April 22, 2009

To My Bestest Family and Frineds!
So as I knew it would happen, the flowers have started to bloom here in Connecticut! This place is gorgeous and it reminds me so much of Minnesota and Idaho! My e-mail was totally all over the place last week but here is how the my April showers have brought some flowers!!:) (There is always more to come!) So I moved to Stamford last Wednesday and totally felt like I was at home:) Our apartment was so big and had a washer and dryer inside of it! I could not believe it! We did not have to pay money for laundry and wait for our clothes to be done anymore! Well after I had settled in the apartment with Sister Sturm (who is from Rexburg IDAHO!) and we were DRIVING to an appointment, we got a call that we were moving since it was only the 2 of us and the Elders needed the apartment we were in since there lease was up! So yesterday we spent the entire day with the Elders moving everything out into our cute new little apartment! It is only Sister Sturm and I and I am totally used to being with 4-6 other Sisters but we love our "closeness!" We have no other choice:) We no longer have a washer and dryer but our apartment is adorable and we love the spirit that abides there! (Not like it didn't in Stamford!) So now we live in our area and are even closer to a Walmart, Costco, Target, etc! I truly feel like I am in a whole new world! We get to teach in homes where people have a yard, don't have to lock their doors, and are very receptive to the gospel! (I like to think so anyway:)) We continue to search for people but not by comtacting on the street...we get to walk house to house or find people who are walking to there car! My first day here I was in shock! I told Sister Strum to pull over at one point because I got SO excited when I saw someone walking down the street! She thinks I am crazy and I just laugh it off! When we pull up to a stop light and I see the person in the car next to us, all I can think about is "they need this gospel and can I get it to them in a quite dignity fashionable way?!?" Sister Sturm always will tell me with out me even saying a word..."Don't worry they will get it one day." I sometimes just want to be like WHATEVER and then basically I get to tell her that by just rolling down the window and talking to them about the church! What an adjustment from Manhattan! My oh my! Sister Sturm and I are alike in some ways but so different in others! Each day I learn something new and try my best to be like Jesus! I'll keep you:) Currently we are teaching a couple who is getting married May 2nd and Shanee will be getting baptized May 3rd! Miracles sure do happen no matter where we are!:)
Well I love you all so much and until next week...XOXO!
Love always,
Sister Miller

To My Dearest Family and Friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful day and had a Happy Easter!!! Did the Easter bunny come?? He came here 1 too many times for Sister Wadsworth and I!:) It seems hard to believe it was over a year ago I opened my mission call and found I was coming to the BEST mission on Earth!
Well these last 2 days I have had the most humbling experience on my mission and I am completely shocked. For the first time is my mission history I did not e-mail home and talk about thoughts of being transfered because I was convinced Sister Wadsworth and I were staying. I'm absolutely shocked to say that we got a phone call monday night for transfers and Elder Raymond told me to pack my bags. The tears started flowing and I felt like it was starting to rain and then I wondered if my April showers would bring may flowers. Because there are so few sisters I figured out where I was going and it was confirmed today and I was transferred to Connecticut. I was SHOCKED! Sure enough my April showers have already brought forth May flowers and I feel so good about being here. Its a whole new world and I continue to sing that unapproved song in my head over and over. I can't wait to tell you all the details of all the miracles that will happen. Until next week....I love you all, XOXO!
Love always,
Sister Miller

To My Wonderful Family and Friends!
AHH!! How I wish I could just call throughout the day and just tell you every little thing that happens in my life but I am grateful to be able to e-mail!
I got Tara's e-mail today telling me about Maria having Kellen and I am so so excited to be an Auntie again!! How precious! I love it! This week Dave had his baptism and my heart was just filled with joy to see where he is at in is life and to have had the desire to know and know that this church is true. He is so amazing in so many ways and Sister Wadsworth and I are so grateful for "our Dave"! He does so much for us all of the time and loves to feed the missionaries as he knows we are far away from home. The April Showers have already started and if April flys by as fast as March I will my life even more?!
Well I love you all soo much and until next time...I hope you have a fabuolous week!XOXO!
Love always, Sister Miller
