I'm so happy to hear y’all got back from Oregon safely, I can't imagine that drive taking so long! It's so weird to think that Garrett will be graduating so soon, that's probably even weirder for you! As far as the Oregon trips go, you can feel free to take me next year when I'm home. J
I'm sorry I'm going to keep it short today, there's not really too much to write about. The Law of chastity lesson went well with Denise and John, so it looks like we're on the right track! I'm excited for them.
This week we did meet a ton of awesome people! We now have a few families we're teaching! If everything pans out, you'll hear more about them next week. Right now though, it's still too early to tell.
And guess what! We got snow on Friday! I have some pictures I'll send. I loved it sooo much! Then on Saturday it was absolutely gorgeous. About 40 degrees, totally sunny, and a bit of snow hiding in the shadows. We went tracting that morning, and I couldn't wipe the smile off my face! The snow was a little late for Christmas, but beautiful nonetheless.
Anyway, I love Alma 26. It's when Ammon is rejoicing in God, and I just love the joy that Ammon feels. It's totally how I feel as a missionary. Even when days are hard, there is so much joy to have in God and the gospel. I encourage you to read it. It really is one of those chapters that just makes your soul want to sing.
I love you so much!! ❤❄
