Hermana Macievic

I ATE AN AVOCADO AND TOMATOES FOR THE FIRST TIME & TRANSFER NEWS!!!

Hola de nuevo, soy yo

We got transfer news yesterday !! …. I'm in another TRIO !! I stay with Hermana Macievic and we are getting another companion (Hermana Decorant) we will be training her. We have to sadly say goodbye to Hermana Carter.. She is going to my old area in Del Norte but yeah she is the sweetest, funniest, and weirdest companion ever ahha. She gave me her clothes before leaving. I'll miss drawing smiley faces on her and the handshakes we made.

Today was pretty dang fun, I balled at spike ball and won with Elder Holkum (the tall dude 6'5) We had a good record of 6 and 1 (won 6 games)!!!! Also, the sickest moment of my life is when I beat Elder Holkum at speed!!! A 6'5 guy and I've never been so happy to be competitive in my life. I also got to go to the Ghirardelli factory! On our way there I may have lost an air-pod at the church but luckily I got it back! When we got there I shared an Ice Cream Sundae with Hermana Macievic and it was the best thing my mouth ever tasted ahaha. We ended up getting my nail set out and all the girls had fun painting nails.

MIRACLES
× Fireside for our ward was a banger !!! We got to hear 2 conversions stories of people in the ward and invited the people we are teaching to come. Yosaka was not one of them but she was still a person we taught and we forgot to remind her to come, but she still came and she literally walked to the church in the dark (Mind you it's super cold outside) She is around our age and she had someone translating for her. We had food after and she really enjoyed it! We also got to hear the Tongan kids sing and it was the most beautiful song I've ever heard acapella !!
×Another one was a member who brought her friend to church a couple of times and he wanted to pay tithing but she said that he couldn't until he was a member… he then said I want to be a member!!!! We're gonna start teaching him and he has the desire to be baptized!! Random miracle
×Nahum finally got the ring and said he was going to propose to his girlfriend!!! We finally got to meet his girlfriend for the first time on her birthday and they both seem super cool so hopefully, he proposes to her soon!!!
Miracle a guy who wants to become a member!!
× Also we found a Mexican family with 5 kids and introduced them to our fellowship who is a Polynesian family of 10 kids. They apparently are inviting their kids to play sports and come to church activities with them. After we talked they said they want to come to the activities at the church!!! Maybe a baptism of 7….please pray

Interesting Things That Happened:
○ I met an Australian /New Zealand woman during our ward volleyball activity and her accent was so pretty!!
○ Took a picture with a Google Eyed tree
○ 4 for 4s at Wendy are our go-to's now
○ I'm horrible at directions and got my companion lost 5 times
○I ate tomatoes and avocado for the first time !!! I was kind of forced to eat it at a member's house but it wasn't that bad! I even ate chocolate cake and felt like I was going to throw up because I ate so much
○ Got called Dora by Nahum because I left my Backpack in his house and he said in Spanish that it reminded him of Dora and her backpack…not cool bro ahah
○ My companions can do a scary demon voice and I never laughed so hard
○ Had a lesson with a 104-year-old dude and got to talk in a little box so he could hear.
○ Ate some food from Honduras called baleadas

Spiritual thought:
Press forward with faith
Sometimes we worry too much if we are following the Holy Ghost or just making stuff up in our heads. I listened to an amazing talk that describes it better than I can and it basically states that we all need to keep doing good and keep our best to follow God as much as we can and the Holy Ghost will come naturally and we will see the blessings that come from it. I would really recommend you listen to this talk because it changed my whole mindset!!!
Elder Bednar "Quit worrying about it"
Thanks, Travis :)

Scripture:
Ether 12:4
Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hopes cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.
