I am alive and I have like 10 min on this computer so I will make the most of it. I went to the temple today with Sister Fitzgerald and her recent convert she had. Its actually a way cool story because Sister Fitzgerald was teaching her over the phone. The recent convert's name is Latrina and she had called Mormon.org thinking it was a suicide hotline. Turns out Sister Fitzgerald answered the phone and started to teach her about the Book of Mormon... then it turns out that Latrina is actually in the boundaries of Kirtland Stake. So she sent the Elders and the Elders started to teach her and she continued to teach over the phone once a week. Long story short, she joined the church and we went with her to do baptisms and confirmations today and it was the neatest thing!!!! I also had no idea how much I missed the temple. Man oh man I wish they had a temple closer to us so we could go more often.
Well the rest of this week was great! We saw Cara last night finally. She was out of town forever! I was super worried that she was just avoiding us but she is doing so well and is sooooo open! Plus she likes to read so she is keeping her commitments. I think that is one of the hardest things here. No one likes to read in Ohio it seems like. Well at least the people I had taught in the past.
What else happened this week?.... Oh we had exchanges two days in a row due to me being sick last week and having to reschedule. So I wasn't with Sister Fitzgerald in what felt like forever, and then we had two days at Kirtland right after that which were super packed so we didn't see each other much that day either. We had to take solo tours because of all the visitors. This is such a crazy weird mission. 4 days without really spending any time with my companion.
But overall I am doing really great!The work is going well and these people are progressing. There is so much potential in our group of investigators so I really hope I don't get transferred any time soon.
Well I love you family!!!! Take care! And thank you sooooo much for the package!!!!!!! I loved it!!!!! I am blessed with such a wonderful family :) I LOVE Y'ALL!!!!!!
