"In my life I have learned that sometimes I do not receive an answer to a prayer because the Lord knows I am not ready. When He does answer, it is often “here a little and there a little” because that is all that I can bear or all I am willing to do." -Robert D Hales
Wow this week was so stellar! I can't believe I only have a few weeks left. But it is exciting and I am making every second count!
This Tuesday was my birthday and I had a great one! I can't believe I am getting so old. I am 21 now and my life is going well.
My old Bishop from Normandy came and took us out to lunch and brought his 3 sons but they didn't want to be in any of the pictures. We had a great time! He is the best!
Then that night, some of the YSA members threw me a fun little party! We had pizza and fruit and they made me a cake shaped like 21!
They are so sweet, I really enjoyed my birthday.
We even knocked Building 21!
Then on Wednesday we had Zone Conference and I sang a song, but I was really nervous so idk how good it was. But it was scary since I didn't get to practice that much and I didn't get to play for myself haha
But I bore my departing testimony which is very strange to me. We each get a minute to say our testimonies and mine was about how much I have been able to change, and I know that it is only through Christ I have been able to do that!
I feel very privileged and happy to have had such a great mission experience. It was sad to say goodbye to people since some of them I will not see again for a long time. Especially my trainee Sister Harris. She is so great, she brought me a teddy bear for my birthday present!
It was awesome.
Friday the STLs had a tradeoff and invited us to come get froyo with them and the Ocala 2 sisters. It was fun and we got a good pic!
I am really enjoying my last few weeks and I am working hard. I hope y'all are seeing miracles and staying happy!
Straightened my hair for church!
Love yall! See you in 3!
