This week was a week!
On Wednesday Sister Trommlitz and I went to MLC together. OH i forgot to explain last week….right now the Sister Training Leaders are split up, Sister Trommlitz (who was my MTC companion!) is the new one and so our companions worked together for the day while we went to Farragut. There are some new changes in the mission……mostly with a few guidelines here and there. The biggest one is music, our new guideline is that the music we listen to needs to be appropriate for Sacrament Meeting. I thought that would be hard for me…there’s a lot of upbeat Christian music and Nashville Tribute that everyone listens to… but already I feel like it has helped me be calmer and less distracted.
Friday, Sister Draney and I met with Bishop Larson to talk about some of our missionary efforts. Let me tell ya………there are so many people to go see!!!! So many members and families and part-member families……I don’t know why I ever feel like we don’t have anywhere to go because there are so many people to see. We have set some good goals and the mission as a whole is getting better training and direction.
We have found some great people and families to teach this week!! We are seeing 2 different families tonight that seem like they will want to be taught!
Ok just a few things!
Scripture of the week: Alma 58:10-11 "We did pour out our souls in prayer to God…and the Lord our God did visit us with assurances…he did speak peace to our souls, and did grant unto us great faith, and did cause us that we should hope for our deliverance in him."
Quote of the week: "The cultivation of Christlike qualities is a demanding and relentless task–it is not for the seasonal worker or for those who will not stretch themselves, again and again." – Spencer W. Kimball

love you all!! Keep pushing through your trials. Learn to rely on the Spirit and reach out to others when you are feeling down or bored or tired as well as when you feel happy and motivated and grateful. Don’t be disabled by discouragement or fear.
Have a great week!!!
