Week 27: Keep the Sabbath Day Holy!

Sister Loerstscher and Elle
This week has been a week full of meeting members and still trying to figure out how to be a missionary. I would have thought I have figured it out by now, but that is not true! I am consistently starting at square one and figuring out how to do it. But I think this is how it is supposed to be. I mean when is it that we fully turn our self’s over to the Lord? It is when we have done all we think we can do and we need help? It is in that moment and time that you submit yourself over to the Father and all that He has to offer you. I find this super interesting! Why do we wait until that last moment? I think it has to be the natural man in us that keeps us from "advancing", so to say sooner. Now I believe the real winner is the person who turns to the Lord for the smallest things and doesn't have to wait until last minute because they know they can't do any of it without His help. These have just been some of my thoughts this last week. 

I am doing awesome! I can honestly say love the people of Washington and I LOVE President Bonham and Sister Bonham. It is crazy to think I met them in August at the Airport for the first time and have since created a relationship in which I will be able to talk to them about anything I want or need to!

We had Stake Conference this last Sunday and Elder Call of the Seventy came and spoke to us! What was really cool is that the Saturday night and Sunday morning sessions were all about missionary work. Well the Saturday night was more than the Sunday. It is awesome to see other people get as excited about missionary work as I do! He talked about the Sabbath day as well and how this has been a hot topic for I believe almost a year now? It is crazy to think it is so true about how much the Sabbath day really does affect the rest of the week. When we are able to start the week off spiritually filled the rest of the week goes a lot better.  Not that it is easier but we are able to face all our problems head on.

So I don't know if I told you but my companion Sister Stacie Barletta is from Baldwinsville, New York(Click Here). She is 27 and a convert to the church. She was baptized when she was13 years old and has been active in the church for about 2 1/2 years. She is an amazing missionary and I am so thankful I have the opportunity to learn from her! We are both Sister Training Leaders and so exchanges have been fun! 

I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!

Have a Happy Valentine’s day. Keep the Sabbath Holy. Also I think we will be emailing Tuesday because I believe it is Presidents Day on Monday so talk to you all then!
