Everyone was right, "make it to"! This week FLEW. The days are looooong, but the weeks are short! I don't have much time to write, but here's a quick summary of the week:
The Elders for some reason like having themed days. For instance, they have "Blue Tie" and "Sweater ". It was 97 degrees on Wednesday this week, but that didn't stop them from wearing their sweaters! Starszy Dickson wore a nice, red sweater but Starszy Rasmussen kept calling him "Mr. Rodgers" ALL DAY...so I don't think he'll be wearing that one anymore. Hhaha.
Richard J Maynes came and spoke at our devotional. It was incredible. Before he came and spoke to us, he asked if we would read his talk titled, "Truth Restored"... I would encourage all of you to read it! He talked about the importance of missionary work and using the Book of Mormon to teach the gospel. He went in depth on all the different accounts of the First Vision. He is a remarkable speaker! He told us to talk to EVERYONE and to "be sweetly bold". Sister Maynes quickly talked after him and she told us her conversion story. She said that, "There are so many people out there who are searching for something MORE, or just something in GENERAL. You're going to your specific missions to find those people and fill their hearts with the gospel" I loved that! I know that people are being prepared for me and for the gospel and I can't wait to share it with them!
The language is slowly but surely coming along! It is super hard, but I know if I put in the work, the Lord will help me with the rest.
The Czech and Slovak's are leaving...which means half of our zone is leaving us :( We don't get new Czech's until , so the floor of our classroom building will be nice and quiet for a week or so.
I love you all...have an amazing week :)
