I love hearing how life is going in Arkansas, Utah, Ohio, and Branson. This week was awesome. It was just like most other weeks, but Beverly Glen is a great area. And it's fun serving with Elder Gwilliam.
That's awesome you guys got to go to the Branson ward! They sing like angels. I'm very grateful I did choir/piano - you definitely can use music a lot on your mission. One investigator we're teaching, takes piano lessons from us and then we share a lesson. Music brings the Spirit more powerfully than anything I know.
There are so many neat experiences we've had the past couple weeks - I wish I could describe them with words. Kind of like when we pray, but don't really have the words to say:
Some of the most touching mission experiences are when I get to interview people before baptism. As a way to help them know they are ready. Last week I got to interview a boy who is 9. He is such a good kid. He told me about how the day before, his mom left him & his sister for good. He started to cry and said, "But that's okay, I know my Dad in Heaven loves me. I reassured him that He does & said "How do you know He loves you?" He said "Every time I pray He gives me a big warm hug. And when I read The Book of Mormon."
Have a good week!
