This week was pretty good :) We had Zone Conferences this past Friday and Saturday so that was good to have an interview with President Rowley and also to hear his counsel on Saturday morning. He also told me I would probably be transferring to Jakarta next week so this is probably my last week and a half in Bogor, which is way sad because Bogor is pretty much my home but I'm also ready for a change in my mission.
Last P-day right after emailing we got a call from Sister _____ saying that ____ told her she wants to get BAPTIZED!! Oh my goodness! Crazy miracle! We haven't been able to meet with her for a couple of weeks because of her work but she still has that desire! We taught her on Thursday and she still has a desire but has a long way to go too because we barely finished the first lesson with her. Hopefully she can also get her work schedule fixed so she can come to church on Sunday. She is so cute and I know that if she really reads and really wants to get baptized, the Lord will provide a way. Also, her older Sister isn't a member so she sat in the lesson and listened so we are hoping her Sister's husband can become active again and his wife can be baptized so we can bring a whole family into the church. That would be amazing!!
In Bogor, our District Leader Elder Richman planned missionary week! The youth in the ward had to be like a missionary all week. They had to get up at 6:30 and go to bed at 10:30, share the gospel, not use their phones for Facebook or games or watch tv or listen to music and there were a couple of other missionary rules they had to follow. There was also a personal study schedule Elder Richman made up with the Christlike Attributes of Chapter 6 of Preach My Gospel. They also were given companions and had to visit a member family like we do haha. Their testimonies were so cute during Sacrament meeting! Also, a couple moms of the youth shared their testimonies and it was cool to hear how much they loved it too :) We had a little missionary devotional where we gave talks and they shared some of their experiences after church. It was fun and the ones who did it had some pretty cool experiences!
I think that's about all for this week! I'm glad catherine and John found a house and I'm also glad that our house didn't sell like sneaky mom thought to trick me with hahaha.
Also I got my Easter Package! I literally almost cried when I saw the goldfish because ask Sister Rowntree, I have been craving them for like 2 weeks and I literally almost had tears in my eyes. I haven't opened them yet though because I don't want to be sad when they're gone hahaha.
I hope you all have a great week!
Love, Sister Davis
