Megan's Letter 2/13/17

Hey y'all! We have had a little bit of an eventful week here, with not that much missionary work! It turns out that Sister Tunuufi needed to get her wisdom teeth out. So we came down to Birmingham and she got them cut right out at UAB dentistry. Little miracle-- Her surgeon was the only Mormon guy working there!

Then we stayed the whole weekend at the Mission Home with the Sainsbury's. They are so amazing! It was great to be able to have so much personal time spent with them. Sister Tunuufi is recovering well and we are heading back to Florence today!
 ​Also I went on an exchange yesterday and Saturday with Sister Trepanier because her companion was sick! So we swapped. We caught a toad so I could take a picture for Brynn. (:

 ​Then this morning we went and walked around Star Lake with the Sainsbury's! It was an interesting week for sure but we had a lot of fun.

This week I've been thinking a lot about what brings us true joy! One of my favorite scriptures gives us a pretty clear answer. Mosiah 2:41 says:

 "And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it."

The truth is, that no matter what we are going through we can find happiness and lasting joy in the gospel of Jesus Christ! We are promised that, so long as we are willing to keep the commandments. I love this gospel and I am so happy because of it! Hope everyone has a good week. I love y'all!

-Sister Merrill
