Breaking news!!So in a turn of events- Sister Patten and I are now in a Tripan! One of the STLs was emergency transferred to another area, so we get to hang out with her companion, Sister Griffith, for the last two weeks of the transfer. She is such a hard worker! We are lucky to have her. This also means we are covering both Florence and Russellville during this time. In total, that's an area that takes about two hours to drive across... We will never run out of places to tract (:
The ward party was on Friday! The theme was the S.S. Florence Family Fun Ship.... cheesy huh!? But we had so much fun. So many people that we've been teaching came and opened up to the ward. Everyone was dancing and having a blast. I think it was one of the first times I have really connected with the Florence Ward.The Russellville Sisters had a baptism for their investigator Lucille on Saturday! We were able to have a lesson with her the day before. It's cool to be working in both areas because we have a lot more lessons with progressing investigators.
Yesterday church went really well! All the missionaries in the ward were assigned to speak. My talk was on Missionary Work and The Atonement. I really enjoyed studying for and preparing for it.We told all of our investigators that we were speaking, which worked pretty well considering 8 of them came to church! We may have a baptism this Saturday for Charlotte and two other people we've been teaching. I feel so blessed to be able to watch others grow closer to the Savior.
This week I have found a lot of comfort in the hymn: "Where Can I Turn For Peace?"
I have definitely found my peace in Jesus Christ and in constant prayer to Heavenly Father.
I love this gospel. I love Alabama.
Have a great week everyone!
