our hearts and our hands

the days are getting shorter...
the air is cooling down...
it hailed twice this week...
once the size of GUM BALLS.
fall is coming
which means winter is right around the corner!
how dis happen so fast?
i feel like it was just yesterday i was getting my 
weird missionary tan lines...
on the bright side...
that does mean CONFERENCE is coming.
and really nothing makes me happier.

this week was good.
we only have one more week in the transfer.
it seems time never slows down!
ya feeeel me?
i'm sure all you school kids (haha) know the feeling
hahaha i'm still giddy about that not being true for me
but it seems i've read a lot of speeches and talks this week
that mention BYU
and not going to lie... 
i kinda miss it.
I'm so grateful for that University.

this week was great. 
i had interviews with president this week
so good.
i have so much respect for him...
it was just refreshing to visit with him and talk about the work!

and we had lots of teaching opportunities this week
and moments that made me feel fearless
i love bearing record of our Lord and Savior
i love Him and know that He lives
i'm so grateful for my time to serve.

"the Lord's work is accomplished by our hearts and our hands."

our boy STEPHEN GOT BAPTIZED this weekend!
our college 2nd ward has been SUCH an amazing support to him
i was worried there wouldn't be a ton of people there
because the ward went white water rafting earlier that day
but there wasn't an open seat in the room.
it was so cool!
he has changed SO MUCH since I first met him a couple months ago!
he looks super excited in that pic riight?

we also  got to participate in an EFY last week
i feel like that needs to be my calling in life.
i love the spirit of efy
and i just LOVE being a missionary right now.
I'm so grateful for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know He lives and I love sharing that message with others every day. This mission is shaping my eternity and I'm so grateful to be here. I'm so happy. LOVE AND MISS YOU ALL.
