Week 18 June 22, 2015

Well today I just want to start of by saying that I love my family. I love them so much and I can't imagine a world without them. I am so grateful, and have never been more grateful, for the Plan of Salvation. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have that I can be with my family forever. I am so grateful that Christ loves me enough to have died for me. He love everyone enough to give us all a second chance. I think that is the thing that I love the most about this gospel. No matter who we have been or what we have done in the past, we always have a second chance. A chance to improve. A chance to change. A chance to turn back to God.

This week has been one of the most spiritual weeks of my mission so far. I have had so many amazing opportunities to feel the spirit. To feel it in the room, to feel it work in others and to feel it work in me. I had the opportunity this week to go visit the temple and it was amazing!!!!!!!! I love the temple so much. I didn't get to go inside, but I got to walk around outside. I know that the temple is the house of the Lord. We also had one of the best/most spiritual District Meetings ever. I learned a lot about my Savior's love for me. Man it was such a good week! I testify that this gospel brings a happiness and peace that can't be found anywhere else.

Well some other super crazy things happened this week! Not as spiritual, but definitely worth talking about!

Monday: Elder Barry took me, Hna, Snowden, Melissa (a youth in our branch) and Elder Cummings to the Cheesecake Factory for Hna Snowden's birthday! It was so much fun. Hna Snowden and I shared the Teriyaki chicken. It was bomb!

Tuesday: I got to see the temple! That night we met with this lady named Flor that we found in a park last week and it was so amazing.  She is from Mexico and has a little boy. Super cute family! We taught her the restoration and she loved it. She told us that when we talked to her in the park she could feel something different, and she could feel it right now! We were like YESSS!! That is the spirit! I was so amazing! We left her with a baptismal date of the 25th of July. She has been reading the Book of Mormon and I am super excited to get to know her more.

Wednesday: Exchanges! I got to spend the whole day with crazy Hna Belteton. We had a lot of fun. I had to drive the car..... scariest thing of my life!!!! I felt like I had forgotten how to drive!

Thursday: Crazy story.... We were on our way to do our weekly service at Red Cross and we saw this car swerving in and out and around traffic. Then cop lights! It was a chase! We pulled over super duper fast. And about 10 seconds after the guy drove past us we heard gun shots! I had a mini heart attack... and just about pooped my pants! We also counted a total of 15 cop cars chasing the guy. CRAZY! I am safe and they eventually caught the guy.

Friday: Pretty normal, nothing too crazy

Saturday: The most amazing session of Stake Conference that I have ever been to! It was so good! The area 70 and converts come up and share parts of there stories and it was so inspiring.

Sunday: Father's day!!! Shout out to my Dad! I am so grateful for him and for everything that he has done, does now, and continually does for me! There is no way that I can express my love for him in an email, but he means the world to me. I LOVE YOU DAD!

So one last thing... We got Transfer Doctrine yesterday! annddd...... I am staying right where I am with Hermana Snowden!!! I am so happy! This will be my third transfer in this area and my third transfer with Hna Snowden. We are going to get so much done! I am so excited!!!!

I get to be with this crazy for 6 more weeks!!!!
This is a lady in our branch who is moving back to Guatemala for 7 months! I'm gonna miss her!
