The drought is over! We finally have a bit of time to email! Sorry this one is a little late, yesterday was Memorial Day so the library was closed.
But first, a little re-cap of what happened the week before last:
SISTER DIN WAS BAPTIZED! It was the first baptism of my mission, and it was amazing to see! We got there early to fill up the font, and apparently the Anaheim mission comes down once a quarter to give temple tours at the Newport Beach temple, so a bunch of them were there, and I ran into someone I knew from high school, Sister Harper Forsgren! It was the most random thing ever, because I had no idea she was even on a mission. Anyways, the baptism was great, and it was a really spiritual experience.
Now, last week.
It was great. Elder Prevette had his departing interview and leaves next Wednesday. It’s going to be weird to see him go home, but at least we get to drive him to the airport! I have learned so much from him, and it has been great to get to know him.
We have also started teaching another person, Brother R. He’s pretty cool. He has come to church with us a few times. He was referred to us by a Utah number, and we got in touch with him the next day and started meeting with him about once a week. Today we are helping him out with some service! Cant wait!
But, I continue to learn more and more about the things the Lord has in store for all of us, and one amazing thing I have come to realize about Heavenly Father is that he is the same kind of person yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and that no matter what, we can always rely on Him for anything we need.
Well, that’s it for this week y’all!
Love you, miss you,
