I have too much time to catch up on since I haven't had a pday for 2 weeks.
Let me just do the most important events:
I don't know if you remember Jerrica. But she is a Less Active that I taught with Sister Asay. She found her in the beginning of her misson and has been helping her ever since. On 12.13.14 she went through the Temple!!! YAYYY. I was so grateful that she invited me to go. It's truly amazing to see the changes people can make when they decide to fully follow God and His will for them in their lives.
I have the best companion in the whole universe. I don't even know what to say. Honestly she's an angel sent from above. She is so hard working and just loves everything and everyone. Not a single person walks by that she doesn't stop and say hello to and asks how their day is going! She truly is a consecrated missionary and she's helped me to become better just in the last week I've spent with her. I LOVE HER SO MUCH. I'm glad she's my companion in my last transfer cause she keeps me going :)
|Sister Vasi and I. Beehive House Christmas Tree|
Carlos is doing sooooo amazing. He has started his mission papers and is 80% done. He will turn them in soon and is planning to leave on his mission this summer. So Mom & Dad, I will be going to his farewell!!
Yesterday Ben celebrated his 1 year of Baptism! He actually gave a talk in church and we were allowed to go! I loved it. It's so neat to see all that he's learned over the past year and how much he truly loves the gospel and is converted to it.
Last night Sister Vasi & I, and Sister Tiritilli and Sister Weidmann got to go to the Moore's house for a Christmas Dinner. They are actually the secretaries in our mission, so I don't know how we lucked out and got to go to their house, but it was THE BEST. We ate such yummy food and played with their grand kids and told funny Christmas stories. We even had those popper things with the goodies inside that we have at the Johns every Christmas Eve. I would send pics but Elder Moore has them still. So maybe next week.
I'm serving in the Beehive House again! & I think I love it even more this time. I forget what a privilege it is to serve there. It's helped my testimony sooo much. Just being in a prophet's home and taking people through it has made the gospel more real to me in my life. Sister Vasi is really good about helping us have spiritual tours there instead of just being like,... "This is the office, and blah blah blah here's the facts." Like I said, she's an amazing missionary, so I'm happy to be serving in Brigham Young's home with her.
I think that's about all the biggest things I can think of that have happened over the past 2 weeks. The biggest lesson I've learned is that when we follow the Lord's will with what ever it is, he blesses us once we've made it through the challenge or trial. Being Sister Jarrett's companion was truly one of the hardest parts of my mission. But I can say that I did try my hardest and that I learned SO much. Now she's home & I have no idea what's going on with her, but I'm just working SO hard, like harder than ever with Sister Vasi & it's the greatest.
I love you all!
