October just started, and things are well in order for me to become a full-time missionary. My dad and I bought a bunch of luggage last night. One of them is like a closet on wheels; Lanny said that would come in handy (since I’ll be living in places often referred to as a “dump”).
I’m becoming best friends with all the people I work with, too. I’m trying to get to know the people better so I can practice sharing the gospel with them. It’s working so far! I see one guy in the gym all the time and he comes over by my office every now and then. Laura came in really excited today and said he was asking about me- she stressed that he was single and good-looking ;) Although that is totally not my focus right now (disregarding the fact that he’s in his mid 30’s), I think that gives me a good “in”. Flirt to convert, right? Hah! Just kidding!! (…well, as a missionary I’m kidding, as Brittany Mayhugh, I am not.)
Everything is going beautifully and preparation for the mission couldn’t be better! I have everything I could ever need at my fingertips and a loving family to support me in all I do. The church is so very true and I’m excited to devote all my time and energy into proclaiming that simple, essential notion.
