Two days later I had the distinct impression I should try looking one more time. So I walked back down to the area. When I got near the place where I fell, I realized how impossible it was to find a tiny set of car keys that flew out of my purse into a big field.

That day I gave a tour to a young couple with a small baby. At the end, the husband shared a beautiful quote he had read recently from Brigham Young. It was exactly what I was looking for! I asked him to text it to me. It was a direct answer to prayer and added significantly to the spirit in the site.
The young sister missionaries returned this week from being outbound and new ones from the MTC came in. There are 22 of them, and they are like angels - so sweet and filled with the spirit.
My companions and I went to Montrose, straight across the river from Nauvoo, for our preparation day. It was such a beautiful day.

Three days ago I woke up with a burst of energy and the clear direction to update the Brigham Young Home Site Book (where I am the site leader). With the Lord's help I did it, and Pres Blair from the mission presidency has been reviewing it as a model for other sites.
It was really cold and windy the day I was assigned wagon tours where you narrate for an hour straight, but the Lord blessed me to do the wagon tours with no kidney pain - a miracle - and very little coughing.
I have made it through three 7:00 am choir practices and 3 Rendezvous performances without coughing at all. The night I was assigned to play the piano for Rendezvous my injured hand was strengthened, and I played well.
I have been reminded of Elder D Todd Christofferson's talk "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread." I am understanding how important it is for me to do all I can, then put my trust in the Lord and wait on His timing. He will take care of me and insure that I serve Him in every needful way - one day at a time. He will provide for my daily needs.
I love you! Have a great week!
I am sitting here in amazement tonight. I have been so sick much of this week again. On top of the nasty sporadic cough I have had for over 3 weeks and my sprained hand, in the last 3 or 4 days I have developed a kidney stone as a side effect from the medicine the doctor gave me. Sometimes I have asked What next? Will I ever get well?

I'm still coughing, so I can't really give many tours. So many new missionaries have arrived, and I have been home so much that I almost feel lost in the crowd. I did get another priesthood blessing and I'm sure that will help.
I got my two new companions on Friday. Their names are Sister Marlene Simmons (on the left) and Sister Nancy Rollins (on the right). I love them and have really enjoyed getting to know them. I hope you have a great week!
