I Can't Sleep So I Typed My Email Early

Ok so I accidentally sent part of my email last night, totally did not mean to. Sorry. Most of you were asleep anyway.

Ok this week was actually pretty good! Ups and downs, as usual. Sister wall and are preparing for the next transfer by working as hard as possible. We managed to see several people we have been trying to contact for MONTHS. It's the greatest when you are able to teach an investigator who you haven't seen since your first week in an area, just saying.

We saw a ton of older people this week. There is this 97 year old lady we see occasionally, and her name is Melba. She is a firecracker. She is so funny and sarcastic, and her hearing is perfect. She can still get up and walk around all on her own. She has great health. She plans on living until she is 100. She has the strongest testimony of the gospel I have ever seen in someone. I love her so much. It seems like in each of my areas there has been a senior citizen who I have gotten close to. Melba is my hero and I wanna be like her when I am old.
There is another older sister in the ward we see every week, Sister Winn. I think she's 95. Anyway, she's going blind so we go over to her house and read the ensign with her. We also sings hymns to her and I play the piano for her.
Don't forget the widows in your area. They are amazing and have the greatest stories to tell. Go take them food and listen to their lives.

We were able to start teaching Danielle the new member lessons. She is doing so well. She has started to recognize the Holy Ghost in her life. She told us that she feels different now, and it's a good different. She is awesome. I love her.

Sister wall and I have been accidentally matching outfits almost every day this week. Our companionship unity is through the roof. I'm gonna miss her so much.

Missionary work is awesome, let me tell you. I love being able to preach the gospel to everyone. I encourage all of you to find joy in the spirit of missionary work. Just be nice to people. Do what the savior would do, and that is love everyone.

I am so glad I am a missionary in the California Roseville mission.
This is the greatest mission in the world, and I have the greatest mission president ever. Hands down. We win. Heavenly Father knew I needed to be here, and I received my own confirmation this week that this is where I need to be at this point in my life.

Transfers are hard, especially when people you love go home. But, I know that these missionaries  were in my life for a reason. I'm gonna miss them and I will enjoy this last week with some of them.

I love you all and I am so grateful for my savior. He is my redeemer.
He loves me personally, just as he loves each and every one of you.

Also it's Harry potters birthday today (the 31st).

I'm so grateful for all of you, you raise me up *cue josh groban*
