September 2, 2013 Hi family! and Friends!!!!!!! How is everyone?!?! Wow this has been the craziest week of my mission! so up and down! but that’s how missions are! Prepares you for life! right?! :) haha anyway! We went grocery shopping one of the mornings at 7am and got locked in the mall! haha that was a super funny time! We met with AC! She is so amazing! she says we have changed her life and she told me she is thinking about baptism! (WHICH IS HUUUUUUGE) So crazy! So hopefully we will get her on date soon! we love her so so much! also F. has his baptism!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYY!!!!!! he is amazing and we love him a lot! he is so strong in the gospel, and such a special spirit! We found out we had to pass E. and M. :( which makes us sad because we love them so so much! we end up having to pass a lot of people we connect with :( but as long as someone is inviting them to come unto christ i am happy! :) We had new missionary training and it was really good! i learned how important it is to find joy in the journey! so i have been working on that! It's been very hard this week, everyone has been very down, and sad. But its a new week and i am ready for new opportunities!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yayyyy! We went on a tour with our relief society on Sat. We went to a museum called peranakan museum, a wheat grass farm, a fish farm, and another place! it was really cool! we got to meet two non-members and got to know the relief society (we are trying to get the members more involved in missionary work) speaking of which! CHALLENGE TIME!: i have learned the importance of ever member a missionary! so please invite people to learn about the gospel, bring referrals to the missionaries, help the missionaries! they can't do this without you!!!! please invite the little valley 6th ward to have each member be a missionary! you are promised to have the spirit more abundantly in your life! alright done with my soap box haha :) love you all so so much! anyway! We went to the Tadina family’s house for dinner last night!!!!!! sooo MAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the family who's son was companions with Kameron in the Philippines! they are the best and we love them so much! we had two invest. over there! It was really cool! sadly the elders in the area with us (elder Moore and Elder Rasmussen) are teaching them! thats okay! :) It was really fun! and their family are amazing missionaries!!!!!! So how is everyone?! Thank you for the prayers on behalf of our investigators! sadly R. did not stay in contact :( and we have to pass E. and M. :( so sad! but we are hoping to find more investigators in our area soon!!!!! yayay!!! also W. needs prayers right now, We had a very rough lesson with him. His cousin’s sister is telling him anti mormon stuff and so he is struggling! but i told him very strongly that we can't tell him whats true, and she cant. Only God can, and so he needs to pray to find his answer! So we are really praying that he is lead correctly! :) How fun you saw Sharlee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! look at her niece! can't believe it! i actually just wrote both of them! haha but they are being sent to Hurricane so they will get them someday i hope! :) also mom watch out i've sent something for you! :) It has been a pretty slow week! but i have really never felt closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I have been on my knees pleading so many times this week! just for strength, pure love, and the positive attitude to help me face my challenges head on! This mission has been the hardest thing i have gone through, but it is so worth it! i have never felt so much love for people, strength in my words, or been so filled with the spirit before! i love this work! I am really learning to find joy in the journey! any advice??? :) Life has been very good! I pray for all of you! Thank you for praying for Elder W. and his family and the missionaries here. It’s very much needed! We feel the prayers! I LOVE YOU ALL SO SO MUCH!!!!! i need more details about this wedding also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love you!!!! keep on keeping on! Love Sister Waldvogel O.W.L.E <3
