Maya and Tanya

Well this week was good!

The main thing that happened this week was that we picked up a new investigator! We are so excited about her, her name is Maya and apparently she has been "taught" by several sets of missionaries before. And I say "taught" because she never actually got the lessons? Weird, I know. BUT we were able to teach her the Restoration for the first time, which was amazing. We asked her how she felt, and she said good! We asked how she knew she felt good, and she said because she had a "goose rash" (keep in mind she's from India haha) We told her her goosebumps were a way that she could know she was feeling the spirit! We were then able to teach her to pray, and hear her pray for the first time! 1st prayers are always the sweetest. They are so sincere and honest and heartfelt. 

Other than that we tried to do a lot of finding, OH BUT THE BEST THING HAPPENED IN MY LAST AREA BECASUE TANYA WAS BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for her and Andriy even though I'm sad I wasn't able to be there I know that it was the best decision she could have made! If you want to find joy, Joy comes through Christ, I know this, and I want those I teach and those I talk to to know this.

Love you all! 

1. Sister Thompson & I

2. Weekly Planning...pretty much how that goes

longest. week. ever.

I have no idea what I'm doing.
We have no idea what we're doing.
The zone has no idea what we're doing.
President doesn't know what we're doing.
The AP's don't know what we're doing.

That is a poem I just wrote about how this week went. We are so lost hahahah it has been the craziest week ever! We pretty much have just prayed a lot and hoped that someone would tell us SOMETHING about Belmont. BUT the area is AWESOME. The members are so nice, and we LOVE it. 

This week was mostly just stopping by people that are on the ward directory, and asking them who we should visit!

Anyways, I also forgot my card reader this week, so no pictures haha sorry, it's been crazy.

Okay yeah that's it woohoo!

snow & Belmont

Okay so here's the thing. It snowed pretty much all week this week. Literally it was kinda the worst. We had to stay inside most of the week and we almost went crazy BUT it was still okay. The snow is super pretty but also super cold so I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think I still prefer sand. 

BUT here's the real news. On Friday, I found out I am being transferred to BELMONT, MA. (think boston temple) But I'm not just getting casually transferred there, Me & my new companion Sister Thompson are SHOTGUNNING (aka white-washing, kicking the elders out, etc.) Belmont. It's going to be crazy.

wow 20 years old

Yeah that's right I turned 20 this week! Crazy crazy crazy. I don't have a ton of time, but I will tell a few things that were awesome.

Okay, mainly one thing. Andriy's wife (the one who kept him from being baptized for years, and the one who was very against the church after he was baptized) SET A DATE TO BE BAPTIZED ON FEBRUARY 25th!!!!!!! We are SO excited! She suddenly just decided she believes it all and she want's to raise her family in the church, and wow  it was the best day ever when she told us. It was so cute, afterwords Andriy was talking to us, and he said "This is the best news...probably..ever!" And so yeah we are so excited for them to get sealed in a year or so! (:

BUT anyways it was a great week & I have a lot of pictures. 

1. Terrible picture of me, but the seminary class threw me a birthday party! woohoo!
2. Picture of Sister Behrmann & I (and elder schrader) at Heublien tower last week!
3. What the elders got me for my birthday? His name is Warren. But woo for being 20!
