Sister's Mission

August 10, 2015

Hola!! Como estas? Wait, sorry, wrong mission language! Hello! How are you!

This week has been pretty good! I'll start with the best part....WE GOT ANOTHER NEW INVESTIGATOR!!!!!!

If you remember me telling you about Nate from last week's email, we got to meet with her this week! She is so solid! She follows some Mormon blog (thank you Pinterest), and is really accepting and willing to learn! She was going to come to church yesterday, but ended going to go visit some family instead. We have another appointment set up with her for this week! Please keep praying for her!!

One thing that wasn't so happy, was that Alex (the other potential I talked about last week) dropped his appointment. It was pretty sad, but we are going to try by later in the week and try and set up another appointment.

We got to see the Petries again this week! They are totally going to be ready to be baptized on their scheduled date! This week we taught them about the Word of Wisdom. That's always fun to teach a group of kids, right? We only have 3 more lessons to teach them, and they are beginning to come to church regularly. What's also great about this, is that their parents (who are less active) are almost reactivated. They both just need to come to church one more time! It is so amazing to see people rediscover the gospel and the Spirit and see just how much it can change their lives!!

This week we have a couple big events coming up! First, it's the end of the transfer!!! We will be getting the call on Sunday to see if we move or not. Elder Olsen and I have been trying to predict what will happen, but it is honestly impossible. It's going to be a weird night! Second,: as of Saturday, I will only have 18 months (or a sister's mission, as I've been calling it) left!!! It is so crazy how fast time goes on a mission. It feels like just yesterday I was saying a quick curbside goodbye to my family and getting on a plane! It has been an amazing 6 months so far, and I cannot wait to see what the next 18 have in store. Of course, I must follow the "foolish traditions" of our fathers and burn a tie on Saturday. I will make sure to  take pictures and send them to you.

Thank you all for your wonderful emails and support! Love you all and look forward to hearing from you next week! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!!!
