Hello beautiful people,
As I get further along in my mission, I become more and more British. Since it is coming up to summer, like my fellow Brits, I will be departing England and vacationing in Wales.
YES. I WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE BLESSED LAND OF CHESTER.
Which means I will be residing in Mold, Wales.
Therefore, I will be leaving Sister Elgueta and although I brought all the exotic sisters from South Africa, Ecuador, Malaysia and Norway, I will be replaced by an American. Tragic.
I am joking as Sister Larson is beautiful and I know that she is exactly what Crewe needs right now. However, I will be returning to Crewe twice in the next month as we have our Multi-Zone Conference at the Crewe chapel.
This is my longest area and my heart is in Crewe. I love this area and the members so much. In my interview with President, I said that I was comfortable and I am. I have experienced many challenges, learned many lessons and have created many wonderful memories. I know that the support of the ward and my love for them has been a great motivator in pressing forward.
Nevertheless, it has come to an end at the right time, and I even was able to experience a Crewe summer with the heat wave that occurred this week.
Moreover, this upcoming transfer is truly a blessing for me as it will be a fresh perspective and an opportunity to truly become the missionary that the Lord would have me become. I am driven to diligently be driven by faith, hope and charity, that I will strive to be exactly obedient, that I will become more receptive to the promptings of the spirit and I will be myself. The Chester Zone is full of amazing missionaries that won’t criticize, but enable constructive actions and I really value that in moving forward in this work.
Moroni 7:40 And again, my beloved brethren, I would speak unto you concerning hope. How is it that ye can attain unto faith, save ye shall have hope?
41 And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal, and this because of your faith in him according to the promise.
42 Wherefore, if a man have faith he must needs have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope.
43 And again, behold I say unto you that he cannot have faith and hope, save he shall be meek, and lowly of heart.
44 If so, his faith and hope is vain, for none is acceptable before God, save the meek and lowly in heart; and if a man be meek and lowly in heart, and confesses by the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ, he must needs have charity; for if he have not charity he is nothing; wherefore he must needs have charity.
45 And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Oh, and to all my young Women in Melbourne, I finally received my Young Woman Recognition, also known has, I completed Personal Progress.
I am officially a young woman in the eyes of the Church and I got my temple bling.
Also, apologies for the short email as I am trying to pack all my luggage. It has been a struggle. I have a suitcase that has lost a wheel, another has a broken zip, I have accumulated many Christmas and Birthday gifts, and so I need all the time in the world to pack.
