Got The Whole Earth Shakin-March 31st

GREEEETINGS! This week was really good :) We had one last sick day on Tuesday and then we were out and about for the rest of the week! FELT AMAZING!

First of all, yes the earthquake was felt in my area again. It was kinda funny actually... We had just gotten home and I was in the middle of saying our companion prayer and we felt the shaking start. VERY vaguely this time! Rebecca told us she felt like she was really dizzy and that's the best description for it! So Sister Moore and I both opened our eyes to see our balcony blinds just swaying, and stared at each other for a couple of seconds. "Yep. This is an earthquake!" We forgot the Amen and put on our shoes. I grabbed my camera.... Crazy how the signs of the times are becoming more and more prominent! "If ye are prepared ye shall not fear..." Me art not as prepared as I should be but ALMOST! So not so fearful :)

This week has been crazy for our Sisters! Last Monday, one Sister got hit by a car, yesterday we left church early to help another at InstaCare, and had a car full driving to and from Santa Clarita a few times yesterday for meetings with President. I LOVE getting to spend time with the Sisters!! I have learned way more than I thought I would. I'm grateful for each of their decisions to be out here and for how much they have taught me. I am really striving to truly understand charity as well. Before I left I thought "Oh yeah I get along with people. Charity? check." NOT EVEN CLOSE! I'm grateful the Lord continues to humble me on a weekly basis...

Yesterday being fast Sunday in our ward, Rebecca bore her testimony again. As exciting as it was to see her be baptized and enter into that ordinance, hearing her bear her testimony is probably even better!!! To see that she truly has changed her life and is being so blessed for it and now helping her family to see the same happiness in their life...there are no words! I cry every time haha No shocker... I'm excited for her to get to experience her first conference this week and continue to learn and grow even more. I love her so much! She hasn't missed a week at the temple since she's been baptized.

Nothing is better than the plan of happiness. With transfer calls coming again on Saturday, I'm really trying to keep in mind how much the Lord is aware of not only what I want, but also what I NEED! I love this valley. I love the ward! I'm so so grateful for the friendships and the examples they are to me! I feel blessed beyond belief to be where I am right now. I know the Lord is aware of all my struggles and fears and is continuing to help me stay aware of my weaknesses ;) So we're working on those as well... Hope you all have a WONDERFUL WEEK! And Happy Cesear Chavez day? (No idea what it is but it's a thing out here...) LOVE YOU!

With faith in every footstep,
