I don't know why. But for some reason the e-mails I received from Mama, Papa and Marie have been the greatest e-mails I have received my whole mission...They were the only ones in my inbox this week. And they were so packed with comfort and things that just made me laugh! I have not been getting much mail these days, which surprisingly, has been easy to deal with. Because I am coming to understand that you don't always need proof of love to know that it exists. I know that many people are not writing, but they sure are praying! Because I KNOW that I wouldn't be able to do any of the things that I am able to do on the daily without those precious and much needed prayers, MY GOODNESS! I can feel the love everyday and yes, letters and reassurance that everybody is still alive is wonderful to receive via mail and e-mail, but they are not 100% needed.

I can't believe how well the Lord takes care of His missionaries. I have been soo soo blessed out here and feel such a change occurring in myself. I can't even believe that I've already been gone for 6 months this next week. Time has really zoomed by!

This past week we had the traveling sisters stay with us for 3 days! Their names are Sister Miller and Sister Tuddenham. One is from Jerome, Idaho and the other from Logan, Utah. Sister Miller only has 5 weeks left in the mission and is the best stinkin missionary! She is super tall and super fantastic. She goes to BYU-I on a full ride scholarship and was valedictorian at her high school. And Sister T, is an Elementary Ed. Major who goes to Utah State. She was Sister Real's companion in the MTC. So both her and Sister Real go home in August. But while they were here we went on splits! Which was so fun. Basically, Sister Miller and I went out teaching for a whole day together and Sister Real went with Sister T for a whole day and then we switched off the next day. This weekend was total bliss. I loved having them here!!!

But transfers are this coming week. I have a really good feeling that Sister Real will be transferred and I will stay in Kirtland with a new companion. There is even a chance that I could get one of the new missionaries coming in :D I hope!!!

But ok, my time is about to run out. I have 1 min left lol...But Sister Real is sick today. SO we will stay home all P-day which means I will write to yous guys with all of the extra time that I will have today :):):)

Love you all so so sooooooo much more than I did when I lived with you ;) hahahahah!!! Talk to you next week :)
