I sincerely LOVE my district though. We have so much fun. Haha we are laughing all the time. I've already learned to love every single one of them. There are only 4 soeurs and 6 elders. So we feel a little dominated. But they are all so great. Although sometimes they do a lot of things that REALLY remind me they are 18 year old boys...haha. Only one is 19. But we have one Elder from Germany and one from Madrid! Poor Elder Ruiz. He speaks practically no English. But he is working so hard. But he is honestly one of the sweetest Elder's I've ever met. He has such a sweet spirit about him. He is always making us laugh.
The French is coming along great! The lessons have been pretty tough though. I super suuuper love our first investigator though. His name is Nicholas! (Nick-O-LA) He's just a member volunteering at the MTC. I think. Unless they tricked me. But he is the sweetest. He is so understanding of our absolutely terrible French. Haha. And he is in such a great place to teach! He talks about how he really has no idea who Jesus Christ or God are at all. And so we spend a lot of time just explaining everything to him. The lessons are always fun because he is super nice. Although super stressful. The gift of tongues is 100% real. I literally walk out of the lessons, turn to Soeur Bragg and say "Ummm...what did I just say?" And she's like "Man I don't know but it sounded great!" Haha I am still sooooo far from learning. I don't even understand everything he says back to us. And I can't answer all his questions like I wish I could. But I sure am working really hard. French is seriously the blessed. I feel insanely lucky to be learning SUCH a beautiful language. Praying in French is the best thing ever. I feel the spirit SO strongly when I do. It's so much fun.The devotionals here are awesome and I've learned so much already. It's insane how much I learn every single day. My testimony is growing so much more than I thought it could. It's so cool here how you can LITERALLY feel angels surrounded about you. Every second. It's so funny, because I honestly don't feel like myself anymore. I am literally Sister Magleby. Nothing but a mouth piece for the Lord. A tool in his hands. BUT by being so, I feel more like myself than I ever have before. It's hard to explain. But I can literally feel myself fulfilling a calling that was predestined for me. I know for a fact this is exactly what I'm supposed to be doing right now.
And I couldn't be happier. It's so so hard. But so much fun. I love you guys so much!! Thank you for all the letters. They mean so much to me!! I really get so excited to read them every night. I feel your prayers and I am so grateful for them. I'm praying for you.
