The Cat's Outta the Bag -- Oct 17, 2016

All beans are spilled!
Transfers were announced this Monday so Sister S and I don't have to keep anymore confidentiality things. It has been so much fun to see the sisters get so excited about their companions and everything.

Sister S and I get to stay together for another transfer woot woot!!

There has been a lot of busy-ness going on over here which is good. It keeps us on our toes. The new sisters will be coming to the mission on Wednesday and we should be having two baptisms this Saturday.

One crazy cool thing! Remember the general and his wife from Lebanon that came for a tour of Temple Square during general conference? Maybe? Maybe I didn't mention it. But he is a very high up general for all of Lebanon that came and he is a less-active. His wife expressed a lot of interest in the gospel. As we taught her about the prophet and about God's love for His children she began to lighten. Her face turned brighter and she shared her experiences that she had during general conference as she listened to the prophets and apostles speak. She couldn't remember the words they spoke but remembers the sweetest feeling washing over her in waves. Well after the tour we said good-bye and asked her to meet with church representatives in Lebanon. We then had no way to contact her until this week.

We were in the Teaching Center taking church headquarter referrals when a call comes in and I take it. This man starts speaking and explains how he needs to order two Book of Mormon's in French and in Arabic. He tells me that he had just taken his friends to Temple Square that were visiting from Lebanon. As we talk I tell him that we were the sisters that took him and the general on the tour! And we keep talking about how they are progressing in the gospel. Long story short he gave us her and the general's emails and asked us to email them during our preparation day to just reach out as friends.

So cool!

The gospel really is reaching every nation and the work of salvation is hastening.

My mission just keeps getting greater and greater. I'm so grateful for my Savior and the example He set. I'm grateful for the fullness of the gospel and how it has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. I'm grateful for the plan that God has for His children and the guidance He gives us.
Lots of love being sent your way!
