Opposition In All Things! It's Just Life!! - Letter 08/10/15

So this week flew by so fast! I've been doing so much better this week than last week. Thank you for all the prayers and support! So in the recent months, I've been teaching myself how to play the piano, and I'm learning how to play the Hymns. I was asked to play at a baptism so I practiced and practiced and practiced some more, but I chickened out.. I was way too scared! But I did end up playing in Relief Society! I want to develop a new talent, or renew an old one;) sorry mom I never practiced when I was little! 

In other news, last night we had the opportunity to have a Mission President's Devotional and three General Authorities came and spoke to us and all of our investigators and recent converts. It was awesome! Elder Corbridge of the Seventy spoke about the power of Christ's Atonement and the first vision of Joseph Smith. It was a powerhouse of testimonies! As the church continues to grow so will the opposition.. Even when we are trying our hardest, opposition still comes, but that is life. 
A sister missionary and her companion in my mission Saturday went to the rescue of a mom and her 3 small children, as they went to talk with them the woman tried to tell them to get away and run because a man was after them. The sisters quickly went to the car and the man threw a huge rock through their window and Sister Marrott's face and hand got severely severed.  She ended up having emergency surgery Sunday morning, and bore her testimony at the devotional! It was powerful. I know Heavenly Father is mindful of us, and even though bad things often happen we need never feel alone, because we never are. The only person who knows what it was like to be alone was the Savior. So even when we feel utterly alone, or sad, or whatever the circumstances may be, Heavenly Father is there with us, REMEMBER that. 

This week is going to be great! We have our Mission Tour Tuesday, and several activities planned out for this week! My mission is passing way too quickly!  Transfers are the 27 of August and I will start my final transfer. I look back and can't believe how fast it has all gone. I'm so grateful for the things I'm learning and doing everyday. I love being a missionary, I love serving others, and I love my Heavenly Father! The Church is true, and has changed my life! 

Have a great week everyone!
