О МОЯ ДОРОГАЯ СЕМЬЯ. ПРИВЕТ!

hi i love you so much. i got another package and more letters! it’s at the post office…haha. we’re getting it today though and I’M SO EXCITED. ummm no one told me where you all live. i need your address!!! i was going to send a package home today, but i’ll have to do it next week when i have your address. get excited. this package is going to be life-changing.

THANK YOU for sending the music! y’all are life savers. i can’t belive you got that done on top of all the house craziness. you’re at least the best family in all creation. as per usual….i need a few things. so, i have an assignment for anyone who wants it. probably joe and kels will think it’s fun, and will already know some maybe. i see people signing here ALL THE TIME. it’s insane, i seroiusly see people signing at least 3 or 4 times a week. i always get so excited and almost go sign to them, but then…i realize that probably they don’t know ASL and actually i don’t understand anything they’re siging. sooo….i need y’all you find out some russian sign language for me so i can say a couple things to these people! because sometimes they come up to us and sign and i want to talk to them so bad but i dont’ know how. haha. so send me videos or something with russian signs please! also. mama, some of my friends here have added me on instagram and facebook, could you go through and accept their requests? thansk! aaanddd…heh heh, so either our scale is broken or i’m gaining a pound a week and am right on track to gaining 72 pounds on my mission..so…..ma, there’s a workout routine in my jessi.kane.jk email, it’s in the starred emails from andrea nelson, could you please email me that and i’ll print it off here? thanks…heh…uh. yup.

OKAY. this week was INCREDIBLE.i have never witnessed so many miracles in my life. maybe i just haven’t looked for them so much. and it’s been so much fun! i was looking through my journal to see what happened this week, and one day was like 2 sentences long and i had written, “i have no time..mom sent me a 500 puzzle so…..that explains the time issue. woops!” haha. that about explains how every spare minute of meal hours and night times have gone. i’m pretty much halfway done! it’s the best thing. we decided we’re going to buy another puzzle (we found a cool store by our apt that has lots) and do it on new years when we have to be in the apt at 5 PM. woohoo! oh my. i just realized i only have 10 minutes left! okay, quick funny story and then MIRACLES. so we went to a different city this week for exchanges with the sister training leaders. we were at a pit stop (we took a 6 hour bus there) and these two guys were sitting on a PARKED motorcycle, and one guy fell off. the guy behind me started laughing so hard but he was trying to not laugh loud, and then i started laughing because he was laughing, then we finally stopped laughing after a minute, and sister broadhead asked what happened. in russian, i replied, “he fell.” and the guy behind me just lost it agian. he started laughing so hard, and then all three of us were laughing. it was the best. also, we had the same driver ont he way back (which is so rare), and he RULES. he bought the tiniest little puppy at a pit stop. SO FUNNY. this country rules. oh, i heard that trump is our president. lol. that’s way fun, have fun! i heard that he told obama he was fired, i thought that was pretty funny.

okay. SO MANY MIRACLES. serously. i don’t even know where to start. well first, yesterday i forgot to blow out the candle before we left the apt, and id int’ know until we got back and it was still burning. it had been burning from 8 AM to 3 PM and it was like it had only been burning for 20 minutes. seriously, we let it go for 30 and by then the glass is usually relaly hot and a ton of the wax has melted, but the glass wasn’t even hot and only a little bit of the wax had melted. literally that’s impossible. such a miracle. (pls still send me candles when i need them i promise i’m responsible). okay, we met with Вика (Vika) this week, and she is incredible. we asked her where she thought we came form, why we’re on earth, and where we’re going after death, and she basiaclly taught us the plan of salvation. she is so pure and loving, oh my goodness i love her so much. i will take a picture with her this week and send it. she is on baptismal date too so that’s way exciting! we had 3 investigators at churhc, which is INCREDBLE. the fact that we even have that many (well more, really) investigators is a miracle. also, we recieved a referral form church headquarters, that said this woman wanted a BOM. so we called but she had no idea what we were talking about. she said she didn’t request a book and we must have the wrong number, so we just hung up and that was that. then a few minutes later she called back and said, “wait. actually i want to know about this book. how much does it cost? how can i get one?” so we’re meeting with her tomorrow to give her a BOM! oh my goodness, there just is not enough time. i could go on FOREVER about the miracles happening every day in Kryiviy Rog. It’s incredible. i could serve my whole mission here and be so happy. oh PS, transfers happened, i forgot. i’m staying here, though. haha. i’m so so grateful. i would be devastated if i had to leave already. oh! and you kept asking for my address. i’ll give you mine when you give me yorus….just kidding. i really don’t know mine. haha. sorry! uhh i’ll see if i can get something for you, but i don’t know my address. just the office’s! ah, out of time. i don’t knwo what picture is which, sorry. LOV EYOUUUUUU.
