Fasting Brings Blessings

March 23, 2015

Hey family,
It's warming up here in Texas! And the humidity is getting intense. After a day of work, I come home and my hair looks like I just got out of the shower. It's going to be a muggy summer! But right now the weather is still nice, so I'm enjoying it before the true heat kicks in.
In the mission, you do a lot of fasting. We've done a lot of fasting lately, but I've learned to look forward to it because the Lord helps us so much while we fast! Fasting is hard and not exactly fun, but I love seeing all the blessings that come from it. For example, we are working with a family right now! We are teaching a mom and her 4 sons, and two of  the sons are baptismal age. We had been fasting that day to find a family, and then we found one! I love how quick the Lord answers our prayers sometimes. Ask and ye shall receive!
I love it here in Beeville. We are constantly busy and always have people we are working with. I feel so blessed to be working here. We have our challenges because the ward is super small (just graduated from being a branch), but the Lord is helping us out.
I hope y'all enjoy your week! Make sure to fast this Sunday (General Conference is coming up)! Watch for them blessings!

Tender Mercies

March 16, 2015

Hey family,
Man, this week has been weird. I wrote last week about how one of the sisters in our apartment was super sick and couldn't go out and work in her area. Sister Ferguson and I had been taking turns going and working with her companion in their area, so that they could have contact with their members and investigators. It was really difficult because that meant I didn't work with Sister Ferguson for 5 days in a row, and that meant we couldn't work in our area as much as before. We were losing contact with investigators and we were just overwhelmed. Even though we weren't getting out to our area very much and I hadn't been with my companion for almost a week, I felt happy that I was helping the other sisters. It's true that you are the happiest when you put another person's needs before your own. Well, Sister Ferguson did not have the same attitude about it. She hated being stuck inside with the sick sister and frequently stressed that our area wasn't being worked. One night she broke down and cried and said she didn't want to help the sister anymore. She even said, "I'm sorry, I know this is wrong, but it ticks me off that you are completely fine and happy while I'm falling apart over the situation." As her trainer, I understood that this was super stressful for her, but I also knew that Heavenly Father understood that we were trying to make things work. I told her that I was happy because we were doing our best, even if it appeared that our best wasn't enough. I told her, "Sister, I'm sure Heavenly Father is going to help us make the most of the little time we have to work in our area." Sure enough, the next day, we had two hours to work in our area together and the coolest thing happened. We were sitting in our car praying before going out to knock on a door, and a car stops in the middle of the road. A guy rolled down his window and we recognized him as an investigator named Chris that we had lost contact with during this crazy week. He hadn't answered our phone calls all week, so we were super surprised to see him. He said, "Church girls! I haven't been ignoring you! I've been working all week, so I haven't called you back. In fact, I'm working right now. But I can meet you at the park in 30 minutes." It was a miracle!
Heavenly Father helped us make the most of the little time we had to work in our area. We reconnected with an investigator and now Chris is progressing.
This week was stressful, but I can see a ton of tender mercies of the Lord in this week! I'm so grateful that Heavenly Father is in control and is helping the work here in Beeville!

Go to Church!

March 9, 2015

Howdy amigos,
This week has been crazy! Everyone has been sick here in my apartment but me (hallelujah), and I'm so grateful for health on the mission! I actually had to stay home with one of the sisters on Sunday, so I didn't go to church yesterday (she has a nasty case of the flu). Let me tell you, church is important. It just makes your week go better and recharges your spiritual batteries. I'm already feeling the whole in my week! AHHH! Missionaries should not miss church!!!!!
I'm so grateful for church! It's an awesome opportunity to come together and to support one another. Of course, partaking of the sacrament and learning more of the gospel is super important, too. But I just love the spirit of church, even when there are babies crying and kids fighting. It's great to see families there. There are a lot of old people in Beeville, so we joking call it the geriatric ward. haha. The elderly people here are hilarious! These people are very back-woodsy and look like they came out of Duck Dynasty. It's awesome.
I love Beeville and think this mission is so diverse. Every area is so different.
Anyways, I know the church is true and that we need to go to church! I will never take church for granted again! We need that spiritual pick-me up every week.
I love y'all! I'm excited for General Conference in a month! It's going to be awesome.

Todavia estoy en Beeville!

