Sooo you know when you swing through the drive thru because you're super hungry and you're just plowing down fries and you get sad when they're all gone but then you look in the bag and find a couple more?!
Well, my week was a little like that.
Tuesday we had a nice long chat about how we can improve the mission and President H said something I loved. He said something like, "It's not about moving up or down, but moving FORWARD". Ya.
Wednesday was almost the best thing since sliced bread. Our mission got together and watched a worldwide broadcast for all full-time missionaries from the general authorities. As usual, lots of good things were said and felt but something that really stood out to me was how vital the spirit is.
We don't know exactly what people are going through; but the Lord does. We don't know exactly what they need to hear; but the Lord does. He speaks to us through the Holy Ghost to the people... we are just the mouthpiece. Something Elder Bednar said stood out: "Teaching is not talking. It is listening and observing." Hmm, good stuff.
The broadcast really re-boosted my soul, seeing my people re-boosted my heart, and to make things rock even more, that night we were visiting over at Gina's and her friend (that we know pretty well) finally said, "Sisters. I think I'm ready to take the lessons and be baptized."
*DROP THE MIC* <3 <3 <3 happiness.
Thursday was sub-par but we've been playing basketball in the mornings and also I don't suck at parallel parking anymore.
Friday was fr3@k*ng awesome.
Our investigator Rebecca had us over for dinner and her Armenian boyfriend was there. He's been on missionary radar forev but is hard to catch with his work schedule. But we're homies so we finally just asked him when we can start teaching him and holla for a dolla we taught him the first lesson the next morning :)
Rebecca's baptism date is postponed because the divorce won't be finalized in time but it got me thinking... maybe this is the way it's supposed to be. She and her fiance can get married and then baptized together. I sure do hope.
But all good things do come to an end here in probation. I got hit with a cold so I've been fighting that off.
But all-in-all I'm super happy and my heart is content.
Sorry for the massive email this week, it was just too good.
But hey, stay cool babes.
Love you more than edamame!
xo, sis D
