Well, I am getting transferred to a new area. Elder Fuller is going home and I will be getting transferred to New Castle, Indiana with Elder Smith. I can't wait! :D I will let you all know my address next week.
I am going to add a snippet from my email to President Welch.
This transfer has been a great one and I have thoroughly loved and enjoyed working and being companions with Elder Fuller. I have learned a lot this week. A big thing I learned is it's not about me. One of the struggles I had, it wasn't anything big but it was very consistently a small thing, Elder Fuller LOVES to sing. ALL THE TIME! I love music and he has a great voice, but it was a lot. At first it really got on my nerves, but I prayed for charity, I prayed and begged God to help change me. To help me to see and love him as he does. It took a couple weeks before I got to where it didn't bother me a lot and now I am to the point where I enjoy listening to him sing all the time. I join him in singing all the time and we sing together a lot, and have a great time doing it. My testimony of music and the power it has to invite the spirit has grown tenfold. Now while this may seem a small thing, I know God heard my prayers and blessed me over time to see him more as he does. This makes me happy because I love Elder Fuller and want to enjoy the things he enjoys and find joy in seeing him happy because I know that singing makes him happy. I am happy that I found that. That God heard my prayers. There were many other things I learned, but that was one thing I felt impressed to share.
Each transfer we learn many knew things. All are of great importance. But one thing I know is it is not about us in this work or in our lives. It is about Jesus Christ and his work. That is when we see the miracles, the change, and the "exceedingly great joy" spoken of in the Book of Mormon. It is hard to put off the natural man, but as we do, our lives are greatly blessed and filled with light. I would encourage each of you to find something, some way you can change and serve Jesus Christ and I promise he will bless you with great joy. Even if it is hard. I love you all and hope you have a great week.
Conference was amazing!!! I loved it so so so much. :D In listening to Elder Ballards talk about goals/plans are there any goals or plans you have made since then, or before then, that you are working towards? Any ways you are wanting to change? I know I am wanting to change in many ways, but I think 2 big things for me is being more diligent in 1) Always looking to Christ. Doubt not and fear not. 2) Acting on first promptings every time. Those are more of plans. And as for goals I am trying to find my voice. To really find and become who I and God want me to become. And become firm in that. I want to become a true disciple of Jesus Christ. :)
