So i cant wait to find out where i get reassigned! i am hoping for boise idaho! because thats where my teacher bro corbitt went and he is the bomb so it has to be awesome there right!! also, Aunt Naomi sent me cookies!! That was so sweet and they are yummy!! Speaking of yummy, the ice cream here is sooo good. i may have it twice a day wednesdays and sundays. dont worry, i utilize my gym time. ten laps to a mile! never gets old!!:):) I have become so close with sister baily, sister mullen, sister crawford and of course my companion sister allen. we are the visa-waiters! i am so blessed to live and be with them! they help me learn and we can laugh so much together. We were also really close with the elders in our district! Now they are out in the field killin it. (in a good way) Sister mullen also teaches me how to do yoga. And sister bailey is a p.e. major so at gym she is runnin around doing ab workouts that i didnt even know existed! Sister allen is way good at volley ball.

I am glad i have this extra time at the MTC to better my teaching skills. teaching is so hard and so rewarding. I have learned so much here. Something hit me the other day in zone teaching. We talk so much about what to do and what to say and how to organize, plan and teach. But there is more to missionary work than just doing missionary things. We must become like Christ, so that those we teach will recognize us as servants of the Lord. Not as convicing salesman or only service givers, but disciples of Christ. We have all been converted and we share His message. This is not my church, it is His. And just as vital and having good teaching skills and learning how to contact and such, is who we are as people, as disciples. I hope to become more like Christ and i am leaning every day. i love you all! I pray for you always.
|Yay for Brisbane!!!|
