Week 69

Happy New Year!!!!
 We went bowling last pday!
Can you believe that it is already 2015! Holy cow how did that happen?? I am so excited for this new year. Sister Bray and I had a pretty hoppin' new years eve.....we had to be in our appartment by 6pm. I think we cleaned a little and I caught up on some journal writing and then we went to bed at like 10pm. We woke up at midnight to the sound of fireworks right outside our window. So LOUD!!!! but I just fell right back asleep.

This week was a lot of zone meetings. Bless Sister Bray's is probably not that fun being a sister training leaders companion. haha. We had two zone trainings this week. First we had one in Dortmund with the Dortmund zone! It is always weird to be back in that church building. But we had a really good meeting about setting new goals for the new year. Then the next day we had zone training in Düsseldorf. It was pretty much the same kind of topics. Both were really good!

In the midst of all that, we had a split with the Essen sisters! They are so awesome and it was fun to be able to get to know Sister Bates and Sister Sherwood a little better!

Sister Bray and I also were able to meet with some awesome people this week. We went by to visit an old lady in our ward. She lives in an assisted living home. It took us forever to find it but we finally did and it was so worth it. She was so surprised we came to visit he and she was so happy. It just felt good to be there with her. And she just bore her simple testimony to me and it just reminded me why I am here.

I am so grateful for this new year. I was reading in the New Testament about when Christ called his disciples and He told them to come follow Him and He would make them fishers of men. What impressed me, is that they left immediately. They didn't hesitate or ask questions. I really want to so that this year. I want to drop all my nets and choose immediately to be a disciple of Christ.
Just some MTC homies.....
I love you all so much! I hope you are well!!! Have a great week!
