AND ... WE'RE BACK
WHAT SISTER MISSIONARIES EAT ...
Hello mother dearest!
Well, this past week was the last week to the transfer...another one gone! And Sister Smith and I are staying in Berkeley. We have a lot of changes happening in the Visitors' Center - 5 new sisters will be coming in and 5 will be out into full-proselyting areas. We are excited for all the changes!
Last week we had some big miracles....we added a new investigator with a baptism date (he's so awesome! He's a super good basketball player and played in Argentina!) and we are getting closer and closer to a baptismal date with one of our other investigators! We had the most amazing lesson with her the other night. She requested for our lesson that Sister Smith and I share our experiences with missionary work/being members of the church. I shared a few different experiences (seminary, David Mackey's story, and some experiences on my mission) and Sister Smith and the member who was with us shared some amazing experiences as well. It created the perfect spirit and environment to testify of the blessings of what it means to be baptized and in invited her again (we've made several attempts before - but we knew this was the perfect moment!) At this point she started crying and told us that she wants to be baptized!!! What a miracle! 2 months ago she did not want to be baptized and was mostly interested in just learning. But these past few months she has seen Heavenly Father's hand in her life and has gained a testimony of him and the Savior. Everything she said was so amazing, almost too good to be true (but it is!) We are working with her for a date...so she's getting closer. :)
Our roommates (Sister Braithwaite and Sister Huefner) are amazing, and last week one day we came home to them making dinner for us - fried chicken, onion rings, and lemonade....ALL homemade! Literally! Even the lemonade was made with freshly squeezed lemons. It was amazing! So just thought I'd let you know how awesome and amazing they are, and so fun to live with. :)
That's all for this week....I love you! And thank you for the stuff you're sending me! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!!
OOPS ... I MISSED ONE FROM FEBRUARY ...
