Dear Family,That title states it all. There is so much road kill in Georgia and it is disgusting. I got your package this week and I was really excited. I love the quote thing, it is so cute and it is hanging on our wall and makes it perfect! :)( Thanks Diane for the great idea!) Did you just not get the pictures printed out to send?
Funny story of the week:We had a musical number in church this week Homeward Bound and one of the Young Women did a solo and she did beautifully. I was about to tell her good job when and Elder in our ward did. She turned around and did a little YES fist pump and squeezed her eyes closed and I had to turn around I was laughing so hard. Elder just won her heart and he doesn't even know it. She lit up. Oh to be 13 again, it was hilarious.
We had our first lesson ever to an investigator this week, it is a long time coming. We were pretty excited. Her name is Barbara. She was really curious and open and had a lot of questions. We are hoping a young family that we met from a member referral will say yes to letting us come over. We're praying hard for that one! :)If you wanted to send me my man shirt I wouldn't object... It has been a little bit colder here but not to bad, it feels like fall in Idaho, I just don't like cold weather and it doesn't seem like it is November but it is already half over. I feel like it has been the longest and the shortest 41 days of my life I can't decide which and it depends on the moment.
Mom you are right. Elders are hilarious. Sister Parker and I take advantage of it and provoke it and we end up laughing a lot. We are the only sisters in our district so we have plenty of opportunities. We have an excellent district, except that half of it is going home by January so we'll see what happens. And I am determined to go and visit a cemetery here in Georgia next P-day. :) See if I can find any sticks. (This is a story from my mission - I enjoyed cemeteries they were quite different)
My companion is lactose intolerant so when she eats dairy she gets really gassy so it is like living with Nolan still. Nasty. :)
And crazy story. You will never believe (and by that I mean you actually will) who I happened upon today and by today I mean I just realized who he was today. :) I was looking at the address list that you gave me and and I looked at Valaine's last name because I couldn't remember and I was wondering what part of the mission her son was in. I saw it was Young because I don't even know his first or last name and then I realized Elder Young is in my district I see him at least once a week for a couple hours and neither of us have realized after almost 5 weeks that we are related. I so knew he looked familiar, don't judge me I'm a little slow... :) At least I figured it out eventually. (He was in the library with her then and she told him they were related and now they both know and got a good laugh from it)
I hope that you guys have a good week it is always so nice to hear from you and how things are going! I love you lots and pray for you always!
