To be short, this week was incredible!
Zone Conferences are this week and it is so much fun! Being able to spend time with other missionaries and our Mission President and his wife is always the best!
One cool thing is that we lost contact with one of our investigators last week, she asked us not to come back via text. Well that isn't the cool thing... this is the cool thing: We ran into her near her home one day and after asking how she is doing we asked how she felt when we were with her and in her words she said "it was a Godly feeling."
This is my favorite thing that we do. We get to bring a Godly feeling to those we talk to. We pray and we teach and testify of Christ. We invite them to come closer to him and we promise them the blessings that come from living the Lord's commandments! I can't think of a more fulfilling thing.
We got an email from a missionary that went home just a couple months ago. He was emailing us and at the same time scraping off some gum from under an elementary school chair... Man I am so grateful to be serving a mission! I am excited to be here and excited to spend the next few months serving the Lord.
This is the BEST thing in the world. I wish that everyone had the opportunity to spend these 2 years serving. Words can't describe!
NOTE FROM CHERYL:
We received the flight itinerary for Elder Howland's return. That makes his return so real...and so soon. Just 2 months until he's back. He flies into Salt Lake on the morning on September 20th...my birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! I can't wait for a hug !!!
