Grateful for time in the Heartland

Dear Family and Friends,                                                     July 20, 2015

This week was awesome! It flew by in what felt like just a little over a day! We saw so many miracles this week. I think my favorite was the fact that Miriam didn't let being tired stop her from coming to church, and Maddy came for sacrament even though her fiance woke up with a super infected eye, she told him he had to wait an hour before she would take him to the ER because she knew she needed to go to at least sacrament meeting! 
We also were given two new referrals from the elders who both turned into really solid new investigators. Especially Stephanie really shines and we both feel will be a kingdom builder, she is a very elect lady! The week grade wise was in the A's all week which was awesome too. I really am working the hardest I have ever worked, and feel like nothing is holding me back, so we just get up and work, and it feels amazing!
I love Kansas so much, it is crazy how much I love it. It is a night and day contrast to how I felt when I first came to Kansas. When I first got here, I didn't really like how it looked or the culture of Wichita, now I love them both and wish I could stay here in the heart land. I really am not looking forward to being surrounded by mountains again, but it is where Heavenly Father has my next "AREA" all prepared for me to work in. 
We got to go out to the Pikes again this week and do some service, I love being out on their little farm so much, it makes me quite happy and content with life. I think the best part about being out away from the city is you really feel how Satan has less hold and power out there, and that is a wonderful feeling!
The days and weeks are fast passing by, but everyday feels like two with how much we are able to do in it, but the weeks go by as if only a day or two of time have passed, it is a really odd feeling. Time is such a strange thing. It honestly freaks me out that I will have been on a mission 18 months this Wednesday, I blows my mind. It feels like a lifetime ago I went into the MTC, but at the same time it doesn't feel like 18 months could have passed. I am EXTREMELY grateful for the time I have been given in the Heartland, and am grateful for the many days and moments I still have left in Kansas to make an impact! 

Love you all, and see you WAY TOO SOON!
