Hello Family and friends!
Well this week has been a doosey!
First of all Grandpa Traylor I am praying for you! And I am putting my foot down, you need to move somewhere closer to us so we can keep our eye on you! WE cant loose you! If you are still in the big house alone when I get back, you better believe I am moving in! We still have to write our book, "The World According to Lester!"... I love you!! MOM, make him well!
also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Grandpa Forsey! I love you and wish I could be there to celebrate!
and Spence!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I hope you have a wonderful day! Love ya bro!
Well back to the work.... Monday we had district Pday and it was really fun. We went to the chapel and played games, like dodge ball, racquetball (sort of), mafia, and psychiatrist. It was fun! Then we had a lesson with the Millans. We taught them the Plan of Salvation and the dad LOVED it! He wanted to learn and read more about it.
Monday night we found out that Sis. Hoffmeier is training again, so we are being separated :(
Tuesday we had District Meeting and I gave a training on Baptism and Confirmation. It went good! It made me realize that I am here to Baptize! to bring people to the gospel and offer them Exaltation! After DM we came home and I wasn't feeling too good so I laid down and rested. After I felt a little better we met with some less active members and also, Diana. We taught her and her family the plan of Salvation as well. And she always feeds us so we ate and then I felt REALLY sick, so we came back home.
Later that night we had interviews with President Berry so I sucked it up and went. I just love President Berry! He truly is a man of God and he and sister Berry are called of God. I just love them both so much and am so grateful for them!
Wednesday we met with a returning member, she has been going through a lot with her Ex husband so we went over to offer her some comfort and peace.
Later in the day sister Berry called, she noticed that I had come out of the Interview with president very emotional. What can I say I'm a cryer! haha You mention my family sometimes and I'll cry at a drop of a hat! haha But she was just concerned and wanted to let me know that she was thinking of me and loved me. How sweet is that?? I don't think I can say it enough... I just Love the President and Sister Berry!
We had a dinner with a member that night. Sister Gilger, she is awesome! so sweet and fun! We also had our scripture study class, Sister Mize taught and it was all on Family History work. It was very enlightening and I am excited to do some history work when I get home!
I got a letter that day from Kimmi and Annie Woodward. It made my day! I love mail! Please tell Annie I got her letter and I LOVED IT! :)
Thursday we had temple service and I don't know what I had but I was super sick again after that. I slept after that to see if I could feel better. We had a dinner appointment so we went to that and I was still really not feeling well. I must of had a stomach bug.
But Friday morning I woke up just fine. Sister Hoffmeier needed to go to the Trainers meeting and so I went to Winter Garden to be with some sisters there. It was a fun afternoon, we visited a sister in their ward who is 96 yrs. old and doesn't look a day over 80! She was very nice. Then sister Hoffmeier returned We did weekly planning and the Bevans wanted to take us out to dinner. I just love the Bevans! they are the best!
After Dinner we went on a Temple Tour with the Millan family! It was so awesome! I think they really enjoyed it and there was such a strong spirit of family and love.check out the picture!
Saturday we rode our bikes and went bike contacting. We had a lesson with an investigator named Gina, she is really sweet and I think she will really soak up the gospel! We just visited some members and went knocking. While knocking a frog fell on my head, yup a frog, luckily it just like bounced off but it was gross. And then we knocked on a door that had a sign that said "no soliciting" and the guy opened the door and we told him we were missionaries and he said " so you're selling Jesus Christ?" and I said "We're not selling at all, just wondering if you would like to learn more" He said no and shut the door. We were walking away and sister Hoffmeier leans over to me and says, " selling Jesus Christ, Yea I got his finger in my bag, how much do you wanna give me for it?" bahahahaha I just laughed it was hilarious! We get a little bugged when people tell us we're solicitors, so it was funny how she said it.
Sunday the Millans came to church and stayed all 3 hours yay! after Church we had a hotdog social with the ward, it was fun! And then a baptism meeting. No one was getting baptized so we just had a testimony meeting but it was good. We got home and there was a massive storm so we went over to the Bevans and watched the Testaments. I forgot the part in the last minute or so when Jesus comes up to Helam and calls him by name and then heals him. I almost lost it. I held it in though! The Lord knows each of us by name and loves us. I know that to be true.
Transfers are tomorrow I am leaving Conway :( and heading up to the Orlando Zone to the Lake Mary North Area. My new Companion is Sister Ransom she is still in her training, so I guess I am finishing her training and am now the senior companion. "You're in my world now grandma!" ....name the movie... haha ask Spencer.
I am excited to meet new people and to serve Sister Ransom in any way I can. This church is true. I love you all! Love, Sister Forsey
Mom- I did hear that the guy that plays Finn passed away . The funny thing is that I now see just how terrible that show really is haha. I was talking to a sister and she said I have a quote that says "You don't know just how bad you are until you try to be all good" so true! haha I am learning so much! I Love you! Please give grandpa a big hug for me and take care of him! I gots to have my 'finer than frogs hair grandpa'! I love you I love you I love you! You gotta keep your head up oohhhhhhhhhh! haha :D
