 To all my dear friends and loved ones,

Thank you so much for joining me on this exciting ride and adventure. I love and appreciate everyone of you and I am so grateful for the support you have given me as I've been out here. My mission hasn't been the easiest thing, but I have loved it so much. I'm so grateful I have been able to come out here and to help others learn more about Christ and learn more about Him myself.

This last week was so good. I loved conference, as I always do. We had some people who we hope to teach who watched it as well, which was so exciting. We are meeting one of them this week to have lunch with her and discuss it.

I loved hearing about how we should be unified with others and love everyone. "In a world where you can be anything, be kind." I think that is one of the greatest things and how we can change the world is by one small act of kindness at a time.

We did some fun service this week packing snack packs for kids at a food pantry. We also did the horses again, where I so gracefully twisted my ankle as I prepped, not even jumping yet, to hop over a fence. Its healing pretty okay now, so it's nothing bad, but it definitely didn't feel nice.

We kept doing visits this week and have been contacting lots of people in our area book. We've had some good conversations from that.

I love you all so much.

 Well hello everyone!

Its was kind of a weird week. It feels like not too much happened. But, I'll do my best.

We did, at least tried, to do a lot of finding this week. We've been contacting people from area Book, calling, writing letters and leaving them at their doors, making goodies, and such. It was pretty interesting. We haven't seen any results from it yet, but hopefully.

We've done A LOT of walking. I don't my shoes are gonna last. We don't live in our area, so it takes 10 minutes to get out of our apartment area before we can start getting to where we wanna go.

Jerry is doing good. He's a little overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time. But he's been taken good care of and he's gonna stay solid, so at least we have that.

Sister Higley went to the temple this week. Woohoo! Sister Chand and I stayed and we had an exchange and went to some appointments together. It was kind of weird, but it was fun.

I've been studying about the plan of salvation this week and it really helps me put into perpetual all of the things that happen in this life. I've learned more about the Atonement and it has become more real to me and I'm able to love this gospel even more, if that's possible.

I love you! Have a good week!
