Fun fact: sprinkles for ice cream are called 'jimmies' here. 👍🏼
We had plans to go to the temple last week on Friday, but then the
biggest storm of the year decided to hit on that day, even though it
was in the 50's like all week!! 'Storm Lexie' postponed our temple
date, but we still decided to have an AWESOME day! :) A member from my
last area/ the coolest person ever, was going to come get us and take
us to the temple, but then since the temple was closed and she had
already driven all the way here to get us (like 2 hours!!) so we went
to the mall instead. It was such an AWESOME day!! Shout out to
Nerissa, we love you!!!
We had interviews with President Stoker, I am so thankful for his
tender testimony and closeness to the spirit. I love this mission!!
And I am so thankful for the Priesthood.
We also got transfer calls, I am staying with my trio and staying in Saco!
Also, this transfer is 7 weeks instead of 6! I'm excited to be with
these cute sisters!!
Ninette got baptized!!!! She and her family only speak French, the
elders taught in English so my comp sister Monjar translates (gift of
tongues, it's REAL!) and we have some French speaking members. It was
such an awesome experience to see the ward come together to help her
on her investigator journey, now she is a member!! Woo!! The whole
session was in French, our bishop who baptized her even decided to
learn French so he could baptize her in French. It. Was. Awesome.
We had a slow 2 weeks due to illness, I was down and out with a major
cold, and then I accidentally passed it to my two beautiful
But yesterday was AWESOME! We had a lesson with our two cute
investigators Alice and Molly. They are so smart and so sensitive to
the spirit. We taught the first part of the plan of salvation, and
they were asking the best questions! Our time ran out, so we committed
them to baptism and they said yes!! They want to be baptized on March
19th!! We are so excited for them! They are such amazing girls. With
such strong faith!!
A quote to ponder on, and remember that this life is our time to
prepare to meet God! Are we doing all we can, with all we have, to
progress to Him?
“God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left
the electricity in the cloud, the oil in the earth. He left the rivers
unbridged and the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt. God gives
to man the challenge of raw materials, not the ease of finished
things. He leaves the pictures unpainted and the music unsung and the
problems unsolved, that man might know the joys and glories of
- President Thomas S. Monson
LOVE YOU ALL!
Me and Sister Stoker (mission Presidents Wife). I sure love her!
