Transfer 4 here we come!
Holy Moly all can you believe that it has been another six weeks already? I honestly can not! Transfer calls have come and... I am staying in the Shawnee YSA ward!!! I am super excited about that! Alas, my dear companion is being transfered :( But she is still in the mission until she gets her visa! I know that she is going to do so many great things, she is such an amazing missionary and i learned so much from her. My new companion is named Sister Jones. I know nothing about her yet at all... so more next week. So ther is a video that i will send home soon and it will pretty much sum up Sister Jensen and I's companion. It is quite great and involves Sister Jensen and Cats. More later.
So i know i am terrible at sending the funny things home to you all, there are just so many funny things that happen and i don't have time to write them all and i am also not sure if they will be funny over email but a little summery of the fun things that happen here...
Sister Jensen Meows at every cat we see. Funny thing is she doesn't even like Cats. Yesterday while she was Meowing at a cat it started to follow us and climbed in our car. It was trying to curl up on our seat and come home with us. We had a difficult time trying to get it our, clearly Sister Jensen doesn't speak Cat as fluently as she thinks she does.
Sister Jensen and I also now speak OP. If you don't know what that is you might be able to google it! We are pretty good and it comes in handy when we get in tough situations, just start speaking Op and we can get right out of there. No just kidding we only speak Op in the car, we don't need people thinking that Mormons have a secret language!
Another fun thing Sister Jensen and I like doing is looking for opportunities to back the car in public. Most missionaries look for those pull through spots so that no one has to back the car out of the spot (a mission rule because some missionaries just can not drive) but we look for those opportunities to back the car in public. We just love watching people's faces as they try to figure out what we are doing!
Anyway that is just the weirdness of Sister Jensen and I. We have a good time what can i say! In other news Sister Jensen is so great and i am so excited that she gets to go serve in a family ward. I am sad that we won't be companions anymore but i know that she is going to go and do such great things and she is a wonderful missionary who will bless the lives of so many! I am excited to get to know my new companion Sister Jones as well. I am sure she is great :)
My testimony of the choices i make and faith has really grown this week. I know that Faith is a action word and that it is always forward moving. Faith will propel us to do what we need to. As we are exactly obedient and believe in the work that we are doing we will be able to do the work of the Lord. We will be allowed to witness miracles! I love being a missionary so much and am so glad that i am able to serve here and at this time. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan and as we have faith and follow that plan then we will be able to be tools in his hand to bring to pass great and marvelous things!
This weekend we were having a pretty rough day when the Shadle Park Elders (some Elders in our zone, or the town over from us) called us and asked if we could attend their baptism and teach the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and then invite everyone on a church tour. We said yes of course and we went! As we were there we testified of the restoration and then afterwards we were talking to the converts friends that came to her baptism. We invited them on a church tour. The wonferful girl being baptized was named Gina and she was 18. Most of her freinds that were there were teenage girls and so it was so cool that we were there to connect with them and take them on a church tour. We were able to relate to them in a way that the Elders wouldn't have been able to. We invited them all to be baptized and they said they would. So now they are being taught by the Elders. We were so excitied that we were able to be there and meet this wonderful young women!
I know that this church is true and that Heavenly Father cares about your missionary efforts. This is His work and he will help you as you share the gospel with those around you.
I love you all and hope you have a great week
Love Sister Robinson
