Spiritual Firehose


This week was SO good! 

On Tuesday we had a Mission Leadership Council (MLC) with Elder Rasband, Elder Gong, and Elder Bennett. It was amazing. We were all able to shake their hands and introduce ourselves. And then throughout the meeting I felt like I was drinking out of a spiritual fire hose. I learned so much and so many of my questions were answered. I feel so blessed to have a modern prophet and apostles on the earth today. These men are truly inspired. One of my favorite things that Elder Rasband told us was that The more you KNOW Him, the more you will LOVE Him and the more you will SERVE Him. How powerful is that? I love that all these things fall into place once we take the time to get to know our Savior. One might ask, how do we get to know our savior? Well, Elder Rasband gave us one way that we can know Him. He promised us that if we study the sub heading of Jesus Christ in the topical guide (all 57 of them) then we will know our savior. That was a promise from an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am really excited to start studying and getting to know my Savior better! 

After the Meeting we went with our district to get our Flu Shots for the year. We decided that we needed to make it a fun experience because none of really wanted to get them. So we all got emoji bandaids to make it a little bit more enjoyable. It was actually a ton of fun. So note to self: always go in groups to get shots haha. It was also Elder Eaton's 19th birthday so we celebrated with cupcakes! 

On Wednesday we went on exchanges and I went to Marlborough with Sister Pegram in the Portuguese program! Haha so that was interesting. We took a member with us and she only spoke Portuguese and I was so lost. It was so funny! But we had a good day! It was fun to spend time with Sister Pegram! She is from texas and played volleyball. In fact, she came up to Spokane for the PNQ one year- so we were at the same place! It's always fun making connections like that on the mission.

On Friday we drove a sister to the airport really early. As sad as it was to say goodbye to this sister, the sunrise over the Boston Skyline was amazing. We also had Zone Meeting and Sister Demuth and I gave a training on the KNOW, LOVE, SERVE Him thing that we learned and how we can better apply it to missionary work. 

On Saturday Sister Demuth and I drove out to Peterborough, NH. Haha it is out in the middle of nowhere. The ward out there was having a ward activity at this old town hall movie theatre. So we set up our Book of Mormon display as well as our Jesus Christ one. We got permission from our mission president to watch the faith based movie that they were playing. It was called, Miracles from Heaven. It was SO sad, but still inspiring. We were crying the whole time. 

This week was kind of crazy and this week will be equally crazy. We are heading down to CT for the open house this friday and will be there until Oct 22. It will definitely be a fun and new experience and we are really looking forward to it! Thank you all for your love and support! I love you all and I am so thankful for all you do! 

Love ya!
