Hello 🍑 

How are yall? I can't believe how fast time has flown by. I have 9 weeks left 😳  NINE.  I haven't been counting down, but my lovely companion likes to remind me. 

Speaking of companion. I have a new one! Yep. There has been an ET in the mission and I am now companions with Sister Kinser. She is the cutest little thing and a hard worker. I'm lucky to be with her! Can y'all believe I have had 5 companions the last two transfers? Hopefully I don't get any more. I'll stick with Sister Kinser. I do miss my Sister Gifford though. Goodness, why do I have to love my companions so much! It makes it hard when they leave me.

So, the summer here in Georgia has been incredibly hot and humid. They're saying that it has been a record of 60 consecutive days that it has been over 90 degrees. But I think it's starting to cool down! We just have to stick it out till September (: 

We have been doing service for a lady named Miss Jane. She's the cutest old lady and we love her a lot. In fact, we love her so much that we want her to be a member of the church! BUT, she loves her church so much! It's one of those mega churches, called 12 Stone. Everyone goes to this church. And when I say everyone, I mean everyone! So we decided we would go with her to see what it's like. We actually loved it a lot! But it was a lot different. 


- They had a rock band. We have an organ. 
- Everyone came in street clothes. We wear our church clothes.
- They gave away doughnuts. We take the sacrament.
- The children are in a separate class the whole service. We like the children with us.
- They accept Christ publicly to be saved. We know we are already saved.
- They have lots of truth. We have the whole truth.

Those are just a couple I thought of. Haha we had lots of fun though. And because we went with her this week, she is coming with us next Sunday! #hallelujah. 

Being in the Bible Belt I have been able to attend lots of different churches! It's really interesting, and really fun to learn what other people believe. But there is something that I have noticed is missing from them all. The Spirit isn't as strong as it should be at church. I love coming to church each Sunday and feeling recharged. Feeling as though I have received direction and inspiration for the next thing I need to do in my life, or that week, or even that day. And of course, partaking of the sacrament each Sunday. It's so important to do this, to renew our covenants, and remember our Savior and His Atonement. How grateful I am to be in His true church and to help other people find their way home too. 

Love y'all! 

Love, Sister Merritt
