This week was pretty great because I got to talk to my family! We ended up talking for like two hours but it seemed like 15 minutes. It's all good, less than 9 months and i get to see them and for that I am eternally grateful :) the gospel of Jesus Christ really is centered on helping families be happier and eternal. I know from experience that as we live the principles of the gospel we are happier. As we live them as a family, we are inseparable. I love my family with all my heart and I am so grateful to have them for all eternity. As I have had time to reflect on why I am on my mission, my thoughts turn back to my family. I know I am here because of my family. They helped me have the testimony I have today and have helped me overcome my trials. I know this gospel blesses families and as a missionary, I get to help strengthen families in every area in which I serve. It is such a great responsibility and blessing.
This week we also got to go and see some adorable baby puppies, I use baby and puppies because they are like two weeks old! They're so cute! I know that the lord blesses us with little things in life, like a chubby human baby or a teeny pup, to brig us joy. (See 2 Nephi 2:25).
This church is true, I know it because I feel the Holy Ghost testify to me every day. I love you all and thank you for your prayers and thoughts! :)
