March 10, 2014

 I hope you all had a great week!  I'm sorry I'm a little short on time today, but I'll try and write down as much as I can remember!  This week nothing really new happened.  Same old same old haha, except.....drum roll please.................L IS GETTING BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!1 DAJDFLKAJEROQWERJAKDJL;FJ!!!  We had set a date for her to recieve her answer by, and that day was on friday, March 7th.  And so when we went to teach her and were talking with her, she told us that she believed us.  That everything we had taught her she thought was true.  We had helped her to recognize that we don't just all of a sudden wake up one day feeling different, that rarely happens.  But that answers usually come gradually over time.  And one day we can look back and realize the change that had occured.  And that is exactly what has happened with L.  We have been working with her tons, and she has already overcome loads of opposition with her fiance and his family causing contention, and so she basically had to choose between God and her fiance, and she chose God.  So her wedding is officially off, and she is officially getting baptized.  She is so amazing.  She is only 28, haha so its weird cause its like she is one of my sisters or one of my friends.  Thats like what it feels like whenever we are over there.  And she has all of these really cool hidden talents.  haha like she breathes fire!!  Yep you heard me right!  She took lessons to be one of those cool people that breathes and works with fire.  She is going to teach us next week.  And she is a trapeez (me kno goode wit speelin) lady.  hahahah she is so cool!  And the branch loves her!  Our branch president loves her, and she is just so great!  I'm so excited for her to get baptized!  She will get baptized on March 21st, and I know that she is so ready for this.  She told us that this gospel has given her perspective.  Its helped her through this hard time in her life, and that 2 months ago she was completely different.  And that is exactly what the gospel does to people.  It changes them, if they let it.  It gives people perspective, that this life isn't it.  That there is more.  And it helps people through their toughest trials.  Thats the beauty of the message of Christ- We are not alone, and we don't have to go through it alone.  I love being a missionary and being able to share this great message with others.  To litrally see the change in people's life is amazing.  Its the best thing that I could be doing. 
ANYWAYS.  I had to give another talk in church yesterday, it was 20 minutes long!  Gosh.  Since the branch is so small they run out of people to do things. haha.  but its fine, I mean I have LOADS of free time to write a 20 minute talk, so no big deal, right? ha.....ha.  Yesterday was really really warm, but its cold again today, no surprise.:)  Things are going great!  I truly love Sister S!!!!  It feels like I'm serving with my best friend!  We get along so well, its weird.  But really, she's great, and I love it here!  Every night we pray that we won't get transferred!  haha.  But who knows.
President called us again this morning and told us how he was so proud of little old louth hahah.  Things are looking up here in Louth!  Now we just got to go out and find more people!  I hope you all have a great week!  Love ya!
