Once I Was 7 Years Old


I filled my life long dream this week by doing 2 things with old people 1) working out with the grandmas at the park in the mornings. They loved having us join in!! And to be honest, it really made my shoulders tired. Strong woman! 2) we did service with old people!!! We sang I am a Child of God to them and watched them dance and sing karaoke. So so good.

Other than that, this week was just absolute madness!! We had a mission tour with Elder and Sister Meurs of the Seventy, and his Australian accent was what everyone was obsessed over. There was also great revelation received. We had a sleepover with some Elders from Gaoxiong for a meeting super early on Friday, so that was great. We made no-bake cheese cake. haha. THEN after the meeting we all got our smartphones!!! My eyes are taking a hard adjustment to the screen time, but it's so good! The Lord is truly hastening His work!!

I heard some GREAT news at the mission tour from my last companion, Elder Huff: Sister Wang and Brother Zhao (the exchange student from China) are getting baptized!!!!! AAHHHH!!!! It's so fantastic!! So I'm stoked about that.

Also, how's #LightTheWorld been going?? We passed out some bottles of guava juice to those in need the other day and we're planning on meeting our neighbors tonight. And we're going to be doing it with members all month!! I love in John 13:4-17 when Jesus washes the feet of His disciples. He said, "If I then, you Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them." Service!! When we follow the Lord's example, we are blessed and happy. Simple.

Love you all!! Have a great week!
