What a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the stys are gone, and this is going to be a miraculous transfer! I ended up having 6 stys and let me tell you, I never want them again! Holy cow! Maybe stress was making them worse, even though I didn't feel very stressed I promise!
It has been an amazing few days with Sister Tobler. Truly the work is hastening even more it seems!
So that was day 1...It gets better...we went to the Stake Women's Conference which was amazing! Brenda came! Kirby wasn't able to and neither was Michelle, but both wanted to attend. It was so cool to see so many women united in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We then went and did some service at RARA and introduced Sister Tobler to Bob ;). We were then able to do some service at Kendal, a nursing home, by wheeling out the elderly people to look at antique cars. I met this adorable old lady named Virginia. She was spunky! I love working around elderly people. They are wonderful! They even had cloggers come and perform! So fun! We drove out to Glasgow next where we were able to see Rob and Heather for a split second! Yay! We then went to dinner at the Scottens. They are a funny couple. Their daughter, Petra, is gorgeous! We stopped by Sheri Wilcox for a bit and we are excited to see her more. We then saw Michelle Hughes again and showed her the video about the temple in the Ukraine. She is working to help orphans in the Ukraine with special needs. She is wonderful!
Today we plan to go sightseeing a bit and now that my eyes are finally better, I will be taking and sending pictures next week! haha
Sister Tobler is 5'4" from Payson, Utah. She did soccer and track in high school so she is helping me run. She taught people how to run so she is giving me tips. She also loves to cook healthy meals and eats healthy! She is such a blessing! We are excited for this transfer and for all that we get to do as missionaries! I get to be a missionary all day!
That was my week! Pretty exciting! I'm so grateful to be in Lexington. The ward is wonderful and we have one of the best bishops in the mission. I love being able to share the gospel all day! It is the best thing I could be doing!
I want each of you to know that I love this gospel. I love the joy it brings and the way it truly transforms us. The Atonement is real. I've seen so many blessings in my life because of the restored gospel and I know have so many blessings coming! I know that when we keep our covenants with God, we are blessed! We have peace, joy, and are promised eternal happiness. We may have hard days but they are brief with the knowledge of Heavenly Father's eternal plan for us. He knows each of us individually and our needs. He loves each of His children...and guess what...you are one of His children! I'm so grateful to know who I am. I am a beloved daughter of God!
I hope all is well. Remember someone in Virginia loves you! :) Have the best week ever! The church is true!
