Transfer week!!! Sister Hodge and I will be staying together and we will be joined by Sister Worthington. We will be in a trio. In addition I will be serving as the Sister Training Leader over St. Lucia and Barbados. I am super excited for this transfer. This last transfer will be amazing.
Funny Story: On Thursdays we have our weekly planning. We had a great planning session and were ready to get to work. We went out to teach and had a good afternoon. After a few hours we went home for a bathroom break and we couldn't get into our apartment. The door was unlocked but the latch inside closed when we shut the door so we were still locked out. We had to go to the Elders to get a wire hanger so we could bend it into a hook and lift the latch up. We got in but it was an adventure.
We had a lot of cool experiences this week. We went out to a new area to see if we wanted it to be one of our focuses this transfer. In less than an hour we placed five copies of the Book of Mormon. We went out again on Saturday and placed seven more. We are definitely going to focus there next transfer. The problem is it is pretty far from the church but a lot of people have cars.
We also had a great lesson with Marla about faith. We read Alma 32 and talked about how to start our faith growing and how to keep it growing. She has been getting letters from previous sister missionaries and she said it has been helping her recognize answers to her prayers and questions. Thanks everyone who has been sending letters. It really does make a difference. It just shows how important it is to stay in touch with those you teach.
Miracle of the Week: We went out to Choisel (the new area) to meet with a great family in the branch. It turns out they have some less active cousins who are ready to change their lives and come back to church. They are great young men and they want to serve missions. We had a great lesson with them and they even came to church on Sunday. It was great.
Thanks for everything.
