Sister Westover

Letter on Friday:
Oi!!!! I miss you all dearly and send my love and prayers!

Sounds like things are starting to pick up and I'm so glad to here that everyone is happy!! It's so weird to think that the fam is living in a NEW HOUSE! Ah crazy!!  I started crying when I read that Kona is missing so please please let me know if he comes home! I'm praying for him!!! :( 

I'm so excited for Ryan and think about him often!! He is going to be amazing!  I see Lindsey all the time so that is so so fun!  I have gotten so close to all the amazing people I get to see everyday!  I see Halie Lewis like every day too so that is always a lovely little surprise.  Sister Hardester and I are like the same person... we always do the exact same thing at the exact same time and then just start laughing because we are always so similar.  I'm going to miss her so much!

Okay so my temporary reassignment consists of the coast of Virginia, the coast of North Carolina and part of Delaware! I'm so so excited to get there!!! I've heard that it is beautiful and I just feel good about it :).  I'm one of the last to leave from my district but Elder Preciado, Elder Kinney, Elder Carrillo and I all leave at like 3:30 in the morning on Wednesday so at least I've got some of my buddies with me!  I'm going to miss my companion so much!!  Sister Stone and I started, and ended, as two completely different people but we have grown to be able to work as one companionship and that is a testament to me of the power of service and prayer!  I love her more than I ever thought I could and I'm so grateful for the charity that I can feel for others.  I'm going to miss my district all so much! They are so fun and funny and are some of the strongest individuals I've ever met.  I was pretty dang lucky to end up in this district and I'm certain that I will be good friends with them for a long time!  I seriously am humbled to be in their presence each day and to hear their insights and experiences and testimonies and I have grown to love them all so much!  I am the only one going to Virginia Chesapeake mission so here is everyone elses reassignments:
Sister Stone: Vancouver Washington
Sister Hardester: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Sister Nielson: Charlotte, North Carolina
Elder Preciado: Minnesota (Sister Amis is going here too! I lover her!)
Elder Evans: Twin Falls, Idaho
Elder Petitta: got his visa!!!!!! headed to Porto Alegre Brazil!!!
Elder Kinney: LA, California
Elder Carrillo: Tacoma, Washington
Elder Marcum: Chicago West, Illinois
Elder Cotton: Chicago West, Illinois
Elder Seawell: Charlotte, North Carolina

My thoughts for the week:
Watch the "will of God" mormon message

and Mountains to Climb:
I have never, and probably never again will, put all that I have and give all of myself over to God and as hard as it is to think of what I have potentially lost I am in awe and continually amazed at how much more I will gain.  I know that God is aware of each of us.  He is our Heavenly Father and he knows us personally.  He wants us to be happy and He is waiting to pour out blessings on us.  We are so blessed.

Com muito Amor,
Sister Brittany Westover

P.S. Try a little harder to be a little better
