To my loved ones far away,
Life is good in Pellissippi! We are really blessed right now! There are still a lot of things to work on and people to help progress, but the Lord has been blessing us! Thank you so much for your prayers-- I really do feel strengthened from them.
I went on exchanges with Sister Benge this week. It was a lot of fun! I stayed in our area and Sis Benge came over here. Of course things fell through on our beautifully planned out day, but that always happens. We were still able to feel the Spirit and work hard together! We had some good bonding times :) We got a member to drive us over there because we didn't have a ton of miles, but Sister Lee accidentally took the other sisters car keys so we had to drive all the way back and give them back. In our hurry to get out the door, we forgot the GPS and were so lost. Even with the sisters on the phone, we still kept getting lost. It was pretty crazy. We blew too many miles to say the least!
We also had Zone Training Meeting this week and we were involved in a lot of the meeting. It's neat to be involved and see the preparation that goes into it. I think we all learned a lot about finding and felt the spirit. Afterwards, we got to watch all of Meet the Mormons! It was really good! If you don't want to watch it in the theaters, it will be on Netflix and you tube after it's done playing in theaters.
This week I have really seen how Heavenly Father answers our prayers and our fasts. I know that Heavenly Father doesn't give up on any of his children and is always preparing people to be ready for the gospel. I know that He loves us and is ready and anxious to bless us. I loved President Uchtdorf's analogy of God pouring out blessings on us, but sometimes we put up umbrella's that prevent us from feeling of His love. So let us be obedient to his commandments that lead to happiness and feel of His love pouring down on us always!
