Hey SHAYLA -- WHATTTTTT! THAT IS SO COOL! I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO GO FOREIGN!!!! THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! I get to see you before you go. This is a happy day!!!!
Well my week wasn't as exciting. This week was busy but didn't feel to productive. The new area is great, a little slow but a good area, and I love my new companion! Sister Oler is so much fun. Sister Pendleton stayed in Whittier. The work is kind of slow at the moment but this will change here soon. This is the Lord's work, things are always happening.
So this week my thoughts have been geared toward charity. Something the Lord is teaching me that I need to go deeper.
We already started to do exchanges. It was fun. I went with a sister that I came out with. It was fun to catch up. On the exchange we were biking a lot. It was nice at the first part of the day. We meet this lady, she had just come out of her door and we started talking with her. She told us that she and her family needed God more in their life's. We told her that our message would help her and her family come closer to God and come closer as a family. We were able to set up a time to come back and were able to say a prayer with her and some of her kids. It was a good way to start the day. The sisters are going to be able to teach this family!
That is the biggest highlight of the week. It's crazy how the weeks go faster and faster. I love the people here and I am so blessed that I get to be here serving them! I love you all so much. Talk to you next week!
Till we write again,
