March 11, 2013
This week was fantastic! I'm really getting the hang of it here and have grown to really love it! People are still fun and still make jokes and still sing songs, etc! Just now a chorus of missionaries in the laundry room starting singing 500 miles by the proclaimers! So needless to say it is really fun! There is a french girl in my zone and she is so nice!! We talk in French all the time and I love it! I love keeping up the language! We've been learning more about Polish and what kind of language it is. It's a case language meaning that the way the word is used is more important than the placement of the word! We haven't really gotten into that yet, but it's still very interesting! Mom, I really want you to sign me up for a linguistics class when i start school again!
My favorite part of each day is personal study! We just get an hour to search the scriptures! Whether it's to uplift me, or to answer a question that I have, I can always find what I'm looking for in the scriptures! I've grown to love the scriptures so much!!! They are so amazing and really can answer any question that your soul has! I wish I understood that before I came here. I've always just read one chapter a night and called it good. Granted, I did try to read that chapter sincerely and get something out of it, but I didn't even ever think to have a question and then go to the scriptures. It's great to study a certain topic! This week I was realding in Alma chapter 53 and 56 and was reading about the army of Helaman and realized that I am in an army very similar to that! I don't have enough time to include the whole story, so if you don't know it, look up in the Book of Mormon in Alma chapter 53 and 56. I am in God's army and Christ is the Captain leading me. Everyday when I put my tag on, I am puttin gmyself on the front lines of this spiritual battle. It's such an amazing feeling and I feel honored to have been chosen and called as one of Christ's soldiers!
I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Grandma Nancy, Marlene Gallacher, Lauren Greenwood, Mom and Aunt Sandy for the packages! Thank you so much! And I love all the letters! Dearelders and hand written! Thank you thank you thank you everyone!!!
Lots of Love,
Sister Kendall Blake
