This week was so crazy! Sister Best and I have been working our tails off! On Tuesday we went to Woodward for exchanges. We had interviews with President, too, and that was good! President asked me what my goals are for the end of my mission. He was really helpful and gave me good advice. I can’t believe it’s coming so soon already!
Side note, I got sick on Saturday and “passed out” for like an hour. I had a fever and was super nauseous, but it got better after some sleep…thankfully!! It was Sister Best’s birthday on Saturday, too, which made it a fun day, minus me getting sick. Luckily, Sister Barlow, one of the office sisters, was on splits with us for the weekend, so she kept Sister Best company while I was out. Sister Barlow is awesome, and it was so fun to have her with us!!
We also met with Carla and set up her new member lessons. We are going with her to the temple to do baptisms on the 8th and are so excited! She is a rockstar and is working hard towards the temple next year.
Last week was OSU’s Homecoming week. Homecoming is HUGE here. On the Friday night before the game there is a “Walk Around” where each of the Sororities and Fraternitiesbuild a huge float looking thing in front of their house, and 90,000 people come to walk around and look at them. We got to OYM there and it was nuts!! So overwhelming and fun at the same time. One lady told us our faith wasn’t real…haha…thanks a lot! We did get some referrals though! We also went to the parade on Saturday and talked to people! Lots of contacting! It was great! Although OSU lost, it was still fun to be involved in all the Homecoming activities and talk to some great people!
LeRoy has also set a baptismal date for December 13th! We are so excited for him and really think he’s going to make it! He is doing everything to work towards it!
I have been thinking lately about how grateful I am for the Holy Ghost. The Spirit truly works miracles! I know that it teaches, comforts, reveals, and directs us. I have seen people completely change their nature with the help of Christ through the Spirit. It’s been cool to see LeRoy change over time as he has been reading the scriptures, praying and coming to church. I love this video on the Spirit! Watch it! https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/2012-01-001-feeling-the-holy-ghost?lang=eng This was the biggest question I had coming into my mission, and it’s been amazing learning, feeling and testing to know how I feel the Spirit! It’s so important in this life to know how the Spirit works, because that is how we know what is true!
I love y’all so much! Have a glorious week!
