And Then There Was a Week....

Hoi hoi hoi!!!

J'honge honge what a splendid week! (Say that "ch-yong-a-yonga" Promise it's Dutch) Time is a flyin as I prepare to head to Europe in less than a week!

We got a bunch of new zendelingen this week, and haha, oh their dear little faces. I love them! They are so lost here, and they literally come to Sister Manning and I for Everything. Which is great! It's just that, well, I don't really know what to tell you when you just got your wisdom teeth out and there is food stuck in the empty socket...het spijtme, my dear. :) But it is fun times. Two St. Georgians in my zone, goin to Sweden! Drew Luke and Nate Jones! Comps and everything. We have fun times being friends. I also saw Hannah Schone this week, she is such a good soul.

Chad Lewis was our devo speaker on Sunday and Elder Godoy came yesterday. Can't go wrong there! They were incredible.

I had the absolute privilege of performing the musical number with Elder Hunter on Sunday. He sang "Savior, Redeemer of My Soul," and it was beautiful. I kept thinking "why am I the one that gets to do this? Why am I so lucky that I get to work with Elder Hunter, who is not only insanely talented musically, but has the talent of a magnificent testimony? And we get to share our testimony through music, here, at the MTC, together? Why do I get to use my talents so early on, when there are so many others with the same talents as me?" I never thought I would have that opportunity. But I am so so grateful for it.

I'm going to miss the safety of the MTC, but I can't wait to spread the gospel abroad! Go missionary work! The gospel is true!
