DC Week 14!

What a whirlwind of emotions this week! It was so good to hear all of your voices, talking to you made me feel like no time has passed! I sure hope all is well at home. Can't wait to wish you all a Merry Christmas next time!!

This week has been an eyeopener for me. For starters, it has been so easy working with Sister Nakatsuka.  She and I have been on the same page since day one, and it has been such a nice transition this transfer (both for the members, investigators, and us). Companionship unity is something you always strive for as missionaries, but we just don't have to try as hard! It's a great change of pace; to focus on other more important things.

On Monday...we had a number of various incidents and miracles transpire which I will not go into detail about at this time...but our experiences changed our entire outlook on our purpose as missionaries.  We talked about some of the people we met, and our feelings about what we learned that night...both contemplating the extreme gravity of our calling. Both recognizing just how blessed we are.  I have never felt so lucky to have the gospel in my life. If the time is right, I'll explain more in a later email. Particularly about a man named Victor Smith.

Well it's that time again. Sorry to make it quick. Oh I love you all so much. I hope Mother's Day was wonderful. Thank you to all who have sent me letters--still working on responses, don't you worry!

My closing thought for you this week comes from one of our recitations:

“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing, persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny many defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited very clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.” ~Joseph Smith Jr.

Think about it.

Pictures: Early Friday morning, we had the opportunity to go for a temple walk with all the sisters and Elder and Sister Eyring.  What a treat. It was so beautiful.
