"Sacrificing Something Ordinary for Something Extraordinary"

Mom and Dad!
  What a joy it was to get your package on Saturday. It came at the moment I needed it most. You really know what I need...everything in there was perfect and came as answers to many prayers. :) This past week has been a testimony of how much the Lord watches over me. On Saturday I saw that I did not have a $5 bill, I only had a $20, and I did not know how I would break it to pay fast offerings. The thought came to mind, "Take no thought for what ye shall eat, drink or say;" and within the next hour a guy came up to Elder Robinson and I and gave each of us a $5 bill.

On Tuesday I saw smoke coming from behind one of the mountains--which was from the Alpine fire. It has been a very interesting summer here.

Ok, I went to walmart and can't believe that they are already doing the Back to School shopping and sales!! Crazy...feels like I just got here. I totally agree with you about time and how fast it is going. Some nights I lay down and think to it really July and my 3rd transfers in two weeks! It blows my mind...even more so when I can now tell people I have been out …
