5:3-5 for this week: "And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also:knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
Alright on to a new transfer!
So here's what wrapped up this last one with this past week -
Sydney asked her parents if she
could be baptized, and they said their answer for now wasn't yes but wasn't no.
So we are going to work with Sydney on personal progress (that she's already
done a lot of actually on her own) to keep her progressing in the gospel as
much as she can for now. She's awesome, her testimony is strong and will carry
her to the day she does get baptized as long as she keeps it up.
(less-active/part-member/recent convert all in one family) had us over for
breakfast, Stacy made french toast with hawaiian bread and vanilla in the egg
mix. It was really really good. We had a really good time and they're taking us
to P.F. Chang's for lunch today right after i send this email.
We got to see Sister Wimmer's
twin sister Eliza on friday! She was passing through on her way to San Diego
with a friend and President Clark gave us permission to go to dinner with her.
It was really fun, Sister Wimmer and Eliza are best friends and so we had a
I saw the Novillos (part-member
family in the Wood Canyon ward) at the temple music night on sunday. That was
really fun, they came over and found me to give me hugs! Made me feel loved and
I'm so glad they came.
Tell me how the BYU game goes
this weekend Ty! Sounds like this last game was exciting!
New transfer, but staying in
the Las Flores ward (YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!:) plot twist - WITH Sister Wimmer
for a 3rd transfer :D AND we're co-training a brand new missionary who's coming
to the field today. Just like you dad! Training at the end! SO excited.
Miracles are bound to happen and I can't wait to see how much more my testimony
grows. Makes me so happy.
Last week I finished the Book
of Mormon. And I'm starting it again. There have been so many testimonies given
of the Book of Mormon, the power by which it was brought forth, and many other
truths that build on it. It is true. I know it, and I believe it with all my
heart, might, mind, and strength. The moment I finished as i was sitting there
pondering, I was surprised at the feeling of approval and love from Heavenly
Father, like He was congratulating me or smiling at me as if I had accomplished
something extraordinary, which I didn't expect. It made me feel happy (like
real happiness) that He was happy. And I express gratitude for the Book of Mormon
in my prayers to Him! I have come to know Jesus Christ a little better, and
love Him as I strive to come closer to being like Him. He is wonderful to help
me change and progress in that process of becoming.
