[No Subject]

Hello hello hello!!!!!!!

It was so good to see you all on Thursday! I love seeing your faces and hearing your voices! :)
Christmas was so fun. The families in my ward here really take care of us. We have sooooo much candy and junk in the apartment. You can imagine what our New Year's Resolution is going to be. haha. But anyway, we had a fun Christmas day. Life is good!
Friday was the bessst!! I got to go back to my greenie area for an exchange! I was so excited! I got to go to Corydon with Hermana Bown. She's amazing. Our first appt. was with Josue, who my trainer and I baptized. It made my heart so happy to see him, but at the same time kind of sad because he's really struggling. :( We taught him about repentance and read Alma 36 with him. It was amazing to feel the same Spirit we used to feel when we taught him almost a year ago. Heavenly Father loves him so much, even if he's struggling. I'm going to write him an uplifting letter today. Anyway, the rest of the exchange went well. We got to see lots of members and new people. I even got to see the Van Uiterts! Their son who just got home from his mission came out teaching with us. It was great! I love Corydon!!!!! <3
The STL life is pretty exhausting but rewarding. We are getting into the thick of exchanges, so Hermana Graham and I feel like we never get to work with each other, because when we ARE together we're planning -- for the week, for our trainings, for Church. It's craziness! But our schedules are always filled, and it's so fun to get to work with all the other hermanas and see how they're doing. It's been amazing to see how some of the experiences I've had throughout the mission have been able to help some of the hermanas I've worked with. It's a wonderful calling. :)
I'm ready to get over this holiday hump already. I love Christmas and the holidays, don't get me wrong, but boy are we struggling! We've been eating so many sweets and trying not to overdose on sugar and sweets. Plus everyone's busy and/or out of town, so we had quite the interesting week. But here we go! Life's gonna get good!!
Well stay awesome yall! Happy New Year! I can't believe it's almost 2015!!!!! D: :D I don't know whether to be happy or sad about that!
