Highlight of my entire week- we're at a dinner appointment with roaches crawling around the couch we're sitting on but we can't get up and move somewhere else because 1. there's nowhere else to sit and 2. can't offend. So I'm sitting there and start feeling LITERALLY A COCKROACH crawling up my spine and start crying HARD on the inside. I can't do anything because they're staring right at me talking to me so I sit there PRAYING MY GUTS OUT and SLOWLY feel this roach make it's way, zig zagging down my back. They wouldn't stop talking and we couldn't just stand up because #rude. 45 min later we get in our car and I'm SQUIRMING OUT OF MY MIND. You best believe I took 20 showers that night. If there's one thing you need to know about Brynn Beal, it's that I'm absolutely terrified of bugs & each of my comps can attest to that pretty good lol
Our mission's vehicle coordinator called us and said, "Tiwi Headquarters called and told me that Sister Beal needs to be suspended from driving for 2 transfers because she's getting too many, aggressive drivings" HAHAHAHA. Tiwi is the thing I will miss THE VERY LEAST. It's a little box that sits on our windshield to yell at us when we go 7 over the speed limit or when we aren't wearing our seat belt & driving aggressively. We were blessed with a Tiwi that fell off the windshield and can't stick back on so LITERALLY every 5 min I get an "aggressive driving" that reports to SLC, UT each time #doesthismakemefamous??
We had Zone Conf this week and at the very end President Bateman put together a slideshow of all the baptisms the MSLM had this past year. The spirit was literally SO strong looking at all these individuals who have entered into this convenant with Heavenly Father. I most likely only have 4 weeks left in this area but I am so committed to getting one more baptism here in Sikeston. This week was low-key discouraging- our most progressing person we are teaching texted us and told us he no longer wanted to meet. We started the week with 4 on date and now have 0- BUT NONETHELESS I'm absolutely DETERMINED to find someone prepared to enter into the waters of baptism these next 4 weeks. I KNOW that with Heavenly Father's help, Sister Carroll and I can do this. #eyeoffaithasheck
SPIRITUAL THOUGHT- Moroni 8:3 "I am mindful of you always in my prayers, continually praying unto God the Father in the name of his Holy Child, Jesus, that he, through his infinite goodness and grace, will keep you through the endurance of faith on his name to the end."
I love this verse- Heavenly Father knows us. He knows each of our prayers and He hears our heart. Our faith is never stagnant- it is constantly increasing or decreasing and I love that we learn to continually endure our faith in Jesus Christ. I know that by praying every single day and reading from the scriptures every single day, our faith increases and our relationship with Christ grows ever so deeply.
