Happy sunny June day from humid NC! This has
been a great week! I finished reading through the book of Mormon, went on my
last exchanges, attended my last mission president fireside, tracted..... a
lot, and bore my testimony at our Zone Conference! But where to begin! I also
found out that we are going to the temple on the 9th!!!!!
So Tuesday..... My last Zone Conference! It was
hard to believe and was hard to walk up top the front to give my testimony
cause it truly made it real, my time is getting short! President James has
started some great new things in the mission! We know how our NCRM scripture mastery,
list full of Roll [play ideas to do for thirty minutes in Companion Study, new
mission standard of excellence, and who we are (cards we will get and recite on
a daily bases, taught the principles again and again on spiritually create (AKA
Role playing). It was a great conference and a lot of great instruction
focusing on truly raising the bar and pushing ourselves to better success and
obedience and hard work! We have so much potential in the NCRM!
After the Conference I went to Wilmington with
Sister Salakielu and we had so much fun! We went tracting and found some really
cute! mats! I will send a picture! She is a great missionary and is so easy to
talk with people! I can see where Sister Higbee gets it from. (She was Her
trainer!). We are going home 6 weeks from each other and we both gave our
testimonies. She goes home in August! Her normal companion is Sister Buhler and
they were MTC companions and are great Sister training leaders!
We saw Wendy again this week and while I was in
Wilmington Sister Higbee committed her to a baptismal date! She is exciting but
really wants us there! Lets hope so! Wendy is doing so good and is progressing
so quickly the ward is so loving towards her and Malachi and they are trying to
find ways to help Malachi during church to be able to get through the whole day
till he gets used to it! Wendy is opening up to us which is both good and
I love it to know that she trusts us but I feel bad that I can't really counsel
her! I am grateful for Bishop Fish! He is one inspired man!
Sunday we had a Mission President
Fireside and it was my last one! We went with Vikki and it was great! It was
great to hear everyone s story and hear Vikki's testimony for the first time
about what she loves most about the church! I asked President for another
blessing and it was amazing to hear all that he said and was surprised when one
thing I didn't know would stand out to me did! I will be blessed with the
ability to apply what I have learned and help out those who I tell my stories
and experiences too! I think that is a pretty great promise! I love the James'
and so excited to go to the temple with them on the 9th! He even gave us
permission to go early before our session and do baptisms with Vikki! What an
amazing Mission President! I am so lucky and lucky to be the Lords Servant in
the NCRM!!!!! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
