Choose the hard right not the easy wrong

 My beloved Family, I write unto you again that ye may know that I am yet alive; but I write somewhat of that which is grievous. And I began to be old, and saw that I must soon go down to the grave; wherefore I said unto my companion: Let me email my family, that I may share my love for them before I go down to my grave. For behold, my parents, my brothers and my sister, I cannot go down to my grave save I should leave a blessing upon you; for behold, I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go ye will not depart from it. But Behold, I would commend you to seek this Jesus of whom the prophets and apostles have written, that the grace of God the Father, and also the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of them, may be and abide in you forever. For the Lord God hath said that: Inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land; and inasmuch as ye will not keep my commandments ye shall be cut off from my presence. And now I, Sister Fisher , bid farewell unto the St. Louisites, yea, and also unto my fellow missionaries whom I love, until we shall meet before the judgment-seat of Christ. And only a few have I written, because of my weakness in writing. 
And now I bid unto all, farewell. I soon go to rest in the land of endless P-Days. Until my family and I shall again reunite, and I am brought forth triumphant through the air, to meet you before the pleasing gate of the Calgary Airport. And I make an end of my writing upon this email, which writing has been small; and to the reader I bid farewell, hoping that much of my family may read my words. Brothers and Sisters, adieu.
Haha Well enough of that.

I hope you enjoyed all the pictures. we had a fun week.Monday we spent some time in St.Louis at the Gateway arch and getting frozen custard at Ted Drewes. Frozen custard is kinda a big thing here. We also found some new investigators this week! We met this one guy named Nathan. He has been recovering from being a heroin addicted and this one time he overdosed and had a near death experience. He was sharing with us that he definitely believes in the after life and it kinda scared him so he changed his life. Kinda like Alma the Younger. He was able to read that story in the Book of Mormon and relate to it a lot. It was cool. We talked a lot about the Plan of Salvation with him and he believed all of it. We were just able to put his beliefs into words for him :) He is a really cool guy.
I loooved this week it has just been very spiritual. On wednesday we were able to go to the temple! Our mission president challenges the return missionaries to visit the temple when they go home and take a selfie with it and send it back to them so we will have to plan a trip for when I come home! And then Conference!!! I loved president Monsons talk. It was short but I feel like it was just perfect for me. Since I have to make a lot of choices soon. Also the people I watched conference with are from Alberta Canada and they have Leavitts and Quentin's in their family and I told them that I had some Quentin's in my family and so we brought out the pedigree charts and yup we are related through James Quentin on Grandma's side. Pretty cool!
I am SO excited to see you guys on monday! I have absolutely loved my mission but I am ready to come home and see all of you and give you big hugs! And it will be another good week of hard missionary work! 
Missions are awesome.
Love Britt
