Making a Difference in the Mish
I keep thinking about coming home, only 3 more months. crazy how fast the time goes. But at the same time I feel like
going home will be surreal. I can't imagine it actually happening and actually hanging out with y'all again. but of course i can't wait!!
Our electricity came back on the next day when the guys came to fix it. I guess the fuse burnt out or something. i don't really know but at least its back on and we can sleep through the night again because we have an electric fan! Things are getting a little better with the companionship. we are working on looking for the good things that happened and not being easily discouraged. I felt inspired to read Moroni 7 and felt like I just really need to focus on being more charitable. I'm working on being more long suffering and not seeking my own in anything. I felt much better after the temple and I was making her laugh a lot afterwards so I think the more I focus on us having fun and lifting her up and being charitable, the better she will feel about herself. It's hard when I just want to focus on the work and not have to worry about my companion, but I'm learning that sometimes you have to compromise and focus on the companion or else the work won't go anywhere, ya know?
YES i got the package from Rudy, and I LOVED IT!!! thank you so much. I was totally rocking the shoes at our last district meeting and got lots of compliments. so cute! Also I loved Melissa's wedding announcement and the other invitations. So fun!! the candy was also gone within 48 hours. so thank you so so so much!!! i really needed that. :)
Well, I really miss you guys. This week was good and we watched the missionary training broadcast. I loved it. thought the little movie clips were the cutest thing ever and so inspiring. I can't wait to share the gospel when I get home. I hope you guys are still giving referrals to the missionaries and letting them teach in our house. They need you guys! Also we had interviews with President and President told me he was so grateful that I was in the mission because he never has to worry about me and knows i will always do the right thing. He also said that a lot of the sisters are reporting on our
exchanges with them and it is making a big difference. Cool huh? It made me feel really proud of myself that I've done my best so far and that president noticed.
But like you said, the only thing that really matters is what Heavenly Father thinks and it's the best feeling to know that he's proud of me and I know he's so proud of you too.
I love you guys!!
