HOLA FROM MEMPHIS!!!!!!
Holy cow. We have officially crossed from "yeah maybe I could use a cardigan" to "absolutely not." It's so humid!!! But the ridiculous thing is that I like it ... AH! I probably won't be saying that mid July but right now it's kind of fun. Like as we sit here in our apartment I'm breaking a sweat and I feel like I'm taking a hot shower but hey, it's great. I was sad to leave Russellville because I love so so many people there! There are a lot of sweet angels that blessed my life so much and really helped us out a ton. And there were a lot of people I didn't get to say goodbye to either! But all is well because Memphis is super super great!!
|We have arrived.|
We are on a double bike week because the car was crashed, so we have been biking EVERYWHERE. Maybe it's like not that much to other people but going from full car for a month and a half to biking 15 + miles a day is crazy and actually refreshing because I've always enjoyed bike week. (Mostly, I like it because it means we are exempt from running for exercise in the morning because we are too tired, haha! But also it's fun to be out and about and talk to everyone.) Anyway, we were biking home from an appointment we just had at about 9:05ish the other night. (Side note: the sidewalks here are decent on some streets but there are random cement slots that just for some reason are holes and they come out of nowhere. And there's glass, branches, trees, barbed wire, frogs, and bumps all over the place.) We were cruisin' on home and we stopped at a light and realized Hermana Lewis had a flat tire! So we stopped and pumped it up and we could hear the hiss and feel it, it was a giant hole. So we decided to just pump it up real good and ride like the wind to make it over this big hill and then we could walk the rest of the way as needed. I ain't never seen nobody ride so fast! Haha It was funny until we came to one of those random pieces of sidewalk that just wasn't there and it is right as you are coming down a hill. So, Hermana Lewis couldn't stop in time because I would have run into her and she would have flipped over or something so she hit it and the books in her basket went flying (not to mention the new ward roster that was just printed out) and we scrambled to pick everything up before it got damaged from the RAIN that just started pouring.

|Was the best meal oh my gosh.|

I'm so happy here and I love the gospel!! There are some amazing people here in Memphis! The Hermanas here have done good work and there are a lot of people ready to accept the gospel! And the members seem really awesome, too. We have made it our goal to be full faith missionaries this transfer.
I recently read 2 Nephi 2:6. It says that Christ is FULL of grace and truth. Nothing can penetrate him, there is no room for evil or for temptation. Any temptations or distractions that come his way are deflected because he is full to the brim of grace and truth! I think that's such a cool concept to be so full and so consecrated that nothing but goodness comes from it.
I hope all is well and dry there in Utah and wherever you other people are. :) I love the gospel, I love the scriptures, I love my family, I love Memphis, and I'm so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ!
