What the heck?!!!! It seemed like days were going by sooooo slow the first couple of weeks and now weeks go by like minutes. It is way too crazy. Well the Portuguese is coming a little faster and I'm getting a little more nervous, but no matter what I know that the language will come when it should and the nerves will go away once I really start working out in the field.
Guess what? Elder Holland, his wife, and his son came and spoke to us!!!!! How blessed am I?!!! There is a very special spirit around the apostles. It was really cool!

Dear Family,Can I just say the Lord is amazing. I have had so many wonderful devotionals that have kept me happy and upbeat. The Spirit is better than ever, doing all the work as usual but I am so amazed at how different I already am. Two weeks feels like two years in learning and understanding, I feel so blessed.

This is not a letter from Taylor but it is about the last letter she sent. It is a copy of a post on her cousin Abigail's medical blog. Abigail is Taylor's cousin. She battled cancer from the age of 18 months until just past her fourth birthday. She passed away this last summer. After reading this post I just thought how intricately the Lord is involved in our lives and the lives of others. He is aware of each one of us and often will bless us through the words and deeds of another. Especially in the case of a missionary. Their sole purpose is to bless the lives of others. I just assumed that Sister Goss would bless the people of Cape Verde. How tender that her first act of blessing another as a missionary came to someone so close to her heart and home.
Sister Goss took a floral design class her Senior year. We stayed up all night to make this arrangement for Abigail's funeral service. We tried to include some of her favorite things. We hope she liked it! Now onto the post from Abigail's mom…..
