Hello, all! Happy New Year!
This week was interesting. We stayed in a lot because Sister Jensen
hasn't been feeling well. On Friday Sister Jensen and I went to metro
(which is now called Specialized Missionary Training) with Sister
Smith because we were on an exchange. But this time it was in
downtown Tampa and it was so cool! We got to walk around the city and
see skyscrapers and a river walk.
On Saturday morning, we road tripped to Gibsonia for the baptism of a
young lady Sister Jensen taught. It was really special! I know
baptism is the path that Heavenly Father wants for us. The Spirit was
there testifying that this girl had made the right choice. That
night, we went to the Cooks for some New Year's festivities - food,
games, and "torching the tree." They threw their Christmas trees in
their fire pit. The flames were massive! It was so cool! (Kids,
don't try this at home)
Yesterday there were a ton of activities in the ward. One family
hosted a crepe fest, another had their son getting baptized, and
another had an engagement party for one of their daughters. So that
was an exciting day. The little boy getting baptized had his older
missionary brother videotape himself giving one of the talks, which
Anyway, we are excited to see what this week will bring! I hope you
all start the year off great!
