January 08, 2018 - The Week I Was an AP for a Day

This week was full of unexpected changes (Sis. A's favorite thing in the whole wide world!!!!😑) so let's take a recap to see how well she kept her cool. 

Unexpected Change #1: President Thomas S. Monson passed away. Okay, its not entirelt unexpected but when your district leader calls you at 6:30am to tell you, its unexpected. I am so grateful to have had the influence of President Monson. I have had the opprotunity to watch the documentary on his life (On The Lord's Errand: The Life of Thomas S. Monson) quite a few times on my mission and he had got to be the most dedicated servant of the Lord there is. He is an amazing example of having full faith in God and trusting His plan. I'm grateful for his life and his service. ❤

Unexpected Change #2: Zone conference was postponed due to hazardous road conditions. Normally not a big deal BUT I had purposely scheduled to take our car into the shop the day after zone conference, Thursday, so we could have a car for zone conference. Then our conference got moved to Friday. Joy. But it all worked out in the end because I have some stinkin awesome AP's. It was freezing and raining on Wednesday and they called us to see if we were biking, which we were, and told us they would be bringing us a car because it was too cold to be biking. Shoutout to the best AP's ever!!!! I have never felt cooler riding in a mini van. 

Unexpected Change #3: It was actually freezing here!! Like I'm talking, butt stinkin cold. It does look like it's going to warm up a little bit then plunge back down again. Who knew it got cold here? I'll probably say that 6000 more times.

Unexpected Change #4: Actually I can't think of anymore.... 🙃

But this week was really really good. Even though there were many things that went wrong. A lot of things went really really well! In zone conference we talked about our new mission focus. It is to minister one by one. I love it!!! I think my most favorite part of being a missionary is that I get the opportunity to be more like my Savior. He is my best friend and ultimate example. Which leads into my scripture for the week: 

3 Nephi 17:21 

"And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them."

Have a fabulous week!!! I love y'all!!! ❤
