When did I get so old??
We had a crazy week! Like we literally taught about 4 lessons the whole week because we were never in our area.
We had zone conference with President and Hermana Thurgood and then they sent me to the hospital because I have a lump on my foot from where i hurt it a month ago, I had an xray and it is a mass of blood on the bone. The doctor wanted me to have altrsound treatment twice a week for 2 months but we spoke to specialists in the USA and they said its not necessary.
We had 4 little angels called Family Senlle turn up on tuesday night with food! It was amazing, theyre our little family. Its the last week of the month so we were eating rice for breakfast and dinner hahaha
This week I had to do a few trainings on how to use FamilySearch which is a website for discovering our geneology. It is fun! we are going to be helping the council with a expo in 2 weeks.
On thursday I became and "Aunty" again to twin girls Kensi Eva Turner and Alysha Baylee Turner!! Best birthday present ever!! Congrats to Chelsea and Mckay!
Today I am 21 years old! I feel like I am actually old now, its the first time I have felt that way haha. We have our zone activity today so I sorta get a birthday party.
But I am nottoo disappointed really. I have many more birthdays to come, maybe I wont be 21 again but being here has made me really understand what is important. I can think of no better way to celebrate being born than making a difference in the lives of other people, serving others and in the process really growing up.
"We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out" (1Tim 6:7) but we can leave our mark on the hearts and lives of families that will continue through the geenrations. I am pleased to have the oportunity to bring this gospel to the lives of these people, and I have seen the miracles that it causes in the lives of people who accept and imbrace it.
Alma 29 is my favourite chapter in the Book of Mormon at the moment and this scripture is my fav at the moment:
I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.
There is no greater joy that to serve with all my heart, soul, strength.
Thank you all for your love and support over these past 21 years! Especially to my parents who raised me well, who loved me and supported me. I am who I am because of them and I am eternally greatful!
I love you all,
