God Bless America

Soooooo sorry for the lack of activity lately.
Sadly, this post is probs going to be mega boring because not much has been going on, but at the same time a ton of stuff has been going on.
Life is insane.

Can I make a suggestion to all those out there preparing for talks in sacrament meeting?
Please, for the love, PLEASE talk about Jesus. 
Yesterday, in sacrament meeting the topic was "Patriotism."
So I'm thinking, "Okay. This could be good. Talk about the freedoms we enjoy in this land what a blessing from GOD." 
OH, no.
One kid gets up and starts talking about how America is the greatest and no other countries compare to it.
Over the pulpit.
Did I mention our two investigators came?
Did I mention it was there first time at church??
Did I mention they are from I N D I A ? ? ?
Coming from a family that has been blessed to know several different cultures, I was born and raised with the belief that no one is greater than another.
I mean, America rocks for sure.
God bless America.
But seriously though, people, we're all God's children here and his gospel is centered on LOVE and CHRIST.
Let's keep it centered there.
The day just gets better and better when we head to class and what are we discussing today?
Not, "I love to see the temple" kind of temple talk but, deep doctrine, "I swear if you bring up Kolob, I'll murder you." kind of temple talk. 
Being a missionary is stressful. 
The church is true.
The church is perfect.
The people aren't.
But that's okay.
Because you know what?
It's still the Lord's work and He's the head of it.
Also, miracles happen because even though it was probably THE WORST Sunday to take new investigators to, they still said they had a nice time and felt good aka THE SPIRIT (aaaaaaaaahhh!!) there.
God bless Hoosiers.

Sincerely, Sister Soloa'i

Not even the gnomes answered their doors that day

Shout out to my windy, underpopulated, dry aired (miss you), mountain-blessed Wyoming. You da one. 

You know you're in the hood when...
