Dear Friends and Family,

This has been a week I’ll never forget! For the 4th of July we drove to Bethany, Oklahoma to meet up with some Sisters to watch a parade. We had a blast laughing at all the silly floats and people. Afterwards Sister Nicoll and I went to the Penn Square Mall to look at all the fun stores. About an hour into shopping we saw a giant flood starting to attack the mall! It was funny because we dramatically ran into Bath and Body Works before it got hit to smell all the yummy smells. We got the giggles pretty hard when we assumed that somebody clogged a toilet that wiped out the whole mall, can you imagine being that person?
After the mall we drove to a famous hole in the wall pizza shop called Empire to meet up with a lot of other missionaries. Then we all followed each other to Bricktown!! President Masnell approved for us to go to a Dodgers baseball game!! IT WAS THE BEST 4TH OF JULY EVER.

Anyhow, we have been seeing a lot of miracles too! 🙂 The other day we went tracting and saw a father and his son working on a 1965 Dodge car, so of course we asked them if they needed help (we know nothing about cars). We talked to them a little but they were pretty guarded.. until the next door neighbor came out smelling like weed and asked us a ton of questions!! It was super cool because we started teaching this high guy in his swim trunks the Plan of Salvation right next to this father and son while they worked on their car. The father was listening because after the neighbor showed us his gold dragon rings and we bore testimony hahah Charlie, asked us a question!! We told him about the Book of Mormon and he said he’d love to read it. We had his son, David read Moronis promise, where if you read The Book of Mormon and ask Heavenly Father if it’s true, He’ll let you know by the power of the Holy Ghost. Charlie started getting choked up and tears were forming in his eyes as his son read it!!! We can’t wait to go back this next week to see them!
This week I also bore my departing testimony at zone conference… I can’t believe I’ll be home in 3 weeks. My brother gave me awesome advice to read the end of the Saviors Ministry because even up until the end He stayed strong. I pray I’ll stay strong and work hard till the end with His help. ❤ I love y’all and I’ll see y’all soon. 🙂
Love Always,
Sister Long
