This week has been really awesome and definitely gone by really fast. On Sunday my companion Sister Woahn was called to be the new coordinating sister! I'm so excited for her! Where does that leave me you might ask? Well since I'm the only other girl in the whole zone, I am now authorized to be a solo Sister, which means that I am a companion to an Elder Companionship. Usually I go with Elder Reber and Elder Wilson, they are my favorite, but I always feel awkward cause if I have to go to the bathroom, they have to take me and wait outside of the door for me to go. It's always nice when I get to see my companion after she's been gone for a while though!
We get our travel plans next week!!! So that's really exciting!
Sunday we also had a pretty awesome devotional and he spoke about the
Book of Mormon Musical (FYI he said in no way does he ever want
anyone to see this). The man who wrote it isn't LDS, but his wife is, and
in an interview, even the man said that it was the most vile disgusting
play that anyone could ever see. He said that it should be rated R, but
the church took this as a huge opportunity to get out there and let
people know what we were all about. They got a huge jumbo tron and
put it in New York Times Square and they were able to get the news out
on taxis and everything. Within the first week of it being opened,
hotels everywhere were calling Salt Lake to get more Books of Mormon
because they had run out! Also since the man's wife was mormon, she
still has a lot of respect for the LDS people and so he met with the
church and asked if they wanted some free advertising space inside
of the program. The LDS church has three pages on the Book of Mormon and
where you can go to get one and find out more about the mormons. I just
think that that is so amazing! That through what some would call a
catastrophy, we have really strived and been able to have a miracle come
out of it instead.
Elder Ostler was sick this whole week with hand foot and mouth
sickness, he's gotten a lot better though and he should be able to come
back to class from now on, so that is really great! Elder Ewell has been
sick pretty much his whole time here at the MTC but has been working
really hard, so keep him in your prayers!
At Gym we play lightning now, we started it a couple of weeks ago (my
kasama and I) and everyone loves it! We pretty much have the whole gym
in with us now :)
The older districts left yesterday, so now it's just us :( sad day :( well! Love you all!
