Hello beautiful people,
Ready, Set, GONE; the trio has been split up. Sister Suzarte, Sister Estamante and Sister Turnbull are no longer serving in Runcorn together.
Sister Suzarte will be finishing her mission in Blackburn and serving with a French Sister, Sister Trouillard.
Sister Estamante will be staying in Runcorn and serving with my MTC companion, Sister Thompson, and her trainer, Sister Mathias.
And I, I am returning to Chester to serve with my 13th companion, that is right, I have more companions that transfers. Sister Wilkinson from Pleasant Grove, Utah.
Nevertheless, it is bittersweet to return to Chester. The members of the Chester Ward have been very welcoming and they are very excited to have the Sister Missionaries back, and I am very thankful that I could be here at this time.
As I reflect on my four week experience in Runcorn, I am able to see the many tender mercies that I received. I really loved the area, the work, the members, the district and my companions. I can’t believe how hesitant I was in the beginning to move, but it turned out to be a very sacred part of my mission. It was definitely a time to be humbled and to realise that the Lord’s plan is always better than our own. Moreover, my companions, Sister Suzarte and Estamante. The three of us became really good friends, and it was a great opportunity to learn Christlike attributes from both of their examples. I learned many strategies that I can apply to any future areas, but also, I learned many eternal lessons that I am very grateful for.
Furthermore, I am planning to return to Runcorn to end my mission…
On Sunday evening, I was able to officially see the wonderful presentation by The Browns, A Witness in the Stars. It was very insightful of the many signs that are given to us from the Creation. Heavenly Father has truly thought of every single detail as a great architect and Jesus Christ is the perfect builder.
Alma 30:43 And now Korihor said unto Alma: If thou wilt show me a sign, that I may be convinced that there is a God, yea, show unto me that he hath power, and then will I be convinced of the truth of thy words.
44 But Alma said unto him: Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
Moses 6:63 And behold, all things have their likeness, and all things are created and made to bear record of me, both things which are temporal, and things which are spiritual; things which are in the heavens above, and things which are on the earth, and things which are in the earth, and things which are under the earth, both above and beneath: all things bear record of me.
If we truly remember Him, we will follow Him, we will grow in appreciation for God’s plan by looking up into the night sky. Read more at: witnessinthestars.blogspot.co.uk
But always try to ‘learn to see with your heart the things your eyes cannot’. The Holy Ghost always testifies of truth.
