Thanks for telling me that story from when you were younger mom! I actually shared that in Gospel Principles class like 2 or 3 weeks ago! I remember you told me about it a long time ago and we were talking about how somebody else's talents have blessed my life. I talked about how you're singing has blessed my life and that you could have gone on to bigger things like that, but you chose to be our momma. I am forever grateful that you chose that. I wouldn't be here if you didn't!
You are right, one choice can change everything about your life. I'm glad that I chose to go on a mission. It's changed me in more ways than I can count.
I had a tremendous week. Elder Bassett and I have been teaching a bunch. We have a temple tour planned for Rashaun and the Shavers on Saturday. We are going to a part member families home tomorrow to clean it. That will be awesome! Miriam and Larry are still wonderful. They were at church and we are still working on getting them married. We have been working with a Less Active member named Bro. White a lot and I really enjoy talking to him. He's awesome. He has a lot of concerns but a member told us the other day that he has been posting Mormon Messages on Facebook and they have noticed that he has come closer to the church so far. I'm excited to see what happens with that!
Elder Bassett and I have had a ton of fun this week too. We have been getting along better than ever. Well, we had an argument about whether this bright star in the sky was either a start or a planet, but it was funny haha. We're having a great time.
We don't have any traditions in the mission for reaching the year mark. We're not allowed to use fire basically. I'm sure that rule was put in place because of all of the burning of ties and stuff hahaI I've got my interview with President on Thursday and Elder Huntsman and I are going on an exchange for our year mark together!! I'm excited. I can't believe it's been that long already. I'm so glad I still have a year left because I don't want to be anywhere else but here. I feel a deeper commitment to what I am doing and I know that Heavenly Father is watching me and smiling down on me for every good choice I make.
Hope y'all had a great week! Love you!
