I'm Getting Shipped Off to VIRGINIA

Hey everyone!
Last Selfie in Elkins

I forgot to tell ya'll that this week is transfers. Sister Roberts and I were pretty sure that she was going to be leaving Elkins and I would stay because she has already been here for 6 months... We got the transfer call on Saturday and the Zone Leaders asked us both what we thought was going to happen. We both said we thought that Sister Roberts was leaving and they both paused for a minute, and one of them said, "You're so WRONG!" We were both in shock! My heart was racing when they said I was the one being transferred! We later found out that Sister Roberts is going to be training here in Elkins! She is going to be amazing! I am going to be in Appomattox, Virginia! I guess that is where the Civil War ended! I am super excited!! I have now served in Kentucky, West Virginia and now I will be in Virginia! I love serving God's children here in this wonderful part of the world! It is a riot!

This week it has been so warm! I think winter is over now, or whatever we had. The weather doesn't like to stay the same here. It is always changing to the extreme. It was like 66 one day, it was so nice!!! We tracted for about an hour.  We didn't find anybody but it was still a great time.

Our investigator Steve is on fire! He has been working on stopping his chewing habit, by doing the stop smoking workshop. He is almost done! I am so excited for him! He should be getting baptized this transfer. He has such a desire to change and to follow God.  Tt is amazing! I love the Gospel and how it truly changes hearts. It is amazing to see how people can do a 360 and become better through Jesus Christ. I want to be able to become my best self, and it is hard because I have many weaknesses. But I know that by striving every day to be the best I can be and always changing, I can become more like Christ. I love this Gospel, I love my Mission and I love my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Still Saying Good-bye with Jarrah
#Ponderize Mosiah 5:2 "And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change‍ in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually."

Lots of love,
