Thank you for the Easter package!! I am excited to see what goodies you have sent me! I still have that stuffed Hello Kitty you sent me for Valentine's Day that sits on top of one of my suitcases for elegant decoration. :)
Even though it's only week 2 of this transfer, I have already learned a lot of new things. It is neat how you learn different things with different companions. Sister Henderson has such a great spirit about her and I already feel that Heavenly Father put me with her to learn how to be more simple about everything. That the Gospel is simple, and not complicated. That I don't need to stress out if I don't know something; that I know what I know and have my testimony, and deeper learning and understanding will come through time and diligent study. Or if it ever feels complicated (like teaching-wise or anything) it's because it's me who's making it complicated. As long as I am calm and have the spirit to guide me and trust that the Lord will use me as His tool, everything is good. :) Sounds easier than it is, but I feel like that is what the Lord wants me to learn this transfer (or one of the things).
On Saturday we helped out with the institute with CAL Day, which is when all prospective freshmen/students come. The Institute had a table set up, and we where there to invite people to tour the institute and also handed out temple cards to invite them to the temple. It was neat; there were a ton of people so it was difficult because a lot of people didn't want to talk to us but we did our best. :) Some people were really nice though and we got to have conversations with a few! Didn't find any new investigators from being there, but hopefully we planted some seeds. On Sunday we taught the Gospel Principles lesson, which was on Honesty. The people in our ward are just so awesome. So many amazing people who are so willing to help us out with lessons and with fellow-shipping. We are so blessed to be in the ward we're in!! Also, we are so blessed to be at the Visitor's Center. We meet so many interesting people every day and we are so lucky to be such a peaceful, beautiful place. At the back of the Visitor's Center, we have an amazing view of the temple and of Oakland and San Francisco. We have talked about this past week how lucky we are to be there. And we are! We're so blessed.
