Sister Millard is training!! Just after 3 months.... (because she is a ROCKSTAR) She's gonna do so good. I'm gonna miss her so much though. We have had little moments all weekend where we look at each other and just start crying. I seriously love her so much! It'll be hard to leave her.
As for me, I'll be going to a new area (they don't tell me where until tomorrow) and be training a new sister too. AH!!!! Not knowing where I'm going kinda makes me nervous. So does training. Ah. But it will be good.
Saying bye to the ward was rough, not as bad as last time though. I only cried a couple times... the Lewis's. MAN I will miss them SO stinking much. They've been like my mom and dad here. I seriously think the world of them. Their oldest just got her call to Portugal this week! I love them so much. I will really miss them.
Ummmm stories for this week?!
Uhhh... I was sick at the begginning. But I'm getttin better!!
I literally have no time to email, I'm so sorry (probs no personal emails today... SO sorry friends :))
I wish I could remember what happened. OH cool story. Weds we had a lesson with this lady who recently lost her 23 year old son. She is so sad :(. We said a prayer for her. Earlier that day in my personal prayer I had prayed to have my testimony of the plan of salvation strenghtened... Boy does He answer prayers! :) While we were saying this prayer with this lady I could literally feel angels in that living room. Her boy was there, there was no doubt in my mind. Such a neat experience.
Friday we went out contacting as usual. Talked to this guy for about five min, said he wasnt big into religion, too much hypocricy, just a short little contact. The next morning we had a voicemail on our phone from him. He had checked out mormon.org and said "Okay, I wanna know more about this mormon thing, can we meet up?". Yes sir, yes we can meet up. It was just SO stinking cool, cause he was the last person we thought would get back to us. YAY. We never know who's prepared... but God does. That's why we just gotta open our mouths and invite EVERYONE :)
Testimony time! :)
Man. I love being a missionary. I feel like the things I've learned in Metro are going to bless me for the rest of my life. I know that the Spirit is what makes this Work work. He leads us, helps us know what to say, and he teaches the people. I have LOVED spending everyday with this badge on, walking on the streets of downtown Tampa, and inviting everyone I see to experience the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I am so blessed to have this opportunity here. Downtown Tampa will always have a special place in my heart.I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU GUYS THIS PLACE! :)
This ward taught me so much too. Man. All these cute little families make me so excited to be a momma and a wife someday. They have taught me a ton. I love them. Wanna be like them someday. Such good, strong, faithful families. Hard to leave.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
