This week has been a really good one! I said goodbye to Elder Taggart after 4 1/2 months! He went down to serve in Burkburnett Texas with Elder Slack! My new companion is Elder Haws who came from Lawton. He is an awesome guy! He is from Farmington Utah and has been out for 18 months! We get along great and are having fun!
This week was a pretty busy one for us and we have a busy one lined up for next week too! We got to do a new District Leader Training on Thursday afternoon, then we got to watch a worldwide missionary broadcast put on by the missionary executive council. That was really neat. It was 2 hours of instruction from the apostles and other Leaders from the Church. I learned so much! They talked about Bearing testimony frequently, Teaching with the spirit, and study/ preparation and leaving commitments. It was awesome!
Also this week we were informed that on February 20th, our whole mission along with the Bentonville Arkansas mission will be meeting in Tulsa Oklahoma for a dual mission conference where an Apostle will be presiding. We are so excited to go to that conference! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be gathered together with approx. 400 missionaries and an apostle! Also to put the cherry on top, Elder Gonzales (who came out with me) and I have been asked to perform a musical number there at that conference. I am super nervous and excited at the same time! This is going to be awesome!
Other than that, we have had a great week. Things are looking up and we are so blessed! Jay is on Date for Feb. 20th (which we're going to have to change haha) and so is Katherine! We are so excited for them!
Thank you so much for all the love and the support that y’all have shown and provided for me! Love y’all and hope that you have a great week!
