Well hello my dear family and friends!!!! How are you all? I hope that things are well!!! I just want you all to know that I love you and miss you all very much!!!!!!So this week was not very exciting but overall an okay week.
We got the opportunity to watch General Conference so that is probably the highlight of the week! Let me just start off by saying I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY. Why do I love it? Well its all from the dear Uchtdorf who talked about having an attitude of GRATITUDE :) That is something that is so easy to forget. Honestly I am the worst. Some days its just so easy to list all of the bad things in a row but how easy is it for us to name the good things when we are in bad situations. Something that I have a testimony of is that trials make us stretch and they make us grow. Im not saying I enjoy them or that I always want to have hard times, but I do know that at the end of them I always can find something that I learned from that experience. I just want you all to know that I love you all very much and I truly know that this gospel has the power to change us, purify us and make us become those true sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. I know that God lives and his son Jesus Christ. I know that we have a living prophet who is leading us and guiding us today and speaking on behalf of our father. I know that as we stand strong and immovable even through the hard times that we will be able to truly see the rainbow on the other side. I'm so grateful to be a missionary and to be here in Africa. It is a blessing!
Anyway thanks everyone for the emails and all of the encouraging words. You are all so great and Iove you alot! Stay blessed!
