Blur of Activity

[Received 24 March 2014]

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone got their pinches out last week for St. Patrick's Day! :)

So this past week has been a blur of activity. As everyone knows, we are now covering an additional stake out here in Eagle Mountain. Because of the additional size of the new stake, the mission deemed it appropriate to give Elder Abersold and I a car. So, on Wednesday, we got a beautiful Ford Fusion, and its name is Nitra. I know, it's awesome. :D With the new car to use, we've been really pushing on getting to know people in the farther parts of our area. It's been great to get to know some of the other ward mission leaders! 
We have all but the Yellow (Eagle Mountain Utah Stake)


We had a fantastic baptism on Saturday! The "baptizee" was someone we've been working with for about 3 months now, and it was an awesome thing when after her baptismal interview, she ran to her mom and said, "I did it! I passed!" She was so excited to finally have the interview, and then to pass! It was such a great thing to witness! :) 

Someone told me this week that I wasn't being specific on the miracles that I see. I had a thought that a lot of the time, some of the things that are miracles to me might just be seen as coincidences to others. Other miracles are just too special for me to share. I just wanted everyone to know that my mission truly has been one of miracles. It's been a changing experience, and one that I'll never forget throughout the rest of my life. I've learned so many things from people that I think a lot of times they didn't mean to teach me. I've learned things *about* people in general that have helped me really have a greater understanding of human nature, and how to better work with people. 

Once again, I love everyone! I hope you all have a FANTASTIC week!

Keep Smiling!

P. S. We also helped a family plant a tree this week:
