Its a glorious day here in Florida. Glorious week actually. Its rained everyday this week and when i say rain i mean downpour.People have started to tell us it rains everyday in the summer around 5. So that’ll be EXCITING. It’s fun honestly though. The rain is crazy and there are all the sudden just lakes on the side of the road haha.
We also had the international food festival our ward does every year this week. CAN I JUST SAY I LOVE THE GIBSONIA WARD SO MUCH. They make me so happy like I’m just so happy around them. They are all so unique and hilarious. And I am so beyond grateful I was sent here. So the festival is a fundraiser for the boy scouts but people set up booths with food from where they are from, or somewhere they lived, or served their missions. It was so much fun. We had Korea, Japan, Finland, Jamiaca, Vietnam, Argentina, Italy, Chile, France, Mexico and then some states like Kansas, Louisiana (yes there was gumbo and I ate it), st Louis, and Florida. It was soo much fun. Then we had a fun talent show and they made us perform but it was fun.
The work has been a little slow lately but this week we had a couple really cool miracles. It’s so cool to be able to repeatedly see how much Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ are involved in this work. It’s such a blessing to be apart of this. This week I’ve thought a lot about apostasy. It’s cool. I’m going to try and study it out more. It just makes sense honestly. Grateful for the knowledge I have.
We also had a missionary devotional called why I believe and recent converts share their conversion story and President Cooper speaks as well. Super cool the spirit is always really strong. People come from all over the mission so I was able to see some of my YSA friends. Ah it made me so happy. I’ve missed them. It’s sad to think that I won’t see these people all the time when I go home. Speaking of that… this week I hit my “hump day”. Weird and happy and sad. I still feel brand new. But here’s to making these next 9 months THE BEST EVER. HUZZAH!!!! Hahaha love you fam. Have a great week miss you.
