Can you believe that Christmas is already here?
I can’t, but I’m loving all the Christmas music, so I’m not going to complain. I’m busy trying to #LighttheWorld, so hopefully ya’ll have already watched the video, if not, click on the link below and remember to help someone else have a good day!
PLEASE share this with others. What other way can you think of to celebrate the Savior’s birth than by helping someone else, just like He gave his life for others, we can give our time and energy for another.
This week was another one in the books. I loved it but it was mentally and physically and spiritually exhausting. One of our investigator’s daughters ended up in the hospital, it wasn’t a great situation but we were there with her for a while and because God is a God of miracles, she is doing fine now. But it was scary in the moment.
This week I was called to be a Sister Training Leader, which means I get to train other sisters around the mission on how to be great missionaries! Even though I’m still trying to figure that out myself, I’m excited to learn more. It will be a great learning opportunity and I’m headed to La Mirada, CA. It’ll be great. My new companion is Sister Davis! She is amazing, and I’ll tell you more next week. I’m sad I have to say goodbye to Sister Petelo. She is filled with grace and dignity and a quiet and strong faith that I haven’t found in anybody else. I hope one day that I can be like her. I’m grateful that I got to spend the past couple months learning from her.
I had to say goodbye to some pretty amazing people here in West Grove, but I know that it is part of life and part of being on a mission. The Gonzalez family will have my heart forever, and they are being blessed for their sacrifices and their faith. They have nothing to give except their love and that has been such a humbling experience for me.
Remember who you are, and remember the God can see who you can become. He knows what you need and who you need. I testify that Jesus is the Christ and that He gave Himself to give each of us the chance to live again. He is my Savior and my Redeemer and I will be forever grateful for that.
Love you all!
