Hello world.
This week was.. (heart eye emoji)

SO GOOD. Transfers are on Wednesday so that means transfer calls were on Saturday. Such a scary day. We held our breath and avoided the phone like the plague. But low and behold we got a call. Luckily Sis. B and I are both staying in Stevenson Ranch :) and I finally hit my 12 week mark! 
But a slight catch, President called me and asked me to be the Sister Training Leader! Woof. I am so excited to serve and teach my Zone!
(Sister Training Leaders-STL's is pretty much like Zone Leaders but for sistas. So we go to meetings with President and then hold Zone Training Meetings with the Zone Leaders to teach and instruct our Zone! Zones are a compilation of a few Districts. There's about 5 English Zones in my mission.)

We had a great week! We will hopefully be holding a baptism on September 19th so pray for that! It's two little boys 9 and 11 :) and the older brother is 15 and is going to be baptized as well but he lives in the elder's area! 
But the coolest thing happened. So my comp and I were going to stop by our cute 76 year old investigator's home when we ran into a guy. He stopped us and remembered we talked to him before. He pretty much just laid out how he doesn't like how his life is and he really needs help. We taught him about baptism and when he gets baptized he will be washed of his sins and God will remember them no more. He was like.... wow okay that sounds good. So we're going to have a member pick him up for church next week and hopefully start teaching him this week :) Crazy how sometimes God just hands you people he has prepared, it's just up to us to listen to the spirit and recognize His hand.

Sis B and I randomly got slapped in the face with a cold this week. Being sick wrecks lives. But it's okay because we are almost all better. It was so funny though because we thought it was allergies at first so we took allergy medicine- the kind that makes you tired. We had to go knocking doors from 4-6 PM-- hahaha, I wish someone filmed us. We were slurring our words to everyone and just could not focus. Some guy just paused and laughed at us. Ya, we didn't get any new investigators that day. Haha but it was an interesting one. 

Yesterday we discussed "Having Good Intentions".  It is not enough to just have good intentions. But to ACT in faith and to accomplish much good with God on our right hand and a consistent prayer in our hearts. Something I've really thought about since I first became a Beehive was the division of religion vs our "normal" day lives. I've come to realize that there is not a division. This gospel of Jesus Christ IS our life. This is why we are here. Not to just have a good intention of doing good in this world but actually DOING IT. I have come to hate excuses. They're stupid. So just do good, be good, and don't justify your actions. I will be working on that as well. 

LOVE YOU SCOUNDRELS! I feel your prayers every single day and I love you for it. 
God bless.

-Your fav sister missionary
