Best week of my life. hands down.This week we got the amazing privilege to witness 2 of the most beautiful baptisms ever. Earlier in the week we went on exchanges with the sister training leaders. it was a party. we got to GO TO NORFOLK!!! i teared up going back to my new area because all the amazing memories and friends i left came flooding back to mind. oh man some times its rough being a missionary! you meet the most amazing people, become super close with them and then you leave. but its all worth it. Norfolk was super fun, i went with sister Wylie for the day and we had so much fun.
I am so blessed that i got to be raised in the church. I never have truly felt the "lost" feeling that i have heard so many people talk about. I have always had my family, my ward family, prayer, and the scriptures to turn to when things got tough. But i didn't take advantage of this. especially the scriptures. I have so much love for the words that are written on our scriptures, especially the book of Mormon. a year ago, if i could have known how powerful the book of Mormon is , i would have never justified not reading my scriptures every day. these words are literally saved for us. They have been prepared by prophets of ancient times for us to read, to study, to ponder, and to apply to our lives. Don't let yourself get into a habit of taking them for granted like i did!!! I know that the book of Mormon is true. I know that it really is another testament of Jesus Christ.every single day my testimony of its truth is strengthened. I want to read it all the time. This book has changed me, and it continues to change me every single day.
Let it change you.
I love y'all so much. thank you for your support and love. I am so grateful for you wonderful examples to me!
Oh! I almost forgot! transfer calls were yesterday....
Sister Hurley is leaving me to go to Moore Head City, apparently its another beach in North Carolina. 4ish hours south.
I am staying here! I am so excited, I know that my work isn't done here in Nags Head. I am going to be training a new sister!
