Today it is with gratitude and thankfulness in my heart that I acknowledge all the other emails that I was unable to respond to this week, and also the fact that I'm not being transferred. Yay!I really wasn't sure if I would be. And I'm grateful that through the knowledge that I am staying in Rocky Mount for another transfer it has been re-confirmed to me that there is still a great work to be done here, and I have a part to play in it.
Also, Let me tell you, Spring season is spider season. And on the way to zone conference we unrolled the window a little ways and a spider that was hanging on for dear life on the outside of the car zipped right in the unrolled window. Do you know how hard it is to drive straight when you and your companion are screaming? Really hard! (I did it though.) It was on Sister Felt's side, so every time she screamed I screamed, (and it was on my Birthday so we all screamed for ice cream) And it was a frightening experience. Good news though. We were almost there, it climbed into the place between the door and window, and then it had the opportunity to escape while we were spiritually fed inside the church building. I reminded Sister Felt last night that we hadn't ever found it, so it must not be in the car anymore.
That's the story. :)
We prayed fervantly that none of our plans would fall though, and that we would be able to teach the people we had planned to see according to the direction of the Spirit. We were able to find opportunities to serve, teach the principles that we had studied, and extend commitments to each person that we came in contact with. We felt so incredibly blessed to be able to have such a wonderful day. Especially since the next day was really gloomy, and awful.
Opposition in all things.
So now I'm out of time because I was emailing nice things to my friend named Sister Newbold.
Missions are awesome. I will love the people that I have served with FOREVER!.
I love you.
Talk to you TTYL.
Told you I'm funny. :)
Love to the moon and back! (or farther. Like infinity, google, trillion, zillion, eternity.)
