Week 64 - "The Girls That Roam the Neighborhood"

HHHHHHHHHHeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy :)

(Having Fun at Target today)

Good week! Fast week! Lots of stuff. I'm tired, but what's new? Hahah....Bring on this next week!

It has been a good week, transfers were crazy but it was great. SO many new missionaries came in. We got to go finding with them in Manchester. I remember when I did that as a new missionary with the STLTs.....Woah! Weird!  It was fun to go finding with them. And it is so fun to be involved in all the new missionary excitement. I have some high hopes for this group and I am looking forward to seeing what they learn and become.

New Missionaries Oct 2018

So sad, confusing, crazy, and a little scary......But Brian, the biggest miracle of my mission in my previous area Portsmouth, was supposed to get baptized on Saturday. There was some weird miscommunication between him and the missionaries. Apparently, he didn't want anyone to come to the baptism, but the whole ward had already been invited. So, Brian and Bro. Clark tried to change the time and didn't tell the missionaries. Sounds like there was some confusing conversations.... and Brian as of now is not baptized.... But he did come to church the next day. He has too much of a testimony of the doctrine. But the sister missionaries there now feel a lot of strain on relations in the ward now... weird.

The whole Portsmouth fiasco was crazy and we still don't feel like we have all the pieces of the story. Honestly, it shook me too. It feels like my family just got in a big argument.

BUT....GOOD NEWS....Linda passed her baptism interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is doing great and we have started planning her program!

Gabriel is also keeping commitments and is progressing, we will see where it goes.

Crystal is this awesome mom who has some great promise. She watched women's conference and bore a simple testimony of the spirit that emanates from just opening the Book of Mormon. Her son answered the door for a lesson and he was like, "MOM -THE GIRLS THAT ROAM THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARE HERE!!" hahahahah!.....I mean he's right though!

Johanna is having some health problems but we are seeing her again soon.

Lidia and Jonah and Ayyane are doing wonderful :) I love these kiddos!

It was a slower week finding. We have been keeping track of our daily invite goals and have been inviting a lot, but it was just one of those weeks were not many people said yes. But we did invite over 70 people! It's okay, we just want to continue focusing on teaching good principles before and after the invite.

Sister Holmes is doing well. She got that cough that I have been fighting, so we are trying to help her try to beat it. She is awesome and continues to be committed to the work! We are excited for another transfer together!

Exchanges to Rivere. I went to Rivere with Hermana Rawle and MacDonald. It was fun!  I was part of some Spanish lessons and Spanish finding! Good times good stuff!

This week when Crystal told us that she felt a peace come over her just from having the Book of Mormon open, it reminded me of the power that comes from the Book of Mormon. I have loved taking the challenge of the prophet and reading this sacred book. I know that even from a young age, even before I could read, I felt the spirit of peace, and the light emanate from it's pages. I am so grateful for the answers that come as we try to figure out the confusing things in life. 

We got to go to lunch with Sister Whatcott! (Wife of Brother Whatcott, a counselor in our Mission Presidency) She is so awesome and always talks about what she can do for the sisters of the mission!

It is so fun in our roles for us to get to know each of the sisters in the mission more personally!
