I had the opportunity to shake hands with Elder Quinten L. Cook, Elder Soares and Bishop Stevenson! We came together as a mission and had the privilege of listening to these wonderful leaders give inspired council. Elder Cook opened it up to a question and answer. We were able to ask questions and then each of them were able to answer. It was so awesome! I learned so much. It really opened my eyes more to the importance of what I am doing at this time in my life. Elder Cook said to us: "You are where you ought to be." I know that is so true. I am grateful to be a missionary for the Lord right now.
We got transfer callsand Sister Tonnies and I will be staying together!! We both freaked out when we got that call. We really, really wanted to stay together. We had a lesson with our investigator Lori and the first thing she said when we got there was "prayer really works!! I prayed that you's would both be stayin'!!"
This is my 6th transfer! So, so hard to believe that. Time has gone by so fast. I have loved every minute of this amazing journey of being a missionary. This is going to be a great transfer. A lot of our investigators have dates to be baptized this transfer. I am so excited for them!
Miracle of the week: Our branch president called and said "I have a family I have set up an appointment for you to teachnight." He gave us their contact info and arranged for a member to be there with us. A couple of weeks ago Sister Tonnies and I fasted and prayed to be able to find and teach a family in our area. This is such an answer to our prayers. This branch is so missionary minded. One of the biggest things I have learned is the importance of member missionary work and how to get involved in the work. I am so grateful for this branch and for the example that they all are to me to help build the Kingdom of God on earth.
I have such a strong love for this work. I know that Jesus Christ is at the head of it.
I love you all so much!! May the 4th be with you!!
