Week 3!

Here is Terilyn's most recent email that came in today. She also wanted me to add her address in case someone wanted to write her a letter via snail mail, so here it is:
Sister Terilyn Humphrey

Sorry, no pictures this week.

Thanks for all your prayers and support!

Okay, I only have 5 minutes to write this, so it'll have to be fast! How was everyone's fourth of July!? Great? I hope so!
This week has been like my own little rollercoaster ride. I got to meet my new mission president and his wife; they're amazing! Can't wait to get to know them more. My companion and I faced a lot of rejection and yelling this week. Apparently some people really don't like missionaries, but that's okay! Now we know who doesn't want to learn more, even though that's sad, too. It truly does feel like you're handing out a million dollars for free and people are just stomping on it. It's your salvation, people! But that's okay. The more rejection we face, the greater the joy we'll have when we meet people ready to learn more! And we got to! We met the sweetest girl last Thursday or Friday who is 20 years old and going to college as well as working two part-time jobs. She's just a sweet girl and she wants to learn more! I'll have to let you know how that goes next week. And we picked up a new investigator! Her name is Michaela, and she's 18. Her mom is a devote Methodist and her dad is Lutheran, but she's still undecided because she doesn't know which church holds the most truth. SO, we got to teach her about the restoration, and although she's skeptical, she's willing to pray about it and read the Book of Mormon. And I know the Spirit will be able to testify to her that these things are true if she's ready to listen to Him. I got to watch FIREWORKS! That was fun! We had a little party at a member's home and she let us eat all her chocolate haha. The view from their deck is absolutely perfect for fireworks, and we got to stay out until 10:30, so that was cool. Today I got to play some Laser tag as a zone activity! Way fun! it's way different here than it is in Utah, which is weird because it's the same game, but it's true! It takes more skill here... which means I sucked haha, but not too bad! I'm a better shot that I thought I'd be! Anyway, that's totally not mission related. Well, I wish I could write more, but I really am all out of time. Just know that The Church is true! The book is (sometimes) blue, and GOD LOVES YOU! I really wish I could share more because so much more happened, but I can't. Hopefully I'll be able to play catch-up in my next email home because lots happened! Okay, this is goodbye. I love you all! You're great people who continue to inspire me. Keep it up :)
