Week Thirty Seven - Tender Mercies, Landon's Aunt and Feeling the Spirit!
Sunday night, I had an e-mail from Denae Lambert, David's best friends mother. Her sister, Corrine, who lives in McKinney had run into David at church that morning and had sent her this picture! Her husband is the stake president. It's just a small world!
Greetings family and friends!What a week I had! So much has changed so quickly and it just feels weird. But change is good. I've now got the change of scenery that I was ready for and I am excited to make the most of my time here in McKinney! McKinney. I don't know how to describe McKinney. It's definitely not Lakewood, and it's definitely not Grand Prairie. There are parts of it that are more country, especially out in Princeton, another city that we cover. Parts of it are really spread out, parts of it are old and historic houses, parts of it are really new and modern. Down town kind of reminds me of main street, Park City. There is a little bit of everything here! It's big, and there is still a lot that I haven't seen yet. People here are nice. The Hispanics here seem to have more money, good stable jobs, and normal families. I am hoping that means they are maybe more intelligent, easier to teach, and more dependable in setting up lessons and keeping their commitments. We have a decent amount of investigators right now. A few that I still haven't met, but nobody seems to be really close to baptism. But that's okay, because right now I have the attitude that I am exactly who everybody needs right now, and I am the one that will spark that fire within them and help them get over that hump of doubt, worry, misunderstanding, and lack of desire.
I believe that is it. Love and miss y'all more and more everyday! Have a splantastifical week and come closer to the Savior while you're at it! g2g. Until next week!
