We finally had a rain storm!!! It was so fun! But I definitely don't have the right attire for rain. It was so funny though because everyone couldn't believe we would walk outside in the rain!
This week was a little rough. We pounded the pavement and didn't see a lot from it. But, we can go nowhere but up!
Elyse is still sweet as ever! It's so fun being able to see her grow! The temptation to drink sweet tea is gone and when she remembered that I was doing a chocolate fast for her, she was stunned! There are great blessings that come from doing hard things, like fasting!
Watching President Thomas S. Monson's funeral was a neat experience! Although it's sad that he's no longer with us, we know where he is. His daughter gave a wonderful speech. I'm excited to hear President Nelson's special announcement!
We start our 40 day sugar fast tomorrow! Our zone has also decided to do a 40 day obedience fast. We write down a list of things we can work on and we tell the Lord every day that we will do NOTHING on that list. It's going to be SO HARD BUT IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT! We need to learn to do hard things!
As a mission, we have studied the New Testament and its so cool being able to learn SO MUCH about the Savior. It really enhances my Book of Mormon reading because both are testimonies of Jesus Christ. I'm so grateful for the scriptures and the things I can learn from them :)
Have a great week! The Lord loves you and so do I!
