It was so great to see you guys yesterday. You all seemed so happy! Cant wait to see you guys for real in a few months (so that I dont have to rely on a cruddy internet connection to hear what you are saying haha) It was so cool to see Ollie, but for some reason when I tell people about him, I keep saying he is my cousin by accident. Something hasnt quite hit that I am an uncle already haha.
I was also reflecting the other day about how much things have changed. People moving out of the house, Maddie is huge, Sammy has kissed boys (just kidding heehee) , starting in less than half a year Ive got to get a jump start on the whole college, job marriage, and family thing :O That and I woke up with backpain yesterday- I am feeling really old haha Good thing is, is that this whole change and progress thing is going to go on for eternity. Isnt that great(the keyboard doesnt have a question mark, so please enjoy the emoticon)
So my comp and I finally got the whole electricity being shut off thing taken care of and got it turned back on- hurray for warm showers!! I was seriously debating heating up water on the stove and taking a sponge bath- cold water makes me sad.
Our zone is progressing a lot. We have got various baptismal dates with people in the zone and our missionaries are powerful. Im really grateful that I can learn from them so that I can be a better missionary while I have the chance to serve them and help their areas progress. Whatever happens I am seeing miracles happen every day that really lets me know that the Lord is at the front of this work, and where He is at- that is where I want to be also.
I want to invite anyone who reads this email to take the chance to ask God in prayer about someone that you can serve today.- physically, emotionally, spiritually- and then afterwards to go search for this opportunity that He will give you. I know that the life of that person will be effected and your kindness will make them reflect upon the blessings of the gospel, and you will be enriched as well. I know this to be true
I love you all, and pray for you all.
