Heyy!I'm so happy to hear that baby Mollie is here! That's awesome! I did get the pictures too. I was thinking about how weird it is that she'll be so old when I get home. Things will be so different by then! I can't believe it's only been one week since last time I wrote home. Things have been so up and down this week. In some aspects it was a great week, in other aspects a really really hard one. A lot has transpired though. This whole transfer has just flown by. Transfers happen next Wednesday, so we'll get the 'dodge call' next Monday. Honestly, I hope there's a big change. I was thinking about it the other day and I just don't feel like a missionary here in Sheldon. We just don't teach very many lessons, and aren't asked to do much for the ward. It's kind of like I have a desire to serve as hard as I can and do everything I can but the opportunities for me to aren't there. We'll see though, I'll be happy with whatever happens.
We had a huge and great miracle on Thursday morning.We were at district meeting and we got a call from Jenny because she had called Maria to see how reading and praying about the Book of Mormon went. She had read and prayed and felt the spirit as well, but that night she went to sleep and had a dream! Her prayer was answered in a dream in which two guys came to her with a Book of Mormon and said this is the truth, this is the path you need to go. That was such a powerful and exciting moment. We had district meeting that morning and had a regular day.
Saturday, We went to see Maria breifly but we couldn't go in because there was no man there and we couldn't really talk because she doesn't speak English but it was a good visit. Right after that we saw two women fighting. In a fist fight, it was a bit awkward. I didn't know what to do. One girl got kicked in the face. It didn't last long. We went to conference right after that. To the Saturday morning session. What powerhouse talks. I loved it.
Sunday was a great day as well because we just woke up early and went to Harborne chapel and stayed all day. We watched Priesthood, Saturday evening, and Sunday morning sessions. Some of my favorites from that were Elder Hollands of course, Both of Elder Eyrings in priesthood (made me think a lot of people like Dad, PaPa, Mr.Zack and others) just people I really look up to and think of why I look up to them. Of course President Monson. I can't even list them off because I really enjoyed them all a lot. I feel like the theme of this conference was both, love, and building up your testimony (build upon the rock of our redeemer).
