Sorry, this is a short email this week, because we are headed to the beach as a zone for Pday today :)
This week we had a lot of opportunities to SERVE, and I loved it. Service just makes me so happy :)
On Tuesday and on Thursday we spent 4 hours helping a family whose house burned :( It was so sad... they are members and have 4 young children. The house was still standing, but everything inside was destroyed. President Douglas gave the whole zone specific permission to go and help the family 2 different days this week. I have never felt more like the ARMY of Helaman as the 22 of us missionaries worked in complete unity and strength to empty everything out of her house and help with all of the repairs. Our biggest task was not just to rebuild the house... but to rebuild the spirits of this family. They were destroyed on the inside, too. As we worked, we sang... we laughed... we told stories... we sang some more... we did everything to bring the Spirit back into this burned down home. And it worked :) When we left the first day, the family was starting to smile again - and at least they weren't crying. When we left the second day - they were singing and laughing with us :) Service changes lives. It changes spirits. And it changes hearts :)
I love being a missionary and serving families in EVERY way possible!!
The Church is true!!!
