My mind has been all over the place this week. I hope and pray that each of you might get something out of my letter this week that will help you in your life. Here are some highlights of my week.
-J called us one morning and asked us to come teach her an C a lesson that afternoon. What investigator does that? Golden! The lesson was awesome and it gave them a lot to think about. They were at church this Sunday.
- We had another lesson with the S Family this week! They are so excited to be baptized on the 15th! We have spent a lot of time just being with them this week. I'm so excited to watch them progress in this gospel and seeing all the blessings they receive.
- Sister Brewster went down to Sacramento this week her departing temple trip so I got to spend 2 days with the Cottonwood Sisters! Man we had too much fun!
- Wild fires are going crazy here! There are 3 of them right by us. If there is anything I would ask you to do this week, it would pray for the people here. They have been going for 3 days now and are still 0 percent contained. Our "mom" showed us some videos last night and well I couldn't sleep last night. Please, please keep the people here in your prayers!
-Sunday we had an amazing lesson in Relief Society. It was actually inspired by Sister Brewster. Last week we were at a members home talking about Sister Brewster going home and her next step in life.
She said "I have to find that right man" then Brother M said "no, you have to BE THAT GIRL" We all know that lady or man that we look up to, that we want to be just like, THAT GIRL that everyone
wants to be like. What are her/his characteristics? How can you get them? And then the last thing she said in the lesson...."and maybe you were that girl you wanted to be, what happened,...you can still get her back!" I have struggled this week when people tell me "man you are coming out of your shell","you are starting to talk now",etc. It's been frustrating knowing that I'm not "changing" I'm just getting my personality back! I'm not trying to be someone else anymore. I just want to be myself and that's what my Heavenly Father wants. I'm changing my character but not my personality.
-It's Sister Brewster and I's 6 month "anniversary" today! Woot!!
Thanks for all your support and love.
