Sorry I've been slacking on emails. Monday's are crazy!
This weekend we had Stake Conference and two special guests were
there: President Whitney and Elder Larry Lawrence from the Quorum of
the Seventy! On Saturday when President Whitney got up to speak, he
asked for all the full-time missionaries in the stake/zone would stand
up. We felt really awkward but stood up. Then he asked us all to come
up to the stand 😳 We all went up and he introduced all of the
companionships and told the crowd a few facts about us. We were all
embarrassed and laughing then President said, "These are all wonderful
missionaries and great teachers. Please have them in your home. They
will do a wonderful job teaching your friends and family." Awww!!!
President! I just love President Whitney! There couldn't be a better
mission president for me! Then when we sat down Elder Lawrence said,
"Thank you President for your work. And thank you for your
missionaries." If you know me, you know I hate being put on the spot.
But that was really great that he took the time to do that. He let the
people of the Lewisville Stake how great we are and how much He loves
us. I've never doubted the fact that President Whitney loves us
missionaries. He's amazing.
Okay now I'll stop bragging about my mission president 😂 We met with
Alyssa and we were hoping to set a baptismal date with her, but she
said she wants some more time to be ready. That's totally fine! We
want her to feel ready for baptism so we'll continue to work with her
until she feels like she is ready to take this next step in her life.
Exciting news! Elder Lawrence is actually going to be speaking to our
mission! It's really rare to hear from two general authorities back to
back like this on your mission! I'm super excited!
Other than that there's not much to update on. It's great to be a
missionary and find those who are ready to receive the restored
gospel! Have a great week! I love you all! Keep praying and remember
the important things in life!
Until next week! Love you ❤️
