Me with Elder Wilkinson at the Johannesburg Temple
This week was also great! I'm definitely loving being a missionary. Yes I did get your other package and grandma's and also one from grandma and grandpa Dickman this week! Sorry i forgot to tell you. THANK YOU! They made me happy for sure. Now I'm sad that I don't get to have another Christmas on mission so I can get some more sweet packages! haha. Shall I extend and make that 10 month countdown go to...13 or 15?? hahaha Sorry I know you are frowning right now mom :) SMILE! Thanks for reminding me that it's only 10 more months! :P That's short ya know? I feel like I'm gonna leave this area way too soon and then I'm not gonna be a missionary anymore pretty soon and that's also gonna be sad. It's so much hard work but the rewards are so great! I love to see people change and make it to baptized and start their path to eternal life! My last day in Joburg 1 is most likely gonna be march 5th and I don't want that cause we have so many awesome people that we are teaching that will be getting baptized that month!
Love you family! Have fabtastic week!
