So this week we were really busy and just living it up as sisters do, had appointments, etc. But also this week, Elder Dikes of the 70 and Elder Allen spoke on iPads that our mission will be receiving in due time. I don't want them, but will do my best to use them as another tool from and for the Lord. The whole mission was there, however, we did manage to remain reverent and lunch time was just a hot mess of fun seeing everybody, I was going bonkers. Also at the meeting I received a package from Amazon, I don't know who got it, but thank you thank you thank you whoever sent me that cute watch and the packages of gushers, that was a prompt response to my last email and I really appreciate it- please tell me who you are?!
The rest of the week was really a blur, the pics do it justice though.we found out that Sis Black is leaving me to go to Stockport. Initially, she wasn't going anywhere. To be blatant, I wasn't very Christlike in my reaction and was on the verge of being livid. We have too much work to get done, but I recognize getting the new girl will be a good thing and that Sis B and I will chill in UT all the time, I love her.
Yesterday we got to go to the temple with Dolly. It was the best time. I really love her too. Then we went to a carvery- so danky- with the Petersons. Afterward we prepared for Peace's baptism. The baptism was probably the best thing that has happened in my life. When I feel the Spirit very strongly, I get over-jovial and that definitely is what happened there. This gospel is the most important thing in my life and it always will be. Seeing that in Peace's life has been the greatest blessing.
I really do mean it when I say this church is everything to me and I have been so happy because of it. I love my family, friends, Peace, Sister Black and everyone in-between but I've only been capable to do so because of the amount of my love for the Saviour that has progressively grown. I love this work and want to be the best I can for the rest of these fifteen months and still have so far to go. These are the best days!
