Mummy and Daddy
Remember how the weather here is absolutely BONKERS!!!! Today we're are experiencing "gale force winds" and Sister Lamb and I nearly got blown into traffic! I've seen more wind, rain, and snow than I have in my whole life. Everyone is talking about it being the end of the world!!!! well....with this wind....maybe it is :D hahahah
AH the exchange..... My new companion is Sister Caroline Lamb She's from Missouri, loves to play all sorts of sports. Her favorite color is black, but if she had to pick one, it'd be some sort of greenish tinge. Jello is not her favorite. She loves learning and analyzing political situations, and if she had to eat anything she'd eat shells and cheese, popcorn, and sour cream and onion crisps. She loves BYU and the Provo experience, she's studying Health education, and is excited to go back and finish her education.
:D Well at this current moment I am in Wharfe Valley! My mailing address is the mission office. I am literally down the street from it. No one knows our proper address. :D I get to spend all my micro managed time with the Assistants to the President :D lucky me. yay! My area covers 5 main little villages Darlington, Ilkley, Menston, Otley, and Yeadon. The tiniest little streets you've ever seen ever! hahahah barely enough room for one car...let alone two. :D I have a car, a nice little house, heating that works properly. I'm near the mission office for supplies and the mission home for meals/ firesides, AND the branch is AMAZING!!!! People welcomed me with open arms and sloppy old lady smooches :D heh heh AND they kept asking me if I needed any help with any investigators... it's nice that I don't have to pull nails for that :D Everyone I talk to tells me that Wharfe Valley is "Mission Heaven" heh heh that's what I'm talking about!
We experienced some miracles this week! We met with this couple, Joyce and Mick....husband and wife for seventeen years. Mick is massively tatooed. He has a little space that his eyes peer through all the ink! :D He's been through a lot! he has major depression issues....both of them do really....Joyce has a tumor on her face and never wants to get out of bed, but they are both the sweetest people ever. They protect each other and they feel like they're at a turning point in their lives. They've been invited to church MULTIPLE times, but never came because they were afraid that people would judge them. I met them this week and we had an amazing lesson with them. The atmosphere was different and Mick bawled through the whole thing, saying," I feel this love around me...it's weird...it's different than I've ever felt before!" BAM! MIRACLE! They came to fast and testimony meeting! BAM! MIRACLE! AND they both cried through the whole thing! BAM! MIRACLE!
We have some amazing investigators, Amanda and John. Their 10 year old son Tyler got baptized last week and his parents are following in his footsteps! Amanda and John prayed for help with the word of wisdom and John says, " it's like I never had a drink before in my life! no withdrawls! nothing!" BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT! they came to the mission home fireside!!!! I've never been able to go to one of those before!!!!1 Cake plus the spirit....what is better than that ay? I spent all my time shoved on the stairs...too many people crammed into that little house....and this toddler kept going up and down...up and down...up and down said stairs....BOY! PARK IT! HAHAHAH.
oooh got to go! i love you so much! thanks for everything xoxoxo
your Sister White
