Here's Nicole's email from January 25th!
This past week was pretty crazy. With pday, a meeting all day , and Weekly Planning , we didn't have a whole lot of time to proselyte. But, nonetheless, I saw God's hand in all that we did and I feel very grateful for my calling. God is good.
So,, we had a missionary broadcast in the morning where we got to hear from members of the 12 apostles, which was so great! Our church leaders are truly called of God and they point us to Jesus Christ. I know the organization of the Church is to help us become better and to help us become more like our Savior. Then, afternoon to the end of the night, we had a Zone Conference where all the missionaries in the stake meet with President Dymock. It was really good and I got things confirmed to me that needed confirmation :) The saddest part, though, was talking to President Dymock afterwards. Our Sacrament meeting in Nine Mile takes place the same time as a meeting in River Ridge that we're suppose to attend does. We approached President Dymock to ask for some more suggestions on how to do it and he said that it's too hard to have these wards combined and to expect a change come next transfer (transfer calls are ...what?!). My heart broke!!! I love these 2 areas and all the people. I would love to spend more time in River Ridge and I most definitely don't want to leave Nine Mile. Nonetheless, change is good and will help both the areas progress even more.
