It's Monday! Which means we got
another email from Nicole. Here's
what she had to say this week:
"Hello friends and family!
This week was long, but GREAT! I learned so much and saw God's hand in the lives of the people I love the most :)
Yesterday, we met with our new investigator Jazzlyn from the group home. D'yani (Dee yawn ee) also joined and they both really want to be baptized. They said they just know it's true! I love them so much already! It's amazing how quickly you love the people you serve with. The message that Jesus Christ loves us so much He restored His church brings people closer together than anything else and I'm very grateful for that! I hope and pray we'll be able to teach them a little while longer!
This week is the last week of the transfer and it's very bittersweet. They're seriously and desperately looking for housing for another set of missionaries in Clayton. This will be really good for Deer Park because it needs the 100% attention and focus. Nonetheless, Clayton is where all of our investigators and Less Actives that we're working with are. I pray that the missionaries who will help them to progress even more will be placed in Clayton, even if it's not me. I want these wonderful children of God to come closer to Him in every way. As I anxiously await the call of doom, I am very grateful for the people God has trusted my companions and I with in these areas.
The picture attached is from. We have a lot of fires up here and President Dymock asked us to prepare a 72 hour bag just in case. I've never had to do it before so I was pretty excited haha. Nonetheless, it's also scary. I'm not use to so many fires. Deer Park seems to be doing good, but the rest of my zone, from Addy, Wa and north, seem to be covered with them. My prayers go out to all the firefighters and people all throughout Washington. I'm very grateful for the work and efforts being put into getting these fires out.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I'm very grateful for all of you and hope school goes well (I think it's the first week of school?)!
I love my calling!!
