C'est la vie!
So you know how my mission has been super crazy? Well it just got a little crazier!!! My new companion just got her visa to go to Brazil! So i am companion less for the next five weeks!!! So the stake has arranged for me to have a new companion every week from the young women in the stake. So for the rest of the transfer i will be conducting mini missions with sisters in the stake and teaching them how to be a missionary, while trying to do the work in my rather large ward! Haha so i would say i am a little stressed but at least i can say that my mission is not boring! I am really learning to rely on my Heavenly Father and the spirit and i am sure i will keep learning about that in the coming weeks as my companions are not set apart/ trained missionaries but it should be a learning and growing experience :) So that it is pretty much what is going on here. I know these next couple weeks will be a little different and i think i will probably be a little stressed but i know that it will be great and that we will see miracles!
My testimony of being self reliant really grew this week. When Elder Pieper Of the Seventy came to visit and taught us pretty much how to answer our own questions, i feel like my eyes were really opened and i know that i can answer my own questions. I have already found some great answers to my questions. I had a bunch of really great spiritual experiences with prayer recently and really feeling the presence of our Heavenly Father around me! I know that he loves me and is aware of me and this is His work and he will help us do His work!
I hope you were all able to see the broadcast on missionary work yesterday! It was so amazing if you didn't get to see it go on to LDS.org and watch it. It was super inspiring and i want all of you to watch it. I love being a missionary so much! I know that it is a privilege to be out on a mission and that this truly is His work that i am doing. I know that if we rely on Him, He will guide us to where we need to be and He will teach us what we need to learn. I love you all so much and i LOVE getting your letters! They honestly mean the world to me :)
I hope you are all doing well. Keep the Faith and remember that, "your future is as only as bright as your Faith!"- President Thomas S. Monson
Love you lots
