Monday was pretty chill, pday activity was playing music, writing letters, etc. and we found the BEST HAT in the world- i'll send pics :) things you find in the primary room :P haha
we also had an FHE with President Bennett (one of the Mission Presidents Counselors) and it was fun! and we had baklava... so good! O.o
Miracle! We visited a member to talk about a family who lived close by and invited them to invite the family (well, members in the family) to take the lessons. They called back, like, two days later and said that they want to meet with us! we were so excited, we did a happy dance in the middle of personal study... :) there were two other similar situations that happened this week, we're hoping to meet with them this coming week and start teaching them! Tuesday we also had MLC, which was sad because sister hansen wasn't there, but it was good, we are improving so much as a mission, i know the lord is happy- but, of course, we must continue onward and upward! :)
so, we were walking around talking to people on exchanges and aroundsome sisters pull up and ask if we had a ride to the emergency meeting... that we knew NOTHING about! so we went down to the Salt Lake Stake Center, and the meeting was missionwide- we learned who our new mission president is! Its President and Sister Spendlove, from San Antonio TX. we're excited to have them- and they get here in three weeks! He's called for 2 years and 4 months, and has to kids still at home,16 and 13. as he was talking, we were sad because we know he'll leave soon, but the spirit testified to us that this is right, and that its gods plan. i was also FINALLY able to have my interview with president today, the last one i'll have with President Hansen, and we talked about my mission, family, it was just sweet to be able to have that final conversation one on one, and feel the love that he and the lord both have for me :)
and, finally...was Claudine's baptism and i got to go back for it! I was so happy and so blessed to be able to go- and man, was the spirit strong! :) Sister Pearson and i sang the Olive Tree, because she wanted a missionary song. She (and we) were really sad that her sisters didn't come to support her, but her mom was there, and you could just tell she was SOO happy! and i saw sister pearson and aguilar today, and they said in the confirmation, she was told that she would serve a mission! the fact that she was finally baptized is a miracle, and where she is NOW from where she and their family started, Gods hand was there every step of the way, i know it.
Hope all is well, i love this work, and if you keep getting involved you will too! :)
Go out and be the answer to someone's prayers! :)
SISTER JOHNSON :)
