Happy New Year everyone! I have only about 5 minutes left of emailing time so I will sum up my week in bullet points this time. But first, the big news….
I’M GOING OUTBOUND! On New Year’s Eve, they announced the sisters who are going outbound. There are 31 of us and 17 are leaving from my class. This is crazy. I’m excited but also super nervous at the same time! On Monday morning, they’ll tell us where we’re going and for how long and then on Wednesday morning, I leave to my new area! There are so many things that I need to get done before I leave but I’m trying hard not to stress about it.
- We went to the BYU Museum of Art yesterday! And we took a tour of BYU campus. It was weird being back in Provo and I could see the nerd’s apartment….we drove right by it. We went to see the artwork that was being displayed and it was all about our Savior. I don’t really understand art but I can appreciate it and we had someone explaining each painting to us, which was awesome.
- I saw Jeremy’s family this week! My mission president gave me permission to take them on a tour and that was probably the most I have ever had to rely on the Spirit since my mission. I was literally spiritually exhausted and drained after that.
- New Year’s Eve was fun! We just spent it as a mission and got to stay up til like 11 pm….we did a fake little countdown and pretended it was midnight. Thanks to the Bray Family for our little NYE treats!
Anyways, I miss and love you all! The next time I write to you will be from a different state! How crazy is that?!
Love, Sister Olivia Ying
