Alma 29:9

"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yeah, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."
Alma 29:9

"Good Morning!....You're about to call in sick"


Greetings from Washington!! (Well...Canonsburg if you want to be specific 😉) if you haven't watched "Hot Pockets" by Jim Gaffigan in a while...go watch of it and think of me 😂

We spent all of Monday in Pittsburgh with the Ritz's which was a blast!! (More pictures to come...eventually...) More goodbyes Monday night and Tuesday...some of the hardest I've ever had to say. Every time I leave an area, it's like leaving home and family all over again. I don't like it one bit! Good thing I'll probably be here for the last while and won't have to face another transfer move for a bit. (Since I've gotten to this area, everyone has been asking me how long I've been out. When I tell them 14 1/2 months, they're like, "oh, so this is probably you're last stop then!" Agh!! I don't like this at all. How in the world did this happen?!? Time is just flying at the speed of light and I can't even keep up. Not cool. At all. Anywhoosers...)

I got sick with a really nasty cold this week so we really didn't do much. I spent a lot of time sleeping/resting/taking it easy...which is the worst as a missionary because you feel like the laziest human on earth. But it needed to happen. I am slowly getting better though. Thank goodness for Priesthood blessings! (and Musinex and Ricola's and vitamin C 😉) I am also slowly meeting investigators, less-active members, and members of the ward, so that's good! I definitely miss Pitt 3rd and the people there more than I can even say, but this is gonna be good. I can feel it.  

Sister Kelley is super awesome!! She's got this greenie fire that I definitely need right now!! I love her so much. ❤ It definitely has been humbling to be with someone who's only been out 3 months and is leading out the area. The Lord is teaching me a lot. Some of which has been humbly complying to His will, and acknowledging Him constantly for my need of His divine help. Though I feel and know I am so weak, He is making me strong. I know that He really does give us what we need when we need it. I definitely need some humbling, and this is a great opportunity for Heavenly Father to help me in that area.

Well fam bam, I wish I had more to update you on, but I don', keep on keepin' on!! Remember who you are and that a sister missionary in Pennsylvania LOVES YOU TONS!!!!! ❤

"Keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow, and forever." (Elder Jeffrey R. Holland)

All my love,
Sister Bartlett xoxo
