Dear Mouse-Pads and Keyboards,
How’s it going? Good? Gooooood.
This week was good n stuff. We had interviews with our Mission President. That’s always cool. He reinvited my companion and I to commit to meeting the Standard of Excellence before I go home, which means at least two baptisms. We know we can do it. It’s just going to be way hard. But that’s okay. Missionary work is not suppose to be easy.
But really. These last few weeks are going to be a roller coaster. We had dinner with this RM girl and she said that she was pretty much bi-polar the last few weeks and the a couple weeks after getting home she got way depressed. Yayyyyy. Exciting! Can’t wait! (That’s sarcasm if you couldn’t tell)
Here’s a couple of photos….
Cow with the Tetons in the back again. The sun was hitting the Tetons all cool, but it didn’t capture it liked I hoped it would in the photo. Oh well.
And a selfie, because I haven’t done that in a while. Long while. I think. I’m not sure. Don’t really remember what I write each week.
But my thought this week I wanted to do something about moving forward. Kind of for me, but also for everyone else. I don’t really have a scripture for this but I’m reminded of something one of my young women leaders said about the iron rod. She said she liked to envision it being a vertical rod instead of horizontal. Having it vertical reminds you that you have to keep moving up otherwise you will start to slip down. If you are not progressing then you are regressing. This is something I need to keep in mind for my last few weeks, but also just in life in general. After my mission I can’t just stop. I have to keep moving forward. My mission has been one of the best, most spiritual times of my life up to this point, but it can’t be the best, most spiritual part of my entire life. There are things to come that are going to be even more.
I love you all! Have a great week!
