Only 5 weeks left! I will miss the opportunity to share her thoughts with you. She has been such a good missionary and I know she loves her mission!
I like my new area. It is interesting how natural being a missionary comes after
a while. It's convenient because it doesn't matter where I serve or who I am
with the principles of missionary work are the same. I was sitting in gospel
principles class yesterday and I was commenting and stuff and I realized how
wonderful it is that because the church is the same it didn't matter that it was
my first day in class... I'm not new to this. It's just refreshing. (:
She is in a new area and she has a new companion. My sweetie thinks she was transferred away from the people she loved in Ft. Worth so it would be easier for her to come home next month.
My companion is great. It is really kinda a tricky thing though because
she has learning disabilities and acts childish in many ways, but she has a
golden testimony. It can be hard because I have to be the leader in EVERYTHING.
if I don't talk to the person I know for 100% that she isn't going to. If she is
afraid... she just doesn't do it. Which is fine. I understand. she really is
wonderful. I'm just trying to learn a good sense of balance.
Remember they were doing a float for the parade on July 4th? Looks like it turned out really cute! Teach is the frame in the sunglasses. She has to pretty much wear them all the time now. She had developed a black spot in her eye and we were very worried that it might be a detached retina, but it turns out her eyes are just very sensitive and they were actually congealing in the hot Texas sun!
It's much cooler in Utah, Teach! See you soon,
