Well Hello Family!!!
So, I just have to start off with................ AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! THE LORD LOVES ME SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, S,O SO, SO, SO, MUCH! Saturday, at 9:45, we met at the church with the youth to go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead! We had a recent convert come with us!!!! We get to the temple and there were SO, SO, SO, SO, many of us. They thought we were going to be a small group so they squished us in with another ward, but turns out we got a lot of people, so we were there for a while. Well, I was the last sister to do baptisms. While I was waiting for my turn, through the glass of the temple I was seeing familiar faces. I wasn't sure if they were members from the Shadow Hills Ward or Clovis. So, I kept looking and then I saw Bishop HEATH (CLOVIS)....... nearly peed myself.
So I am about to get in the font and I say to one of the sisters in my ward, “SISTER FARR, WILL YOU PLEASE ASK THAT MAN IF SISTER CHRISTOFFERSON CAME?” My heart is pounding at this time...... So I go in the font, I do my baptisms, Sister Farr comes back and says he was gone, but I saw a group out front and I will go ask them!!! I said OKAY!!!!!!!!
So I go in the bathroom and wait for the shower.... Sister Farr comes back and says, "CONTROL YOURSELF" .......... Well, in the most reverent way I was jusming up and down in a wet jump suit nearly in tears... so I showered so quick, and dressed real quick, then thought we were going to get pictures. So I have to do something to my hair, so I threw it in a bun, composed myself, walked out the door, and standing across the hall way right in front of me was my BFC!!!!!!! (Best Friend Companion) We just went outside and I hugged the crap out of her!!! I've missed her so much lol!!!! We didn't get to talk too much, but a hug was good enough for me!!!!!!! Well, a lot of hugs!!!! ----
Spiritual application---- if that feeing I had is what we get to feel when a loved one passes away and we get reunite with them in heaven.... i'm going to doeverything in my power to always be worthy to enter the kingdom of God because I want to feel that feeling again!!!!!!
So, you might remember Sister Brunt and my goal of bringing 5 souls to Christ through baptism... Well, the Lord answers prayers. Yesterday was kind of a “make it of break it” kind of a deal. If investigators didn't come to church they wouldn't be able to be baptized in the next 2 weeks. Yesterday the Lord blessed us in allowing 5 of our investigators to come to church, 2 of which missionaries have been working with for 5 months and they would never come to church and we didn't know why..... and SHE LOVED IT!!!!!!!! SO, SO, SO, SO, SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!! SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PRAY FOR JULISSA, XAVIOR, JACOB, LISA AND JONATHAN!!!!!
God is a God of miracles and amazing things happen everyday!!!!
I love ya so much! Have a great week!!!!
