This week has been SUPER BUSY! It is the best to be busy though. I just found out that I am going to be staying in this area, still training Sister Hansen, and still the Sister Training Leader for the Zone. Its crazy! There is so much to always be doing. But it is the best! I have noticed that I am the most happy when I am accomplishing the most stuff!
TICA GOT BAPTIZED!!!! She has been working with sister missionaries since December last year. She was finally able to make this step and enter into a new chapter of her life. She is amazing! She has such a deep desire to serve God and follow His will for her. She has worked so hard for so long to reach this day! Seeing her change the past couple months has been really cool! The atonement is real! After she was baptized I asked her how she was feeling when she waked into the bathroom to dry off. She said that she felt really good, and she recognized the opposition now with reaching her baptism. She is such an example!
Funny Story: We were coming home one night, and as we were writing down our miles for the day there was light flashing all around, and there was a bunch of loud popping noises. We figured it was tons of ground fireworks. Suddenly they all stopped. Then there was a huge puff of smoke that came up around where our apartment was. We freaked out a little bit, but we then realized it was in the trees more of behind our apartment. Then as we were walking towards our apartment going in for the night, this creepy old man came walking by. He was carrying a long lighter in his hand and he didn't have shoes on... he walked right into the forest behind our apartment, like it was his home, and he started picking up sticks.. We were so confused.. but we just quickly walked into our apartment, and locked the door! lol.
Hope you all have a great week full of grace as you each take steps towards a more full commitment to God.
