SHE IS GETTING BAPTIZED ON SATURDAY!!!!!!!
I am so stoked for her. She is absolutely amazing. When
our District Leader interviewed her, he asked, "Are you sure you aren't already
a member?!" She is absolutely wonderful.
The rest of this week was
decent. I'm just trying to help Sister Goble get situated in the Branch.
Everyone really likes her so far! We are gonna work hard and be a great team, I
can just feel it. :)
So, I wanted to share a spiritual thought this
week! So all the YSA missionaries are on a rotation where we get to go to
institute. This week was our week to go, and it was awesome. We were talking
about the Book of Mormon and Nephi asking his brothers if they remembered
things. The institute teacher showed us the hebrew word for remember. The
literal translation of the word is "Our first leader who was nailed in the hand
and bled." If that translation is true...how amazing! The word "remember" even
reminds us of our Savior.
There was something else I was thinking
about this week. Yesterday for a rest hymn we sang "A Poor Wayfaring Man." There
is a line in the second verse that says "I gave him all." I was thinking about
that...do I give Him all? Too often I find myself making God's work about me. I
don't know if it is completely possible to give Him all as a mortal being, but I
sure am working on it. I look forward to the day when I can truly have an eye
single to His glory. A lofty, but worthy goal, wouldn't you say?
Well, that's about all for this week. We are staying busy
working with Less-Actives, Kat and Joe, Yerry, and Erika as well as trying to
find new investigators. I love being a missionary! I can't believe that I'm a
third of the way done with my mission!!! That's craziness. I don't look forward
to the day when I'll have to take my badge off. But, until then, Hurrah for
Israel! Love you all so much.
