Y'all. ONE. WHOLE YEAR. Time is flying. I'm talking breaking-the-sound-barrier kind of flying. I can hardly believe it! But I love this work with my entire soul and being!!!!!
It's been a hot minute (again) since I've written weekly but I promised my parents I would send one. You're welcome.
This week has been a blast! We went on trade-off's with our STL's, S. Beecher and S. Prue! It was so fun but I am so grateful to be back in my area with my beautiful companion. She's kind of the greatest (even though I have to force her to hug me).
This week we took our cute recent convert, Cherrie out to give a Bible to someone who had requested it! The lady who had requested it lived in a super dodgy neighborhood that we had been advised not to go in....oops. Gotta do the Lords work! When we got to the door there was this ghetto "keep out" sign on the door so naturally the two, sweet, small-town-missionaries-from-utah were not about to knock that door. Miss Cherrie with no fear told us to knock it anyway. Yes ma'am! The lady didn't actually live there but the other lady who did was so nice!! #blessed Miss Cherrie was a bomb missionary and just gave her the Bible and the Book of Mormon instead!! She's actually a missionary and we were her members present....
Florida is a blessed land folks and Gainesville is where it's all at!!!! We met this super nice lady this week who is the best neighbor ever. We were asking her about a former who lived next door to her and she literally knows everything. Which is huge cause in the south no one knows anyone. In fact, she knows her neighbors so well that when her one neighbor didn't bring in their trash bins after trash was picked up, they called the police. Turns out he had had a stroke and no one knew! I strive to be like this woman. She's my new role model.
God was so good this week even though it's aprox 728373 degrees outside. I would only ever get this sweaty and this many bugs bites for God and His work. That's how much I looooovvvveeeeee being a missionary!! I'll post some pics that prove it.
