What's up my weekly subscribers 😊 first off, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes!!!!! I'm so grateful for each & everyone of you who took time to write me & send your love. It was such a great birthday week for sure full of tender mercies & little miracles. It was a busy week. Last week Monday, we had zone Pday before transfers. It was fun but sad at the same time cuz so many changes were happening to our zone. Change is good though!!!

Thursday we went & helped set up for this activity called Granny's Attic. It's where a whole bunch of people from the stake come together & donate clothes & all kinds of stuff that they no longer need. Then people can come & take them all for free. Like a mini garage sale but for free. It was fun! Then we did weekly planning. Then we went & did service for Paulette. It was fun too!! We got to talk about church & we also gave her a copy of the Book of Mormon & invited her to read it. Then we set up an appointment to come back the next day & teach her more. It was awesome!! After dinner, we went & taught the activity day girls about missionary work & what we do as missionaries. We also got to teach them a game we learned on the mish which was chair soccer. We thought we would go easy on them but these little girls don't mess around. It was so much fun!!!! They're crazy & I love it. Friday we had our first Zone Council for this transfer. Lots of changes happened to our zone. Change is good! After zone council, we went to go visit a possible potential but she had to reschedule. We ended up having dinner with Paulette & Becky. They made seafood!!!!! Crab legs, shrimp & corn 😍 I was a happy camper for sure. It was such an awesome visit with them. We talked more about the Book of Mormon & Paulette even said, "y'all just might convert me!" We replied with, "hey we'll take you up on that offer." Please pray for her that she'll have a desire to learn more about the gospel.
Saturday we helped out at Granny's Attic. That's was fun. We even got to meet some people who aren't members that came & we got to talk to them about what we do as missionaries & stuff. After lunch, we went & tried more former potentials & less actives. Then we went & helped Christy Blackburn make get well cards for her friend's baby. Sister Cotton came on exchanges with us & they seemed to have hit it off. It was a great visit! After dinner, we met with the Twendele family & the Fort Worth elders who over see the French & Swahili speaking people, came along with us. We taught them the plan of salvation & it was so awesome!!! They kept saying, "We know the book is true. We know this is true." We were gonna set a baptism date with them but totally ran out of time. Please pray for them that they will be able to commit to a date to follow our Savior, Jesus Christ & be baptized & that they will be able to make it to church. Sunday was another good Sunday. We had meeting after meeting which was good too. Then we had dinner with the Merriefields 💞 after that, we went to our first mission president fireside with President & Sister Whitney. It was definitely the highlight of the week. Not only was I able to feel the Spirit so strong but I was also able to recognize the fruits of my labors. I got to see people who are so dear to my heart. Got to see my sweet Ashlee & Ally (my converts & sisters). Got to also see sweet Sister Sanborn whom I missed so much. It was so wonderful to see familiar faces & feel the love that our Heavenly Father has for each of his children.
