Another blazingly fast week, and more celestial, low 80's, light breeze, zero humidity weather. We literally walk outside every morning and just stand there and breathe in the wonderfulness. Heaven knows it will only last for a few more days, but I'll take what I can get.
Honestly, I can't remember a lot of what happened this week, because I feel like we were just running from one thing to the next and didn't have a chance to hardly breathe. We had a zone meeting that was pretty good, did a lot more flood clean up, and taught people like crazy. The thing is, none of this feels that crazy anymore. I'm so used to just being busy and being on a tight schedule. Free time? What is free time? It sounds painful. :)
So we went to her house and had a great Book of Mormon lesson, and we even got through most of the Plan of Salvation as well. She loved everything so much. When we gave her the Book of Mormon, it was like we had just given her the Christmas present she had always wanted. You could just see the light in her eyes. We asked her to be baptized, and she said that she would love to. We're going to set a date with her this week. Here's where it gets real crazy! When we were talking about the Book of Mormon, I felt prompted to share a scripture in 1st Nephi and how it helped me when I was on the plane here to Louisiana. I hardly ever share that story, just because it was small and random. But I just felt like I should do it. Rewind to that plane ride, I was sitting next to Sister Castro (my current companion) as I was reading that scripture! And it was weird because when we met, I totally knew we were going to be companions someday. Don't know how. I just felt like we would be companions. Also, both of us got this strong feeling during our lesson that we already knew Reina. We're already so close to her, and she feels like family, even though we literally just met her. I know that there are no coincidences, and that Sister Castro, Reina, and I were supposed to meet at this time. I. LOVE. MISSIONS.
I hope you all have an amazing week! Enjoy the pretty leaves and the rise of the Cougars! :) Les quiero mucho!
