I have to go pack. I’ll probably send a long one later. I just wanted to say hi and that I love you!
I’m going to hood river!!!!!!!!!! It’s going to be way good. Hermana Porter served there and she likes talking about it. Apparently there
are just a lot of fruit orchards and people give you fruit a lot which I am pretty excited about. It has been sad to say bye to my friends
here who are in the branch and who we are teaching, but at the same time I have been here for a looooong time and I’m ready for some
change. The other sad thing is I probably just have to leave my basil plant.
We’ve been teaching M and she’s totally gunna be ready to get baptized on the 28th! She still really likes the virgin Guadalupe and
always finds a way to bring her up during gospel principles and we just like smile at her and nod and hope the teacher just does the
same. She is changing a lot though and just is so much happier now. We are so excited for her and when she was talking about getting
confirmed and the Holy Ghost she was like can they also say this name and another name. And we are like well it’s just for you! She wants
her other family members to feel the same joy that she is and we told her that is what the temple is for!! She took a picture with us and we
both just look like giants compared to her.
We talked to a guy trying to unicycle and Hermana porter convinced me to try. The guy doesn’t look that impressed or interetsted hahha
We had some lessons with R! He has so so sooooo many just super profound questions that are somewhat difficult to answer cause we
don’t want to confuse him too much. But he just loves learning. Last lesson we wanted to talk about the plan of salvation and just be
normal and start with our life before earth but then he asked a question about the resurrection so it just got crazy and we hope he is
not super lost now. He always gives us a bottle of water and then I was like thanks I love water! And when we were leaving he gave me 3
more hahaha. Anyways, he is still really cool and smart
We taught some other people too. Also Randal Ridd who is in the young men general presidency came on Saturday and spoke to us. That was neat
and inspiring! He focused on our doing everything with real intent.
I have loved serving here with sister porter. I am also done with the Book of Mormon. 2 more chapters. Right now my favorite thing about the
Book of Mormon is just when it mentions the geography and stuff of the Americas. Like the history is just so interesting and how the book ends
up in New York. Those people covered a lot of area and had a ton of wars. But I love the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. I know
that god loves us and he is our father in heaven. I am so blessed to have an amazing father on earth who is such a good example of our
father in heaven. I love you!!! Happy Father’s Day!!!!!!!
