That's right! We got transfer news yesterday and I get to stay in Odenton for another transfer! Yay! Sister Larsen will be leaving to Westminster and Sister Suda will be my new companion! I'll give you more of an update on that next week. So, this week has been crazy, as usual! We got to visit with Suzie, our investigator. She still wants to come to church and be baptized, but she has some things to work through, so we'll be pushing back her baptism to another date. But she's still working hard and pushing through! We also got to go on exchanges with the Fort Meade Sisters! I got to spend the day with my last companion Sister Brown in Fort Meade!!! SO FUN! I love her :) She's just the best. Seriously. She's grown so much in the last 6 months. I can't believe it's been 6 months since we met! She's a stellar missionary and she just keeps getting better! I don't know how it's possible. While we were on exchanges we were really working hard to find a new investigator; we felt prompted to knock on this door and BAM! God provided :) The Fort Meade Sisters are now teaching Norman and his wife! #exchangemiracles
Then I got to go on exchanges with the Broadneck Sisters! I went to Broadneck with Sister Udall and she's just a fireball. She's great :) We had a blast there and there's just so much potential in that area!
I love it :) Being a missionary is the best! I had a cool experience this week while I was at Physical Therapy (for those of you who didn't know that before, surprise! It's all good, though. That's another story), one of the PT aids started talking with us about how he just "came to faith" two years ago and how it's changed his life. He said he wanted to be missionaries like us! So, when I go back on Wednesday, we're going to try to get his info to the elders where he lives! SEE! We can be missionaries EVERYWHERE! God is going to do whatever He can to help the people who are ready for it, even if that includes sending a missionary to physical therapy!
And Sunday, the best day of the week, was amazing yesterday! We even got to teach Young Women's! We'd been a little discouraged because the wedding and baptism didn't happen this week (but it will still be happening; we just don't know yet), but we went out to work anyway and we saw even more miracles! Just yesterday we picked up three new investigators! A husband and wife (the husband, by the way, LOVES "Stick It"... We're basically best friends with that family now), and a PASTOR! We're teaching a Methodist pastor, that's right! And she already said she believed the Book of Mormon is the word of God. So that's pretty amazing! Good things are happening in the Lord's vineyard. The field is white already to harvest. The Scriptures say it, so it has to be true! And we're seeing that already! The work is going really well! Missionary work really is the best.
I love you all! Keep looking for those miracles!
Shout out to my Mom who will be turning 50 this Wednesday!!! (Don't hate me for telling everyone your age...) She's really just 21 with experience ;) Also shout out to Elder Bird who'll be 20 this Saturday! And Shout out to my Aunt Rosanne who had a birthday last week! Happy Birthday!