March 2, 2015

Hola y'all!
I'm still in Beeville with Sister Ferguson! I'm happy that we're still together. We get along really well and I honestly love training. I hope I get to do it again during my mission.
This week was transfers, which means that we have a new sister in the apartment. I actually lived with this sister when I first came to the mission, and so I was really excited to see her again. Her name is Sister Cumberland. It has been 6 transfers (9 months) since I last lived with her. During the first few hours of being together again, Sister Cumberland said to me, "You are so different Sister Angus. You are so happy now. I can't believe how much you've changed. You seem so much more open." That was the highest compliment for me. It's hard to view change within yourself because it's so slow (and you're around yourself 24/7). Sometimes I wonder if I really am changing on my mission. Was I really being more obedient? Was I really becoming a leader?
It really helped to see that the things that I have been trying to change are actually happening. I do feel a lot more open recently and I am truly happy. Missions are awesome!

Transfers . . . dun dun DUN!

February 23, 2015

Hey y'all!
Tomorrow we have transfers, and we still haven't heard if I'm leaving or staying. I would love to stay and continue training Sister Ferguson, so hopefully it goes my way! We were supposed to know about transfers yesterday, but I guess our mission president is receiving last minute revelation, and that's why we don't know transfers yet! I have learned a lot of patience through transfers. haha.
This week we helped build a house again and it was fun/scary. I love Beeville and how quirky it is. A ton of the members of the ward are best friends with Amish people. They are always helping the Amish out and driving them wherever they need to go. It's interesting, but I love my mission. Texas is awesome! I love y'all and I guess I'll tell you where I'm at in my next letter! Enjoy all that snow! :)

Chocolate is Padre

February 16, 2015

Hola y'all,
How's the weather up there??? It's pretty nice here in Texas. Some days are colder than others, but overall it's nice. We bike a lot right now and it's fun.
Nothing too exciting happened this week, but I never knew the missionaries received so much love on Valentine's Day. We had members showering us with gifts (no complaints there)!
I read Ben's letters and I have to laugh about Ben's greenie getting hit by a car. That' super scary, but I love how his companion handled it. Talk about having a good attitude! haha.
This is the last week of the transfer. I think I'm staying in Beeville, but you never know. I will tell y'all next week.
I found Sister Ferguson's weakness. She is completely obsessed with chocolate. Whenever she is having a bad day, I can just give her chocolate and it completely changes her. She like those Snickers commercials. You're not you when you're hungry. haha. I'm not kidding, she goes from angry and overwhelmed to pleasant and optisimistic in like 2 seconds. It's super nice as a trainer, because I know how to fix every problem! haha.
Anyways, I love Beeville and I love my companion. We make a good team and I am so grateful that I am her trainer. I love being a trainer. It helps to have a great greenie, so she makes my job easy!
Texican word of the week: padre. It means awesome.
Have a padre week!

Happy Valentine's Day

February 9, 2015

Dear family,
This week was great! Some awesome things that happened were:

1. Two people came to church on Sunday that we gave cards to one night! They looked up the church online and came to church! So cool!
2. We had an awesome Zone Meeting, which included chasing a possum into a field (I love Texas).
3. The work is on fire here in Beeville! Sister Ferguson look forward to every day because something super miraculous and cool happens every day. It's awesome.
4. The weather is hot again!

I hope you all have a happy Valentines day! I love you!

Halfway Mark . . . .

February 2, 2015

Hey family,
This week marks 9 months in the mission.....I can't believe it. It freaks me out to think that I'm halfway done with my mission. When I started my mission in May, I honestly thought I would never make it to this point; but now that it's here, I wish I were a greenie again! If sister missioanries could extend their missions and serve for two years, I would do it. I love being a missionary and I have learned so much during my time here so far. This work is hard and often very stressful, but I've never felt so accomplished and happy in my life. Aw, I just love it!
I am determined to make the most of the second half of my mission! I'm so grateful for the Savior and for His perfect gospel. The more I learn and study the gospel, the more I realize how much I still have to learn. The gospel is endless!
I love you all and I'm so thankful for you support of my mission. Enjoy your week!

