Hello everyone! Thank you for all the birthday wishes:) This week was a pretty solid week! Here are the highlights:
Monday: We went to Elkhart for pday! It was awesome! I love going down there and seeing all my peeps and playing games with them and stuff:) It was a fun day!
Tuesday: Zone Conference! President and the AP's came up and we had a long meeting together! It was awesome! I was so uplifted and more excited to do the work! And I had to give my first Zone Conference training! It was a little nerve racking but it went well :) We taught about how to study effectively and prepare to teach investigators.
Wednesday: I was sick all morning :( so I slept! It was good to get caught up on some sleep! Later in the afternoon we helped someone paint and visited some people. After dinner we saw an awesome member of our ward and she shared her conversion story with us and it was sooooo cool! I love hearing peoples conversion story! Its amazing what God can do in our lives!
Thursday: Best part about today was eating Nutella cheesecake!!! But we will get to that in a sec…We stopped by a less active member. She is amazing! We visit her every week and she is like a mom to us :) She is struggling a lot so we are doing all we can to help her and her family. We brought the Relief Society president with us so they could meet and it was PERFECT! They became friends right away! We got to share a message as well and you could tell that it truly touched her :) Its amazing what the Spirit can do in a lesson that we can't! After we met up with some members and got desserts (aka nutella cheesecake) and it was quite an experience!!!
Friday: Today was a pretty crummy day. It seemed like everything went wrong. BUUTTTT we had a cool experience. We tried to visit someone but they weren't home (of course) and as we were walking back to the car we saw an old lady across the street trying to put up some holiday decorations so we went and helped her! She was sooo happy about it and it was the best feeling to help her:)
Saturday! Was my birthday! And it was a WHITE birthday! My first one ever! It snowed basically all day! We had a fun day filled with lots and lots of food, some service, visiting less actives and an AMAZING lesson with a new investigator! We met up with her at the church and gave her a tour and taught her some basic things and she is SOOO ready to hear the gospel and we are so excited to start working with her! She is amazing! We love her so much already!
Sunday: We had an awesome time at church and some of the less actives we've been working with came to church! It was awesome! We taught gospel principles and had a bajilllion meetings. That night we had a fireside called "Why I Believe" and our recent convert Patience spoke! She is so amazing and has the strongest testimony ever!
Transfer news: I will be staying in Mishawaka but my companion Sister Miles is leaving:( we are super sad about that but I am excited to meet my new companion! Her name is Sister Murray!
Have a great week! Love you all!
