Role playing the restoration early in the mornings is always fun. After I'd talked about Christ's life on earth and the atonement and the apostasy, I passed it off to Sister Andersen who started off with, "Joseph Smith was a young boy named Joseph Smith --- wait." Hahaha! I love being a missionary.OK OK OK. First things first! I don't have a lot of time because we have to head up to St. John today. We were supposed to leave about a half hour ago but we had some trouble getting the computer from the clerk's office. But anyways! St. Stephen is AWESOME. We drove Sister Buchanan to Truro and then immediately turned around to head back to St. Stephen but couldn't make it quite on time so we ended up crashing in our STL's apartment in Fredericton. Then early morning we were off again! WHEW, so much driving in this mission.
was a rough day for me. Just feeling down. But remember how I said that Heavenly Father knew what he was doing when He sent me somewhere that gets snow a lot, because it cheers me up? So yeah, we got a blizzard night! I LOVE BLIZZARDS. Also, first time driving in the snow, woot! Well, I've driven in snow I think, but not SERIOUS snow like this. We had to head back to our apartment a few hours earlier than we usually would have. After dropping off Sister Jones (the senior sister in our mission, who came to a couple appointments with us that evening), I told Sister Andersen that that was my first time driving in serious snow and she said, "Yeah, I could tell." *gasp* RUDE. But she was just kidding. Sort of. She said that for my first time, I did really well! But she could tell I hadn't had much experience of it before. Oh well. I've got 18 months to improve!
This week, Angel, one of the young women, got to serve a mini mission with us! We just picked her up at mutual night (did I tell you that Sister Andersen and I are Young Women leaders? There aren't enough people in the ward to fill every calling so we get to help and it's GREAT). It was so awesome! We taught a couple night and we were trying to explain the Holy Ghost - which is more difficult than it should be - and she pulled out Galatians 5:22-24. BRILLIANT. It was such a tender mercy to have her there. The lesson was so awesome!
I could go on forever and ever but I should probably go now.
I love you all lots and lots and pray for you every night! I hope you're excited for General Conference and Easter because HOLY HECK, I can barely contain my excitement!!! Just WAIT 'til you see the new Easter video! Have some tissues ready. It's the BEEEESSST. And I can't wait for the next General Conference issue of the Ensign to come out because let me tell you, missionaries devour Ensigns. Honestly, they're best reading material there is (*cough* other than the Book of Mormon of course *cough*). I can't wait to hear David A. Bednar 'cause he's my FAVORITE. Also, do yourself a favor and go read Alma 26. Gosh, favorite chapter EVER. I was just studying that one again this week. Ammon is so good. OH and Alma and Amulek. My favorites. EVERYTHING IS MY FAVORITE. BUT I HAVE TO GO. Love you!!!
