This week has been absolutely crazy and we only have about 20 minutes to email so I'm going to keep this short!
Stephen was baptized! He is incredible. I'm grateful that I was lucky enough to pick up the phone the day he called the church. He is a miracle!
Savannah is doing AWESOME. She is on track to be baptized this Saturday! It's a blessing to see how much peace the Plan of Salvation has given her. What amazing knowledge we have, and often take for granted.
Shawn is progressing well towards April 15th! I love his little brother Kevin too.
Brother Foote and his family came to visit and took us to this amazing restaurant on top of a tower!!!
I got to spend a few days with Sister Beck this week! She is amazing and probably the most genuine person I have ever met. I love her.
We saw Charlotte yesterday! It was her 1 year mark of baptism. She is going to try to come to church next week!(:
I have a new companion as of today! Her name is Sister Beus. We actually came out together but haven't been able to serve around each other until now.(: I love her so much!
Ether 12:6 says:
"And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith."
I feel that I can truly testify of that verse this week. Although I've definitely seen some trials recently, I've also received many witnesses that this work is true. Miracles happen every day. The spirit of God is alive in Florence, AL! I love this gospel so much.
Some Medical problems will be forcing me home April 6th. I guess you could say it'll be the most bitter sweet Birthday I've had. I"m so grateful for my mission and I wouldn't take one minute of it back! I love y'all and I'll talk to you next week!
