August 19, 2013
Dear Mom & Dad,
This is the hardest thing I have ever done. I never thought being away from you guys for so long could impact me like this. I am having a really hard time adjusting here. I don't get to email until Wednesday. I just don't know if I can do this. I keep asking God for comfort & to understand the gospel.
We started teaching an "investigator" the other day and prepared a lesson on who Heavenly Father is. I set up this great lesson and when it comes time to teach, my mind goes blank from all the pressure. It's just hard for me because I am trying my best, and praying for the Spirit to be there and to help me teach.
Other than the classes, I am having such a great time here! I have yet to see Steve (Haglund) or Will (Anderl). I feel as if when I see them I will feel more comforted & not so alone.
I feel like I am getting fat already. We have a choice between 3 Entrees and I always choose all 3. I haven't been running in a while also, so that is kind of sad but anyways it is very fun here, meeting so many new people from different places around the world.
I love you guys. Give some love to Brillo and Buddy for me!
