" When we are grateful to God in our circumstances, we can experience gentle peace in the midst of tribulation. In grief, we can still lift up our hearts in praise. In pain, we can glory in Christ's Atonement. In the cold of bitter sorrow, we can experience the closeness and warmth of heaven's embrace." President Uchtdorf " Grateful in Any Circumstances" I love this I am trying to be more sincere in my gratitude. Especially in my prayers. I have been praying for the specific food that I have in front of me. Which sometimes seems funny when I say " I am so grateful for the cheerios" but I really have noticed a difference in my prayers and how much more grateful I am!Just a quick reminder that transfers are next week. the 26th of June. So p-day will be on Wednesday.
Later in the week when we went back to campus we had a youth come with us so that we could split up and talk to twice as many people. It was so much fun. It is like getting the best of both worlds here in Athens I have met people from Ghana, Brazil, China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia. It has been so wonderful. It is like getting a taste of each culture all while being in Athens, Ohio. I love it. I am so excited for this next week so that we can try and teach all of these great people. It has been a really great week. We have found so many people. I know that it is because Heavenly Father is answering our fast and prayers from us and all the ward members.
Today we had a district fun day. We played ultimate frisbee and soccer. While we were playing it decided to rain. Wait no let me take that back. It started to pour. We were all soaked within minutes. It was a blessing though because it is so hot and humid. It was so funny. Sister Tueller and I were the only sisters there today and for some reason everyone thought I was doing really well at sports today. They started calling me "the wall" Um ha ha I dont think it was a fat joke. but maybe. ha get it zWALLen like that ha oh elders they are something else. It was a lot of fun though.
