My wonderful mamma,
I just love you 🙂 In case you didn´t know haha 🙂 They do celebrate Valentines day here, but it is more for the couples that do it haha it is not broadcasted the way it is in America. That is pretty great with the fundraiser for Scouts xD Dad can get alot of baseball caps!! Do you have a picture of the cap? That is so insane about William!!!! The first thing that came to mind was the Huggies slogan “I´m a big kid now!” XD His teeth are just trying to be big kid teeth a little bit too early haha xD That is so sad that he had to get his tooth pulled, but I mean, it sounded like it needed to come out!! I am kind of curious about how the tooth looks haha and I love how the one thing he wants to eat after his tooth getting pulled out is Dominos xD That is so great XD That sounds really cool about the emergency preparedness stuff!!! If you have any pictures, please send them!! That is so cool and I bet a great experience!! I just want to say that I love you and dad!! I am so happy that he was able to give you a Valentines day to remember 🙂 I cannot wait for the day that my future husband does stuff like that for me 🙂 Which is awkwardly pretty soon… I turn 20 in like 2ish months… I honestly never thought I would ever get to this age!! It always seemed so far away and here it is… crazy… And yea.. about David.. I put his name in the Temple and I pray for him that he is able to wake up and understand that she is not his future wife and that he can do so much better. I just hope that he understands that marriage is till the end, not when you are just done with the person.. Sometimes I just feel bad for the way everything is turning out for him, but then I remember that he is the one who chose that life and made those choices to get him there. It just makes me sad to think that he chose the world over God, but I pray for the day when he turns back to God and chooses Him.
Everything here is pretty good!! I am finally rid of these bed bugs!! So I no longer wrap myself up in a burrito of blankets to keep me from touching my mattress!! I can sleep freely!! Wooh!!!! Transfer calls are this Saturday and I am kind of scared because I am most definitely getting transferred (at least, it would be a surprise if I stayed haha), and I don´t know where I will be sent and who my companion will be.. I just need a companion that is amazing in German and will talk with me 24/7 in German cause honestly I feel like that is what I need to really push me in this language to really master it. I have been praying to have a German companion because you WILL only speak German with them haha I have progressed a little bit with German, from what I can tell.. Sister Hancock tells me that I am alot better than before and that I have progressed alot, which is nice to hear. We have an investigator, Semi, who is really progressing towards baptism!! He is so good 🙂 We are so happy with how much he is progressing!!! It is trying so hard to be spring here xD It is like it can´t decide if it wants to stay winter or be spring XD It was warm for a while, and then it snowed like 2 days ago, and today it is like spring! Like I am currently in flats and have on no tights or leggings!! LIKE WHAT?!?! It´s February xD I don´t understand weather xD We have seen these flowers that are called “snowdrop flowers” and they are the first sign of spring!! They are super duper pretty!! I love them so much!!
My scripture thought of the week is this: I was reading in 1 Nephi this week, and I was reading about them getting the plates from Laban. Sariah´s reaction to the whole situation really struck me. I immedietly thought about our Heavenly Mother and how she felt when we were sent here to the Earth. I bet that she was scared, just like Sariah, that we would never return to her. It was such an interesting thought.. We always think about the things that we need to do in order to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again, but what about Heavenly Mother? I have started thinking about the things that I would need to do in order to live with our Heavenly Mother again, and interestingly it is the same things! Just like I have the desire to return to you, shouldn´t I also have the desire to return to my Heavenly Mother? Alot of the time, we only talk about desiring to return to God and Jesus Christ, but what about your Mother? It just has been on my mind this week, and I thought it was really cool 🙂
I love you so much and I am so grateful for all that you have done for me and that I am able to be here on my Mission!! Thank you so much!! Have a wonderful week!!
