this week has been slow again but it was a great one as well it seems that the closer to the end it comes the faster it goes! time is fling by really quickly! but it is going great! i love serving the lord despite all my challenges! and yes i have a lot of them! but being out here on a mission i have truly learned to work with them! Yesterday was our thanksgiving dinner and our mission president invited us all up the the mission home and the mission president gave a few min talk on gratitude and love and how there interrelated it was awesome and also we were hanging out at the mission home and just being thankful for things! and i was just wondering around and my A.D.D kicked in and i was just wandering around not really knowing what to do and it looked as though i was looking for something and i walked up to a senior sister and the mission presidents wife and they asked what i was looking for and i told them nothing its just the A.D.D kickin in with to many people around and nothing for me to really do and so they gave me a quiet place and a book to read for a few min and it helped for a while then later i could not sit still untill i grabed a pillow and held it in my lap! and listined to a story that the mission Presidents friend was sharing! its amazing how the lord works! also on sunday the Mission President came to church with us and it was totally inspired i love this gospel and how it truly changes people we got the branch all set up to rebuild the branch so that it wont close down! i love this branch way to much to see it go under! i truly love this gospel! i know that this church is true and that god Lives and loves us! i am so thankful for you all and the wonderful influence you are to me!

I believe the lord is trying to teach us all a lesson the missionaries and expecally the members! to try our faith! its hard but I know the lord is in it! I truly do love this work and I know that the lord will bless us I happened to glance threw the noember ensign and one thing that stood out to me was a talk from the general womens meeting it was talking about how we think that God is waiting to bless us and all we need to do is obey but in reality its more like God is continually raining blessings on us and we are holding an umbrella over us because of fear and sin and things!
any ways the hardest thing everyone knows for me is paperwork but that's okay as I have been continually trying my best the lord will and does help us! yes I get terribly Frustrated! every time that happens I remember back to when I was doing homework and I would get to the point of crying because I couldn't do it and then all of a sudden it would click! and I would finish it but what I have learned is right before I get to that point of crying I say a prayer and I am able to get threw it much easier and I learn exactly what the lord wanted me to learn! I guess that's why he gave us weaknesses so that we may be humble and rely on him a lot more than we do! so as we pray and study the scriptures daily we will be a happy and delightsome people!
on the other hand if we don't do that then the lord will bind our toungs so that we cannot speak ind that is terably frusterating! it doesn't help not being able to speak properly! I just need to think about what I am saying before I say it and that takes a long time but if we trust in the lord and study the gospel and treasure up in our minds continually the words of life then it will be given you in the very hour yea in the very moment that which will be mended to every soul! I now that is true! and I just quoted that because I am not sure ware exactly in d&c it is but I know it is there! I love you all and I hope everything goes great with the play and such!
