(This is taken from Savanna’s letters to mom this week.)
Yep, I’m in the country and everything is spread out. It’s a lot different to get people involved when they are spread so far.
Talking to you guys on mother’s day didn’t really affect me too badly. It’s been kinda a rough week but I just push through. I have decided that I want to be a great member missionary when I get home. Go out with the missionaries all the time and just help out. I realize now how important members are in the work. I got asked to play the piano for our meeting when Elder Kapishke (of the 70 ) comes. I am SUPER nervous. Pray that God will bless my fingers- the hymns they picked for me are hard!
I’m sweating a lot- working hard and love the letters!
We had such a good week this week. To start out with a funny: We were in the middle of studies when we heard a noise outside our window. Gatita was there! She is always hanging around and she just really wanted to join in on our scripture study!!! haha these are the only pics from this week…
Onto some good stuff!! We had Zone Conference this week. It was so great and I felt the spirit so strongly. I know that our President really was called of God to lead us here in Alabama. He talked about how there are countless excuses not to do missionary work. And to apply to y’all: there are countless excuses not to live the Gospel. But there are so many more reasons to live the Gospel. The promised blessings are countless, and although some of the things we go through may not be the best times in our lives, they will the best times FOR our lives.
My testimony of the power of obedience has grown so much. I also believe that our Savior Jesus Christ will help us with anything if we ask sincerely and with a desire to change. I love this Gospel, I love my Heavenly Father and I love y’all! so much. Have a great week and do something out of your comfort zone that will make you grow a little bit! Adios!
