First P-day (letter that she mailed home)

Sorry for the one letter, and the not very good email. Sorry Dad for making you worried,but don't worry I'm doing good! I have learned so much and have grown incredibly! We have something scheduled every second of the day pretty much. It is such an amazing spiritual experience here! So much I have learned, I don't even know where to start. But one of the biggest things is just how important the Book of Mormon, prayer, and the Holy Ghost are in true conversion. I have always know this but it has really been a vital part. And when investigators are struggling with something such as the Word of Wisdom or something they just need to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it with real intent(meaning they are willing to act upon the answer they will receive) and after doing those two things they will receive an answer. I'm so grateful for the Holy Ghost, it is a huge part of the mission! It will and does prompt you to do and say things that you wouldn't be able to do on your own. Not only that, but it confirms and comforts you. It is such an amazing gift that the Lord has blessed us with. I have just been so full of gratitude for it. I have the deepest love for my Savior and this Gospel and the Book of Mormon. I have such a love for it. I have deepened my understanding of the Gospel by studying these simple and precious truths. This has been an amazing experience even though it is so hard and I know it will get harder but will only get better. I love this Gospel and my Savior with all my heart and I am so grateful to have been raised in such an amazing family with the Priesthood in the our home and the truths of the Gospel guiding us. I really wish I could talk to you guys because with the short amount of time it is so hard to really express my feelings and my experiences. Thank you for all the letters I loved them so much! Today I got to go to the temple which was amazing! I Love the temple and have a testimony that it is the house of the Lord. The temple here, just like all the others, is gorgeous! Since today was P-day we went to the store. All I needed was razors because I forgot mine and I have just been shaving with the little razor heads. Haha. But it was neat. Even though everyone speaks English its a different culture. They drive on the opposite side of the rode and use different money so it can be a bit confusing. But it is awesome I love it. We also went to the Lds book store and a bunch of the English and the Denmark missionaries bought a ton of root beer because they love it and I guess it is kinda rare and you can only get it at the Lds bookstores. Well, love you guys so much. Hope you know that! I love it here too!
