Well, it was another one of those busy Sister Training Leader weeks.... I packed my bag on Monday planning to be gone for 5 days! Like another mini vacation. We left Monday night. Got to the mission home around 9. Had a great time, as always, talking to Sister Cannon. Got to relax a bit and play the piano. Then crashed in their awesome comfy beds!

Don't fall asleep reading this... I'm almost done! Sorry, it's pretty long. Crazy week. =)we helped someone move their storage unit. It was kinda fun. The Elders helped. She was moving her unit from upstairs to downstairs. Luckily the place had an elevator. Then we had a fantastic scripture study with Katie and Kaydon. Katie has a hard time understanding the scriptures (who doesn't). So we brought a member along with us, Sister Isaacson, and had a really good study. Even Kaydon was interested. He was in time out, then Katie had him come down and read with us. So he was grumpy at first, but he was the one that suggested we read another chapter. Reading scriptures really does change attitudes. Next time we will invite Katie's husband John who isn't a member to read with us. Hopefully he will join! After that we went to the walk in clinic for Sister Bailey. She has been having stomach problems for three weeks and she finally gave in and went to the doctor. Not sure what it is yet, but we are figuring it out. We spent most of the rest of the day there. Then went to Sarah's for dinner. She was the one this time that suggested the prayer! That was exciting because she never does that, and never even participates in the prayer. One step in the right direction! then we went to stake conference. They talked about missionary work of course, which I assume was talked about everywhere. The cutest returned missionary spoke. She loves sharing the gospel. She just got home from Japan. I want to be like that when I get home! Just happy, and excited, and cute! She is a great example for me. After conference I saw a bunch of people from Enterprise!! I was so excited! =) They all bombarded me with hugs. It was great. I even saw the Lowes! Me and Sister Lowe both screamed and hugged and hugged and hugged. haha I miss them! =) So great to see them!
It was really a fantastic week! Even though I wasn't home for 5 days I had a good time. We felt the spirit. We were led by the spirit. We had great discussions and scripture studies. And it was just all around one of the best weeks on the mission! Sister Bailey is determined to finish her mission strong. So even though she is excited to go home and talks about what she will be doing at home she does her best to use every minute of the rest of her 4 weeks to do the Lord's work. I love her! She is one of the best companions ever. We have so much fun. We laugh a lot, and tease each other, and work together well. We just have a great time. I'm sad she has to go home! Wish she didn't have to.
Wow... talk about long winded today! Sorry if I bored you. Didn't know I had so much to say. Guess I was making up from last week's short email.
Hope you all have a great week. Remember that the Lord loves you. He is aware of you and what you are going through. He is sending someone your way to help you through any and all of your trials. You just have to be patient, because he has to find someone who is trustworthy and is willing to follow the spirit. have FAITH in him and in Christ, be DILIGENT in keeping his commandments, and be PATIENT, he will help you. Just let him! =D
Love you all!!
