Transfer Calls

I am seriously not going to be keeping track of time anymore. Its just sad knowing I don't have much time left to dedicate my time to the Lord and be singing the music of the gospel constantly!

This week we will be getting transfer calls so as usual, if you are gonna send mail, send it no later than tomorrow. I don't know if I am staying or going. Honestly, the chance is 50:50. I want to stay so badly, but if I need to be transferred, the Lord knows where I need to be and I will trust in Him. I have never had such blind faith in the Lord. I love it.

Next week there probably wont be an email. I will let Sue and Steve know my transfer news through a friend so hopefully you can ask them what it is. I will try to email what the news is Monday but that will be about it. We only have 15mins to email family next week.

Sorry this email is so short. We are heading up to Booth Falls for a District P-day. We are trying to soak up the last days of warmth before the snow dumps within the next month or so.

I don't normally like to do this because I like to keep confidentiality of the people I am teaching, but right now, this family REALLY needs prayers. Betty and Charlie. They are a mom and a son. She is a single mom, works 50+ hours a week and has incredible faith. Her son Charlie has Tuberous Sclerosis and he has a lot of seizures especially during the night. He is 10 and an absolutely wonderful kid. They have a baptismal date for October 8th and they need all the prayers they can get. Hermana Young and I are absolutely in love with them and they are the elect here in Vail. The adversary is working so incredibly hard on Betty right now and really testing her faith because Charlie's seizures are getting really bad and more frequent. And when he is having a good day, his medication makes him have some behavioral issues that sometimes are uncontrollable. I wish I could convey how much love I have for this brother and sister of ours. Please remember them in your prayers. I know that there is power in numbers when it comes to prayer. We need a miracle and that is exactly what we are praying for!

I will attach a picture of them in my next email so you know who you are praying for.

I love you all and hope you know that the Lord loves you even more. When things get hard, don't get discouraged, get excited, because that means there are blessings JUST around the corner.

A sunny hello to you all!

I won't lie. This was incredibly difficult but there were still blessings and joy to be found.

On Tuesday we had a wonderfully uplifting Zone Conference and on Wednesday we got to go to the temple. It was such a long day, but I would sacrifice ANYTHING to go to the temple and be in one of the holiest places on earth.

This week my companion and I decided to go to the boundaries of our area to a place called Redcliff. The drive up there was absolutely breathtaking.

So the pictures-
1) My mom, Sister Kenworthy, and I after the temple. I am going to miss this girl. She dies this transfer. I love her so stinking much.
2) I am a grandma! Sister Cardosa is training! How crazy!
3) 4 generations of missionaries!
4) This is an abandoned mining town on the way up to Redcliff. I can't remember the name of it. I am ITCHING to go explore there.

 1) So these are in a little town we cover called Minturn. They're "Modern Bathrooms". They're actually kinda cool.... I'm still trying to figure out what makes them "modern" though.
2) More bathroom pics.
3) Something a little more beautiful. Part of our drive up to Redcliff. This little town is a GEM! Lot's of 7th Day Adventists.

PS. I killed a black widow spider this morning. Humanity is saved. You may continue on with your happy lives.

Holy. Cow! These last few weeks have been CRAZY.

So to clear up confusion because I know a lot of you have questions. Yes, I WAS going to come home at the end of this transfer. Now, I am NOT coming home. There were some situations that I thought needed my attention and time back home, but it has all been taken care of by my wonderful Stake and Ward. I love you all so much, I will never be able to even begin to explain.

I WILL be coming back in December as originally planned.

I am soooooooooooo happy to be staying here on my mission. These last few weeks have been so hard in praying to know what to do. I have never spent so much time on my knees in prayer. As Abraham Lincoln said, "I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go." When we don't know what to do, we go to our Heavenly Father because He knows. And sometimes, both decisions are well with him, he just wants you to use your agency and choose. These have been some of the hardest weeks of my mission. But I know that I am where I need to be and I am so blessed to be able to serve my mission full term!

I hope you all are having wonderful weeks! Please know that I love you all dearly!

PS- For those of you in my home ward, invite the sister missionaries over for a family home evening or for an 8pm at your house. Let them know something you want to know more about or something that is troubling your heart. They will prepare and they will be instruments in the hands of the Lord and you will feel of His love through them!

I love you all!
