July 2, 2013-- Week 2
Hi everyone!!!!
This week has gone by so fast I don't know where to start! I loved getting your letters this week!
   -Caty! I loved the dear elder that you sent me. I did get a pix with Michael but it is hard to coardinate and find McKay and get a picture with all of us together but I will send you a pix when we do. I heard that you got sick on the way home and Mom too. I hope that you both will feel better. although in a way it is funny, because you also got sick when we dropped off Meghan, so when Robert goes you better watch out! Ha Ha Ha.
   -Robert! Great job at scout camp!! Did you have fun even though it was with a different ward? how was baseball camp with the cousins? How Much fun did you have at the beach?
   -Ashton Rose! I am so very glad that you all got my snail mail letters, and I will try to write you an all of them! I am so happy that you get to get your cast off July 8th! Send me a before and after picture so that I can see. I love and miss you so much! Make sure to catch a wave for me when you can! Also I loved all of your P.S.'s they were great!
   -Adam Keith! I'm so glad that you had fun at the beach with the cousin's, and that you got tumbled in a "washing machine" I've had that happen to me a few times. WATERMELON FLAVORED OREOS!!!! Those sound great!! Did you eat one of them for me? if not then you should tell mom to let you have two right now! (one for you, and one for me) When you said that you wanted to be a missionary too you made me cry! And that was not very nice of you. Ha Ha Ha. I have given a Book of Mormon away already. I gave it to Mikola, also he said that he would be baptized!! Yay. Mikola is actualy one of our teachers and his name is actually Brat Adams, but we felt the spirit when we were teaching him.
   -Mama! Don't you just hate the computer when it does that to you? I know I don't like it when it does that. but in the and all is well and I'll get it eventualy. I heard that you wern't feeling well. :( So sorry that I wasn't there to help you get better. I got the package from dearelder today just after breakfast and was so excited! I actualy got the slip for it last night but then the package area had already closed so I had to wait till this morning. I know that in most of the pictures my hair is pulled back, but I just got my bangs cut today so in upcomming picures they will be down. =]
   -Daddy! I loved the short tim that we had to email back and forth last P-Day! it was great! I love hearing from you all so much! One of the girls in my district sounded really interested in you book!
   We started teaching another investigaor yesterday, her name is Svitlana. It didn't go as well as I would have hoped, but hoefully things will get better. We meet with her again on Saurday. The temple is now closed, but I think that it will reopen before we have to go o Ukraine. We did get a chance to go through and do a session last P-Day. Sister Faber is contemplating going home there is a young man who may marry her, she has already recieved an answer, but is is emailng him today.
Time is running short and I have to get going. I love you all so much

June 25 2013-- Week 1

Week 1-- June 25, 2013
Hi everyone!!!!!
   This week has gone by so fast. I don't even know where to start.
   Well its my P-Day today, Tuesday. I am in a trio companionship just like Sister Graff, who knew? There names are CECTPA Charles and CECTPA Faber. CECTPA is sister in Ukrainian, pronounced "sestra".  There are 11 people in my district and we are all sisters going to L'viv Ukraine, and of course we all arrived June 19th!! The first day was so crazy, (Meg why didn't you tell me), I got into class and I think that the teacher only spoke to us in english 5 times! The rest was in Ukrainian. So crazy!
   I now know how to pray in Ukrainian, and I am working on my testimony. On friday we taught our first lesson!! And it was in Ukrainian no less!!! Even though I could hardly understand what I was saying I somehow was able to relate to our investagator, Mikola, about Joseph Smith, even though we had not been taught anything about that yet. The spirit has been so strong since then in each lesson that we teach. I can hardly wait till tomorrow when we teach him our fourth lesson. We will be asking him to be baptized.
   I saw McKay the first day at dinner, but I didn't have my camera with me so I will try to catch him again for that picture. However I didn't see Michael until Saturday and I did have my camera so I got a picture with him. I also saw Briar that day as well, and got a picture with her. It was so great to see them all.
   Sunday my companion CECTPA Faber was not feeling well and was not able to go to the broadcast. However the front office told me and CECTPA Charles to go to it so I was able to go. Meghan were you wearing red? I was farther back and didn't get to see the faces on the screen as well but I thought of you bunches.
I love and miss you all so much!! Don't forget to write me!!
P.S. I got the package and loved it!!!
