Can I just tell you it is super hard for me to think about what to write every week?? haha Every day is just chuck full of stuff! I almost feel like I am going insane with everything that's going on right now haha we may or may not have bed bugs? but we think we have it under control now! (hopefully...:)) so last week was great!! We were able to meet with Omarla and talked with Kiwana for a second but no real progress made there.. yet!! They have been very busy and we have as well so it will work out!! So I don't know if I have told you about Aaliyah but she is a very special spirit! She is 11 years old and has had her fair share of trials in life. She has come to church with a member the past few weeks and last week she said she wanted to be baptized! What?! We talked with her last week and when she saw us at the door she hurry and grabbed her book of mormon and then came outside with a HUGE grin on her face! She is super awesome!! We still have to talk with her parents about everything because they really like the church and like her going and stuff but they are moving to Scotland in a month so we are just praying it will all work out before they move!!! We are going to be getting Ipad Mini's next month so we are hoping we can keep in contact with her using skype and stuff when she moves! Missionary work is being hastened so quickly. It's amazing. And it's all though the tender mercies of the Lord! Isn't He just awesome?! We have started volunteering at the hospital every week and this time our "activity" was reading the newspaper to the patients! haha sorry but I just don't like hearing all the sad things going on in the world! It's depressing! And yet I know without a doubt Heavenly Father is in control.We just need to trust Him!!! And talk about trusting him... So yesterday we helped out our dear Sister Mello-cann and also had dinner with the Smith family. Sister Smith and Sister Mello-cann are both from the Philippines!! They are the craziest, sweetest, purest, most loving people i know!!!! Seriously I just love them so much. I have never laughed harder and ate more in the past 24 hours than in my entire life hahah bermudian breakast (potatoes, codfish, banana, avocado and egg), pina colada and apple pie = good!!!!! and that was just one meal! okay back to the point... So they are both converts, served missions in the Philippines and then stayed faithful and strong until they were able to meet faithful priesthood holders. They both married Bermudians and moved here to raise a family, leaving behind all of their friends, culture, and family because they knew that they needed to marry inside the temple and they were going to sacrifice whatever they needed to do to do that. They are awesome! I love them dearly. Well now that I have rambled on I will just say that I know this church contains the fullness of God's plan for us. Other religions may have good principles and truth but The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has it all!! And I say that in the most humble way possible. Because I also know we need to be humble in order to receive and recognize the Lord's blessings. So be humble! And Be happy! And BE OF GOOD CHEER!!!!!!! I love you!
p.s. Happy Birthday McKay!!!!! Thank you for your example of being a solid missionary! I love you! Don't party too hard in Vegas;)
Love you all!!!!
Love, Sister Meyer
