Hello Everyone!I have survived another transfer week and it has been great as always. My last few days with Sister Sommerfeldt were filled with lots of little exciting adventures and miracles.
Being with Sister Sommerfeldt has been a blast, we both were able to learn so much and see so many miracles happen with the people that we were teaching. A very sweet member who visits Temple Square often gave us a gift card to the Cheesecake Factory and so to celebrate our last days together we went and bought a slice of cheesecake. it was our snack while we finished watching the district videos that are part of the training program for new missionaries.
So Monday we found out our new companions and assignments and then on Wednesday was transfer day. I'll admit I was more nervous for Sister Sommerfeldt's new companion then I was for my own. But luckily when it comes to the mission, Heaven's in charge of what happens.
So meet my new companion,
Sister Hara from Japan....she's actually the one behind me with the necklace.
She's the best. She has been out a little over three months and is excited to go go go. Our assignment is Guest Services again. President must think I'm really good with computers because he seems to keep putting me back in the basement with all the assignments that have to do with a computer. I'm not sure what Heavenly Father is trying to teach me but obviously I haven't learned it yet. It's good though, I have the opportunity to serve with some amazing sisters so it's all worth it. (also been called as a District Leader)
The last few days we have been able to take a few Japanese tours...so far all I can say is my name in Japanese, and it's still not the greatest. But practice makes permanent. It's going to be a great transfer though, she has some great people who she has been teaching. I gave all of my investigators to Sister Sommerfeldt because I wanted to make sure she always had people to teach and so we are working on building our teaching pool back up. We're not too worried about it, Heavenly Father always provides things for us to do and people for us to teach. Just this morning actually we saw His handy work, our P-day schedule doesn't have any square time scheduled in because of our assignment but we do have a tiny it of Teaching Center time before our preparation day starts and so last night when we were planning we were both very determined to find a new investigator today. So with all the faith we could muster we prayed and asked God for a miracle today. Well, like I said God always provides, in the short time we were in the Teaching Center we received a chat from a individual who was given a mormon.org pass along card. She didn't know a lot about the church, wasn't really religious herself, but she told us that she did believe in God. After some chatting back and forth we testified that God was real and that He can actually have a huge part in our lives if we let Him. We asked her if we could call her to tell her about how we came to know that this was true and to teach her how to can find out as well. She was super grateful and excited to hear from us soon. God is just too good to us :)
Well this upcoming week is going to be great! A lot of hard work and miracles ahead.
I hope you all are staying cool, I'll admit I'm ready for fall to begin. :)
Thanks for always keeping me in your prayers. The work will continue to go forth!
