Spiritual thought: " Even in our trials we can experience joy and peace." Robert D Hales, I want you all to remember this and look for all the blessings that are around you. During times of hardship we can either look for the bad in everything or we can look for the good. It's always a choice but I can promise you if you look for the good you will be a lot happier! I love you all!
Another week has gone by like a blink of an eye. It is crazy how fast the weeks go! Sorry for not writing last week everyone but TBH these past two weeks I have been busy so i'm just going to share some highlights!
Highlights:1) Number 1 highlight is of course about Robbie and Ailed because they are amazing! 2 weeks ago we taught them the word of wisdom which we were really nervous to teach them but they totally accepted it and that was a huge miracle! Then this week we had a great lesson with them and talked about how they were doing with the word of wisdom and they said they quit everything cold turkey and they feel great! Then we talked about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith and they said they believe that the Book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith is a prophet they truly are amazing and have such amazing faith! Their new date is Aug 8th little fact that is a day after I hit my year mark and we are all so excited about it!
2) We had MLC pt. 2 because President Christensen wants to start having 2 of those per transfer. This one was just as good as the first one and I learned a ton more about Leadership. It was a lot of fun. I feel very privileged to be able to join those.
3) we had interviews and I got to talk to President Christensen and that is always amazing!
4) We got to have Dawnettes baptism this past saturday and it was sooooo amazing! We also started to teach a couple of really cool new people! I am truly humbled and so happy to be able to be out here during this amazing time for missionary work. It's been a huge testimony builder for me and I have found so much Joy in the service of the Lord! Pic 1: Online district pday pic2-3: Dawnettes baptism!
