Whoa this week was so nuts and my mind blew up from all the SEVEN meetings I went to but man, it was a good one!
We had transfer meeting which was super fun seeing all my bffs and the newbies.
And I love being a sister training leader, woof. My zone are ROCKSTARS! We give Zone training meeting tomorrow and eek I'm nervous but I am so excited to be a mouthpiece for the Lord.

So a couple cool experiences:
One of our investigators is 76 and has a lot of health issues so we arranged a healing blessing for her. She occupies like half of my heart, I love this lady so much. We gave a mini lesson at the beginning talking about the healing power through the priesthood and then talked about the importance of baptism. The blessing was meant to be a healing one but it was so much about how pleased the Lord is going to be with her when she gets baptized and I don't remember like any of it but I remember my heart felt like it could have exploded! We concluded with a prayer and she said it. She said the sweetest prayer and said 'I hope I can get baptized in September maybe, I hope so'. I love her so much I get teary-eyed when I picture her getting into that font. I cannot wait for the day. We're shooting for the 26th. Ah I cannot wait.
Another sick thing that happened was we had a mall booth. Us and a couple other sets of missionaries and our ward mission leader took shifts throughout the night on Saturday and talked to people coming out of the movie theatre. A lot of people avoided us, and we had some bashers, but of course the very end of the night came the miracle. A lady and her daughter came out of the theatre because her daughter couldn't sit still. She came up to us and said she has some really good Mormon friends. Sister Fausett (my STL comp) talked to her for like 30 minutes about pretty much everything. She loved everything and asked all about baptism and wants to watch one! AH! Prayers are real my friends.
Also Elder Hamula from the 70 came and spoke to us for two days and presided in our Mission Leadership Counsel. He is super dope and I love his wife. I learned so much so I won't include a lot but I will say this personal revelation from my journal...
Revelation 12:11- "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
'We defeat Satan now by forgetting ourselves. We lose the fight when we take our eyes off of the work and focus on our deficiencies. Satan focuses so much on the selfishness- don't fall into that trap.' It is so easy to become selfish and to focus on what we are and what we are not. But a funny thing happens when we focus more outward, we become those things inward. That is something I really am going to work on.
Also a small shoutout to my mom and dad. I have a great testimony of prayer thanks to you. You have taught me by example to drop to my knees in the greatest and hardest times and I wouldn't know the significance of that relationship with my Savior otherwise. I know you have been praying for me so hard my whole life and now I am on a mission. I am on a mission because the Lord touched my heart, not because I am that good of a person. So thank you for all the prayers sent my way to unlock those blessings that were and are conditional in God blessing me with them through the act of prayer.
I LOVE YOU ALL THAT READ THIS BECAUSE THAT MEANS YOU HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT ME! STAY CUTE FRIENDS
