I hope you all had a great week! We did! Now we are starting Week 6 of this transfer. Next transfer will be my last transfer and it will only be 5 weeks instead of 6 weeks. In case some people are lost on to why that is. Back on October in General Conference, where we are able to listen to modern day Prophets and Apostles, they made an announcement that the age requirement for missionaries would be lowered. Elders could go out at 18 instead of 19 and Sisters could go out at 19 instead of 21. What an amazing change! The work is hastening in the mission field. Because of this there are more missionaries coming into the field, more sisters than ever. So they had to make it so time in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah would be less. Instead of 3 weeks missionaries are there for 2 weeks so transfers in the field have to be caught down JUST ONE TIME, so that means everyone from starting at my group in the FLorida Orlando Mission will be home one week early.
SO! I will be coming home March 27th. But don't worry, I have all the time in the world. (: We still have lots of people to contact and help be healed from their sins through Jesus Christ. Its been a great experience so far and I am not slowing down. So keep us in your prayers!!
This weekend we took Jan to the temple (see attached picture). It was great! She felt the spirit and gets to go back in a few weeks to do baptisms for the dead! (For those of those who don't know that that is here in excellent time to check out mormon.org FAQ (http://mormon.org/faq/topic/baptism/question/baptism-for-the-dead).
This week we are preparing for Denie's baptism. WOW! She is great and is doing awesome. I love her a lot. It will be on Saturday at 7:30 if anyone wants to attend (;
ZTM was awesome this week! We learned about our purpose and how to be obedient to our purpose. That was great! We have so much to improve on but with the Lord we can accomplish it all.
oh and of course HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
