Love you all,
So overall this week was pretty good, we were able to get a lot of good work in and so that was super good. ;)
We worked with our investigator, Anna, this week and taught her and her grandma ... and guess what, they came to church this week! It seems like after we gave her the blessing, her life has gotten a lot better and she has been a lot happier because she was able to go to the church and is able to do those things that she is really enjoying and trying to do. :) Anna's testimony is going really well and we can see her progressing a ton.
I had an interview with my Mission President today and he said that I am doing really well and that he is really glad that I am in his mission. :) It was nice to hear his compliment and super cool to be acknowledged as a good missionary. Haha
This week was super wet. It rained A LOT. The house didn't really flood, like before. If it does flood again, I will get pictures because it's super crazy. But´as of right now I don't have any flood pictures to send you ;) Mom's note: Jon sent a message that his house had flooded and so we asked him if he had pictures -- that is what he is talking about above.
Overall I don't know how detailed I can be today because nothing really cool happened, just regular missionary stuff. We are still working with Pablina, and I believe that deep down she knows that she needs to get baptized but just it hasn't really hit her yet. We feel good about her and have hope for her, and I think she will get baptized in the next month, so hopefully we can work that out.
So today was a Zone Meeting and interviews with President McMullin. It was a cool day. We played the scripture game again today and I was really good at it, haha, even the A.P.'s were like "I hear that Turley is a beast with the scriptures." It is pretty cool that I am known as a kid who know the scriptures, it is super sick (awesome).
Things have changed a lot for me in the last year ... I have changed a lot as a person. I know that I still have a year left and that I still have a lot to learn, and I am continuing to work on myself. I'm so thankful for you all. I know that it is almost Thanksgiving in America, so I want to say that I am thankful for all my family. I love all of you and know that I am here because you all never gave up on me. My family is the best family in the world, and I am so blessed to be part of you all.
I love you all, and I am excited that we have all of eternity to "kick it" (be together). ;)
