this past week was a roller coaster ride of wonderful and amazement! I began the week in Taylor Mountain 2, my previous area. That area was SO incredible for me. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about leadership while I was there. I learned, more fully, that leadership isn't about serving OVER others but serving with or UNDER others. It is an opportunity to be an example and unless you fulfill the very call that you give others, it is hypocritical! Also, the correct way to lead and guide is to teach correct principles and let others govern themselves. End of story! :) I had the opportunity to meet amazing people that have changed my life! The opportunity I had to serve with Elder Olson and Elder Dalling was amazing! Those elders are great men that I will always remember! Overall, Taylor Mtn 2 is the best area other than all the other areas which are also the best areas ever! ;)
Alright, here we go! IF North 1 with Elder Fontes! This area is CRAZY. I have had some wild experiences! WE are amongst some of the most humble and wonderful people that I know. :) Elder Fontes is incredible as well! When he talks, PEOPLE LISTEN! It's as simple as that! He has got a fire for the work and we are excited to move forward together in this great cause and bring about much fruit! BRING IT ON WORLD! We have our zone training tomorrow as well! This zone is amazing! There is a lot of good stuff going on. In our zone, we have all the sisters serving in the Visitor's Center as well as all the IF Spanish missionaries and on top of that, we have the biggest zone in the mission! Talk about an amazing dynamic! Elder Fontes is teaching me a lot though and is most definitely teaching me a lot too!
Finally, Sister Fica's sealing. What a day!!! It was AMAZING! So many memories and joyful feelings were abundant in the temple that day! She was GLOWING! The spirit of the Lord was there. I know that with all my soul! The Lord is in His Holy Temples! :) Elder Abbott (Now JT) and I got to be Sealing Witnesses too! I had never done that! It was AMAZING! We got to sign her marriage certificate and everything! :)
Overall, the joy of Idaho Falls is abundant and we are drinking it in generously! :) I love you all so much! Thank you for your prayers and support! I know with all my soul that the Book of Mormon is the word of God! I invite everyone to read from it, ponder it, and pray about the message it contains! You will come to know with more surety that Jesus is the Christ, that the Priesthood has been restored to the earth and the Lord's kingdom is BACK! :) Go share the Gospel with someone today! :)
