15 days, but who's counting???

February 17, 2015

I finally have come to grips with the fact that..... I really am coming home.  But not until 15 days.  I still have 15 chances to change the world as a representative of Jesus Christ. :)  This week has been really good!  I have loved every day!  We had zone training meeting, and I had to give my testimony to the missionaries (it's tradition for those missionaries going home).  It was a really good zone training meeting. I love my zone leaders.  They are amazing! They have so much love and are so inspired!
So, I had some funny run ins with people who knew people I know this week! Sunday we have the temple booth, and there was a guy from Australia there with his wife.  He asked us where we were from.  I said that I was from New Mexico, and he asked where so I said Gallup.  He said his trainer was from there.  It was David Young.  His name was Blaney.  You should find a way to tell david! he seemed really nice and loved David.

The other one happened today.  I met a family from Winslow.  They said that their favorite missionary was Elder Munns! It was really cool to have a little bit of home this weekend when I have missed home so very much.

I have missed my family so much this week! We had stake conference this weekend, and Sister Gillins got to play the piano for that, which she did amazing!  Then the entire saturday night session was about missionary work and it was phenomenal!  Elder Mills and Elder McGary, missionaries in our zone talked about happiness and love in the work of the lord.  Then, after their remarks, President Nelson (who reminds me a lot of Neil Mortensen) showed a video of their families saying hello and how much they love them! It was so beautiful! I missed my family so much in that moment.  I felt like I was watching Survivor, you know the time when they get the video of their family saying how much they love them and how much they miss them?  Ya, needless to say I cried.  I can't wait to see my family. Everyone keeps asking me what the first thing is that I'm going to do when I get home, and honestly, I haven't thought past hanging out with my family and hugging them... I don't really want anything else right now... and that's ok:)
La came to the Sunday conference, and it was EVERYTHING that she needed to get the encouragement to continue on and continue to work on her addiction. I am so happy that she was there because it was perfect. I think it was the spiritual awakening that she needed. I love her so much! I am so glad for the progress that she is making! I will miss her, along with the South Coast ward!
Guys, missionary work is the best.  Family is the best.  God is the best.  The Gospel is true.  The Book of Mormon is the guide to life, the TRUE hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy!  I love you all! I love the work! I love my mission.  I love home,  but I love California so much.  I think I'm going to always be a cali girl at heart because of my mission:)
Have a great week everyone! Try to make someone's day, every day!

Still Sister Haws
