So, I’m totally going to cheat today and send one email to everyone, because I don’t have any time today! I’m sooo sorry! We ended up actually doing something fun though for p-day, so I’m sorry.
And dad, I feel the struggle of finding stuff to write about... I feel like so many weeks I just write the same thing over and over. But I really do cherish your emails, and am so grateful you email every week!
This was a good week. We had the amazing opportunity to have a mission conference with Elder Uceda of the Presidency of the Seventy. It was so good! He continually emphasized teaching by the spirit, and doing more, talking less. He also stressed the importance of praying from the heart, and also reading the scriptures with your heart. It was super amazing to hear his insight, and to take a minute to really ponder the way I pray, and to recommit to ensuring that each prayer is a real conversation with my Father. Since then, I have felt my prayers become far more meaningful and my relationship deepen with my Lord.
Sis Walker is amazing. We had a really good conversation the other day, and since then, I feel like a weight I didn’t know I was carrying is off my shoulders. I feel happier and more determined in the work than I have in weeks, and am so excited to finish like a champion, with all my effort, strong and fast. That being said, I’m also excited to be home to help with projects and do a list of other things I’ve been compiling!
I can’t believe y’all are still getting snow! It’s 70 degrees and sunny today! But it was RAINING all week. Seriously, a downpour every day. I have some cool pictures (I think) and will send them.
Lol with the curling... what the?! I didn’t know y’all had gotten into that... but it sounds fun. And I wish I could have watched these Olympics. I love winter Olympics. But, that’s life. It’s a small sacrifice!
Sorry I’m out of time. I love y’all soooo much! Have an amazing week.
All my love,
Sister Erika Marks
