Welp folks, this is the last letter from hermana emily hanks. Kinda depressing, but really, I shouldnt be having that attitude. There is always the next thing in life! My mission days are counting down rapidly, and its without a doubt been the best and hardest experience of my life (as everyone says). Im grateful for every minute of it-every trial, every lesson, contact, etc. I love contacting because i really dont have a fear to tell people i know that this is true and that God lives.
Mom-my companions name is hermana stack. i cant believe i didnt tell you that! shes from arkansas.
this week was good. miracle time-mariella stopped smoking! they changed houses, so she doesnt live next to a place where there are cigs and it doesnt smell like it there either.
the members are psyched about the ward still. yesterday, we had a relief society lesson super good. in the end, one of the hermanas said,"there really is a spirit of love here. gracias hermanas. " something like that.
everybody thouht i was leaving yesterday. haha. but nope! one more week. and im gonna give everything i got without any regrets.
see yall in a week.
