It was so good to see and talk to you all yesterday!! I can't get over how low Josh's voice is. He is becoming a man! It was hard to say goodbye but I will definitely be looking forward to Christmas to see you all again!
So after talking with you we went to dinner and then came back to the Garners. They are such an awesome family. They're my family away from home. We played some games while the other missionaries talked to their families. And of course I pushed Gracie on the swing set. She's my best friend :) I'm glad you all thought she was cute. I freaking love her so much! We go to the Garners every Sunday night and every time we're there Gracie and Hayden always have me sing songs and tell them stories before they go to bed. It's my favorite. That was such a cute picture you took of us on the tv. Hahaha I love how you taped your phone up to the tv haha.
As you know most of our investigators have dropped us or it's been awhile since they've been able to meet with us. We call this the 5th week curse. Towards the end of the transfer there are always some bumps in the road. Even though it's tough I know God loves me and the people in this area. Because He loves us He is preparing people to hear the gospel. This next week I know that as we work hard we will see miracles and find those who are ready and prepared. I think of missionary work like a puzzle. Each person is a puzzle. God prepares people and puts all the puzzle pieces together except for one. That one puzzle piece is what the missionaries have to put in. We are the last piece in helping them come unto Christ. God does all the work. I am only an instrument in his hands.
I seriously love being on a mission! I'll let you know next week about all the miracles that are going to happen this week. I am "expecting a miracle." Or should I say LOTS of miracles haha. Thank you for all the prayers. I know that without them I would probably be a hot mess...well probably more of a hot mess haha let's be honest.
I love you all and am so proud of you! I'm so glad I have an amazing family to brag about. Keep it real. Peace and blessings xoxo
