"I Really Shouldn't Be Held Accountable For Things I Say Before 9 AM..."

July 19, 2015

Well, the title quote comes directly from the mouth of my companion, Hermana Newell. I love her. We got the news this week that one of us will be getting transferred! Not sure which one, but we will find out this Saturday and transfers are next Tuesday! Another trasnfer, another companion! Asi es mi vida! haha.
So, not too much to update on this week!
Blanca is still progressing! On Tuesday after Zone Conference, President Murdock came to GWS and interviewed her for baptism. She passed the interview, but is not getting baptized yet. There is a really bad situation where she has to move into a room in her ex-boyfriend's apartment at the beginning of august. Well, it wouldn't be a problem, but the ex novio is A LOSER and is requiring that Blanca be his "partner" to live there... so that's not good. Therefore, we refuse to baptize her until she finds another room to rent because we don't want her to get baptized and then immediately turn around and break the law of chastity. But, we have been praying so diligently to find an apartment for her before August 1st! It's so difficult here in GWS because everything is so expensive and she has 2 children and can only pay $500 a month for rent! So PLEASE pray that we can find her an apartment so she can get baptized before transfers! Since Tuesday, we haven't been able to see her since she was working on the food for a wedding of a friend. But, she told us she has been reading the BOM on her own! She has never really taken it upon herself to do personal study so this was a HUGE step! We are praying for her to be baptized this Sunday!!! :)

Zone Conference on Tuesday was wonderful! We had some really amazing trainings given by President and Sister Murdock about FASTING. This is something I've struggled to gain a testimony of my whole life so i'm really excited to apply the principles taught.
I hope you all have a great week! Love you bunches!!!
