Helloo!So much has happened this past week!
First off, President Gillette received a phone call from the Mission President of the Salt Lake City East mission asking for a sister from Temple Square to serve in his mission for 4 weeks. President Gillette prayed about it and chose Sister Carvalho! We found out Wednesday at 4 pm and she left by Thursday morning at 8 am. We were both so shocked and after we found out we hugged each other and shed a few tears. She is my "mom" in the mission and she was still in the middle of training me, but all things happen for a reason. I am now in a trio companionship with Sister Walsh, who is almost done with her mission, and Sister Jones who is in her first transfer. They are both super nice! And my P-Day is now officially on Mondays for the next 4 weeks, so I'm sorry for not emailing on Friday! I moved apartment buildings and zones, but I'm still in a zone that has a lot of Square time which I'm happy about :)

So, this week has had A LOT happen! Said goodbye to Sister Carvalho, switched to two new companions, moved apartments, got sick, and wow....such a crazy week! But there is a quote many have heard that says "Come what may and love it" and I can honestly say that God has been watching over me this week. I miss Sis Carvalho so much since I didn't really have time to process the fact the she was leaving, but I think I am going to learn a lot from this new companionship. I'm so excited for the next 4 weeks!

Also, we gave our first tour together to a couple from Texas yesterday (they live right outside of Dallas!) and it was such an amazing tour! The Spirit was strong and we had great teaching balance. We have been doing so much missionary work these past few days with teaching on tours or chats, as well as our current investigators through the phone, and I love it!I love being a missionary and working hard and growing so much in the Gospel! I also know that through obedience we are greatly blessed. The only way to strengthen our individual testimonies is to feed it with the word of God. We need to constantly be following the commandments, reading the scriptures, going to church each Sunday, and praying to our Heavenly Father. I know and promise that we will be happier for doing so. I know for sure that missionaries are blessed when we are exactly obedient. :)
