Sunrise at the Lincoln Memorial...Sister Bullock's letter Nov 15,2012

Hey everybody!
This week has been completely crazy! I say that every week, but it really has been crazy this week. But I'm loving every second of it :) Michael is doing soo well! The other day, he came to us and told us that he didn't think he was ready to be baptized! My heart broke! But we talked to him and asked him if he had asked Heavenly Father if he was ready, and we also read Mosiah 18 together. After that he was feeling a bit better, and committed to pray about it. The next day he called us and said he is ready and set to be baptized on the 25th! Ahhhh! We're so excited! He has been meeting with missionaries for the past 6 months! He's ready :) He has such a sincere desire to follow Christ :) Anyone who talks to him will be able to see his sweet testimony! Sad news: Ismael is not getting baptized on the 25th :( We found out Lucy and her ex share custody, and since Ismael is only 10, we need the fathers consent to baptize him. This is a major problem because the father is Muslim and wants Ismael to be Muslim. And Lucy hasn't told her ex anything about meeting with us because she thinks he'll try to take Ismael away from her if he finds out. Complicated and sad story of the week :( But! It will all work out. I know Lucy and Ismael will be baptized together, and at the right time. I am at peace with all of this now. Hmm... Rafi is coming back to church! He said he is tired of living a  life away from God, and really wants to turn things around! We're so happy for him!

The Visitors Center is coming together nicely! We have a brand new temple exhibit and an "I'm a Mormon" display! They're so cool! The back is coming together nicely, too! Should be done by the end of next week... Maybe. (If you have time, go to, and watch the I'm a Mormon Dionne video. It'd my favorite because of what she says at the end!)

Today we went to DC! It was crazy fun! We woke up at 4 and went to the Lincoln memorial to watch the sun rise! Super pretty! I LOVE this place :) Pictures will be coming your way soon! 

Transfers are next week! How insane is that?? I've (almost) completed my first transfer! Time flies when you're having the time of your life! :)

I love and miss you all! Thank you for your love and support! I will see you soon! Be strong and faithful, our Heavenly Father is anxiously waiting to bless you! Also, my scripture today is 2 Nephi 4:20-21 :) Just in case you were wondering!
-Sister Bullock

2 Nephi 4:20-21

20 My God hath been my asupport; he hath led me through mine bafflictions in the wilderness; and he hath preserved me upon the waters of the great deep. 
 21 He hath filled me with his alove, even unto the bconsuming of my flesh.
