Hey all...this is the mom right now. Jenni is having some trouble getting blog up, so I am going to do a catch up here (have 3 blogs to post for her) Wish me luck as this is not my forte!
This week seemed to just zoom by!
We had zone conference on Tuesday. And it was so stressful hahah. So now that we don't have zone meeting, the second half of zone conference is done by the Zone Leaders and STLs. We were over time already and just rushed, so it was hard for me to like relax and enjoy that part of it. But our trainings went well so that's good! But the rest of Zone Conference was really fun actually!
The next day we got to go to lunch with one of Sister Christensens old companions! I actually served around her my first 2 transfers so it was fun! Plus we got Chik Fil A so doesnt get much better!
We were able to find 4 new people to start teaching this week, we are pretty happy about that! (Also side note, while teaching someone their tv was on and I found out THATS SO RAVEN IS COMING BACK hahaha ) I was also able to finally meet Dennis. The sisters have been working with him for a looong time. He is planning on being baptized as soon as he sorts some things out, so we are excited! Plus he grew up in Vegas 😊
Last night President Alexander hosted a fireside here in Winston. The missionaries put on a little presentation about the Restoration and we sang some songs. Then some recent converts bore their testimonies. Wendell was there! It is so great seeing all your hard word actually count for something and seeing the happy ending makes it so worth it! ❤
Okay so I have a HUGE favor to ask of you all. So I go home soon *starts crying hysterically* And in our mission, when you have 3 months left you get a Sprint letter. Where you pledge to work harder than ever in your last 3 months. To sprint to the end. So in order for me to stay focussed and really do all I can, I wanted to ask you to not mention me coming home or anything like it. I know it will be hard for some *cough cough mom and dad* But it will be worth it.😊 Also that doesn't mean I want you to stop emailing /writing me haha please keep that up! I also ask that you keep me and my investigators in your prayers! And in return feel free to send me anything that I can pray for you! I know prayer is very powerful and brings miracles!
Spiritual Thought: "Holiness is in the striving and the struggle to keep the commandments and to honor the covenants we have made with God. Holiness is making the choices that will keep the Holy Ghost as our guide. Holiness is setting aside our natural tendencies and becoming "a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord." "Every moment of [our lives] must be holiness to the Lord." - Sister Carol F Mconkie
Well that's all for now! I can't believe how fast time really goes by. I am so thankful for each and every second I have spent and will continue to spend in the South❤❤ Love you all, have a great week!!
