Writing weekly emails. . . .

I am really sorry but I honestly just don't have the energy to write a huge email this week haha. Also I don't really have too much time.... but ill try.
Not much happened, but we did have to make a last minute trip to Conyers to fix our car because it was recalled this week. So I guess that was exciting. But it was really unproductive and kind of threw off the rest of the week.

Most exciting things:
-SHENELLE IS GETTING BAPTIZED THIS WEEKEND! Shes all ready to go and we are so pumped for her.
-We had an awesome awesome AWESOME lesson with john this week! Teaching John has been very slow.. we just teach him simply, almost like a primary lesson haha. But this week we had a BREAKTHROUGH. We brought over our awesome, go-to team up Sister Austin and the spirit was just so so so strong. We didn't know it at the time, but our team-up has a son who really struggles to read, just like John and so they got to have a tender moment talking about how reading the scriptures came easier to him as he read more and more. And it was so cool because John has officially started to understand how much God loves him and how the scriptures are helping him. Sorry this isn't explained very well but just know that it was awesome and John is my best friend.
-Got to eat Chick-Fil-A TWICE this week. Georgia Chick-Fil-A is the best Chick-Fil-A.
-I lived my Georgia dream of driving on Highway 20, just like that one Zac Brown Band song. SO EXCITING
-Shenelle threw cake in my face for her birthday. It made me feel like I was back at Oakcrest haha.
-Sister Russell and I will be singing in church next sunday. Send major prayers my way please.
-One of the members gave me a Mockingjay pin so I've been rocking that all week.

Despite the lack of emotion in this email, I just feel so overwhelmed with love and gratitude for what my mission has given me. In just 4 months, I've seen myself progress in ways I never thought I would, my family has grown closer, their testimonies have been strengthened, and I have just an overall understanding of the love God has for me, the people of Georgia and the people of the world in general. He really is so mindful of each of us and our situations and wants to bless us so much! Its so hard for me to put into words but just know that my heart is so full today. I LOVE YOU ALL!