Mission Tour with Dallin H. Oaks

January 26, 2015

Hey y'all,
This week was full of craziness and fun! Sister Ferguson and I have seen a ton of miracles in our area this week, and the work is just booming here in Beeville. It's awesome. Aside from that, we had the opportunity to meet an apostle on Saturday! We drove to McAllen and had a special missionary meeting with Elder Dallin H. Oaks. It was so, so cool. I even got to shake his hand!
Every missionary in the Texas McAllen Mission was packed into the chapel and I was sitting about 5 feet away from Elder Oaks. The spirit was super strong as he spoke. There were also two members of the Seventy with him, Elder Wright and Elder Lynn G. Robbins. They both said some very profound things in the meeting, as well. One of the quotes from Elder Robbins that I liked was, "Once you're through changing, your through." It sounds redundant, but it's super true! Missions are all about changing ourselves to be more like Christ. But we only change if we want to change.
One thing I noticed about Elder Oaks is that he is really funny in person. He commented on this point and said, "A lot of people are surprised that I have a sense of humor when they meet me in person. They ask me why I never smile or loosen up during General Conference. My only response is that when you are speaking to 3 million people and you have the First Presidency sitting behind you, you're not full of giggles." I can only imagine! But he gave a really great training and I learned a ton about how to better follow the promptings of the Spirit. Overall, it was an epic meeting.
I am loving Beeville and I love all of it's quirks. I have a secret goal to stop an Amish buggy and teach them the gospel. Wish me luck!

Beeville, Texas

January 19, 2015

Helloooooo family!
I am writing you from the small library in Beeville, TX! I am in the northern-most part of the mission, and our area touches the San Antonio mission border. Beeville reminds me of Berthoud or Mead because it is so rural. There's even an Amish community in our area. And our area is HUGE! It's 50 miles wide and covers 5 towns. I was super surprised to get sent even farther away from the border of Mexico, which means I am still speaking English. Oh well! I'll just have to rely on the gift of tongues when the day comes for me to use my Spanish again! 
I am in the area of Beeville West in Sinton Zone. That won't mean anything to you, unless you are my cousin Nate, because he served in this mission. And guess who's name I found in my area book? Nate! He served in this area when it was called Woodsboro. I was so excited to find a teaching record of an investigator that he taught way back when. :)
My new companion is Sister Alyssa Ferguson from Mayville, Wisconsin! She is a fresh new missionary and I am enjoying training her. She's great! She was the only sister missionary to come in this transfer, and I feel pretty privileged to be training her. :)
This week has been pretty difficult. Side note: When both missionaries get transferred out of an area and they put two new missionaries in the area, it's called "whitewashing." And I am whitewash-training. Two very hard things.But I am taking it one day at a time. Sister Ferguson is a great greenie and we are learning our gigantic area together! 
I can already tell this will be a transfer of miracles! In this one week we have seen a lot of cool things happen together and I am excited to keep working in Beeville! 
I love y'all!

Hey there fam!
This week is transfers! And.....I still don't know if I'm leaving or staying!!!!! Wooo!
Haha, no it really stinks that I still don't know if I'm being transfered. BUT, I do know that Sister Haynes and I aren't going to be companions any more. :(
On Friday night I got a call from the APs saying that I am training a new missionary! They told me this about 5 months ago, and I never received a greenie, so I didn't quite believe them this time! But it's true! My greenie is probably flying to McAllen right now!
I am super sad to see my time with Sister Haynes end, but I am also really excited to train. I feel much more prepared now than I did 5 months ago. In the mission, your trainer is like your mom and you are her hija (daughter). So before your hija arrives in the mission field from the MTC, you are "pregnant." Ridiculous I know, but whatever. The mission lingo is weird. So yesterday we had Stake Conference and word was spreading that I was training. One of the sister missionaries is this 6 foot tall black girl named Sister Vargas. She came up to me after stake conference and yelled loud enough for the whole stake to hear, "SISTER ANGUS, YOU'RE PREGNANT???? CONGRATULATIONS! You're going to have a baby!" Oh my word, I was so embarrassed. I'm sure there were a lot of shocked people at church and now there is probably a rumor about a pregnant missionary....
But anyways, I don't know if I'm leaving or staying, but I'm excited to train!

I love you all!
the pregnant missionary

Happy New Year!

