Happy Day

Dear Family,

Thank you so much for the letter mom and dad I love them. Jordan Where are you? I haven't heard from you in a while. Dad I am glad to hear that you like construction way more than feeding rabbits. That makes me happy!! Your way to hard of a worker for something so simple. Mom I love the letter thank you for keeping me up dated on whats going on in the world of Orderville. Are you really sending a package?? I am super excited!! Thank you! I am not sure if you already sent it, but I was wondering if I could have some more Emergen-c stuff? I hate but love that stuff it really seems to help me have more energy through out the day and plus I get a lot of vitamins which is always a good thing. But if not it is not even a big deal. Also I was wondering if you could give me my blog address I found out that I can look at it and I really want to!! sledding, being a hermit and homemade pizza sounds awesome!! I am glad to hear that things are going well. Also thank you for the cooking tips they are way good. Hey is Brandt Reese home from his mission??
As for me I am doing so good! I am adjusting to missionary life pretty good. My companion says that I don't even seem like a new missionary which makes me feel really good, because I know that I am far from where I would like to be. As you know right now we have a car to get around which is so nice, but in at the end of the month we have to get rid of our car and I am so not excited. We are going to have to ride the bus everywhere!! But it will be fun at the same time I guess. Can you believe that it is March!! I can't I have been in Canada for two weeks now and it is great. The weather has been way nice the last couple of days and I have been so thankful for the sunshine. The warmest it gets is about 10 degrees Celsius but its better than 0 or -1.
I decided yesterday that the Lord blesses us so much for doing His work. We go into some of the craziest houses with sick people, kids and who knows what else. And not to mention we shake so many peoples hands everyday its crazy! I am grateful for the Lord protecting me from sickness because I believe that he truly does.
The work here is so much fun! Its not always the easiest, ok it never is easy to go up to complete strangers and talk about religion, but I know like it says in Nephi 3:7 Lord provides a way. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon and the happiness and peace that is brings into my life. To be honest I don't know where I would be without out it. Really I am grateful for this beautiful gospel and how much joy it brings me. I know that the wind will always blow and things will be hard, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes trials and things so much easier to bear, because you know that you are never alone. Jesus Christ our Savior knows how we feel and he wants us to be happy. If we put our trust in Him we never have to fear.
Here in Halifax we have some pretty amazing investigators and I am so privileged to teach them. One is named Terry Evans I thing I mentioned him before, he is doing so well and we are going to once again commit him to baptism, Tonight!! I will tell you how it goes. We have two college students named Peter Hay and Steven which are doing really well also. I pray that we will be able to teach them well enough that they will be able to know this gospel is true. This gospel is amazing the more I learn about it the more it makes sense not only in my mind, but my heart also! Sorry you are all probably bored out of your mind with all of my churchy stuff!
Know that I am doing well and I am healthy and happy!! I love you all so much!! And I really do thank you for all your support. Its crazy being in a new country where I don't know where anything is or who anyone is, but I am loving it!!! I pray for you all every night and I hope that you have such a wonderful week!! I love you all!!!!

  1. Hello Sister! My husband and I spent three years in St. John's, Newfoundland, for his grad school, and absolutely loved it. It's such a beautiful part of the world, and the people are amazing. We got to see a little of Cape Breton and PEI on the way back.

    Best of luck!
