Whitney had to go to the mission office to pick up a package today and they let them use the computers while they were there. YAY for double email Monday!!!
Hey, I noticed how expensive the watches like Chel's are so I just got me a cheap digital watch so you don't have to get me that for my birthday.
We talked to Elder Skidmore and it looks like we are going to have to move, but there are other rooms available in the same complex. We are going to look at them later today and once I find out the new address of the room I will let you know. For now you can send any letters to the mission office. (luckily that is the address I have been giving people.)
So today we went to the mission office to pick up a package (which apparently it's really rare for missionaries to see the mission office and to see the staff and President and Sister Stoker this often if at all but we see them at least once a week.) anyways... we were there for a while talking to everyone and Sister Morgan told them how I don't like vegetables and all of them, especially Sister Stoker, were shocked. Sister Stoker was giving me suggestions on how I could eat vegetables without really noticing. Let's just say, it was pretty funny.
The first Sunday I was here was fast Sunday and since I was new to the ward I had to go up and bear my testimony. In my testimony I said this gospel is a gospel of hope, peace, happiness and love. Well I guess it really touched a lady's heart and she hasn't been able to stop thinking about what I said so she wrote a song out of what I said in my testimony!!! It's called:
"The Gospel of Love" by Anita F Nickulas
When I am lost and alone
Trying to find my way home
Sadness and thoughts of despair
What can I do, who will care?
I know that my Savior loves me
Atoned for my sins and I'm free
Fasting and kneeling in prayer
The Savior will whisper I care
This is the Gospel!
The Gospel of Peace
The comfort this gives me
it brings sweet release.
I know He loves me!
His arms hold me tight
The Gospel surrounds me
And brings forth the light.
This is the Gospel of hope
This is the Gospel of happiness
This is the Gospel of love.
Pretty Incredible, right????
