Missionaries Rock

{Sorry... Julie wrote this letter on October 9th and I forgot/ got busy and didn't post it to her blog.}

Hey y'all,
On Thursday, I ate pig's ear for the first time, and it tastes basically the same way it sounds.  I am trying all sorts of new food out here in Texas!  We also had a cool tender mercy on Thursday.  We stayed too long at one appointment, and we had two more after it, and there was no way that we were going to be able to make it to both of them.  Fortunately, one of our appointments called us and rescheduled for another date.  Dios nos ama.
On Friday, I had my first MOTR (Missionaries On The Run).  Since sisters can't go on exchanges with our leaders, we have combined companion study so we can get help and instruction from them.  It was pretty cool!
Guillermo came to conference!  I was so excited to hear about the new age limits for missionaries.  There are going to be so many missionaries coming out to the field in the next few months, and I am super excited.  This is going to be super awesome!  But we think that both Utah State and BYU are going to be very empty for the next few semesters and all of their students leave on missions.
Missionary work is awesome!  Seriously all y'all 18 year old men and 19 and 20 year old women.  Y'all should come out here as soon as possible.  The work is great, and there is so much to do.  We need your help, and anxiously look forward to when y'all can join us out here in the field! 
The field out here in Waco, Texas is truly white, already for the harvest.  There are so many people that we meet and teach, and find and teach, and are referred to and teach.  Texas is awesome! 
I love how many churches there are here.  There are normally 1 to 3 churches on every street corner.  You can't drive for more than 2 blocks without running to another church.  The people here have so much faith in their Saviour.  The Bible Belt is awesome. 
Y'all have a blessed day now,
Hermana Julie Anna Sanchez
