Helloooo everyone! Happy New Year!!! It's 2016, can you believe it? I can't ha.

This week I'd like to start by telling everyone that I figured out my pain in my left shoulder/back ... a pinched nerve! Had to go to Urgent Care actually last Monday because Sister Hendrick was worried about me so she called the mission nurse (even though I insisted I was fine) and the nurse said to go in. Doc says it is most likely a pinched nerve HOWEVER just in case it's something worse I'm getting an MRI on Wednesday. :P No fun. They put me on a couple medications that made me feel like a space cadet for a couple of days (seriously could not concentrate on anythiiiiing).

Found out that I can take them in a different way so I can actually be an effective missionary. So no more crazy spacing out.

Some more exciting news ... Heidi Grande is on date!!! We got her on date for baptism for the end of the month! Thank you so much for all your prayers headed her way. Continue to pray to support her as she prepares! Very exciting stuff. :) It all was so cool and I'm grateful for Heidi and her amazing spirit.

THEN we had a new year. Course .. we didn't stay up till midnight but I was up till 10 so technically midnight for some of you whom I am emailing so I think that counts. We played fun games as a zone until we had to be in and then just did our normal missionary thang.

Woke up to 2016 and was ready to take on some New Year's goals and ready to start fresh! This is our year, people. It's time to set some goals and achieve them. Hoo-rah! (just for you dad :))

Anyway, otherwise this week has been pretty normal. :) I'm so grateful to be out here and doing the Lord's work. I'm so grateful for his hand in my life and his constant spirit that surrounds me on a daily basis. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for him and his Atonement. Without that, I would've been lost a long time ago.
Have a wonderful week!
Sister Burden
