May 27, 2014 - E-mail

The computer is not reading my memory card...So no pictures again.... Sorry. My birthday was great, as you know I spent it with Chris and Dom, we all had dinner at the Schleigh house, they are my favorite family here. Sister Schleigh reminds me of you and then Sister Black, her best friend, reminds me of Heather. It's funny cause I'd say they live the same distance apart as you and Heather do. How is Heather doing? What have they all been up to? 

Memorial Day was great! We were able to go to the Airborne Museum in downtown Fayetteville. It was pretty neat. There are a lot more "wars" and "battles" than I thought there was.

Yes, I have been praying for the package as well. Dominiic and Chris feel really bad. I know it'll turn out sooner or later. So no need to worry about it. It's in God's hands, If it wasn't supposed to get to me, then it wasn't. Maybe someone else needed it?

Ahh, man that is so sad to hear about the Forsey's dog!

(Referring to the previous post of a fellow Missionary Momma taking Elder Beach's picture)  Yes, The whole time her son was saying the exact same thing I would be saying to you if you were taking a missionaries picture. It was funny, I'm like don't worry, I went through this too, she took pictures of little kids in puddles.* (Just kidding I didn't say that part)
Ahh man, I really hope Brillo doesn't move on before I get home! I miss him so much! I wish I could just lay on the Brillo infested floor with him and scratch his belly! (Brillo is a shedder)
But this last week was great, we had our baptism on Saturday, It was a pretty powerful service! I love being a missionary and seeing how real the Atonement really is! Seeing people change their lives! We have an investigator right now, who did pretty much everything you could think of that is against the law. He's had a really rough past, and is now on his way to being baptized next month. He just has to finish quitting smoking. He maybe had a pack a day and is now down to smoking half a cigarette a day now!

It is super tough here because EVERYONE SMOKES HERE. I'm just glad I'm not in Washington State or Colorado where it is legal to smoke marijuana. That would be pretty tough.

That's All Folks!

Elder Beach

*In Momma Beach's defense, it was the most adorable thing I have ever seen!  I was waiting at a stop light and it was raining.  A mother, in high heels and a skirt, had her toddler son with her and they were jumping in puddles together.  She didn't care that she was dressed up, she was making memories with her son and I took a picture.   Seriously, it was so touching!
