This week was one of the best weeks of my whole mission! It was a testament to me of the tender mercies and miracles of the Lord when we stay faithful through struggles and trials. Last week my letter might have sounded a bit rough, but we tried stay positive, faithful, and obedient. As a result, the Lord has truly poured out His blessings upon us. The trials actually kept going a bit into the first part of this past week, but by the time Wednesday hit, the miracles were not ceasing!
Well, as I'm writing this, we just got transfer calls so now I can't really concentrate on what I'm writing. haha Sister Fanene will be transferring and I'll be staying in Bago to train a new missionary. I feel so blessed to have experienced two of the best transfers of my mission with Sister Fanene. I have learned so much from her of what it means to love wholeheartedly, serve selflessly, be exactly obedient, teach in the Spirit, be positive in all things, have faith, and work hard. She is truly a bright light to all who know her and will do wonders in her next area. I love her so much and will be eternally grateful Heavenly Father placed us together to be companions.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Thank you all for your love and prayers! I truly feel them and appreciate them. Oh, I got letters this week from the Allred's, the Clifford's, Mom, and Rissy. Thank you so much! And happy birthday to Momand Dad ! I love you both sooo much!! You'll never know just how much. :) Have a fantastic birthday!! xoxoxo
All my love,
