hello family! tomorrow is transfers again! i'm staying in huntington, and my new companion will be sister bojorquez. i'm realllly excited because i've met sister bojorquez a few times and she's really great. she will be my first companion who has been out longer than me (besides my trainer), so that will be nice, because i still feel like i don't know what i'm doing half the time, haha.
sister burner and i made easter eggs to pass out to kids. in the eggs we put in a piece of candy and a scripture reference. well apparently we got one of our scripture references wrong. we meant to write matthew 28:5-6, but we wrote matthew 27:5-6 instead, and that's not good because that's when judas commits suicide. oh well, children will learn about that story sooner or later anyways.
had some beautiful baptisms! we called it our flower baptisms because it was for 2 girls named ---- and -----. they are not related and didn't know each other, but i guess now they do because they were baptized at the same time. one of them almost didn't get baptized because some people were telling her we don't believe in God but we believe in jose smith instead. she didn't meet with us for a few days, and it worried us alot. but she said she prayed about it and felt so good, and she was telling us this while she was crying. so since we missed so many days meeting her, we had to cram most of the lessons in 1 hour the day before her baptism interview. but it all went so good. so so so so good.
i've always been a sensitive person, but i think my mission has made me even more sensitive. i cried so many times this week. one time was at a funeral for a man that i had only met for 2 minutes. but i started crying when his mom was speaking. i couldn't imagine having to speak at my own child's funeral. you could hear how she was grieving. but she also had so much hope in her voice because she knew she would see her son again and that he was in a better place. another time when i cried was yesterday during one a sacrament meeting easter program. there were little primary kids singing, "gethsemaneeeee! jesus loves meeeeee!" and i couldn't help it! it was so precious! ahh i'm a nutcase now, hahahahaha.
this week is the mission's semianual temple trip! i'll be going to the manti temple, and i'm so excited!!!!!!! i've ony seen pictures and it looks gorgeous! it's the second temple built in utah. st. george is the first. i'm in love with st. george.
