First of all, thanks to all the birthday wishes! I'm a legal adult now!! woohoo!
Also, another tender mercy was that we were able to watch the YSA Face2Face event yesterday, and we got to hear from Elders Ballard and Oaks. AND I was sitting there at the beginning watching the opening musical number debating if I knew the singer. I was like "it's her--no it's not. Yes it is. Nope. It's definitely her." AND IT WAS!! Tiffany Law sang the opening musical number! It was so beautiful. So if someone could tell her that I saw her and that she did really well, that'd be great (thanks Shelley.) :) AND THEN they flashed through the audience as well and Elder Lundberg was there!! (He was my first district leader) It was so cool! And then another elder from our mission, Elder Jensen, was in the last musical number--the one second from the right.
Anyways, thanks for letting me just say that really quick. Other than that the Stake Primary President and a member of the High Council came and spoke yesterday and the High Counselor said that "We're not too far from heaven, it's the distance to heaven is from our knees to the floor." And I really liked that because it also just fits in with the theme of this week which is gratitude. Also, they are coming out with the new Christmas video on Friday, so give that a quick watch--it's super good.
Other than that we've had a lot of fun this week doing missionary things. It's hard, but hasn't it always been hard?? Hahah!! I love being a missionary and love the things that are happening all around me. It's hard to control our circumstances, but it's easy to control our attitude.
Happy Thanksgiving and eat some turkey for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
