18: I’m only a trainee for one more week!

Well the transfer’s almost over! Time really is flying by SO fast! I find out at the end of this week if I’m getting sent out of Moreno Valley and if I’ll be freaking TRAINING already… there are 6 new Spanish-speaking sisters coming in this transfer, and there are currently 6 Spanish sister companionships. (So half the Spanish sisters will be training! Yikes!)

That means I’m only a trainee for one more week! I’m a little nervous, but I know it’ll be okay. I mean, 1 Ne 3:7- God’s not going to ask me to do something that I can’t do- as long as I have His help.
I’ve learned SO much these past 12 weeks in the field. And it’s gone by SO fast! I think I’m starting to understand what everyone means when they say that the mission is over before you know it. Haha.
Anyways it’s been quite a week. We had to decide to drop a lot of our investigators this week. A lot of them just aren’t ready or willing to move forward or keep commitments. It’s pretty sad. We’ve been meeting with a lot of them for a long time.
BUT good news: We do have some really good, solid people too! We’re teaching another just-barely-9-year-old in the ward who should get baptized this Sunday. Her parents were baptized not too long ago, then went inactive and just started coming back a little while back. Her dad is receiving the priesthood this Wednesday, so he can be the one to baptize her. It’s going to be so awesome for their whole family! We taught her the plan of salvation yesterday and then talked to the parents about how their goal needs to be to get their family sealed in the Temple. It was an awesome experience and the Spirit was really strong.
J___ also FINALLY received the Holy Ghost this week, too. He is such a good kid, and he’s been so excited for this! He even bought a shirt and tie especially for it. I’m super happy for him. (I left my camera in the car again… Sorry. For SURE I’ll send pictures next week.)
I love you all so much and look forward to hearing from you! I’ll write again next week… no idea where I’ll be writing from though! Haha!
