GOOD NEWS! I am staying!!!! Sad news, Sister Moody is dying (going home). I love her so so sooooooooo much and am so sad to see her go, but we are going to meet up at BYU after the mission!
Honestly, I am really relieved to be staying here for another transfer. It is difficult to move every 6 weeks and this will be my second transfer in an area since being in Fruita.... Now I just need to have a companion for more than a transfer..... Maybe its me, Lol!😬
Things have been pretty great here. The work is really picking up and we are busy from dawn to dark. We are exhausted and freezing by the end of the day, but so satisfied with this work. Honestly, I love the Hispanic culture. They are so very loving and hospitable, even if they don't want to hear our message. Our ward is really starting to get on fire with missionary work and we have been having great support from the members these last two weeks. We have been revamping the ward this entire transfer and are starting to see the fruits of our labors. Our area is SO big that its hard to get members to lessons since a lot of them don't drive. And recently we divided our area into quadrants and it has been so helpful to the work. We have 4 sets of missionaries here, two sets of elders and two sets of sisters and we are BUSY. A set of each are assigned to the North part of our area and also the same in the South. It's really a smart set up.
This last week we picked up a former investigator who is SO ready to be baptized, she even asked us if she could be baptized. We almost fell out of our seats! I am so excited! She has been reading the Book of Mormon for months and lost our number and was praying that she would be able to hear from us. We showed up two weeks later. God's timing is perfect!
I hope you all are safe and warm this season.... Though I'm not too worried about ya'll on the Peninsula in Washington. The humid air is a saving grace for you all!
Fun Fact: I ate Menudo last night. Wanna know what it is? Tripe.... which is a fancy word for cow stomach. Yeah.... First and last time. Lol
