Ljubljana, Slovenia

Bye Bye Ljubljana

Last week we heard about transfer announcements for my last transfer! Every time that happens we have a missionwide zoom call and our mission president and his wife take turn annoucing each city and the missionaries serving there! 
He announced that I would be training in Ljubljana! That was absolutely my dream. It sounded like the perfect way to spend my last 3 months! Then the next morning he called me. He said when they annouced that I would stay in Ljubljana it didn't feel quite right. He asked me how I would feel if instead my trainee and I were in Maribor. I told him of course I can do that if God needs me there. 
So Maribor it is. This city is where I started my mission. Only one set of sisters and the senior couple live there so it will be very different for me since I have been in Ljubljana with 8 missionaries for the last 9 months. 
I loved General Conference. One of my favorite things I came to realize is that we can be free through the Atonement of Christ. Feeling free is such an amazing feeling. You often have to carry something have to notice how freeing it is to walk without it. There are things that weigh me down of course because I am human. At times I feel upset, distracted, selfish, or anxious. No matter what circumstance I am in, no matter what kind of responsibilities I have, no matter what time of the day, no matter where I am, I can feel the burden lifted. I promise you can feel the same. Pray. Pray deeply and sincerely to feel peace and to feel the healing power of Jesus, our older brother and Savior. You can always feel free.
Love,Sestra King
