Hello Family!Sounds like an exciting week....hey I heard the Oscars were last night, did you watch them? Ok I will tell you about my week now.
Wow that whole paragraph was about one day. The rest of the week was good though. We got to see Paul and do a section out of his Book of Mormon study guide with him which he loves. He told us he's only reading the Book of Mormon right now and we are like phew because lately he's been reading some pretty weird stuff...We have been able to spend a lot of time with the members this week as well. I think I say this every week but they are all so cool! I love serving out here because Lots of the members are converts and its amazing to hear their stories. We also had dinner on Sunday with a family who's son gets home from his mission the same day I get home. They were pretty chill about him coming home but I think they were super pumped inside so I bet that is kind of what you guys are like.
Can't really believe that I'm about to start my last full week as a missionary here. This has gone by too fast yet, I feel that I've been away from home for a long time. The thing is, I have found home out here in New York and I am sad to leave it. I never thought somewhere so far away could feel like home but it does. There are things about Utah I have missed but there are so many things about New York I will miss. I love the people out here, the funny small towns, the tight-knit wards, and the work I get to participate in as a missionary. I will admit, I'm kind of scared to come home and face the reality of moving on with life. Missionary life is so fulfilling and your purpose is set in stone and you know what you are supposed to do. I'm glad I came out here though because what it has made me will really benefit me for the rest of my life. Missionary work has shown me what should be most important and what kind of life I want to lead. I will see you all soon. Thanks for the prayers and please keep them coming!
