Time for another missionary post :)

Another three months gone  by and it's time for another missionary post! (ok I've been a little busy, it's been four months haha sorry)

So Logan has been doing pretty good for the last few months.  He's been back in Regina, and working hard as always. He's had some investigators, and even a baptism. His companions have been good. He's with one of  the only missionaries older than him, so he'll be seniority status in his mission coming up here in the next few months. Other than that, it's the same as usual, knocking on doors, studying, meeting with people, being a crazy boy. He has had more success than last time I wrote, so that's good. He got a profile! If you want to read it go to this link:  
It also inspired me to do some missionary work of my own, since I meet so many people who don't know about our church. I made my own profile, you can see it here: It's been awesome cuz now I'm doing some missionary work and he gives me advice and can help me out. I am learning to appreciate everything he's doing so much more.

I did get to talk to him on Mothers day, that was amazing. The best part was that once we started talking we realized that nothing has changed between us at all.  We were just laughing and teasing the entire phone call and talking like he was home again, and everything was back to normal.   We are the same silly, crazy Becca and Logan best friends that has always been. I miss that more than anything, so that was so neat to know that we are still just as in love as ever and he hasn't turned into an alien lol. 

So the last three months the waiting has mostly been the same...long and lonely, but I've learned that I can't sit and dwell on it. We are both just working hard and keeping the time passing. Me and Log are just living our life to the fullest and making the most of everyday. We are put in these places for a reason, and as much as I miss Log, I know we have both grown a ton and I'm happy we have had this time to prepare us and strengthen us in our relationship and as people.

Being here in Florida helps me see how hard a mission must be. I'm really proud of Logan. I never realized how hard it was to go somewhere where you don't know anybody and being expected to talk to hundreds of strangers every day. I'm glad I am here and able to relate to his mission better. Since we're both on our own, we are even closer than ever because we depend on each other for strength when the times get tough. Mutual trust and dependency are so so important in a relationship. He has been my biggest strength in my life. I don't know what I'd do without him.

So Log is thinking of coming home in January so he can go back to school. This means around seven months left :) Each day we get closer and closer to being together again. I'm so excited to finally start to see the light in the tunnel. We are both getting excited for what the future holds for us, it seems like more and more of a reality. I think I've become lots more optimistic, I'm not worried if I'll wait for him or not anymore. I know we are supposed to be together and can't wait for him to come home so we can move forward to our future together.

Well I guess that's all I've got haha. Here are some pictures of the most handsome charming boy ever for you! He is pretty much prince charming disguised in a white shirt and name tag.

That's all for now! 7 more months.

Cute quote from a letter of Logan's: "I crave the day I get to hold you all the time. It will be the best day ever. Yup Yup. we are super special, I know it that we are meant to be together no matter what tries to get in our way we will always make it together cuz we are perfect. You are my one and only, my lover girl!! Have a good day for me ok? Good, well I've got to go so I better tuck you in for the night. Good night darlilng. Muah, that's a kiss on the forehead for you sweetheart. Sleep tight have good dreams."
