Sorry, this letter won't be super detailed because we're in a rush, haha!
This week was busy, stressful, and so wonderful all wrapped up into one! First off, Bowmanville is so wonderful! The members here have such a strong desire to share the gospel, and they're acting on that desire by inviting their friends and family members to come to activities with them, to read the Book of Mormon, and even to be taught by the missionaries! It is so powerful when members share the gospel! Bowmanville is a big ward! It has about 220 active members, so it's about five times the size of my last branch! It's going to be a bit of a change, haha!
My new companion is so wonderful! Sister Snickers is from Belgium, she speaks French, she just got a huge box of Belgian chocolate in the mail (blessings!!!), and we have the same trainer, haha! I'm going to learn so much from her!
We got to go to the temple ! It was the first time I had been in over six months, so it was so wonderful to go back and be able to feel the Spirit inside! Temples are such a huge blessing in our lives!
General conference was wonderful! I am so grateful that we have prophets and apostles on the earth today to teach us and to help us stay on the path! I loved Elder Oaks talk on...member missionary work, haha! Pray for opportunities to stand as a witness of Christ! I also loved the talk about being ambitious for Christ! We have such an amazing opportunity as members of the Church to reach out to others and help them come unto Christ!
I love you all so much! Have a wonderful week!
|Look who I found at transfers!|
|Hehe, both of my French companions! (Man, you'd think after spending so much time with French people, I'd be able to speak a teeny bit of the language by now!)|
|My new district!|
|Oh my goodness gracious! My companions got a big box full of Belgian chocolate in the mail! What a wonderful time to get transferred!|
