Just kidding it’s not the end, they did find the dog 🙂
Hello everyone it was a GREAT and BUSY week! Elder Blair, my new companion, is awesome! We found out he and I are actually Third cousins! Plus, Elder Blair has a guitar!!!! AHHH! So I’ve been teaching him and it’s been awesome. We’ve seriously had a blast and we’re working our hardest to serve the 36 missionaries in our zone. Admittedly, I haven’t even had time in the evening to work out or write in my journal for 4 days, but I will repent!
I had the wonderful opportunity to Skype my family yesterday and talk to my Mom, Dad, brothers, sister, Grandma, and 2 aunts and an uncle! It was awesome! To all of my family who will read this: I love you guys and I miss you and I’ll see you again soon! 🙂
One thing I really learned this week which God has been preparing me to learn is that He answers prayers the way He knows is best, not just the way we want or in the time we want. In searching for the dog with Andrew last week, I stopped us all to say a prayer, and was a little confused and worried when we still couldn’t find her after an hour. We had to leave, and I was stressed out the rest of the day. Late that night, Andrew texted us and let us know they found her, and he’s sure that the prayer helped, and the experience brought him closer to God. I don’t know the whole story of how he found her, but God answered my prayer in a better way that what I had hoped for! A similar experience happened for the Breinholt family this week. I won’t go into any detail, but I hold in reverence the memories of my dear Grandfather, who has passed onto his next stage of existence, and I believe that he will continue to strengthen me and the rest of the family from the other side of the veil.
I hope all you wonderful mothers had a happy mothers day and I and billions of others appreciate all that you do.
