I loved seeing pictures from the wedding, they look so happy. What a special day for everyone. You were in my thoughts a lot that day! It was a special day for me. I felt a lot of comfort and peace that day, so it was good.
Our week was great! Our area is seriously booming. I cannot even tell you the blessings and miracles that we are able to see everyday. But it really was a week full of blessings for me. This transfer is really hard. But my testimony has grown so, so much. I know that there is a huge reason that I have been given harder assignments. I took a step back to focus on the progress I have been able to make within the last few weeks. Something that I have noticed in myself is how my relationship with my Father in Heaven has developed and grown so strong. I have always prayed and always had faith, of course....but never like this. I have never prayed like this. And coming with those prayers is the love and blessings the He has in store for me. I have literally felt Him by my side every day. I think that is why I was supposed to come on a mission. Because I was supposed to learn how to rely on Him in my times of need. The testimony that has grown in me is unparallelled. I can look at people here and really tell them with my heart that I know these things.
Biggest tender mercy of the week, J. went to the temple :) And he loved it! And he passed the Sacrament yesterday!!! I felt like a proud mother watching him. I was so worried he would have gone the wrong way, or forgotten someone, but he did soooo good! It brought such an immense joy to my heart. I can't even explain the feeling! I loved it.
I know this email is a bit short, my thoughts are everywhere. I love it here. I am grateful for the challenges that make me grow! I am grateful that I am learning how to love others. I am grateful for the miracles. I am grateful for this perfect Gospel. I am grateful for my amazing, amazing family! And most of all I am grateful for my Father in Heaven that guides me every day and has a way of showing his immense love. I love this work and all the comes with it! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Make sure that you look for someone else in need this week, they're always there. I love you so much :)
Love, Hermana Michelle
