*insert clever subject line here*

Hiiiiiiiiiiiii :) 

Welp. It seems like another week has come and gone and I'm again sitting at the computer next to the fireplace trying to compose my thoughts into a coherent email that I hope will make you all smile :) This week flew by! It was a good one. But, to be honest. I don't remember much of it. hahaha

Halloween was great. Best one yet! #ihatehalloween We spent some time in the afternoon in Dixon and then helped out at the ward trunk-or-treat. The nostalgia was SO real. I thought trunk-or-treats were the coolest things ever when I was little. Let's be real, I still do. Sister Wright and I manned the chili and fry bread inside the church and ended up judging the chili competition. I. Ate. So. Much. It was wonderful :) haha We were only allowed to be out until 6, so we spent the remainder of the night studying :) Guess what. This week I read from Mosiah 27 to 4th Nephi. I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON. I think I read 30 chapters in Alma the night of Halloween. SO GOOD. :) I'll hopefully finish by Thanksgiving :) That way I will have feasted on His word AND on mashed potatoes. :) hahaha 

I've always believed that God has a sense of humor, but I was able to see it up close this last week. Elder Sedig assigned me to give a discussion on patience in district meeting this week. I prepared as best as I could and I was really excited to talk about it with the other missionaries....and then....we ran out of time. SO. We all have to have "patience" to hear my discussion next week. ha...haha...ha. I'm really glad I got an extra week to study it though. Understanding patience has been much needed! What I've learned is that patience is essential to be happy and learn everything that we need to here on this earth. There will be many moments where we will be instructed to wait patiently. I've had to wait to get better. Wait to understand why I was sick for so long. Wait to go to the temple again. Wait for people to listen. Wait for a less active member to walk into church. It seems like all we do as missionaries is wait! BUT. Waiting is much different when it's not paired with patience. When I think of waiting I think of sitting, not doing much. Patiently waiting is an act of faith. An ACT. We have to go and do. In Preach my Gospel it says that patience is the ability to hold up under pressure. I want to do that. I really enjoyed this quote by Neal A. Maxwell, "When we are impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best--better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than his." Patience is allowing God to lead you and willingly letting him guide you. 

So, I'm working on patience :) It's starting to get cold out here so I'm headed to Missoula today to buy alllll the warm things! No snow yet, just lots of rain! I love you all! I love being a missionary. :) Smile. Be happy. Don't eat too much candy. ALSO. Stop with this "sending Sister Fletcher candy" nonsense. hahahahahaha I love ya'll but I'm going to become a statistic out here if this candy continues to be a thing. ;) Thus, Sister Wright and I are going on a sugar fast. Patience and no sugar. Wish me luck.

Love ya'll!
Love, Sister Fletcher

there was a crazy storm the other day. The sky. So. Cool. Had to break out the pano.

  2. I have to agree with Debbie. I'm going to have to learn to have patience as I wait for warm weather again! You will do great with your lesson!! Have an awesome week a Sister Fletcher!
