Here's Nicole's latest email home!
Though she had another long week,
she explains that she still saw miracles.
Read what she had to say below:
This week was long, but we still saw miracles!
I love my calling and I love these people way more than I ever thought possible! As transfer calls approach (aka the call of doom) this weekend, I am getting very anxious. The Clayton ward will be getting their own set of missionaries (right now we share the ward with elders) which is exciting, but makes me sad. I love that ward so much and the thought of me not being able to serve in that area anymore breaks my heart. But, I love Deer Park too! We work with more people in Clayton, but the Deer Park ward is so missionary minded! I've gotten to really know the members in this ward and they are so awesome! I love these areas so much!!! I feel God's love for each individual in my boundaries and that's the greatest gift anyone could ever ask for...to love so deeply. It makes transfers hard, but makes the idea of coming back to visit so joyful! I'm grateful for all that my Heavenly Father has given me and the help He sends to me, and all of you, everyday! I know my Savior lives and I know His plan is perfect, no matter where He takes me!
I love you all! Have a wonderful week!
After hitting send, Nicole noticed she had more time!
"Tender mercy from Heavenly Father....I got more time to send photos!! We write at the library and sometimes people reserve computers or there aren't any available. My computer only gave me 30 minutes to do all my emailing (instead of 1 hr and 30 min) so I was rushed. But, once it logged me off after the 30 min, it let me log back on! Don't know if there was a cancellation or what, but I'm grateful! Heavenly Father looks out for His servants!
So here are the photos! We went to Zion's Camp for Breakfast. Zion's Camp is a church owned camping ground with lots of historical places marked. It was so cool to see it! The ward camped out over night and since we can't go camping, we just showed up for the food:) We did get to help make the pancakes though:)
The one photo with all the skulls is from a lady's house who we had dinner with. She had animal skulls EVERYWHERE!! It's a lot of fun to meet so many different people:)
