Transfer 9 week 1

What a glorious week! 
Last week was transfers and I got my 2 new beautiful companions! Sister Clark and Sister Risenmay! Sister Clarke is from Georgia and is the Sister training leader leader. Yes, you read that right "leader leader." She is one of the sister assistants. She is absolutely stellar! And Sister Risenmay (pronounced Rizzz-in-may) is our pre-trained trainee from Washington. Seriously she is the bomb.com

This week we have found so many miracles. But I'm going to talk about one in particular. We have been setting appointments left and right this entire week, and we went to an appointment in a very familiar complex that I have knocked many times before. When we got out of the car, there was a man sitting outside his door. We get talking, and he tells us that his grandma would be very interested. They invite us to come back and share our message after our appointment. Well we came back, sat down and immediately started talking about baptism with the grandmother. She hesitated for a moment, and then we hear her grandson come out of the hallway and he said "I want to be baptized." We as missionaries can help you with that sir! We taught them the Restoration, and he is on date to be baptized on October 18th. We have been seeing miracles like this left and right. People are being prepared in the Balcones Heights area, and we are the lucky ones who get to help them. I love being a missionary!

Last night we had the opportunity to go to the Slaughter house for the assistants meeting. They have it every Sunday evening, and since Sister Clark is one of the STLLs, we were invited to come this week! It is very similar to the staff meeting we have at Temple Square. But after we got the business out of the way, President Slaughter opened it up to questions. We can literally ask questions about a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. Holy manole, it was amazing, we were there until almost12pm last night asking questions about mission, leadership, after mission, etc. Everything we can imagine! President Slaughter literally has all the answers. And they are all completely doctrinal based, he always turns to the scriptures or words of modern day prophets. What an inspired and amazing man!

Have a great week, I love y'all so much!

p.s. My angel of a companion, Sister Yeung from Hong Kong, is the new assistant at Temple Square!
