An email from Lexis...wow, this last week has been crazy!
well, a lot has changed this last week. my companion left to Arizona. she is on a 30 day medical leave and still set apart as a missionary. her mom is her companion for now and hopefully she will be back before we know it.
the heat isnt too bad and i actually really enjoy it. i love being outside as much as possible.
did you guys ever get that picture from our Bishop? it was of me and sister grant on the 4th of July. he said he sent it but i didnt ever hear if you got it.
i am jealous that you guys got to go on vacation last week and can not believe you were only 20 minutes outside Yuba City. how crazy is that? you guys shouldve just stopped in...haha jk. that wouldve been bad. i would have been on the next plane home if that happened.
Heres a little excerpt from my weekly letter i sent to President Weston:
"I know the Lord trusts me with these two areas. He knows i can do this, therefore I know I can do this. He is going to be there with me all along the way and I know that I can only do this with his help. I am so grateful for this opportunity I have to learn and grow. This trio and opportunity to manage two areas is really going to make me in to that exceptional missionary I know I can become. It has forced me to move out of my comfort zone and take control of this Feather River area. I know what I need to do in this area, where I need to go, and those I need to see. I was surprised at first that i had learned so much only being out here for three weeks, but the Lord definitely made sure I remembered every little thing Sister Grant was telling me. I am sad that Sister Grant is gone, but grateful that she is somewhere that she can gain back her full health. I know this was Lords plan for all of us involved and know that he has a lot in store for us if we are obedient and continue to be guided by the Spirit. I love this work and I love this area. I am so glad I am out here serving. "
