Miracles Never Cease :)

Another great week here on the mission! Good times, funny moments, definitely making memories that will stay with me my whole life- missions are the BEST!! :D

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! :) 

Thursday we got to have our zone meeting, and it was so good! president came and spoke and spoke about the spirit world and where sister hansen is and how he's doing, and we were just able to talk to him, he said he'll be VERY upset if we don't stay in contact, of course :)

Friday we went on our first exchanges of the transfer, so i spent the day with sister Lwin, one of THE sweetest sisters in the whole world. She is from Mirimar (spelling?) which i believe is close to Thailand. we had fun, she came out when i was 3 months (so with sister latham) and she's definitely changed from when i first met her. shes a great missionary though :) 
so, we were walking around talking to people on exchanges and around 2:30 some 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... Saturday 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. 

Sunday was good, stake conference in one of the stakes (BO) and we went to lots of wards in the NSL stake as well. There is a boy named A* on date for the 21st, buuut... i still haven't taught him, because last time i was on exchanges :P haha problems of being an STL... :) 
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! :)
