How is everyone doing?? Last Tuesday, i flew out to the south! we stayed in a hotel in tallahassee that night and met president smith and his wife. but they are going home this week so we now have a NEW president smith and his wife! we get to meet them this saturday.
SO i am in Fairhope, Alabama. It is the farthest west they let sisters go (cause of safety reasons), it took about 4 hours to get here from Tallahassee! Fairhope is SO BEAUTIFUL! who knew alabama could be this pretty? the town literally looks like it came straight out of a nicholas sparks movie. and the sunsets are unreal! every night we get to go on the pier at sunset and tract, meeting and talking to people about the church.
So my new companion is Sister Jackson and i love her so much! we are very similar and i am so grateful to get her as my trainer. She has only been out 3 months so most people dont train that early, but i know she was meant to train me. we are having lots of fun together!
for those that dont know, i have been sick since the day i got to the MTC. and its a real bummer, and unfortunately, things havent been getting any better. so please pray for a recovery! i am going into the doc on wedesday for the fourth time so we will see what they say now!
So every morning we run/walk to the yacht club area where there is a beautiful pier with the sunrise, i feel so lucky to be here!
I have learned that this mission is one of the lowest baptizing missions...its all about reactivating inactives. Isiah 61:1-3 has helped me understand excatly what we're doing!
everyone just loves to talk! we have met so many people this week and had some great lessons.
my favorite was with our investigator, Jeanetta. She has had SUCH a hard life. as i have gotten to know her, i have seen how much her heart has opened and she has so much faith. it is inspiring!
EVERYONE is baptist here! im ready to share the gospel with them :)
my favorite part about the day is when we tract on the pier at night, i just love talking to people and hearing their stories and sharing with them a message about jesus christ!
life is good! and i am so thankful to be here! i love you all so much and hope you have a blessed week :)
