This is Debbie and Matt. They are the best investigators ever. I love them dearly. They are getting baptized on the 28th!
Thursday we taught seminary! That was so much fun. The class started at 5:50am and we taught the teenagers in our ward. I really enjoyed it, and I've decided that I really like teaching seminary. I felt like I was putting armor on those kids and preparing them for their day. I wouldn't mind teaching seminary as a career. But who knows. I'll think about it more next year.
Friday we did an exchange with some sisters. That was really good and I learned a lot from it. I also learned that it is a lot of work being a Sister Training Leader!
Saturday we went to a lot of meetings, because it was stake conference and we had a ward council leadership training that day. President came over to us after the first meeting and asked if we wanted to go to dinner with him. Unfortunately, we had already eaten food. So he said maybe he'd take us to dessert after the other meeting. Unfortunately, something came up he had to do, and it was 9pm, so we didn't get the chance to. He is so funny, though.
Sunday we went to a lot of meetings and taught 3 crazy lessons. We also helped some sisters cope with some issues they were having. They were struggling with learning how to work together and help each other when they each have such different emotions. That was another responsibility-lesson I learned. It is a lot of work to be an STL.
I know that my mission was the best thing I could have done right now in my life. I am learning so many good lessons. I can't even name them all. We were talking to a member the other day and he told us how he sees such a change in his kids only 3 weeks after they've been on their missions. I know the experiences I'm having here are preparing me to be a better mother, wife, leader, and teacher to everyone around me. I am excited for that!
The weather here has actually been really hot. But its been raining all day yesterday and today, which I LOVE! We actually had a member ask us over for Thanksgiving already, and I am so excited for it!
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE,
