So this week went by even faster than the last! How is this happening! I'm glad you all saw me on the T.V. yesterday. Yeah I'm famous NBD (no big deal). That was SUCH a cool experience yesterday. I don't even think I can describe in words how I felt. Missionary work is the BEST. It got me so excited to go out in the field and help people come unto Christ. This gospel is incredible and everyone should know about it. Never feel embarrassed to share the gospel or bear your testimony ever. I am so grateful to be able to be a missionary at this time.
So the other Hermanas in my zone are leaving tomorrow and I am so sad. I'm going to miss them so much. We had a mini fiesta in our residence hall last night. We just sat there and ate candy, talked about all the good times we have had, shared funny stories, and bore our testimony’s to each other. They are going to be missed deeply. But we are planning a reunion in St. George when we all get home, so Julie can we borrow your condo in 18 months? haha
So here’s a funny story. The other night our Branch President's wife (Sister Wing) came in our room to visit with us a little bit before it was time to go to bed and she told us that we HAD to go look at the moon. She said it was called a strawberry moon and that it is the closest the moon will get to the earth and that we just had to go see it! It was about 10:20 and we aren't supposed to be outside after 9:30 so we were like "ahh, I don't know, it's kinda late." But she was so persistent. So we went outside to look at the moon (I know we are rebels, and it was georgeous by the way! Did you guys see it?). And a security guard came up to us and was like, "Sisters you know the rules." And we got in trouble. haha Sister Wing was very embarassed.
We got new roommates on Wednesday and they are the best! I love them already. They are hilarious. OH and good news we get a new district in our zone on Wednesday and there are four Hermanas and four Elders! YAY MORE HERMANAS. We are so excited! Oh and more good news, I get to host on Wednesday! Did I already tell you this? So I get to be that person that when you get out of the car and say bye to your family takes your luggage and helps you find your room and stuff. I am sooo excited I can barely hold it in. I even have to go to this special training Wednesday morning...intense stuff!
So another awesome thing! Me and Hermana Shannon Commited two of our investigator to baptism wahooo! One of them actually got "baptized on Saturday." We are so happy.
Random Fact: Every night the other Hermanas in my district (Hermana Jones and Hermana Barlow) come into Hermana Shannon’s and my room and put on like a two minute skit for us. It is HILARIOUS. They have done magic tricks for us, SNL skits, sang songs, done some impressions, so many funny things. It's so great I'm going to try and reccord it one of these times when they aren't paying attention.
I know. this. church. is. true. It is the best thing in my life (along with my family and friends of course). I know that if we hold on to that iron rod and endure to the end we will be saved and we will live with our Heavenly Father again. It's not going to be easy, but through our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ it is possible. I LOVE all of you. I have the best Family and friends in the world I am so blessed.
Love, Hermana St John
P.S. Watch the Mormon Message: Mountains to Climb. (I think thats what it's called.) Mountains to Climb It's INCREDIBLE. It's by Elder Eyring. It's unbelievable. Watch it. Love all of you!
