WHAT IS UP?! I'm back again to give you yet another wild update on my life out here! I swear, every week there is something new but I guess God just wants to keep me on my toes! I'm going to be honest I can't remember too much about what happened at the beginning of the week (other than we went on a bike ride) so I'm just going to jump to the fun stuff.
SO. It was Wednesday night around 10 PM when I was peacefully sitting, minding my own business coloring, when we got the call from President Leimer...DUN DUN DUN. He told us that Sister Wilson was being transferred on Saturday to the office and I would be receiving a new companion. YES AGAIN. I guess I'm too hard to deal with so President has to keep rotating me through people. Oh well what can ya do? When Saturday came around, we got Sister Wilson packed up and I sent her off (so sad) on her merry way to Berlin. I still had a couple hours until my new companion was going to arrive sooo I got to be in a dritt with the elders:') They bought us ice cream and we sat on a bench to eat and talk. Weirdest thing of my life. Elders are so awesome but sisters are awesomer #sorrynotsorry Anyways my new companion, Sister Münch, finally arrived! She is half Filipino and half German, so as my childhood superhero Hannah Montana would say, I'm getting the best of both worlds. She served in the Philippines for about 3 months, but was sent home due to Corona and now is here! So I'm really excited to work with her and get to learn from her!
In our devotional this week, we had the special opportunity to hear a recorded talk from Sister Leimer's father who had multiple sclerosis. He talked about gratitude and this is what he said, "Before you go to bed every night, just kneel down and think about what you do have that is good and thank Heavenly Father for that, for the blessings that you do have, because we all do have blessings and we have so much and there will be times in your life when you won't feel that way. You won't feel like you can thank Heavenly Father but you can, if you think about it, you'll realize that you're very blessed and you do have many things that you are able to do." I know that gratitude opens the heavens. I know that we ALWAYS have something to be grateful for, big or small. So I invite you to all to do what Brother Bird encouraged us to do. Get on your knees and tell Heavenly Father thank you! It will make your life different, "like night and day and it will make your life better."
I'm grateful for all of you!
