Hey you guys!!!
Well, first things first. Exciting news! There are now 3 of us! We just got Sister Chand Thursday and she is a peach! She lived in West Valley City, Utah for a year before her mission, but she grew up in Fiji! She speaks really good English, but she also knows Hindi and Fijian. She so funny and it's going to be a party of a transfer.
We had some good service this week. We were able to go to Samaritan and help organizing food and making snack packs. We are hoping to keep finding new opportunities to serve around and help.
Jerry is doing so amazing! We've started putting the program together for his baptism and he is patiently waiting for the big day. He's just so ready and I'm so excited!
We had the opportunity to meet with someone who has been talking with some missionaries virtually. We learned that she is outside our area, so we referred her to the Centerton 2nd elders, but we were able to have a good conversation with her and talk about a lot of things pertaining to the gospel.
Sydney, our recent convert, is doing well. She has recently been moved into the YSA ward and is taking institute. We were able to meet with her this week and introduce her to the missionaries in the YSA ward, which went really well.
We continue forward with finding, using Facebook as our biggest tool. We've had some amazing conversations and interactions with people and been able to help some people in many different ways.
Something new coming up! Our mission is starting an initiative called Be One. Similar to Light the World, there will be a calendar of simple things to do each day to help everyone who participates be one with God, their family, and their community. I'm excited be a part of it, even if it's just for a little bit. It starts on September 1st.
I've been going back and reading some of my old journals! Oh my goodness, guys, was I a silly goose who didn't know anything! I've changed so much since than and have learned so much! I've noticed I've become a lot less of a perfectionist and how as long as I'm doing my best, Heavenly Father will take care of the rest.
I hope you all are doing good. To you I say, adieu!
