100 days old

This week was a pretty great week!  I hit my 100th day being a missionary.  There is another sister that lives in the apartment with us that came out with me so we had a little party that included root beer floats, nerf gun wars, and other funnish like stuff.
One of the best things this week was the fact that everyone's gardens have started putting off food so they have vegetables and fruit coming out there ears.  Everyone is so generous to missionaries and end up giving us bags of fresh produce.  I think I'll stay a missionary forever.  Yesterday, a member gave us this huge bag of nothing but raspberries.  Pretty much made my life.
Sunday was ward conferences so we had the Stake leaders come and talk and guess what they talked about?? Missionary work!  It was amazing.  They are really geared into it and have actually rearranged things so that each of the wards in the stake can watch the Work of Salvation broadcast during the church block (If you haven't seen it, go watch it.  It is amazing.) One speaker talked about a letter home from her son that was on a mission.  They had an area seventy come and talk to their Stake and talked about the broadcast.  He said that the importance of the announcements about technology and getting the members more involved in missionary work was an announcement that would have ramifications that would rival that of the First Vision and coming out of the Book of Mormon.  Can you say WOW?!  He also went on to say that this is the beginning of the end and the time to just stand up for our religion has past but it is now our duty to go out and DEFEND the truth.  It was pretty powerful and I had goosebumps the whole time he was speaking.  I just love being a missionary where it is my full-time job to share the gospel with others.  It's an amazing time to be alive and an amazing time to be a member of the church.
It was a good pump up to go out and start another great week of finding and teaching others about this wonderful knowledge we have!  I hope you all have a great week and give your missionaries some awesome referrals!
