See you in TWOO days!!

Well, this is it.

I can't believe it. My mission has come to a close as of tomorrow. And
Wednesday I will be on my way back to the 207. I have absolutely loved
my mission with everything that I am. I am so blessed to have had the
chance to serve the Lord.

This is going to be short because, hey, I'm going to be home in two
days. YIKES. I just wanted to wrap it all up by leaving with you all
with my testimony.

On my mission I have seen the gospel in action. I have seen how Christ
can literally strengthen us in all things. He can lift us up. He is in
our lives as we let him in. God answers prayers. He cares. How blessed
are we to be under the care of a perfect being that knows exactly what
we need at all times if we are open with him and trust him.

My mission has straight up changed my life. Not a day will go by ever
in my life that I will not be grateful for this opportunity.

God Bless Kentucky.

I will see you all soon! Like really. 2 days.

UH HOW MANY DAYS? (1/25/16)

I have no shame in the fact that this email is going to be a complete
bust. I prepared you all for this sucky email a couple weeks ago so
here it is.

This week we met an angel. This angel is Celine! She is literally a
light in a dark alley! SO this area is like a struggling puppy. Yeah,
that's how I'm going to describe it. It's hard! and the Work is
exhausting. Sister Spiteri and I have been busting out trying to find
people to teach, our efforts have been less than successful. BUT we
haven't lost faith. So this week the Elder, bless them, through a
series of events came in contact with Celine, they couldn't teach her
so they let us know about her. woot woot! SO Celine lives across from
member who has been sharing the gospel with her! So she has been
reading the book of Mormon, and LOVES IT! We had a really a really
great lesson with her, one of those lessons that makes missionaries
just love what life is about, love the spirit that the gospel brings.
Just such good stuff. It would be even spiritual for the fly on the
wall! Then we got to see her later in the week, and had a lesson on
temples..our second lesson...about temples..what the heck that doesn't
happen!..unless that person has been prepared. yup. that's it.

Tow-away. Lucky, because of the Goodness of our loving God our car was
not towed away! So we go to contact this referral and because of all
the snow we were stuck parking on the side of the road. And so we walk
around to this mans house, to give him the bible for his son. We walk
away and I realize! What the heck! Where was my testimony for this man
perishing in unbelief! I walk away in sadness. Realizing what I have
done, and then I get in the car, pull out, and then sister Spiteri
goes uh sister..look at this sign! "Tow away zone" and then I look
behind me, A COP! I was 5 seconds away from not being in my car and
being towed.

But yeah! So his email was a flop! But I will see you all next week :)
have a great week!

P.s. We survived the snow. It was a pathetic storm.
