2016 was definitely the fastest year of my life! But it was full of so many miracles! I was also pretty excited because I finished the Book of Mormon on New Years! Starting the Book of Mormon was a great way to start and new year and end an old one. I love that book!
This week was good. I’m on Guam now so I don’t even remember what happened this week. Mostly because in the last 48 hours I have slept 7 hours. But I need a fun p-day, so never mind sleep.
It seems like Sister Kaato and I are still just finding a lot. We spend most of our afternoons finding, but it is good we have met some pretty awesome people! We are teaching this Chuukese women and she is awesome, we were teaching her about repentance and she started crying. Chuukese people have such soft hearts! Took me off guard. And we also found a nice Yapese couple. They have been reading their Book of Mormon but are so scared to come to church. We’ll get them there.
Oh yeah, Elder Zonts (my District Leader) got emergency transferred to Guam this week!! He found out Tuesday afternoon that he was “needed on Guam” and left that night. Nobody new until our District Meeting on Thursday.
New Years Eve was good, normal schedule and then at night we packed for Guam, got ready to go, and had a DANCE PARTY! Don’t worry we were only listening to Beethoven but it was fun. Sister Smith and Sister Jones really have no limits. They just go for it. We also had chocolate and all four of us shared shared a grape fanta, we know how to party. It was a great New Years Eve!
The rest of New Years was spent in the airport. I was on a plane or in the airport from 1am until 5:30 am. The Sister Training Leaders on Guam were late to pick us up so we had to sit there for about 20 mins. Then I didn’t lay down to go to bed until 6am. We had church, Mission Leadership Council, and then stayed at the mission office until 11pm. Great way to start the new year! It was really fun. We talked a lot about agency during our training which was really good. Sometimes people justify sinning by saying that God gave us agency but they just need to remember that there are still consequences for all of our actions. Righteous actions bring happiness! Elder Taylor gave his departing testimony which was weird, we went to Yap at the same time but he will be going home in a couple of weeks.
Hopefully we can do something fun today so I can send some cool pics next week!
Love and miss you,
