Hey y'all! It's been a good week! It was a really long week, too.
Transfers are this Wednesday and Sister Stolworthy will be leaving. :( I
will get a new companion- again. I have had SO many companions it's
crazy. I love them all! Some kind of change has happened to me every six
weeks since the beginning of April, which isn't normal... It keeps me
on my toes, though!
I'm not even sure what to tell
you about this week. To be honest, I'm never really sure what you want
to know... We went on exchanges. That was fun. We started teaching a guy
from Jamaica. He called the elders a couple weeks ago and said
he wants to get baptized. They started teaching him, but then realized
he lives in our area. So, now we teach him! He is super cool and very
Brother Chester (a recent convert we
have been working with who is from Guiana) is getting the priesthood
next Sunday! So, that is exciting. He told us when he first met the
missionaries he couldn't move his feet while they were talking to him.
And he couldn't stop thinking about it when they left. He has had to
exercise his faith a lot since he got baptized and every single time
everything has worked out.
There was a ward
trunk-or-treat on Friday. That was fun! Also we had stake conference
this week. Oh! Miracle of the week: I saw Amanda. I don't know
if you remember her, but she is a lady I taught in Georgetown who got
baptized. She moved to Conway while I was still in Georgetown. Conway is
only a half hour from Myrtle Beach and we are in the same stake. So, I
got to see her at stake conference. It was so good to see her and see
that she is active. The ward over there is taking great care of her and
she even found out one of her distant cousins is a member and in the
same ward as her! I have missed her. I love her so much! I was really
grateful it all worked out so perfectly like it did. Heavenly Father
definitely had a hand in it all.
pretty much my week. We started saying goodbye to people for Sister
Stolworthy last night. It's always hard to say goodbye to people you
love. I didn't realize how often it happens on a mission. Warning to all
who serve missions: you will love the people if you work hard. And it
will be hard to say goodbye to them. However, it is worth it. I'd say
that love is the biggest thing I have learned about on my mission thus
far. I've learned how to love better, what love really is, and the value
of love. I love to love! It sounds so cheesy, but it is true. When you
are constantly thinking of how to help those around you, you can't help
but love them.
