SURPRISE FROM HEAVENLY FATHER!! I have been transferred to Carmichael back in the Deaf branch, 2 weeks before transfers!! The new Sign Language sister came from the MTC and sister sellers is training her in Stockton, so they kicked me out!! My heart broke a little. or a lot. but guess what else??? KATHY IS GETTING BAPTIZED!! SHE CONVERTED FROM WICCAN TO MORMONISM! December 1st is her baptism date and I am sooo excited for her!! She feels the gospel and even though we haven't been able to teach her everything, she FEELS like its true. I love the Holy Ghost.
Dianne, on the other hand...has been postponed in her baptism. It will happen soon, but we just dont know when. Her family came into town and freaked out that she was going to be baptized Mormon. She told them she liked us but they are purposely staying another week to make sure she DOESNT get baptized. So, we'll just wait til after they leave back to Louisiana and we'll baptize her!!
Sister Larson, Sister Oliphant and I are in a trio until Sister Larson flies home next week. boooo. We carved pumpkins today as a district. Mine was supposed to be the angel moroni....We had a tour at the temple last weekend and it was interesting. Kathy came up from Stockton so I was able to see her again. Its only been 4 days and I miss her already so much. We interpreted the tour for the Deafies and the spirit was felt. I miss the temple.
I finished the D&C and then I whipped through the Pearl of Great Price. The only book I havent read on my mission is the Old Testament. I might put that one off until after my mission, and take it as an institute class. The Deaf branch gets a new senior couple tomorrow to help us. YAY! Im actually really excited. Hopefully they can help our little branch. Last Sunday, we only had 10 Deafies...its threatening to be shut down. We're trying to be positive, but its hard to have so little support in a group that needs a TON of help.
I love all of you!!
