Hello everyone! Ok, so I need to just say that I am really sorry that I have not posted anything in a while. Things these past couple weeks have just been a little crazy and so I have not had much time to email. Although today I have time so I am glad I can update everyone! :)
Well the most exciting thing that has happened has been with our amazing investigator, Alex. She is just the best. I think I already said that she was a referral? Well we have been able to have the privilege of teaching her and just a couple weeks ago we asked her if she would be baptized on October 12th and she said yes!! I was so excited. She had not been to church which worried us a little, but then she came that Sunday! She was able to really enjoy being there, except she didn't stay for Relief Society. This week she has been reading the Book of Mormon everyday and she keeps praying about her baptismal date. She said that she knows she will be ready for that date. I am so excited for her and know it will be a great day. She has already grown so much. She has a love for the gospel and just wants to know more. She is an example to me! Sadly she didn't come to church this Sunday because of her sister’s birthday, but next week she will be there! I can't wait to keep teaching her and being able to just be a part of this journey with her. It makes me think of when I was just 8 getting baptized and how excited I was to be able to really take that first step in living the gospel!
Other than Alex we are just still trying to find more people to teach. The Herman family sadly we don't think are interested. We have been trying to set up a time to come and teach them again and they keep having to cancel. The funny part about it is that we keep running into them! We are just going to keep trying out best to find a time to teach them. Hopefully they will want to learn more and be willing to keep a time to meet with us!!
The ward has been great as always. The dinner appointments we don't seem to get as often anymore though. It's hard since there are two sets of missionaries. Also I think all the excitement of having sister missionaries in the ward has gone down.
There is not much else for me to talk about I guess. My companion now is going home and I am really sad about that! We have been together for about 3 months now. That is a long time to be with someone 24/7. I am grateful for all that she has taught me and for the time that I have been able to be with her. My new companion is Sister Reed. She was actually in my district so it's really exciting that we now get to be companions!! She is so nice and I am happy to be getting someone who will have some fresh ideas for this area. I love living with the Jones and I am SO happy that I get to stay with them for one more transfer. Which just means about a month and a half. Something exciting is that this next week we are having a mission tour. Elder Perkins from the seventy is coming! I am excited to meet him and to be able to learn all that I can from him.
I hope that all of you are doing well. I am loving my mission and all of the experiences that I am having. I know that this church is true. It is amazing and has blessed my life so much. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I love being able to have the time to read it everyday. It really does give me the strength that I need throughout the day. I love you all and I am so blessed to have the support and love that I have. I hope you have an amazing week, and hopefully I will be able to post again soon!!
Sister Brewster :)
