Woohoo!! Baptism!!

December 5, 2016

Hello, Family and friends!!!

It was a good week here in Nebraska!! We had our first real snow fall, so that was fun :) But... It is all melted now. This week will be super cold, though! Apparently it wont get above freezing all week (because of the wind chill). So, that is exciting!!

Yes, transfers happened again this week! I am with my baby, Sister Hall!!!! It is funny because I was her trainer, but now I get to train her as a Sister Training Leader! My posterity is just following the trend :)

Transfer week is always super crazy for us, so we had almost no time to do anything. But, we were able to make the Trail Center Schedule for all of the Sisters, and do a little orientation for all of the newer sisters. President took two Trail Center Sisters and put them full-proselyting(Sister Orton included, she is still a Sister Training Leader, she just isn't at the trail center. She will be back though :)  ) Then, he put in 3 full-proselyting sisters as Trail Center Sisters. Kind of a crazy transfer, but everything is great!

Saturday afternoon, President was able to get EVERY SINGLE sister in the mission together, and we had a private meeting with Sister Oscarson, the General Young Women President. Oh my goodness, it was such a good meeting!!! She is such a sweet woman, and she definitely inspired all of us. She talked a lot about how challenges are the way that God shapes us. She told us that God truly knows our potential, and has our whole life planned according to His will, and so we need to rely on Him, and trust Him. We need to keep the commandments and make the gospel a priority in our lives, forever. It was an incredible experience. I was even able to give her a hug!

Saturday night was KALE'S BAPTISM. That was awesome!!!! It was a neat experience. SO MANY people were there. Our ward mission leader got up and asked everyone who has participated in His conversion to raise their hands, and pretty much the whole room lifted up their hands. It was neat to see that. He is so fellow-shipped by the ward, and they all just adore him and his funny personality. He even got up yesterday in testimony meeting, after his confirmation, and thanked everyone for all that we have done for him. It was more of a "thank-mony" than a "testimony", but it was still sweet, haha. He is a funny guy, and is so excited to receive the Aaronic Priesthood and to do baptisms in the temple.

This week will be busy, too! I actually get to participate in a big Christmas fireside at the Trail Center, so I am excited. :) One of the senior Sisters actually recorded the song I am singing, and sent it to me to send everyone since you wont be there. It isn't the best recording, so don't judge! But I hope as you listen, you will be able to feel the spirit and feel the true meaning of Christmas.

I love you all and I hope you have a good week :) Thanks for all of the support you show me each week. It means a lot :)
