Mummy and Daddy!!!!!!!!!!
The weeks seem to fly by don't they? Remember how it was just a year ago that I was trying to get all my mission papers done!?! WOW....that seems like only yesterday. Remember how it's officially my 7th month mark today?! QUOI!? Wow....I really don't know where the time goes. Remember how John Michael and Joyce Eleanor Bowman got BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOO! BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT! Oh it was so amazing!!!!!! They both were proper nervous, Mick especially, he was shaking all over the joint. Their story still boggles my mind.
Every day in Leeds, Mick picked up a pass along card from the Elders, and he went home and posted them on his wall for some reason. Then one day he was the lowest of the low, sat on his bed thinking to himself that he needed to change. He could not and would not continue living life the same way. He looked up at the cards....and stared at them for a good twenty minutes.....Something inside of him told him to call for a Book of Mormon. That was it....he did. He picked up the phone straight away, and then we came on the scene. The rest is history. He read, he prayed, felt the Spirit, and it completely changed his life around. Joyce watched her husband transform and knew there was something to this whole church thing. Three weeks later they were baptized!!!! BAM! MIRACLE!
I cannot tell you how incredible it was to watch the pair of them come out of that font (Mick came out a few times ;) and see their little eyeballs glitter about. After all the talks, and musical numbers finished, Mick stood and said a few words. He bore his testimony and thanked the people that helped him along in his journey...ending with Sister Lamb and myself. He called us his angels telling us we saved his life! :D The Spirit was whacking me in the uvula and I was all sorts of choked up! Oh it was incredible!
In other news after the baptism, we went over to a member's house for tea, and whilst we were waiting, their little girl played jungle gym on us. The mother calls said child over after a bit and says, "Let's put your medicine on".....huh?......Come to find out said child had............can you guess it.......chicken pox....no........leprosy...... no........cooties.......maybe........BUT she had.............Head Lice.......yes my friends, she had head lice. After a couple minutes of letting this "medicine" soak into the kid's hair, Sister Lamb pointed at her head and said," Uh.......are those lice?" This "medicine" (aka sludge of death) suffocated them out of hiding, and these black sesame seeds scurried down her forehead, making a break for the eyebrows!! BAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was our cue to go. So we went home at the end of the night and combed through each other's hair. Sister Lamb burrowed through my hair.....and the next two words she hissed did not make me happy....."*inhale* oh...no....." Yep....my friends, this little girl had head lice and so did we. :D BUT.....we treated it and we're lice free.....for now.....BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT!
We had such a good week. We just had Zone P-Day at the chapel.....we all played sports....you name it, we played it. I feel like I've been smacked with a stick....oh wait....I was...right in the face! I wish my camera wasn't dead so I could show you the gremlin of a blood blister growing out of my lip. :D EPIC! Not to worry, I have all my teeth still. But I was a fearsome warrior and beat everyone at chair football.....my one claim to fame :D Whatcha! I am so grateful to be out here. It's so crazy to see how much time has just flown by! ....I still have a few moments left before I have to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life :D hahah I love you so much! I am so thankful for prayer and the power I get from the many prayers that are said on my behalf. Thank you so much for letting me be out here! I love you so much!
Love Always and Forever
Your Sister White.
