Week 63: Insanely Busy

Dear Friends and Family,

This week has been one full of just about any surprise EVER! We have been so busy its insane... First off, every day was pretty much booked with appointments that we had set up. Though many of them continued to fall through. But all we can do it keep going!!!!!!! Elder Lambson keeps me on my feet and he is a BOSS missionary. His phrase is "chump" so whenever we are slacking we call each other "chumps" HAHA not really. Its just a joke.

Well Exciting news from this week was that we had Ana and her husband, Beto come to stake conference. It was an amazing stake conference which talked about the temples and getting married in the temples and since that has been a topic for them both recently we both think good things are going to come out of that! Ana has been a huge example of faith to me as I have been able to get to know her and see how she goes through her trials and man... if any of you think your life is hard, first i would consider your savior Jesus Christ who had it worst, then think of Ana. Then think of how pretty much the only friends/family you have are your husband and the missionaries. I mean "we" are great! but us being the only friends she has is pretty sad. She has felt so welcome at church and she loves it here! So Be happy you all for how lucky your life is in the church, or with your family or how blessed you are! Lots of people don't have  it that way :)

Well before I turn this email into an epistle, just know that I love you all and am excited to continue to serve the lord :) He does miracles and they are blessing my life! I love you more than food!!!

P.S. just for my grandfather who is deaf, I will refrain from typing "GA" in place of Georgia because when they text through some machine, "GA" means "go ahead" HAHA I love my grandpa :) Hes the best! just like sister Bouton :)

Love you all!
