Almost Done Baby! Almost Done!

Note from Elder Alley's mom: I got this pic texted to me with the message: "We just had dinner with these two fine missionaries. What great young men. Thanks for sharing them with us!" I was so excited, but the photo was really small on my phone and when I zoomed in I only saw the guy riding the donkey (who turned out to be part of the photo board lol) and the two next to him and none of them were Elder Alley. So I'm trying to figure out how someone could randomly send me a picture of a missionary I don't know. (I mean what are the odds of texting the wrong number and it being another missionary's mom?) Then I looked again and there he is! Elder Alley was hiding under the burro. haha Day made! I am so grateful for people who take the time to send me things like this. :)

Dear Alley Family & Friends,

 Wow! Can you believe that I only got three weeks left before I come home?! That's insane! I still remember the one e-mail that I sent to Mom, telling her that two years as a missionary felt more like two centuries. Now I'm looking back on it and I realize that time really did fly by. I guess it's true what Grandpa Alley said to Dad and all my uncles and aunts before they left for their missions, "Each day goes a little bit faster than the previous one." Man, oh man.

Well, this week was another good week for missionary work. Since I'm just about done, I'm going to make these last few e-mails short so that I can have some mission stories to share in person. But I do want to share a couple things that happened this week:

1) Had another awesome teaching appointment with the C family! We taught them about how they can recognize the promptings of the Holy Ghost, especially when it testifies to them that the Book of Mormon is true. We taught them this because, even though the parents are members of the church, their children are not members and so the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is kind of new for them. It was a great lesson. We had another member couple help us with the lesson and even I felt like I learned something new about how to recognize the Holy Ghost.

2) Contacted two media referrals and one of those became a new investigator! Her name is A and she ordered a Holy Bible from When we delivered the Bible to her, we also get to teach her and her husband F about the Restoration. It was awesome and they even accepted a copy of the Book of Mormon! I love it when I get to teach people who are so open-minded and already have a love for God and His Son Jesus Christ. Not a bad week if you ask me.

Well, that ought to do it. I hope you all have a good week this week. I love you all and miss you all.

Hurrah for Israel!


Elder Michael Alley
