First off, thanks so much for your emails every week! And thanks for being so interested in my investigators and stuff, I love being able to share what I can. That being said, unfortunately I'm way short in time today. We made the mistake of doing the district p-day activity before emailing, and now p-day is almost over! I'll share what I can, though a lot may have to wait till next week.
I'm loving being companions again with sister Day! Also, I think I found my travel buddy when I go to Europe in a few years! J We've actually made some crazy schemes for when we're back home, so it'll be fun to see which of those actually come to fruition (if any).
It is so weird to think that odds are I'll be transferred in a few weeks. My guess is I'll leave at the end of this transfer in the middle of April. I have mixed emotions about that idea. Ready to move on, but also never really ready to leave those you love. I've definitely grown attached here, and it's incredible the amount of charity being in a mission gives you for those you serve. Who'd have thought that 5 months here is going to be almost harder to leave than my years in Westmond? J I also would love to remain companions with Sis. Day for an extra transfer. I mean, who knows? Maybe I will be! Haha :)
I'm so grateful for the time that Sis Martin and I had to be companions. I know that I grew and learned a lot during our time together and from her personally. She's a great woman, who is in the right place. The Lord watches out for us, and we are truly on the Lord's errand.
So Jennifer just showed up at church 2 weeks ago. Completely alone! We were able to chat for a bit, and it turns out she was taking the lessons is California before she moved, but for some reason we never got a referral for her. Anyway, her sister is a member in California, and finally talked her into coming to the church, so she did! We've met now a few times, and we think that she should have a baptismal date by the next lesson on Thursday. We're hoping for mid-April! We invited her to pray about and pick a date last time we met, so we'll just finalize that this time. She's so awesome! Seriously, a golden contact (hopefully). I hesitate to say that until she's in the water, but she is pretty great! Hopefully I'll still be in Azle when she gets baptized!
Sorry, I don't really have time for anything about any other investigators today...
I love y'all so much! Thank you for the updates about everything, I love hearing it! You are in my prayers, daily. Thank you for the prayers y'all send my way.
