This week has been awesome and awful all at the same time! I love my trio! We laugh all the time and work really hard :) It's really the best! Sister Lawrence is hilarious! Today was "Islander Day" where all 3 of us dressed in authentic Pompeian skirts and learned to hula! It's been a fun day so far. Sister Wankier has one of the best laughs I've ever heard! And she is such a wonderful missionary! Sister Kaarma (her trainee) is one lucky Sister! Oh, by the way, Sister Kaarma will get here on the 16th :) We're so excited!
This week is the first time I've been sick on my mission :/ I thought I escaped Festival without catching the flu, but it hit me back on Friday. Saturday and Sunday I was basically out of commission (we worked at the Visitor Center those nights and I was sent to the sick room to sleep instead of work). But, luckily since I got my flu shot before coming on the mission, it wasn't too bad of a case :) I am on the mend and getting healthier everyday!
MICHAEL IS GETTING BAPTIZED ON SUNDAY!! We're so excited for him! After 8 months of lessons, he's finally taking that step forward! He's so ready for it and so excited about it! He knows he's ready and feels that now is the time :) I'm so proud of all the changes he's made in his life! He has come a loooong way! It's so incredible! It amazes me the things people will do to find truth in their lives. I love being am missionary!
Also, back during Festival, I decided to start keeping a miracle journal. Every night before bed, I write one miracle for the day. I didn't think anything would really come of it, I just thought that it would be something fun to read in the post-mission years. But I read it the other night and I realized just how many miracles happen a day without me even noticing. Our Heavenly father blesses us so much, and we don't even see it half the time! I am definitely making a new goal to recognize blessing and miracles everyday. I don't want to let any of them slip away unnoticed anymore. I want to be able to thank my Father in Heaven for ALL my blessings, not just a few of them.
OH! And I love hearing about how small of a world it is! I seem to find connections to everyone everywhere I go! Whether it's to me, or to someone I serve with! It's so funny! Keep the connections coming :)
I love you all! Thank you for your love and support! Stay strong and faithful in the gospel :)
