Megan's Letter 12/12/16

We kicked off the week with Zone Training on Tuesday. It was a really good chance to get to know everyone in the zone. (: We are all working really hard to have a "white Christmas"!

Thursday was the temple trip! I am so grateful for the opportunity we have to visit the temple every few months in this mission. Gordon B Hinckley once said:

"Everything that occurs in the temple is uplifting and ennobling. It speaks of life here and life beyond the grave. It speaks of the importance of the individual as a child of God. It speaks of the importance of the family and the eternity of the marriage relationship."

Friday I went on exchange with Sister Beck! She is hilarious and super sweet all at once. We decided to take a quick stop at the bamboo forrest in Hawaii (;

The people in Millbrook are loving the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Right now we are working with some amazing people. We are teaching a funny and loud southern lady named Erica, along with her dad and her daughter. They have so much real intent, we are just waiting on them to keep commitments! I met Molly and Joe for the first time last night! They are a cute country couple and they are so prepared for the restored gospel. They are (hopefully) coming to visit the church this Sunday! We set a tentative baptism date for them for January 7th. 

I am really growing to love Millbrook! I am so grateful to be sharing this message during the Christmas season (again). I hope everyone has a great week (:

-Sister Merrill
