Dear family and friends,
I always thought that every missionary who said they cannot believe another week has passed since they last emailed was just kidding, but it is totally true! haha! As usual, though, there is so much to say and so little time. But I will try my best to get everything in that I can.
Another great experience that happened this week took me by surprise!!!! Each missionary is given a sacrament meeting topic every week, and throughout the week we are supposed to prepare a talk in our language that helps us learn to focus our study time and so we can use sometime throughout our missions. Every Sunday, though, the branch president, just after sacrament finishes, announces which two missionaries in the zone will address the rest during sacrament meeting. Haha so guess what?! I got chosen to speak! Oh my I was so nervous!!! But to my surprise, I was able to stand in front of forty other French speaking missionaries and deliver a talk...in French.:) It was the most incredible experience, and even though my legs were shaking so so bad! I felt the power of the Holy Ghost speak through me. French is a beautiful language, and it's incredible to see how much I am learning in such a short amount of time, but it was such an increadible and humbling experience to feel Him working through me, strenghtening me and strengthening the other missionaries I serve with.
Rember to be a light. There is someone somewhere who needs your help. Pray for guidance to know where to find them. And always remember to smile.:)
I love you with all of my heart, Sister Laura Lee Judd
