Well I'll start off with what's happening this transfers. I am staying but Sister Robinson is leaving. She is going back to hermosa liahona (for the third time) and will be with my old companion Sister Diaz!!! And Sister Young is coming here with me. So it should be a fun transfer :)
I got to go back to my old area of Torrance, on exchanges with Sister Johnson, my old companion. It was a lot of fun to see how much she's changed since she first came to the mission 6 months ago.
So on Friday, we received a referral from head quarters and it didn't have a specific time to stop by, so we decided to go right after we got it. We were looking for a woman named Dina, but when we got there, she said there wasnt' anyone by that name who lives there. But she invited us in. So we told her who were and what our purpose was as missionaries. She then told us that for and while, and that morning too, she has been praying to find a new church. Asking for more direction in her life. She said she was happy in her church but she felt like there was more for her and her two sons. So we were then able to testify to her that this was an answer to her prayers and that the message we had was what she needed. We taught her the restoration and after we told her the Jospeh Smith story, we asked how she felt. She told us that she believed it. It was so amazing. We haven't been able to see her since, so please pray for her that we'll be able to see her soon.
It was such a humbling experience to be the answer to someone's prayer. I know that God uses the meek and simple to do his work, because they are the ones that will listen to Him.
I have never felt so much love from my Heavenly father than I have during my mission. He is real and I know that He lives. I have felt his love. I have felt his love for others. And I have felt his healing power time after time when I needed his Grace. This is His church. And it is worth every sacrifice to not only have a testimony of it, but to be converted to it. Meaning that we will always put him first, no matter the situation, no matter the cost. I know that by being converted, we will understand His will more, and will see the bigger picture. I would encourage all of you to study conversion. It is essential for our lasting happiness. I love the Lord and I love being here. Thank you for all your prayers and support! I LOVE YOU THE MOST!
