This week has been INCREDIBLE. Oh my goodnight. Seriously it has been so good. I hope that everyone's weeks have been good!We have been through a bit of a roller coaster preparing Jacob for baptism. He doesn't think that he is ready for all the good that can come to him in his life by joining the church, so he has struggled as he has been learning to believe that he can be happy. We had an incredibly powerful lesson with him last night though. He had a blessing and there was no way that he could deny that this is what he wants in his life and that he is ready for baptism. We love him so much and are so excited for him!
Hi Farnsworth Family. Its sister Anderson (Basically Sister Farnsworth's best friend). I just wanted to say hi and I love your daughter so much! She is an INCREDIBLE missionary!
Friday, I got to go on exchanges with Sister Whittaker!!! We have been joking about that and talking about that for our WHOLE missions, so it was a blast to actually be able to go out with her. She is an incredible missionary, and we saw so many miracles all day. I am so grateful for the example she is to me (and that we have so much FUN together!). We taught back to back lessons from about 12 until 830 at night, and it was so fun to get to be in a family ward again....wonder what transfers will bring!
Saturday morning was the grand opening of the gingerbread festival. It was CRAZY. The mayor of Omaha and 2 of the stake presidents came for the opening and had a ribbon cutting ceremony. It was a little insane the night before because we had to get everything completely ready, not to mention that the PR people had asked the sisters to have an hour worth of music to perform while people were looking around....needless to say it was a lot of work and a lot of prayers, but it worked perfectly! That's what happens when Heavenly Father is in charge! It feels a lot more like Christmas than the week of Thanksgiving around here though!!!
We have seen so many miracles this transfer in Loess Hills. I am so grateful to be able to be an instrument in the hands of God in bringing His children to Him again.
I love you all so much! Thanks for being the best family and friends a sister missionary could ask for ;)
