So this week has been one of the best weeks of my whole mission. No joke. So many miracles and wonderful things are happening in these two branches!
First off, I am getting transferred tomorrow. It's so bittersweet leaving here, but I know there is more for me to do, and other people to share the gospel with!
We were able to go to the Temple as a district on Wednesday and WOW. The Temple truly is the House of the Lord. What a blessing to have the Houston Temple in my mission and so close. :)
So Friday was the Hearne Branch's Christmas party and the Caldwell Branch's was on Saturday. We had lots of non-members there! It was so much fun to see everyone and this time of year truly is the best because everyone is in the Christmas spirit!
On Sunday, President Mortensen (our Mission President) came to Hearne Branch's sacrament meeting to speak and we had about 25 people! Seriously--it was awesome! And on top of that, our investigator Susan (who was first interested in just Family History but now is getting the lessons) came to church for the first time and committed to be baptized on Jan 16!!!!!!! She already has a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and has been praying for God to send her more knowledge. She has been through so much and she's the sweetest lady ever. We are so excited for her!
After church, it was Potluck Sunday and talk about yummy food ... anyways after that we were able to go to the Temple Tours with Susan, her granddaughter, and Brother Floyd Hafley! What an experience! Seriously! :)
It's so bittersweet to leave this area, but I'm just so excited to see what the future holds!
Everyone have a great week and holiday season! Thanks!
