8 Months Down baby! Check.

Well hello Family! How are ya all doing?! great I bet.  

So news of the Week, not much. haha no jk lets see..  So yesterday was my 8 month mark! Wait What!?! Now that is just wild.  EIGHT MONTHS. daannnnggggg.  that's a long time right?!  I know I know.  crazy.  There is this one lady in our ward who is about to give birth, and I was here when she found out she was pregnant! yeah..

I've seen SO many miracles these past few months and I am so grateful that I chose to go on a mission.  It has been the greatest decision that I've ever made for my life.  I feel like a whole different person, but then I feel mostly the same too! it's kinda funny. 

Well, Yesterday Merle finally received the Priesthood so that was pretty cool! 

um I got Whit and Parkers Wedding Announcement and I'm pretty sure Parker has longer hair than me! ;)

On Saturday we had this Relief Society Project that was really fun! for months the women have been sewing these Hygiene Kits for girls in other countries, and we had this assembly line and we put everything together and I, personally, put the draw strings through all the bags that had been sown and it was really fun to be a part of.  I've always loved doing service projects.  It makes me feel so good. Every time. Without Fail. I just love it! 

Sorry this is going to be a shorter email. Not lots of time.  I'm Really excited for this Saturday because there is this lady named Karen in our ward (different Karen than all the other Karen's I swear) who is going through the Temple for the first time in her whole Life and I get to go with her! ahhhh!!!!!!!! I was originally going to be her escort possibly, but Sis. Ozorio the Relief Society President is going to be it! the reason we get to go is because well kay, so When I first got here, She was one of the very first people that I Actually met and She was barely becoming active again.  She is married to a non-member and had spent years inactive.  Well I love her. We visited a lot and I went to the Temple Prep classes with her clear in the Spring.  Well she was suppose to go through the Temple long ago, but over the summer, The adversary got in the way and all these crazy things happened. it was stress-sad.  So about a month or so ago, I went over to her house (which is a miracle story for another time) and I sat her down and I was real bold and straight forward and just like Karen it's time.  She knew it.  God knew it.  I knew it.  So I set up the interviews, got her the support she needed from some special individuals in the ward and now here we are.  Now, I am not saying that she is going through because of me, But I know that I helped her a lot and I know that she is one of the reasons why I'm in the Langley Area.  I know I was suppose to be a part of this somehow even though it has nothing to do with me and most people don't know how much I love this lady!  So yeah... I will not be getting a baptism in October like I had hoped for and promised, But I am going to get the opportunity to watch someone that I care so much about recieve her saving ordainances! I feel so humbled and blessed.  Really this is what it is all about.  It is about bringing souls unto Christ.  It is about mourning with those that mourn and comforting those that stand in need of comfort.  It's about being there for one onther.  It's about loving everyone and never ever EVER giving up! It's about trusting in the Lord and about focusing on the positive.  It's about always looking up and always looking for opportunities to serve! It's about so much that I can't hardly take it in. 

The purpose of life it to gain experiences and bodies and become like our God.  Life is to be cherished, not wasted.  I love this life I was given..  I love the people in my life and I love the things I've gone through that have made me the person I am today.  I love being a daughter of God.  I love serving him.  I love putting my name tag on every morning.  I love LOVE!

I know that it's all true ya know?? like how can it not be true?! I've never been so sure of anything in my life.  I could go on and on, but My time is far spent.  I love you all so much and I am looking forward to the day when I can say that to your sweet faces! please remember the small and simple things and hey, be strong and of good courage! Life is good. Long live the walls we've crashed through!

1-10-15 five stars! 3-2-1.  keep calm and carry on.  WORK iT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
doubt the doubts! 
I LOVE YA ALL! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
