14 May 2012

first of all, it's preparation day and in the hand book it says that you are to write your family every Preparation day.

the St. John's branch is nice, I'm very excited to be working here. it was interesting/ cool because yesterday while I was watching President Simpson speak to and interact with the members of the branch I realized that Newfoundland must be his favorite place (because I had never seen him be so warm in the other branches I've served in). this caused me to realize that President would only send missionaries he trusted to Newfoundland, to serve in a place he loves so much. THEN I thought of how much the Lord loves this place, and that HE chose me to serve here! I am so honored to be serving in Newfoundland! I've fallen more and more in love with the place every minute.
    saying goodbye to the Simpsons yesterday was so hard! I cried! (actally I've about five time throughout this week over the fact that the Simpsons are leaving) but I got a big hug from President! it was bored line awkward  but it was the best! there have been so many times I've wanted to hug him! I'm so grateful to have been able to serve with him! I could go on and on... but now I understand what Kenny talks to positively about President McKonckie or Jayson about President Joyce! it truly is a special relationship between Mission President and Missionary.
     I was so happy I got to see Eveyln (I still can't spell her name) yesterday! yeah for Skype!

    love you! thanks for writing!
