Hello my friends and Family!
Its very good to hear from you all! 🙂 I want you to know how much I enjoy reading about your lives and I don’t know if you know this but life as a missionary is really hard… so I am grateful for all the love and support you all give me. Thank you! 🙂
Also! No transfer this week! I’ll be here in Marshalltown until June 9th! Because this is a 7 week transfer! 🙂 Sister Thorn and I are both happy with it! haha Pretty much I’ll be a year old in the mission before I leave. Maybe i’ll only have 3 areas my whole mission… Who knows!
So this week I’d say our biggest Miracle is Max Levis, he is the grandpa of a missionary serving from our ward. (He’s in California) But we’ve been teaching him. Yay! Right now he’s the only member of his family a member. so its pretty cool 🙂
Also this week we were able to have a Zone Pday! and That was so fun! Although… I didn’t appreciate that the Elders wouldn’t let us sisters play football… They don’t understand how good I am at football… -_- “too much contact” they said… LAME! But its okay! Because we sisters went Bowling!! HAHA! Take that Elders! haha 🙂 We had a good time and I got to see Sister Baransky again! 🙂 She’s doing well! Her Sister’s been Emailing her and sending her stuff 🙂 slowly but surely her mom will come around I know it! 🙂 Also with Zone P day we played basketball, volleyball, and scatterball. 🙂 Its fun because I don’t think the Elder’s expect the competitiveness that comes with Sister Pope… haha 🙂 I enjoy it immensely. and i’ve got some pretty sick bruises 🙂 They are purple and its awesome!
Its been a pretty rough week but we kept trucking on! and I was doing pretty well until Friday… my companion got sick, and I was stuck in the apartment all day… with nothing but my own thoughts for company… (My comp was sleeping) and then I didn’t know what else to do so I called Sister Jensen and she made me feel better 🙂 She gave me some talks I needed to read and then gave us permission to drive to stake conference so she could hug us. 🙂 So we went Saturday night for Stake Conference 🙂 That was pretty cool. but on Sunday we decided we were going to watch the broadcast in Marshalltown 🙂 That was a good choice because Sister Thorn was dying haha 🙂 Just of allergies but she was not good enough to go out… Hopefully this week is better! I pray it is! I love you all!! Thank you again for all you do!!
I’m still Ponderizing Ya’ll! 1Nephi 7:21 I love it because of how Nephi is able to forgive his brothers so easily. 🙂 “I did Frankly Forgive them” I’ve been working on forgiveness this week and I know that there is joy that comes from letting go of grudges and allow the atonement to work in your life. I know there is so much power in the atonement. Keep working hard my friends and remember that I love yoU!
All my love,
Sister Brittany Pope
