April 12, 2015

Hi mom!! :) My birthday was really good! I got your packages!! :) Thank you so much, I really loved them so much! :) I thought my birthday was going to be kind of depressing this year because it was really rainy and cold this week and sister Albiston was really sick all week so we were in our flat most of the week, but on Friday it was really sunny and sister albiston wasn't sick and the the elders from our area and 2 from another area and Maeghan came over and made me a cake and sang me happy birthday! Plus i got to open lots of presents so it was really fun :)
Your trip sounds really fun! I can't wait to be able to go with you guys again! I like to count my mission by Disneyland trips that i'm missing haha, so far I've missed 2 and i think i'll miss maybe 2 more until i get home ;)
I love you so much and i hope you made is back home safely! :) I'll send a better email in just a minute ;) love you!!!

Hello fam,
This week was my Birthday week!! It actually ended up being a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I started off my birthday like how most 20 year olds do, by teaching someone the Law of Chastity. After that we went back to the flat and I opened all my packages J then right after that, Maeghan, the Elders in our area and the Elders from the town over, came and brought me a cake and sang to me! The rest of the day was pretty normal, but everyone was forced to be extra nice to me that day so I really enjoyed it. J

I got to watch Conference finally this weekend! It was so amazing, I really like watching Conference while on my mission because I feel like I get way more out of it than I've ever gotten out of it before. Plus Mekyla came to one of the sessions of Conference!

Speaking of Mekyla, she fed us on Thursday! It was really cool, she read to us her testimony that she had written down that she wants to read in Sacrament after she gets baptized! In her testimony she talked about how much she loves the Plan of Salvation and the Restored Gospel, she also talked about how much she loves Joseph Smith and President Thomas S. Monson. It’s so amazing to see how far she’s come in just a couple of months.

Well this week was really rainy and cold, and Sister Albiston got really sick, so we took most of this week pretty easy. We still went out quite a bit and taught a couple lessons, but we would also take breaks every few hours so that she could rest, so this week isn't as interesting as the others.  

That’s about my week! It’s starting to get dark at about 6:00 here now, so it’s really hard to find stuff to do at night now, plus now that we share the car with the Elders, we are biking in the rain in the dark a lot more.  Builds character. Side note, I started reading the Book of Mormon at the beginning of the year and I finished it this week! So in case you were wondering, the Book of Mormon is true. Love you all so much! Thanks for all the Birthday stuff you all sent me!
Kia Ora!
