Dear Family and Friends,
This week has been a good week! We've had some good lessons with our investigators and have been really blessed. Transfers are this week and I'll be staying in Pelissippi and getting a new companion. I'm staying, but I'm loosing Sis Clark and Sis Nelson as my companions :( I've gotten attached to several of the people we teach in Hardin Valley and I will really miss them. I am excited to spend all my time and energy in Pellissippi though. We've been able to keep things afloat with the two areas and I feel that now we'll be able to get things hopping! We are already so blessed and I can feel that more exciting things are about to happen!
This week we were at John's house and while Amber was helping us chop vegetables for the salad Amber told us that she wants to get baptized by the end of September. Um, what??? We were all in shock! She said it was my fault because something I said in my talk last week touched her and she decided to pray and knows that she needs to get baptized. She went to the baptism the Elders had in the Hardin Valley ward the next day and she was really excited. I hope that she'll stick with this decision because I know that it will bless her life so much :)
I am so grateful to be a missionary and for all the wonderful people I have the privilege of meeting. I'm so grateful to serve here in Tennessee!
