WOAH. Today we spent the day in Ossining for transfers! The new missionaries are here!!! We drove by them yesterday as they drove to the mission house. I was thinking.. HEY.. That was JUST me, driving to the mission home all anxious. Feels good to have a foot in now and I made sure to give all those cute sisters big hugs because I loved that about my first transfer meetings. I met sister Brecken who just got here, so cute!! We were friends on Instagram and we instantly clicked! We will for sure be close friends and email. Hopefully we can serve together at some point!! 2 Sister's in this mission graduated from Cottonwood same year as Park and Mads, which is cool. I am staying in Scarsdale with Sister Gardner, which I already knew. I need her too much. We are getting a new roomie/Hermana today so we have been like deep cleaning our place.
Transfers-- Presidents Smith:
-"Be yourself, the Lord called YOU!"
You can help others with the things you've been through.
-"One day our hearts will skip a beat when we hear/see New York. Because of the love we have & relationship we will gain with the Lord. Find your Jesus!"
-What will you do today to help someone else, what will I do today to come closer to Christ. Forget about the other things the world confuses us with.
-" Take it up to the Lord. I'm here!! What would you have me do. Check in with the Lord. Ask him why you are in Scarsdale. There is a reason!"
This week was a little bit of a blur for me.
We had a sisters lunch with all our Zone this week. Jessica who has us over every week catered for us all. She is such an awesome person. We love Jess a lot. Not only because she makes us yummy food every week, but because she takes on a lot. She donates and gives a lot to this safety home for kids and moms who are living there temporarily. This week we got to help her a lot with that. She wanted us to be apart of it. We went to her bake sale, helped her get items at Walmart, and then made sure it was all good to go. She is a really selfless person and has the cutest children. She does not have an easy life, but gives everything that she has.
Dinner appointment of the week: The Treu's
4 kids. I'm in love with each of them.
Weston's (5 yrs old) dimples and smile are to die for.
The lesson was "Why is Jesus Christ important to you?"
Weston: "He feels my ouchies"
"I feel him in my belly" ( the Holy Ghost )
Aubrey: His example
Kids are PRECIOUS and there is nothing better than simple and pure prayers and answers about what matters most.
We got Thai food with President, William, and his friend Matthew (friends with the Hanson's)!!! <3 my favorite food
I had my first Skype lesson with sister gardner's old investigator, Jazmin! She is in North Carolina right now. It went really well and The Spirit was definitely there. The Lanier's were in South Carolina still this whole week so it felt different not going over there, but then we saw them. Their baptism is being moved back a week because most people will be gone that week in the ward. It will definitely be a big event. So many have been apart of their journey here. Miguel is baptizing his family and has been going out with the Elder's knocking doors. How cool would it be if he served a mission. I think he is definitely thinking about it. Miguel is VERY flirtatious, so yea.... I need to learn how to act when that happens. Some people here are just been very blunt & complimentary and I just smile!
This new transfer will be AWESOME. We are going to work hard & hopefully see more little miracles. I hope summer is great and that everyone is having lots and lots of fun.
Love you guys!
Love, Sister Vassau
