My Mission President Can Read Minds

This week was interviews.

Oh. My. Gosh.

I have never felt so vulnerable in my life. My mission president wrote down a list of strengths of mine and with each strength described a bit of my personality down to a T. He described my soul perfectly.
I've had this armored shell wrapped around me safely, and I've been snug and comfortable inside that shell. Within an hour of this interview, my shell shattered. I don't even know who I am anymore, holy cow. I am so mind blown. He told me things about myself I've never told another living human being. Only God knows certain things, and then president Marston spoke it out loud. I didn't even talk about the things I wanted to talk to him about, I don't think I was supposed to anyway. What a man. He is a man of God. It makes me slightly uncomfortable for him to pick me apart in minutes. I feel lighter though. So that was fun.

Thursday was MLC, and I got to see everyone again. I saw sister Morrison <3 and="" aren="" as="" back="" be="" best="" both="" changed="" close="" companion.="" companions="" cool="" drove="" easily="" eternities="" forever="" friends.="" friends="" gotten="" greatest="" grow="" have="" how="" i="" in="" included.="" it.="" it="" joking.="" last="" life="" lincoln.="" make="" mean="" mission="" missions="" mtc="" much="" my="" of="" on="" one="" our="" over="" p="" people="" really="" s="" say="" see="" serve="" serving="" she="" since="" singer="" sister="" so="" some="" started="" t="" the="" then="" they="" three="" to="" together.="" together="" transfers="" us="" ve="" we="" when="" will="" with="" you="" your="">

Friday was a good day as well, we had district meeting Friday morning and our district leader told us that president Marston was going to be coming in an attempt to make us get there on time. It worked, and we got ticked cause president wasn't actually coming. K elder Sampson I'll remember that one.

We see this less active named April Thornburg every week. We saw her Friday as well. She is one of the best people we are teaching right now, holy crap we have some of the best gospel conversations I've ever had on my mission with her. I love less actives. She has been trying her best to come back to church recently. It makes me so happy so see the people I'm teaching coming to church and making that effort. I love it.

Judy, one of our investigators, wants to see us twice a week now. I feel like she is getting closer and closer to baptism. She's amazing.
She's like a second mom to me. She is always asking if we need anything and is willing to give us her entire fridge of food if we need it. I love her. We are teaching her a lot out of the Book of Mormon and she loves it. She reads it on a regular basis and told us she knows it's true, and that the people who don't believe it's true are stupid.

We have not been able to meet with Tito for a while, but he is off of work all next week so we are going to try him every single day, gosh dangit. Whether he wants to or not.

We had a good Saturday too, I was asked to play the piano at a convert baptism and that was fun. I love playing for anything, and I'm glad people ask me to do that. We saw president Marston at the baptism and he showed us a picture of him and sister Marston holding up balloon people of themselves that sister smith had made on Wednesday while we were at interviews. I love my mission president. I love sister smith.
She taught us all how to make balloon animal monkeys.


Transfers are this week, we find out Saturday who is leaving. I have no idea what's going to happen. I'm always anxious transfer weeks.
It's awful, I hate how my life is controlled in six week periods. But it's amazing cause change is cool.

Missions are hard as heck, but are totally worth it. I love all of you. Thank you for all the support you give me. You're all amazing.