January 5, 2015

Hola familia y amigos!
I hope y'all had a fun Christmas and New Year's! I did! I loved Skyping my family on Christmas and it was so fun to talk with everyone "face to face". Technology is awesome. I really enjoyed my one and only Christmas in the mission. It was so great to just focus on the true meaning of Christmas and serve others. 
We weren't allowed to work past 6 o'clock on New Year's Eve, so we got to watch the movie "Frozen" at the church! All the missionaries in Corpus met together to watch it and it was a lot of fun. This was probably my tenth time watching "Frozen", but for a lot of missionaries, this was the first time. Only a handful of us had seen it. Before turning on the movie, one of the Zone Leaders stood up and said, "Alright. I've been waiting a long time for this moment. If any of you talk, I'm kicking you out." It was hilarious to see 20 adults completely glued to the TV watching a Disney movie.
Sister Haynes and I are still going strong and we are finally finding people in our area to teach. It's awesome! We are teaching two college-aged girls right now, and they are in nursing school, so that has been fun to bond over! :)
Next week is transfers....I have been in Corpus for about 6 months now. I absolutely love it and I am happy here, but people keep predicting that I'm leaving next transfer. It's making me so nervous! 
Stay tuned next week for the update. ;)
Les quiero (I love you)!

Feliz Navidad

December 22, 2014

I'm so excited to talk to my family on Christmas! It's going to be so fun!
We had our Christmas Zone Conference on Thursday, and all of the missionaries in Laredo and Corpus Christi came to our Stake Center for it. It was so fun! I love Christmas time in the mission! We had a great training by our mission president, and then we did some goofy skits, and opened gifts. Each missionary's family sent packages to the mission office, and we did a mission-wide gift exchange. I don't know why, but when I was opening my gifts, I wanted to cry. I started thinking about how someone's mom put this package together for me, which then made me think of my mom. I'm such a softy! Christmas Conference was a lot of fun. I'm kind of sad I only get one on my mission.
As far as missionary work goes, we are do not have any investigators. We decided to stop teaching Adela, which was sad, but she told us she is not ready for baptism. Darn coffee! But Sister Haynes and I are staying positive and are really happy right now, despite how much our area is struggling. We are full of animo and are having a lot of fun here in Corpus!
I'm so grateful for this time of year and for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ! He is the reason for the season!
I hope you all have a great Christmas! I love you!

Awkward Missionary Moment

December 15, 2014

Hola familia y amigos,
Christmas time on the mission is really fun! And Christmas is Texas is nice and warm. The one thing I find really weird is that people wrap Christmas lights around palm trees...That's just wrong.
About a week ago, a woman working for Channel 6 news (I guess that's a local Corpus Christi news channel) stopped us while we were walking to our car from our apartment. She asked if she could interview us. She wanted our opinion about a concert hall that's going to be built right next to our apartments. Since we are gone all day and can't listen to music, we honestly didn't have an opinion. We explained this to her, but she I guess didn't understand because she handed me the microphone and pointed the camera at my face and said, "State your name."
"Uh. Sister Angus."
"Ok. And what's your last name?"
"Alright, whatever. Moving on."
It was awkward. I did not want to be in front of the camera and I wasn't sure missionaries were allowed to be on TV! Anyways, I didn't know what to do, so I just talked about how we're missionaries and I didn't really care about this concert hall thingy. I'm pretty sure I was the most awkward person ever interviewed. Sister Haynes was lucky and wasn't forced to do an interview, but she kept making fun of mine for the rest of the day. Apparently I looked like a deer in the headlights. I kept praying this camera woman wouldn't use my interview on the news.
She did. My awkward missionary self was on Channel 6 news. Some of our members saw it, and now they keep teasing me about it. :)
Anyways, I'm grateful for this time of year. Christmas is a time of giving and time when people are thinking more about our Savior Jesus Christ. It's awesome! I love the church's two-minute video called "He is the Gift." It's on mormon.org and lds.org. Make sure to share it on Facebook because it's great!
Feliz Navidad, y'all!!

Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith

December 8, 2014

Dear family,
This week was super tough. Two weeks ago, our recent convert John went to the temple and helped do baptisms for his two deceased brothers and his mom. It was super awesome to get to hear him talk about the temple and answer his questions about temple work. But John is very curious and always wants to know everything. On Wednesday, John asked us some pretty deep questions about the temple and wanted to know about the ordinances and what exactly goes on inside the temple. We explained that this stuff is sacred and that in a year he could go through the temple and learn for himself then. We gave him a temple prep booklet, and we thought that was the end of it. But I could tell something was wrong. He wanted answers to his questions and he wanted them now.
On Friday night, John called the Bishop and said that he wanted his records removed and that he didn't want contact from anyone in the church. A few minutes later, John sent us a text saying, "This text is to let you know that I am resigning from the church. It's not the messenger, it's the message. Bye."
I was ticked. After 5 months of working with John, a goodbye over text just wasn't going to cut it. The next day we went over to John's apartment and knocked on the door. John opened the door and was genuinely surprised to see us. He said, "I truly wasn't expecting for you to come by. I thought after I sent you my text that that would be the end of it." And Sister Haynes said, "Oh John. Don't you know us by now? We care about you too much to just let you walk out of our lives."
Immediately as John started talking to us, I could tell that he didn't have the spirit with him. He told us that he had gone on the internet and started researching the temple. We had warned him against anti-Mormon misinformation, but that's exactly what he found. He told us that he didn't even sleep one night and just looked up "information" against the church for 24 hours straight. As missionaries, we hear everything about anti-Mormon material. We hear the most ridiculous lies to the most subtle lies. John had read everything. He had done thorough "research" and told us every lie about Mormons that I had ever heard on my mission. IT was awful to hear him deny what he knew to be true.
John has always loved and had a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. From the get-go, the Book of Mormon has been his favorite part of the gospel. So I asked him, "Do you believe the Book of Mormon is true, John?" He sat there for a long time and finally said, "No." I couldn't control it, I broke down and sobbed. I have never cried so hard on my mission. Then John said, "The best people I have ever met have been in the church. I'm really going to miss everyone." He went on the express his gratitude for Sister Haynes and me. At that moment, even John cried.
Ugh! It was the worst. You could tell John was so different and that Satan had quickly gotten a hold of him. Within 24 hours, Satan's work was done.
Don't be stupid and go searching online to find answers to the gospel. Anti-Mormon misinformation is poison. It destroys faith. Hold on to your testimonies of the Book of Mormon. I'm truly heartbroken that John-who did baptisms for the dead two weeks ago-has fallen so far. Being a missionary and watching this happen is heartbreaking. I feel true sorrow for John right now. But I know that Jesus Christ suffered for every pain and sorrow that we will ever experience. Everything wrong in this world will be made right through the Atonement. So I'll just keep on keeping on!

Triple Whammy Thanksgiving

December 1, 2014

Hola peeps,
Tomorrow is transfers....I'm staying in Corpus Christi with Sister Haynes!!!!! This will be my 4th transfer in Corpus and my 3rd transfer with Sister Haynes. I am excited!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving(s)! Sister Haynes and I had 3 meal appointments and we finished every single one of them. All 10,000 calories worth. It was slightly torturous, but every meal was delicious, so I can't really complain. Our first Thanksgiving was with a woman who isn't even an investigator, but she loves the missionaries. She wants us to come over for Christmas, too. :) Our other two Thanksgivings were with the Bishop and another awesome family in the ward. Because I'm in an area full of white people, our Thanksgivings were pretty traditional. The most unique thing I ate was Hawaiian stuffing and "armadillo eggs". Armadillo eggs are like jalapeno poppers covered in hamburger meat. It was yummy!
I am excited to serve another 6 weeks here in Corpus! And I'm super excited to be with Sister Haynes again!
Feliz Navidad, y'all!

Darn Coffee

November 24, 2014

Dear family,
Adela didn't get baptized this week. She passed her second interview, but she just can't give up coffee. We didn't think it would be a problem, since we have been working on getting her off of coffee since August. She was drinking 6 cups when we met her, and she now drinks only 1/4 of a cup per day. She said she was going to quit before her baptism on Sunday. But she just won't kick the habit. Adela told us that she has headaches if she doesn't drink coffee, and so she isn't ready to give it up. I learned a lot about patience this week. We encouraged her to pray and fast and to replace coffee with hot chocolate or even coke (for the caffeine), but she still drinks coffee. Sister Haynes and I are really saddened by this, but we still love Adela so much. We will keep working with her and hopefully she will be ready for baptism soon.
Last week we had a mission tour, which means that a General Authority came and gave a training in our mission. The General Authority who visited us was Bradley D. Foster from the second quorum of the Seventy. He actually served his mission here like 50 years ago! So he gave a really good training in "Tex Mex", which was fun!

