So, this week was great! Transfers happened. We lost Sister Aase and Sister Clarke, and gained Sister Deshauer from Mesa, and a newbie, Sister Bryce from..... Pima, AZ!!!! Sorry, Mom, I know you don't like their kind (Mom note: I actually like "their kind" very much but if you are from the Gila Valley you know about the small town rivalry thing :) ), but she's actually pretty nice. Anyhoo, some of the missionaries in our district and the one in Morrilton are doing a special musical number for our next mission meeting. It's a great song called My Kindness Shall Not Depart From Thee. Dad, I say you look up this song, it's very good for choral things. Also, Sister Deshauer wants to do a duet with me too once she found out I could sing. We may be doing Because he Lives from Lamb of God, if we can find someone to play piano.
In other news, Luis got confirmed yesterday! He also got ordained a priest, so he is all set. We are helping him towards a mission hopefully! Also, we were extraordinarily blessed this week! So ok, in Conway since I have gotten here, we have found two part-member families that went to the branch before. Total. Until this week. We found THREE part-member families that did NOT go to the branch before, in THREE DAYS. Like, it's incredible. The mission set a goal for 100 baptisms and 100 reactivation (never been done here, btw) and with these, we could get 3 reactivations, at least 5 baptisms, and above all that, bring a LOT of people back into the fold of God. Yeah, this week has been awesome.
Hope to hear from all of you soon! How are things where you are?
