sounds like a busy weekend! they usually fly by too 🙂 we try all week to teach and invite and get people to church. sunday mornings are suspenseful. we see who comes to church and figure out how we can be better. it’s really nice to have the gospel and the sacrament compensate for the disappointment when no one shows. there is just something about being in the church building with other people who are just as imperfect and in need of the atonement, all there to worship the Almighty. it’s too cool. it just blows my mind that these people won’t find out for themselves. if they would just come! but i respect agency. i am grateful for it. and i hope that it will mean more to them when they finally do come to church and can feel the spirit in the members, the ordinances, and the chapel.
things have been looking sunny and getting better. you’re right. we can do hard things.
happy conference week! woohoo! go team! really i can’t say how excited i am for general conference. it’s gettin real. just thinking about it makes me want to dance! man, i might pass out. this is just too cool. get really y’all because we have a very important weekend ahead 🙂
i am grateful for this time because it’s helping me realize that i need a savior and that i definitely need his grace. that’s such a beautiful word isn’t it? grace. i really might name my daughter grace because my mission has taught me so much about the significance of this word. i still have a lot to learn of course so i guess i’ll buckle up.
i’m excited you got to go to the conference! i probably saw you when they showed everyone in the conference center. it was such a good conference! it’s such a blessing to be a woman in the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints knowing that we have made divine covenants and have the strength and capacity to serve as daughters of the covenant. as daughters of the King. what a blessing!
so i’ll keep my eye out for the letters and i am super thrilled to get them!! it’s like getting a piece of home so missionaries get stoked for mail time. we can print here at the library but it costs.
well i hope you have a super sunny week! i love you so much. thank you for all that you do and thank you for the prayers. i felt them this week. just make sure that you pray for the missionaries in your ward too!
paz y bendiciones
