... has it really already been a year and a half?
so.... the first thing I really want to do when I get home is go to the temple. .. Can we do that? We could even just go straight from the airport to there and that would be fine with me! :) And I´m not sure how getting released works, but I would really love to go before that if its possible:)
I love you mom and dad! Thanks for all of your love and support as I have been on a mission. I love you!
You are the best parents EVER! :)
O has his wedding date - it´ll be on December 7th and then he´ll be baptized on the 8th. I am SO happy for them! They are SUCH a wonderful family. And I´m glad that the Lord has been able to use us as an instrument in His hand to find them. A contact in the street to a family being completed and next year sealed in the temple! How exciting is that?! I won´t be here for the baptism, but they promissed to send pictures...
We are working hard, like always..... I love my companion, Sister P. She is THE best. t I can really see her learning things quickly - even though sometimes I don´t think she can see it.
I love being here and working. There are always challenges and things to confront, but those are the best learning experiences. I love that the mission is such a good opportunity to "forget yourself and get to work". I love this work and I love the people here.
We are teaching a family who left the church about six years ago and you can really see the effects of that on them. They have one son who is now seventeen and the other is twelve - and never baptized. The one who is seventeen . It has really been interesting to teach him. He is super smart and has a TON of good questions. He questions everything. His questions are really valid too, but the gospel and the plan of salvation answer them all. We taught them on thursday night and I could really feel the spirit there.
