Okay family it was so fun to hear from you this week! I am happy that the weather is good there. It is in the 40's here. It's freezing! I am bundled up most of the night. What a wimp huh haha. I can't believe that Mason is 6'4 now! Tell him Happy Birthday for me.
I have had such an amazing week and there is so much that I need to tell you. First off we found 2 new solid investigators this week. They are so open to learning more and have that great desire to know that the Book of Mormon is true. Erandi and Destiny's baptism went very well. As you can imagine I cried during the whole thing. They are 2 amazing examples of Faith. They each bore their testimonies at the end and you could really feel the spirit as they spoke. We took them out to dinner afterwards and they big thing they were excited about was partaking of the sacrament. It made me think about when I take the sacrament. Do I get really excited about it every week? We also took them to the temple yesterday. It was so beautiful! We took them to the Temple Visitor Center and it was so neat because in 1 year she and her husband can be sealed for time and all eternity! I told her that I will be there. Since they are moving to Georgia today I will have to get me a plane ticket there after my mission. Erandi took us out to dinner after the temple and we talked to Destiny about serving a mission. She said that she would love to go when she is 19. She says that she would like to go to Canada on her mission. I really have such love for this family. They have strengthened my testimony and I know that we will be friends forever!
Okay fambam I am getting a Facebook! Mom, I need you to send me my password because I forgot it. I am so excited for this next stage in missionary work. I will have the opportunity to teach lessons via Skype as well. The facebook is for proselyting purposes only so I can only chat about gospel subjects. I will let you know when more information comes but I am going to start setting everything up tomorrow. I will also be getting an iPad next month. My very own! Weird huh! My companion and I will also get an iPhone.
Big news!! Okay a couple of days ago the assistants called me and asked me if I would attend MLC this past Friday. I told them I would be there but I was so confused. Then 2 nights ago President Riggs called me and told me that this Thursday I will be the new Sister Training Leader! This means that I will go on multiple exchanges with Sisters every week and help the President with Sisters needs. It's like a Zone Leader but Sister form. I was really surprised when they told me. I am excited for this next step in my missionary work and I know that the lord will qualify me. Please tell people to not send letters to my Centreville address. I will email you guys hopefully this coming Friday and tell you what my new address is.
Love Sister Smith
