Met our Mission President, President Woodbury and his wife. I love them already. He’s got a heart full of love. He was told when getting set apart by Pres. Uchtdorf that he must love his missionaries. And Pres. Woodbury told us, “That’s one part of his calling he know he can do well.” He’s amazing and I know he’s who I need from this point on.
H___ and M___ dropped us. They’re a married couple and M___ doesn’t want to progress as much as H___ does. So we got dropped. To get up to their apt, you have to walk down three hallways. H___, M___, and their daughter Z___ all walked us out of their apt and I knew it was an official goodbye bc it was never the whole family to walk us out together like that. It was the longest walk out of their apt and all I wanted to do was cry. I never really understood what people meant when they said that it’s like a breakup when investigators drop you. But now I know. I’ll be praying for them.
July 4th was fun! Disappointed that I couldn’t be with family or friends. But I spent my day with members from the branch and we had a good time hanging out with them. I love our branch and for the first time yesterday in a LONG TIME there were several people who came to church who haven’t been in MONTHS. Yesterday was the best Sunday I’ve had since I’ve been out in the field. The branch is getting a lot closer and that’s all I’ve wanted for a while. There’s so much to say but I have to go. I love you all and I’m always praying for all of you. Take care and stay fly!
