New transfer, new sister!
p.s. Scary thought! I got my 90 day call last week where they get all the information to book your flight home!.. This is going by WAY TO FAST! Everyone just pray for time to slow down ok? Thanks!
This first week of the transfer flew by! As we all guessed, Sister Tippetts and I are LOVING being companions. I really don't know who thought this would be a good idea ;) It's way too good.
This week was full of miracles, a few disappointments, tired legs, and a personal trainer elder. It's been interesting!
We started off this transfer not having too many investigators for January. We have a lot of people preparing for February, but we needed some miracles. Right off the bat, we started off with a lot of prayers asking for miracles and people that could be baptized this coming week. The Lord always provides! After searching and calling people and doing a lot of other crazy things, we found 3 people that are progressing to getting baptized this week! We couldn't even believe it! Then after that, things fell a part a little bit. We couldn't find our investigators, they didn't all come to church, we were exhausted, we just weren't really sure what to do. We're still going though! It all comes back to having a good attitude. If we're happy and have the attitude that we are going to help someone return to live back with our Heavenly Father, we're going to do it! We are so stoked for this week! We are going to see even more miracles.
On a funny note, let me tell you about a little story of one of my first lessons with Sis Tipsy. We were teaching an investigator and she mentioned how she might not be able to go to church on Sunday. In Sister Tippetts mind she wanted to say how it sucks that she can't go to church; but she didn't want to say sucks, so she was going to say how it stinks that she can't go to church. But it came out as, "It stinks that you suck." ..yes. Perfection. I started laughing SO hard. There was no way that I could have even tried to hold it in. I think I might have cried from laughing so hard. Well while I was laughing, there was a very awkward interaction going on with Sister Tippetts and the investigator. It all worked out.. well kinda. She didn't go to church haha.
Okay okay. The elders here are KILLING US! Our zone leaders want to have zone unity so their idea of developing that is having all of us work out together in the morning. That means Cross Fit! What? I think I die every morning. I guess 2 and a half months to tiny needs to start sometime right? It's actually really fun! The first day, we did a warm up, just jumping jacks and some other weird things, and an elder threw up.. I knew that I didn't ever have to be embarrassed after that. He took care of that for all of us. Haha.
I love you all!
