Hi everyone!! This week has been soooooooo busy and crazy! Full of running around, changes and the hole shabang. First off my companion Sister Christoffersen went home back to Arkansas. So when I went to drop her off I saw my other two companies - Sister Christiansen and Sister Erickson, who were also going home. I tried to be a big girl and not cry -- but I could hold it in. I was a mess. They all looked so good and I has so happy that they are going to go see their families, but I will miss their huge hugs and smiling faces. Everyone I knew is going home!! So, not cool.... because that means that I am a oldie out here in the mission.
I spent the week with the the Northridge sisters -- was a lot of fun and super busy trying to handle three Ward with lots of appts. Miracle!! So when I was with the Northridge sisters we went to one of their recent convert houses and I met this guy- Carlos. He is YSA and super cool! I asked if he would want to join us for church and he said yes! Sunday comes and one of our awesome members, Zach walked in with Carlos and sits on our bench. He stayed the full time and is going to hang out with some of the members .... well yesterday! Everything is coming together and it is fun to see.
Cool highlight about this week was that I got to go to see Kelly's baptism!! I taught Kelly a lot but then found out she lived in the Roseville mission. So we had to have their missionaries take over teaching her. That was super sad! BUT to see her come out of the water and having her burdens lifted just made my joy meter overflow!! I love her sooooo much!!
Then night was General Women's Broadcast. It was amazing! I felt like Elder Utchdorf's was talking to me. The right guidance at the right time I guess. Cool how the Lord does that, right?!
Sooo transfers.... I got called to stay completely the same except my new companion is Sister Munk! She served in my last two areas so it is fun to hear how they have changed and such. I know that we are going to have a lot of fun!! She is from Bountiful Utah and one of the sweetest sisters I have ever met!
I have been studying 2 Nephi chapter 4. Mostly from verse 15 onward --
I read it before and liked it
but after studying it more and at the point of life I am living right now I just love it.
A prayer of faith in the Lord and an example of humility --
showing me that I need to see how much the Lord has been there for me me (those tender mercies)
I just love it !
Oh! We went to the Temple today and I loved it sooooooo much.
Every time I go I feel peace and love.
I got to see some members in the previous wards I served in and it was so nice!
We also "contacted" this guy on a motorcycle and gave him a Book of Mormon.
Hope you all have a great week!
Hurrah for Israel!
