Washington, Week 14

Well, not a whole ton happened this week. Today is transfers though, so we stopped at a library on the way to the mission office in Bellevue. Sister Redford is being transferred, which is a big surprise to everyone, as she only has 4 weeks left before she goes home, but I guess that's just Heavenly Father's will. Another sister who only has 4 weeks left is being transferred as well. Anyway, I'll be meeting my new companion in a couple hours.
One exciting thing that did happen is that we had our first member missionary class on Sunday! It was SO good! The Spirit was really strong and Bishop Havens told us that everyone told him that they loved it and they are really excited to be having it. Tonight will be our Book of Mormon book club again and then Thursday will be our first class of the member missionary class for those taking it on Thursdays. I'm excited and I hope my new companion is as excited about it as I am! :)

Also...Billy committed to baptism last night!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray! He is the boyfriend of a less-active member in our ward. Her son Nic committed to baptism last week. Both Billy and Nic will be getting baptized September 7th!! I'm SO happy! And after Billy said "Yes", that he would like to be baptized, he just couldn't stop smiling. The joy was all over his face. It was so wonderful, and I am just so excited for them! Laurielee is the 6-year-old daughter and she is just the cutest! She talks every time about how she wants to be baptized so she can be all clean! :)
Well, those are the highlights of the week. Also, I had an MRI on Wednesday, ordered by an orthopedist I went to because my nerves in my arms and hands have been all out of whack and I've had lots of pain. He thinks it might be a herniated disc in my neck. No news yet, but I'll let you know!
I love you all! Thank you for your prayers and support and letters! They mean the world to me!
Love, Sister Stanley
