S’more s’mores. {July 21, 2014}

Dear telephones and staplers,

 
Can I just say how thankful I am for the temple? Sister King and I went to the temple this Thursday FINALLY. We needed to recharge our spiritual batteries. We felt as though we were running on 5% and were blinking red. That’s not good as a missionary! Everything seemed so much more dramatic when our batteries were low. Now we are functioning human beings. Yessssss.
 
This week we visited the sister in the retirement home that was asking for us. She didn’t have her hearing aid in though so that made it interesting….I had to yell to invite her to be baptized. I’m sure that not very many missionaries can say they yelled at someone asking if they’d like to be baptized. The traveling Sister Training Leader, Sister McKnight, was thoroughly entertained. She said she hasn’t experienced anything like that yet on her mission and she’s going home at the end of this transfer.
 
Speaking of transfers! We get calls this Thursday. Now. I’ve been in Ammon for about six months and in interviews with my mission President this past week it sounds as if I need to be prepared to leave. That’s okay. I LOVE this area. I love my people here, but I also wouldn’t mind experiencing other parts of my mission. We will have to wait and see!! The suspense is killing me! (not really killing. I can wait)
 
Not much else happened this week. I’ll be playing for the musical fireside on my flute for the visitors center on Sunday. I’ll be playing a medley of songs about Christ called “He Lives!” I love preforming so I’m excited. I need to practice more, but I’m excited. 
We did take some pictures of a really cute wedding reception (don’t worry, we didn’t crash another wedding. The stuff was just set up)

My companion drew a picture of Christ for practice. She is ashamed on how terrible it is. I’m ashamed that she thinks this is even remotely bad!!!

And a shameless-selfie because I really don’t know what to take pictures of 200% of the time…

I guess this brings us to the spiritual thought of the week…
 
Fun fact: I usually never know what I want to do for a spiritual thought. I just choose something and go with it.
 
So I love the NewEra magazine Mormonads. They’re great. This week I’ll share one about attitude….

The scripture (Proverbs 15:13) says…
 
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
 
Sounds like a Confucius say quote thing, doesn’t it? But it’s a good thing to remember. Doing service and turning out from yourself really will make you happier. The best way to be happy is to share the love of Christ with others.
I’ll share another mormonad just because I like it….

As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
 
Look at that sad Elder with no mail…..you should write to the missionaries you know! Even if you’re not best friends with them or whatever, they’ll really appreciate a letter from home. Just sayin’
I love you all and hope you have a great week!
Love,
Sister Gale
