hey hey kids.
second to last email from sister egbert. isnt that weird. it sounds like you are all pretty excited for next week. and guess what.. so is this girl. i got my flight plans in the post the other day and that was pretty weird. it made it almost real all of the sudden. but it still feels kind of fake. but its real. really real.
you all sound like you are doing really great though. which makes me happy! if you are happy.. i am happy. but yeah. i love hearing about the fun things that you are doing and your fun lives. its great.
this week in wolverhampton things have been going well. the horvats are doing pretty great. we are a bit gutted because lukas cant be baptized next week. but its going to be ok. hopefully we get things sorted for his next baptismal date which is the 23rd of august. they are an amazing family. i dont know if i have told you much about them. but they are a part member, less active family that just moved into our area. they are wonderful. they want SO badly to go to the temple and be together forever. they are doing amazing things. especially with the word of wisdom and daily prayer slash scripture study. they are just a diligent family. and thy fed us czech food last week which was really quite good. chicken liver and manna (which is kind of like baby food).
one other way cool thing that happened this week was jenny and andrew and alga and harry. so we met jenny a few weeks ago while she and her son harry were planning on the bridge over the canal. we stopped to chat with them and talked for quite awhile. they are great. we gave jenny a book of mormon and harry a cars plaster because he smashed his finger. but then she flogged our appointment. but we stopped by this week to see them and they let us right in. andrew is her husband and alga is her mother. they are great. super into spiritualism and tai chi but so so nice. and i told jenny that we have the same name.. so she always calls me jennifer. (hey its sister egbert.) haha. but they are amazing. we hope to be able to keep teaching them more and just get them into the gospel. they would love it and it would love them! they want to skype when i get home! pretty cool all of these people that i get to be friends with. i wish you could know them all because they are amazing!
i love being a missionary. and serving the lord. i love that i can learn so much and help other people come closer to christ. its amazing to see people progress and feel their testimonies become stronger. this work is the work of the lord, that is for sure.
i have so so many stories to tell you.. but i am going to save them for next week. is that ok? i love you all and am so excited to see you soon!! have a great week! you are amazing and i think you are the best family ever.. because well you are.
love you kids. keep on keeping on.