I hope you all have an awesome Thanksgiving! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary and see how the gospel changes lives. It's changing mine! :)

Skeletons in the closet

November 17, 2014

Hola y'all,
Alrighty, I'll just crush your hopes and dreams right off the bat. Adela did not get baptized this week. But it's ok! On Tuesday we went over the baptismal interview questions with her, and she answered one of the questions honestly (which is good!!!), but it requires her to have an interview with our mission president. Her interview is scheduled this week, so hopefully she will be baptized on Sunday, November 23rd. Adela was really bummed that she couldn't get baptized last week, but we know that it will all work out!! Tengan animo, mis amigos! Expect baptism pictures next Monday! :)
This week our recent convert John went to the family history center to get his mom and brother's temple work ready. When he got set up on familysearch.org, one of the workers warned him, "Ok. Once you press this button, you could discover some 'skeletons in the closet'. You are going to find out everything you didn't want to know about your ancestors." Well, he found a pretty big "skeleton in the closet." Apparently John's father didn't die in WWII like his mother told him, but instead lived until 1981 and had five more children with another woman.... John is handling this news extremely well, considering he went his whole life believing a lie.
Yay family history!! :)
But seriously, family history is awesome. I want to be better at it after my mission.
Life is Corpus Christi is good and cold! I love you all and I hope you are enjoying that snowy Colorado weather!

Miracles Happen

November 10, 2014

Hola familia y amigos,
Well, we are going to have a baptism this week! Our investigator Adela is going to be baptized on Friday!!! WOOO. Sister Nail and I found her and have been teaching her since August. I LOVE ADELA. She is 57 years old and is a sweet single woman. She calls Sister Haynes and me her "adopted daughters." She actually introduced us to her granddaughter by saying, "These are your new aunts." haha. I feel dumb for never mentioning her until now, but we have been teaching her for a few months and I just love her. She told us, "I can tell that you really care about me. Some people are so fake. But the love I feel from you girls is real." She had been hesitant about baptism for a long time, and every time we brought it up, she would say, "I'm sorry, I'm just not ready. I don't know if I'll ever be ready." One day Sister Haynes and I were helping clean Adela's kitchen while she did the dishes. We were just quietly scrubbing the counter when Adela said out of nowhere, "I've been thinking a lot about baptism. I want to do it." Sister Haynes and I just looked at each other with wide eyes and our mouths slack. It was the best moment ever! Woop woop! I'm excited for Friday.
In other news, the weather is changing here in Corpus. The nights are colder and it gets dark around 5:30 or 6 pm. We've been chewed out a few times for having the audacity to knock on people's doors so late at night, when really it's like 7 pm. haha. But it's all good!
I love being a missionary and feeling such pure love for the people I'm teaching! Missionary work is awesome!

Prayers Answered

October 27, 2014

Dear family,
Let me just say, I am so thankful for the Holy Ghost. These past two weeks have been pretty difficult to be away from home, in the sense that my mom has been undergoing lots of medical tests with the potential of having cancer. When I first heard about all of this, I was freaking out and couldn't concentrate during Preparation Day (Monday) very well. But once 6:00 rolled around and Pday was over, I was able to snap out of it and go to work. That night I prayed and kind of had a little chat with Heavenly Father about what was going on at home. I immediately felt peace and reassurance that everything was going to be ok. That feeling continued with me throughout the rest of the week. I was amazed at how I was able to put off all of my thoughts and worries and just focus on the work here in Corpus Christi. Then a week and half later, the mission office called me. I was freaking out to see that number on my phone. When I picked it up, the woman said, "Hi Sister Angus! Your dad just called the mission office and wanted me to give you a message. Ok, are you ready??? Your mom does not have cancer!"
Best. news. ever.
I am so grateful for the comfort and reassurance the Holy Ghost provides in our lives. Even though I couldn't pick up the phone and talk to my family whenever I wanted to, the Holy Ghost was communicating to me for them. And Heavenly Father helped me stay focused on my purpose here as a missionary. I am so grateful that the Lord is watching out for my family while I am serving Him.
I love y'all and I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
