Baptism, Burial, Boda

Well this week has been CRAZY! I practically have a calling in the ward here. I am the ward organist and the primary music director/ pianist. It's pretty great and I love it.

This week I played hymns and prelude music at a baptism, a burial (funeral), and a boda (Spanish for wedding) It was been a week of ups and downs. Shout out to my family. My 10yrs of piano lessons are not being wasted!

As a side note, I might be getting Emergency Transferred to a new area. We have a dear sister who is really sick and has to go home. But I will still be on this side of the mountains and serving in the same ward, just in the southern part of the ward boundaries (yes, they are that big). We don't know for sure who is going where but from what it sounds like, it will be me. So if you all are going to send letters, you can still send it to my Cedar Ave address because the Sister Missionaries in this ward eat dinner together every day so we see each other frequently. And then next Monday I will let you all know what's going on. Either way, the trio is getting split up and we are all so sad! I love Hna. Bendorf and Cardosa so dearly. But I know that I am getting comfortable in my area which means its time for change, some humble pie, and some spiritual growth. I'm excited to see what the Lord has to reveal.

We have had a lot of heart break this week. A lot of investigators deciding to no longer want draw closer to the Saviour. It breaks my heart because I know without a shadow of a doubt that this gospel is true and that we have the fullness of the gospel restored on the earth and that Christ is the head of our Church, as it should be. It just makes me so sad to know that people don't care anymore. We ran into a young man this week who literally has no idea what he believe or if he even has a purpose in life. Even after testifying and promising him that there is a purpose for all of us here on this earth, he still just felt so hopeless that God really wasn't there. I am so grateful for the hope that I have of an eternal family, and eternity with them and my Heavenly Father, and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I wouldn't trade that hope and knowledge for the world.

But we have faith, hope, and charity! This week is going to be amazing!

I love you all!
