THIS WEEK WAS AMAZING!!!!! We had an amazing mission conference, an amazing miracle filled week, and best of all, this week we are gonna have a baptism! Wahoo!!! So, first...the conference…
President Kearon, from the UK came and talked to our mission (in only two sessions, and I went to the big one, so basically there were about 170 missionaries in one spot....powerful!) Anyway, he is absolutely amazing, and he has awesome stories. He is actually a convert, and now is in the first quorum of the seventy, in the Europe area presidency and his testimony is absolutely through the roof!!! I really can't explain how it was other than amazing.
We also have a baptism this week.....it's a guy from Australia, actually, and he is really great. I'm so excited:) He was a reference from the office. It's gonna be great!! We still need to teach him some stuff, but he will be great. He is super shy though, and hates big crowds, but he still will come to church, which is really a miracle as well, because he walks everywhere… because he hates the busses and metro but, he lives about 3 hours walking away from the church!!!! He is amazing, and really wants the gospel in his life.
I just have one more thing I wanted to share with you about this week. Elder West is absolutely hilarious, and he is so well meaning, but sometimes the statement "no good deed goes unpunished" applies to him too much. We were in a elevator with a member, leaving from a visit, and Elder West noticed a hair that was sticking to this members chin, and so, being the good person he is, he tried to pull it off. Well....it happened to be attached, and as a result the member just yelled and needless to say, I died laughing, and Elder West was apologizing as much as he could and the member was laughing almost as hard as I was. It was pretty good, but it also made me realize how good of a person Elder West really is, and how blessed I am to be his companion. he is so great, and we have so much fun:)
Thank you so much for your prayers and support! Love ya!
