As i said last week i am being
transferred and really it has been hard and not the best thing to have to do! I
really don't want to leave, but i know that i will learn more and will grow
anywhere i go. I am needed elsewhere and the sister replacing me needs her here
now! Now as much as that sounds good! I still don't want to go!!!
I have had a crazy week and not a lot of
visits and really we had slow week. I have been in packing mode all week and
tried to help get Sister Ibarra ready to train! I know that Sister Ibarra will
We had a great movie night with a less active
family and watched Meet the Mormons on Monday. Of course again when we got to
the Missionary part I had to cry. They dropped us off at our dinner appointment
and then came in to see them and pretty much got the family to invite them in.
It was weird. They kept complaining about people in the ward and telling us all
about why they hate so and so. They are going to another ward. Really it was
just uncomfortable, but glad that the family could be a fellow-shipper. The mom
bore her testimony of why we come to church and that it is not for the other
people or for the friends or groups of friends we make. It is for our own
benefit and us renewing our baptismal covenant and improving our relationship
with our heavenly father.
Wednesday we went on visits and saw some
members with a sister in the Relief Society Presidency. It went really well. We
had lots of fun.
Thursday, I think was my favorite day.
We had lunch with a Sister. I have been praying a lot for a nice smooth
transition from Garner to my new area and i know this week and this day in
particular was an answer to that prayer. We she made me a special lunch. It was
so good it was jumbolia. (Not sure how to spell it). Kind of like Gumbo. Then
she gave me a crocheted hat and scarf. I have been praying for some way to get
essential oils too.( dumb thing to pray for haha) I want to try them so bad.
She bought some and thought of me. She was questionable about it at first, but
bought them anyway. I was so excited!!!! It was the best! She told me she was
thinking that i wouldn't wanted it, but she got just in case. We talked about
it and i knew it was the spirit. He listened to me and she listened to the
spirit. She told me it was an answer to her prayer as well as too know if he
was still there for her. It was amazing. God is unbelievable. He answered both
of us in one situation. If i have learned anything here in Garner it would have
to be that God loves all of us and that his time is the time. We can be right
on with him if we trust him. I don't know why he answered my selfish plea but
he did. He has helped me with the idea of me leaving. I knew it was going to be
hard but not this hard.
Yesterday was another great day. I was
able to share my testimony in Sacrament meeting. I got to listen to primary
kids sing my favorite Father's Day song (I'm so glad when Daddy comes
home....). We taught the Relief Society lesson on the Book of Mormon. We had
great testimonies shared. I had lots of people asking for a picture and others
wanting me to promise to come back. It was so amazing and i knew that i had
been successful. People told me they have seen me grow and change. They told me
how loving I am and how much they will miss that. They said they will miss me
jumping out of my seat when i get scared and just being jumpy. As much as I
don't want to leave I know that I can return and be welcomed! I know God knew
that needed this and I know he is watching out for me!!! If i put in the effort
he will make up the rest that is needed. Tomorrow i will be saying goodbye to
Garner for awhile, but wherever I go I know God is right behind me and never
will ever leave my side! I love North Carolina and know that my time is done
here but where i go i will have more experiences that i will be able to take
with me! I love it here!!!
Have a great week! Everyone who is taking part in Trek this
week hope that it is amazing! I wanted to go but I have decided that i am on my
own Trek here! Love you all!
