so Dad i am sorry i that i didnt look back but i was like so exicted and nervous and stuff! and well you know! Getting in was great and i was welcomed like 600 times but that is good;) but yeah my comp is Sister Jenson, she is from american fork and funny story she and Elder Chamberlain dated before and he is in our district so  i find that amusing sometimes:) the first couple days were really up and down and sometimes super hard, i had to really find out why i wanted to be here! i am starting to get the hang of things though so no worries:) i am really excited! i love feeling the spirit all day long!! 

i am sorry i am typing super fast and i have limited time so yeaa, bear with me:) i will get better at this;) 

I think that what i have learned most was that i have to live the atonment everyday and that becoming better and more like Christ is the only way that i am going to be able to help my investigators ( right now we are teaching Adam and Rachel) they are both really cool and i hope that we can help tthem in coming to Christ.

Caleb, Rachel is going to have a booth at comicon, i want you do go see her if you are going this year again! will you do that for me? she does cool art stuff and she is way good! i would love for you to meet her! her name is Rachel Everett!:) 

so yeah funny story yesterday I was chatting with the elders in our district and i was chugging my water bottle and they said if i blew into it, water would shoot faster into my mouth, but i said no there is a aiir hole so....that wouldnt happened. I then proceeded to blow really hard into the water bottle and to say the least i was wet for the rest of the day and my whole front side was drenched....the elders were definitly right and my mouth isnt that big;) oh well we had a great laugh about it!

the sisters are all super close now and we have so much fun together! our nicknames are 
Sister Jolly ( jenson)
Sister Tuckandroll (Tucker)
Sister smiles (miles)
Sister Mario (Bowser)
Sister bonkers (johnson) 

we are having the best time here and cant wait to continue our service!  I love you all and miss you dearly! I am praying for you:) 

Sister Taylor Andrus
