Sister Mickelson

1st week done!

Hello everyone! seems crazy that im already w week in to my mission! Just a quick reminder that you guys can send me emails throughout the week anytime you want! if you see a funny picture or have a funny story, you can always send emails! However, i will only be able to respond to your emails every Tuesday! make sense? i hope so!

This week has been a whirlwind i wrote everything down in my little book so that i didn't forget to talk about everything!

My district is awesome! i love all of the missionaries that Ive been paired with! all of the Elders in my district are going to the Denver Colorado South mission!! woot woot! to bad i just moved away from Denver! They are really going to love these Elders! They are so hard working! My companion names is Sister Mickelson (like Nickel, but with an M) and she is from glasgow Montana! I guess its a super small town of like 4000 people so thats kinda cool! haha it was funny to say im from Chicago because those are two completely different places! SHE IS THE BEST! we are super different but it makes it awesome because it helps us a lot in our teaching and in everyday life! she is super scheduled (shout out to Tristy Searle for preparing me for companion who likes to make lists) so it helps up be on time to mostly everything, we've found our selves getting lost a few times

There was one time where me and Sister Mickelson were walking down the hallway and i said "Hallelujah" for some reason and she looked at me dead serious and said "I. am. nineteen." We looked so confused for about a minute and then i realized that she thought i said "how old are you" okay maybe you actually had to be there to think it was funny. I take it back.

We have a really funny Elder in our district named Elder Gomez. I think he is so funny! he doesn't really say anything but he laughs at everything! so i took a video of him laughing so you guys can see what im talking about! Hes the best and we love him!!!

The work is going so good! Being a missionary is crazy because time here is so different! i feel like this week was sooooooo long but looking back it actually went by pretty fast and now we are getting new missionaries tomorrow! I hated it when everyone said "WELCOME TO THE MTC" the first day but now i cant wait to say that to the new missionaries! so that'll be something to look forward to!

We are teaching a lot! we've had two lessons this past week and we have another one tomorrow, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! So we've got a lot of studying and preparing to do! being a missionary is the best. There really is nothing like it. i find myself just being happy all the time, and being about to teach the gospel to people who are prepared and seeking for truth is the best feeling! I love reading and pondering my scriptures and looking for way to help my investigators better understand Christ and their purpose! It so amazing how easy it is to just forget yourself and focus on everyone around you! Im so grateful for this opportunity to serve!

Something funny to say, i was always told that my entertainment as a missionary would be scripture reading, devotionals, talking to people and church and before i was like "theres no way" and its SO true!! hahaha we had a devotional for the broadcast of President Nelsons birthday and all the missionaries were laughing at every little thing! I even caught myself laughing! its super weird but its the funniest thing!

Sorry that was such a long email but I had a lot i wanted to say! its been a long week but super rewarding! I love my calling! this is the Lords work! And there are people out in Oregon prepared for me to teach! until next week!

scripture i LOVE!
2nd Nephi 26: 33
33 For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he ainviteth them ball to ccome unto him and partake of his goodness; and he ddenieth none that come unto him, black and white, ebond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the fheathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.

Love you all!! dont forget to email your favorite missionary! (that's me)
Love Sister White
