I'm expecting a baby....
GIRL!!! Yes, you read that right! This transfer I will be training!! Her name is Sister Kerns.
I got the call last Wednesday. Sister Staley and I were so sad to be leaving one another. I love her so much and we beleive its because we got along so well. But the Lord is trusting me with one His servants. We had a trainers' meeting on Friday and listening to a talk by Elder Holland that basically says the way you train your new missionary is the way she will be for the rest of her life! No pressure, right?? I am really excited because I loved Sister Durr and I want to pass down her legacy..haha. The sad thing is, my unrealistic side is comong out, you know what I am talking about Mom. (: I want everything to be PERFECT! I have even tried to figure out how I can make her breakfast....haha. Sister Staley brought me back down to earth, Thank goodness. So today will be filled with goodbyes and packing. She gets into Orlando around 4pm and I get her tomorrow at about 10am. Defiantly keep us in your prayers!!
Another funny thing...this week is my 9 month mark, so Sister Staley made trhe comment, "Well of course you are expecting...you are at 9months!" hahaha.
This week was great! We still cant find a lot of our investigators...so weird. But the ones we have are doing well. Sister Pam Smith came out with us to teach Bob. She is a recent convert and her husband was just baptized a week ago and she is so excited about the Gospel. They are a great couple! I love Sister Smith.
Gene and Pug are doing well,. they are our Florida Grandparents we teach. Gene is straight out of a John Wayne movie. Pug came to church. She is so sweet. Pug is just a nickname. dont worry. They are from North Carolina.
We have had some crazy rain here! Last night lots of lightning. Pretty but scary!
Wel this transfer has been awesome and I am excited to start this new one with my Baby Girl!! haha. Def keep us in your prayers!! Ya'll are in mine!!
The Atonement is real! Repentance is a true principle. Obedience to the Lord's commandments helps us progress!! I have a testimony of all this! I love my mission and I love the Gospel!!
Keep the Faith!!
love, Sister Ploth.
