This has been such a fun week!! As my title suggests, it was BUTT COLD this week. Still is mind you. When I first received my call to serve here in Jacksonville, Florida and people told me it would actually get cold, I laughed in their face. Well guess who is laughing now... everyone. Literally everyone cause it's frigid. But it makes caroling feel more normal!
This past week we had our mission Christmas party and it was a blast! I love seeing all of my mission friends and meeting new ones. I'm so grateful to be serving a mission during Christmas. I said it last week and I'm probably say it a few times more but I LOVE CHRISTMAS AS A MISSIONARY. It's the best.
Transfers were this week and Sister Gilbert and I are safe!! I'm going to be in St. Augustine for 7.5 months! Cue the applause. 🎉🎉 I'm so excited to be here for another transfer. I love being able to serve with the deaf and use the talents God gave me to help them. I love love this area!! The other sisters, Sister Knudsen and Sister Daniels, are also staying!! Yay for the #StressSquad staying together for another 6 weeks!! As for the elders, we will be gaining a brand new greenie fresh from the MTC in our district as well as another elder who has been out for just a little less than me. It's going to be a good one!!
My scripture this week is found in the Book of Mormon.
"Peace, peace be unto you, because of your faith in my Well Beloved, who was from the foundation of the world." Faith in Jesus Christ is vital! That's why it's the first principle in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As we rely on our faith in the Savior, not only will we be okay but we will have peace and KNOW we will be okay. That's one of the many blessings of having faith and what a blessing that is. I'm so grateful for the peace and knowledge that comes from having a foundation in Christ.
I love y'all! Have a fantastic week!
