Dear Family and Friends,
This was such an amazing week! I hit my one year mark this week on August 20, 2015. Honestly, I can't believe it has been a year. I feel like it was only yesterday I was at the MTC. I've learned so much in this year and have been able to reach so many people. I'm excited for the remaining time I have to work with all my heart, might, mind, and strength.
Breanna was baptized on Saturday and it was a beautiful baptism. She looked beautiful in her hand made baptismal dress. Her mom Ashley is a fantastic seamstress and she looked like an angel. Sister Mansell and I sang an a capella version of "Abide with me, Tis Eventide" and it was beautiful. I love singing and it has been really fun to share that talent on my mission.
Fallah is doing so well! We had a lesson with him this past week and he taught us the law of tithing and he is so excited to get baptized and he is so prepared. He wants to follow the commandments, it is the true desire of his heart. It has been an honor to teach Fallah.
We also had a less active member we've been working with for a while come to church this Sunday!!! He brought his young daughter with him and said how he remembers as a young child learning about the gospel and he can't deprive his daughter of being raised in the gospel! It was such a happy day!
I also got to see some friends from Fargo, they were here doing their stake temple day on Saturday and it was so awesome to see them again. It's kind of a funny story actually. We drove up to the church, the temple and the church share a parking lot, and I saw Sister Brooks' car in the lot. I got so excited and as we were walking into the building I said a prayer that I would be able to see her. Well, ask and ye shall receive-- I entered the building and saw Sister West then followed her into the nursery and there was Sister Brooks and Sister Tomola! It was great!
I love being a missionary and I'm excited for this coming week! We have Fallah's baptism, exchanges, and a training from the President. Talk you next week!
