Thank you so much for the awesome birthday! Also! For the super
delicious cake! It was probability a little compressed but tasted
great! What’s it made of? I liked how it was different layers of
color, did you get to eat some before you sent it?
This week was pretty cool. We had some awesome lessons and I am really
beginning to understand what it means to be bold and love as the
savior loves. We found like seven new families and people to start
teaching as well!
Also, Texas. Still Texas. It is supposed to be summer but we have had
heavy rain two days then scorching heat the rest!
For example, yesterday we were out in a trailer park with dirt roads
in the shining Texas sun, we saw a Hispanic guy mowing his lawn so,
boom, contact. We went over and started talking with him, he wasn’t
too open at first, but then it started to rain, so he invited us
inside and just opened up with his spiritual questions. It is a pretty
cool experience to watch someone just open up about religion and trust
you as a spiritual man.
Also, though it was scary and strange to think about home, I am pretty
excited to go on a cruise! Why does life feel like it is going by so
So we had an awesome lesson with a less active lady and her non-member
neighbor! We want with a super cool couple and while we were teaching
the plan of salvation when her home teachers showed up! It was nice to
have everyone participate and share their testimonies, but it felt
more like a gospel principles class than a lesson…
So the person who texted the picture for Father’s Day is sister bell!
She is super cool and missionary minded!
I hope you have a great week! I was updating my iPad every once and
awhile to see if ya’ll had sent anything and it was a great joy to see
that you had!
I love you!
