has been a long one, and at times not so fun. We had to drop three of
our investigators (one of which is a cute 12 year old that reminds me
so much of Tyler. He says he wants to get baptized, but he never comes
to church) and Haidy is not doing very well either. We watched the
movie The Testemants with Haidy, and she loved it, we even had another
young women come with us and her testimony was awesome. However, we got a few texts from Haidy later in the week and she said she just
doesn't think this church is for her. My heart hurts. Also, transfers
are coming soon, and there is a good chance Hermana Moberly will
become a sister training leader which means I might be getting a new
companion. Ouch. We will see what happens. Missions are full of change
and I hate it, but I have to learn to get used to it.
Anyway, on to the good news... I had exchanges this week with Hermana
DeBry this week and it was awesome! I leaned a lot and I have SO MUCH
to work on, always. I will never be done improving as a missionary.
Also we learned a few weeks ago about the Easter initiative for the
church. I'm sure you've seen the Video by now, but if you haven't,
watch Because He Lives, it is awesome!!! We got to see it a day before
it was released. Also on Easter Day that video will be the first one
that comes up when you go to YouTube!!! How cool!? The charla fogonera
with the recently baptized Spanish speakers was so good!!! And so sad
because the three missionaries in the Spanish program that are leaving
this transfer gave their testimonies, I don't even know them and I
will miss them! Also as we learn Spanish our English gets worse, it's
pretty funny. H Moberly was about to get the mail and she said, "I
wonder if the post officer has come yet?"
Sorry that is all I can think of right now.
Love H Peabody
Well, NOT an April Fool's Joke, but Mom almost lost the whole blog--not telling Ashley about that one! She'll never know unless she reads this when she's back from her mission! Thanks to the Weebly tech guy who helped me realize I had just renamed the "Blog" and "lost" it temporarily! We are back up and posting!
Ashley had a different week, and yes, changes are coming, but that's the name of the game apparently. She is still doing great, although will be sad to not be companions with Hermana Moberly if Moberly gets "promoted" to a Trainer Leader. She has been a great trainer for Ashley and is a wonderful missionary! I love all the new friends Ashley is meeting on this adventure! Ashley also got to meet one of Mom's past Young Women Leaders, Sister Carolyn Shipp. What a great circle of life we have! Ashley got a couple packages from Mom this and one delicious one from Grandma Horne. This week's emails were shorter than usual, so not as much info as in the past, but there's always next week!
