shredded cheese in it… I actually didn’t like that very much… but I still like all of you… a lot!
