Transfers are upon us again.......
Dear Family and friends,
Another transfer and I am.....STAYING! I get to continue training Sister Laker in Goose Creek which is awesome. By the time next transfer rolls around, I will have spent half my mission experience in the city of Goose Creek. Thats mind boggling. I am so richly blessed though because I get to spend so much time with these wonderful people. In other news, Sister Cole and Sister Johnson are getting transferred leaving Sister Reinhart (my trainee) to train for her ward. Thats going to be awesome for her and we cant wait to meet this new sister :)
Mega busy week!! So we have been teaching the Cousin family and they are progressing so beautifully. That family is so golden. With our teaching, the elders physical labor and member support, this family is going to get baptized. I love them! Then we felt inspired to go see a former. And we were able to start teaching Ellen again. She has a desire and wants to learn again. MIRACLE!
So last Monday we went to see Olivia, Her mom answered the door and the first thing out of her mouth, "Will is back so we can schedule Olivias baptism date." I about fell to the ground. This is the same woman who for the last 2 and half years has refused to let Olivia get baptized. So we scheduled a time on Tuesday to come back and talk to Will. When he heard that she could get baptized, he was practically doing front flips and cart wheels in his yard. So then.. We came back on Saturday to tell Olivia. We told her she was finally able to get baptized and she couldnt stop smiling. She is going to enter the waters of baptism on September 5th. I am so excited! BIGGEST MIRACLE!
This is my companion and I dressed up for primary yesterday. Kids are so funny! We were people during the reign of Christ. I played the role of the wife of Jarius. The kids insisted on telling me that I was Sister Jordan. "I am the wife of Jarius who saw my daughter rise from the dead because of the Savior." "Actually, Im pretty sure youre Sister Jordan who is our missionary." Well you cant lie to kids. Primary is awesome.
That was pretty much my week.Otherwise I ate it up the stairs pretty bad yesterday trying to get a way from a cockroach. You know the same old me.
Anyways, the gospel is so true. People have the desire to come unto the truth of Christ. To be set apart from the world to serve is absolutely wonderful. I know this work is the work of God. I love you all and God Be With You Until We Meet Again.
