●seeing a missionary family here open a letter from their missionary. it was fun but weird to be on the other end of things! hopefully my family gets that excited for my letters :)

the fly story- so were sitting in a lesson
with one of my favorite investigators (shhh) and her uncle. things are great
but there was this fly… i swatted it away but then it came back-- and flew down
my shirt! i couldn’t do anything about it. i just tried to awkwardly move
around but i could feel it. ahhhh! it was horrible! i couldn’t even laugh at
myself! i had to keep the spirit and what not. finally like 20 minutes later it
flew out. then i couldn’t even be happy! i had to keep a straight face (ish)
the whole time! oh my goodness. it was horrrrrrible. and i wasn’t quite sure it
flew out and that was the longest lesson i think we’ve ever had... so i just
sat there for almost 2 hours hoping i was just being paranoid. Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!
the recent convert to the church on far left provided the horse & "buggy" experience
