I can't believe that Madeleine comes home today!! That's so exciting! I'm sad that I can't be there to see her come home, but I know you will tell me all about it and send me plenty of pictures. I know she must be going crazy right now. It's hard to leave something you have been doing every single day and then go back to an old life. Madeleine, I love you and I'm so proud of you! One more year and then I will join y'all! But as for our week, we had a really good one. We were able to find some really cool new people to teach. One guy said that we were "glowing" at Walmart, and that even though he couldnt see us, he knew exactly where we were at cause we glowed through the aisles. Kinda weird, but really cool because he said that something told him to come talk to us. So, we were able to testify to him that that was the Holy Ghost telling him that we have something that he needs. We had such a sweet lesson with him. He has had a real rough life, he has made a lot of bad decisions, but is ready to change and said that he has finally found God. He even said that this Mormon thing is what he needs. He even came to church! We are excited to see what happens with him. Alex. Alicia, their son Zackary and Chelsie all came to church as well! It was a great day at church. They are all progressing, but at different stages. We want them to go through this together as a family. But first we need to help them become an official family by getting married. Alex is still hesitant, but we are hoping that seeing Alicia make these changes will help him see her as a wife. Chelsie is so awesome, she is really sincere and wants to change a lot of things in her life, and her actions are reflected on that desire to change. A lot of really good things are happening here and I feel blessed to be a part of it! This Branch is starting to get the feel of missionary work and we hope to get members more involved than they have been in the past. I have learned a lot about myself while serving a mission. My strengths, my weaknesses, the things that bug me the most, and the things that I enjoy doing and make me happy. But most importantly I've learned that we have a loving Heavenly Father that is watchful over all of us. He knows whats best, and allows others to help us get through difficulties that we all have. We are never left a lone.
