It was a great week. I don't have a ton of time to email - I am sorry! I used all my time reading your email, and I am so glad I did! It brought me a lot of joy to read it. I absolutely love that quote by Elder Holland - please send it to me!! Hermana Wright and I are companions again!! We are staying in Torrence. I'll just say that I LOVE Sister Wright so much! I will MISS Hermana Shepherd, I LOVE her....
|Reunited again with Sister Wright and a sweet sister from the ward, doing a mini-mission with them!|
We had a BAPTISM yesterday of F. and it was so amazing! It was an awesome experience for me to see how Heavenly Father prepares His children. It was also a reminder that I have so many sweet angels around me preparing the people I teach. When he got down into the water he had the biggest smile on his face!
He was so happy. I asked him afterward, how he felt and he said he felt light, like something had been lifted off of him. Baptisms bring such a rewarding feeling - to know that a soul has entered into this path of joy and happiness with our Heavenly Father. He is excited for the temple and for the things that come. I will write more in a letter to you! But it was a very special experience for me. I felt the spirit so very strong as I sat there.

I don't have much to update you on except, I truly do feel healing in my heart and in my body. The Atonement is so real and I am so grateful that I get to use it. It brings us closer to our Savior and to our Heavenly Father. I love the blessings of the Gospel that we have so graciously been given. I love the blessings of my mission. I feel how much my Heavenly Father loves me and each of His children. I love you so much my dear, and am so proud of who you are!Love, Hermana Michelle
|Love these sisters!|
