September 29: The question really is... Am I a ginger or not?

That has been a topic of conversation in my zone these past couple of transfers.

But really.

I do not believe I am a ginger.

I have strawberry blonde hair. And freckles. 

That is not ginger status.


Pretty epic week. Remind me to tell you one day why. 

So the musical fireside was last night and an elder from my mission, Elder Fugate, and I performed a song together. It is called "I Turn to You." And it was a song I started writing when I was like 14 years old. I had forgotten about it until a couple of weeks ago and then I finished it. Elder Fugate helped me put it all together and he played the gui-tar and also sang with me.

It was so sweet, my companion's parents sent a lei and so I wore that when I performed. 

Some other random things we did were--

Clean a chicken coop

Actually that's the only other random thing I can think of.

I can't believe I already have my ticket home. That is really odd to me. Man. I'm gonna miss this life like no other. I got a little bit trunky as I watched Women's Conference and saw all the little girls holding their mamas hands. And I thought of you Mom. And how much I miss you. And then I laughed because I knew you had the same thought. (Well that is...IF you watched Women's conference yet...I just realized you were at the beach....haha) It truly was a great conference and my spirit was fed.

I am so excited for General Conference this weekend! I love conference, especially as a missionary. You just eat up every word the speakers share. 

I am coming to really understand what it means to receive revelation through the scriptures, more specifically, the Book of Mormon. 

The other night I was pleading with the Lord. I needed to know that He heard me. I knew that He did, but I needed the comfort and reassurance that He heard me that very second. After my prayer, I had the thought "Turn to Mosiah 3:4."

This is what is says
For the Lord hath heard thy prayers, and hath judged of thyrighteousness, and hath sent me to declare unto thee that thou mayest rejoice; and that thou mayest declare unto thy people, that they may also be filled with joy.

So cool. I love revelation. I know that God hears and ANSWERS our prayers-- in His timing and in His way.

Beautiful, beautiful stuff.

Love yall!!!
