This week was transfers!! They took my Sister Newbold away! I was actually quite shocked! But it seems the Lord has plans greater than we can see so I'm trusting him every single day. It's the best!
My new companion is Sister Harris, and crazy enough she has served in North Platte before! (she was trained here by Sister Stiles... small world!) So she knows the area better than I do so that's useful! The ward was super surprised to see her back but it's cool to work with her.
Our week was kind of crazy! We were just going going going which is great, but also a bit tiring. We helped a family move in and are excited to be helping them adjust to the ward. We also had some really powerful lessons one with my favorite people the Redhouses... We invited them to read the Book of Mormon every day and if they did we'd act out the tree of life for them.... I never thought that would make an 8 year old so excited, so this week we have plans to act out the tree of life... should be pretty epic.
So weird study experience this morning I wanted to share. So I have a very distinct memory of watching General Conference with Grandma McMaster October 2003. I don't really know why but it was one of the years you all went to St. George with out me and I stayed with Grandma, but I remember really loving the talk by President Monson about bridges. This was just a vague memory but this morning I was reading Sister Harris' ensign which happened to be from Oct. 2003 and found the talk by President Monson. It's a sweet talk and I wanted to share with you the poem from his talk:
An old man, going a lone highway,
