Dear Family and Friends,

So many little miracles happened this week and my heart is so full. This week we were blessed with a lot of little successes. We found some investigators in the 1st ward and our prayers are being answered. Sister Pohahau and I are having the time of our lives. I love that girl. She is teaching me so much and I am so incredibly happy.

I am running our of time, but I just want to express my gratitude to my Father in Heaven for all that He has blessed me with. This is the first time in my life I have felt His love and His spirit so much. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. We had the opportunity to speak at Bridgeview Care Center (a nursing/assisted living home. #thisone'sforyoudad #oldpeoplerock.) Since there  are so many members there, they have their own sacrament meeting and 15th ward is in charge of it. We spoke about missionary work #myfavorite and I just loved getting to meet all these faithful Saints. I felt so at home:) We also got to teach Sunday school all about the Sabbath day. It really just hit me of how important it is to keep the Sabbath Day holy. Because Heavenly Father has given me so so much and the least we can do is give Him one day of the week. That is why I love being a missionary because every day is like the Sabbath and we just get to feel the spirit all the time and have no other distractions. I love it. I love being away from the world, away from my cell phone and all the stupid little distractions that get in the way of what is really important. #nevercominghome #missionaryforlife. :)

This week we had an AMAZING zone conference. The theme: Eternal Marriage/Families. #whatthewhat? So weird for a group of missionaries. But we talked a lot about the family proclamation and the doctrine of the family. We watched some really inspiring videos and talked about how our missions are preparing us for our eternal families and spouses. That we are learning how to become eternal companions. It was so awesome! And the longer I am here, I am realizing more and more that this really is for my eternal family. I am scared to death to have children and raise them in today's world. But my mission is spiritual ammo for motherhood and I'll take all I can get! :) #RMmama #thegospelisawesome. I just love all that I am learning here and how it is preparing me for the last days and to be able to raise my family. I don't think I would be the person I am now if I hadn't have gone on a mission. I just look back at how this was my plan all along and even though I made mistakes along my journey, that He has always been leading me here.

The people here are still amazing. I have fallen in love with Idaho and the people. This week wasn't super eventful, just a lot of work and it was great! I feel so blessed and so grateful. Heavenly Father is looking out for us. I'M SO HAPPY. The Gospel is true. Life is good. I love you all. I feel your prayers and your love everyday. Have a great week! Sending my love 
Love Sister Bigs

P.S. I was looking back on some journal entries from early on in my mission and I seriously think I am loopy when I write:
For Example:
Heavely Father took away our car, and gave us sucky beach cruisers.
But then He made Jake want to be baptized. He's pretty legit. 
Haha. #whyamIsoweird. 

Or, Missionary=Therapist. I feel like I'm in some sort of secret gang that just knows everyone's lives and secrets. I don't know how many times I have hears, "Don't tell anyone I told you." or "I really shouldn't be telling you this, but.." #missionlife
