It has been another happy week in Mason Ohio. To answer your question, no I haven't gotten my package yet but I should be getting it. When packages get sent to the mission office they don't forward them so I have to wait until I see Presdient and Sister Porter who are gonna bring them to our zone conference . I am super excited for zone conference. It is gonna be so great. You can maybe find some pictures of me this week mom :) I cccaaannnn go shopping but I probably wont. You can just buy a size ten in shoes and I can just wear alot of socks if they don't fit :) Theres not enough time to go shopping especially since we volunteer for 2 hours p-day. But yeah... Keep an eye out for cute head wear. I need stuff that'll keep my head warm.... But I don't know if I can wear beanies. But if you find one, send it just incase. It was cold last week.. like high of 41 but it is suppose to nice this week and then cold after that. So one more week of nice weather. But yeah. Everything is going well here. I think like 3 appointments got cancelled last week because 3 different investigators were sick. The flu is going around... I really hope I don't get sick. I would die. Blah. It's not gonna happen. But yeah. Our investigators are growing so much. We still have Sierra on date for but I will let you know next week if she is. Then we have Atsushi. The Japanese guy and we had a really great lesson with him last night. We talked about the Savior and his life on earth. It was so great! The spirit was so strong. Then we had great lessons with Sarah, Bekah, an dSherry. They are all so great. I'll let you know if anything exciting happens. They just all still want to learn more about the church which is ALWAYS a great thing :)
This was a good week though :) I think I am adjusting well to missionary life. It is fun and I can't imagine being anywhere else. I feel a need to be here. I have learned so much since being out here though. I have really learned the importance of having a Christ centered life. He needs to be the center of everything we do. If we aren't making choices that'll make us more closer to Christ then we are moving away from him. It is so much easier to have a Christ centered life on your mission but I am going to make him the center of my life forever. I know that it'll bring blessings and I will then have a Christ centered home and my family will be blessed forever :) I love you and I hope you have a great week. I don't miss you or abby or dad or anyone at all!
watch for my letter this week :)
And I accidentally posted the wrong letter from last week.....so here it goes week 9....it was a good one check it out........
Holy Cow it has been a great week! So many things have happened that I am going to go by days. So last monday...
We got a new investigator. Great way to start off the week. We found her last week while we were out tracting and made an appointment with her. She use to be married to a member but he passed away a while ago and her 2 oldest kids are both baptized. She is super sweet and our lesson with her went really well. I think she is more ready for this than she thinks.
Thursday was a normal day. Tracting alot.
Friday We got a new investigator Bekah. She's from Wako texas... We are pretty sure she is FLDS... So we have another lesson with her tonight so we will see how that goes... We don't really know what to do... Her mom was excommunicated from that church when Bekah was nine because she was scheduled to be married and her mom stopped it. So Bekah has had a REALLY rough past.
Saturday we had a crazy lesson with Atsushi. The members that came with us totally took over and it all went south from there.
But yeah. It was a great week. I still haven't gotten the CDs. Hopefully today. Only got a letter from you this week mom and it MADE my week. I had a couple sad dream that everyone was glad I was on a mission because they didn't have to deal with me. But yeah. Just tell Elder Pumphrey that the more you think about home the more you will lose the work. Get the members excited about the work. Start a 40 day fast in the ward where one family a day fasts for missionary work. Our ward did that and miracles are popping up like crazy!
WEll.. Sorry no pictures this week. TWO MONTHS though! It has gone by so slow and yet soooo fast!
Have a great week! I love you and don't miss you at all!
