Mummy and Daddy,
What a week! We've had some big things happen....Some of which I'll have to let the photos describe.
However, I do have to tell you about a few things in as much detail as I can pound out in fifteen minutes.
Glen's baptism!!!!! WHOO!!!! GOOFY GLEN JOHN MORRISON OF THE SCOTTISH MORRISON CLAN GOT BAPTIZED!!! WHOO! Oh bless, it was such a good night. We went to fetch him and he was all prepped with his "supplies" (dry pants, change of clothes, towel etc...) and we trotted over to the chapel. We got him all situated, took photos, and waited for all the guests to arrive. He stood in the corner, fully starched, knees knocking about. Finally it came time for the baptism to take place. Elder James waded into the water and invited Glen to come in. Glen sloshed his way down. After five anxious minutes of figuring out facings hand holds, Elder James, raised his hand to the square. From the moment the prayer began, Glen clenched his nose closed like there was no tomorrow....then it was time to go under! Glen's eyes sprang open, and like a board, he was lowered into the water....eyes still dinner plates.....then.....bubbles....bubbles....more bubbles....but instead of sputtering his way up, he emerged with this grin that pushed his ears out of the way! Oh it was glorious! GLEN GOT BAPTIZED! BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT!
Transfers!!!!! Remember how I told you how it felt like my time was limited here in Worksop....well....Last Night was Transfer Call night.....AND......I am so inspired :D hahahahaha Sister Terry and I held our breath as we listened to the answer phone message from our Zone Leaders I'm going to Wharfe Valley (Leeds) with Sister Lamb (I will still have a car! BAM! MIRACLE!), and Sister Rausch (who I was in the MTC with) is coming from Wharfe Valley to Worksop to be with Sister Terry! WHoo! I don't want to go. It feels right. It feels like I'm leaving home again, but I'm glad to be leaving at the same time. Heck! I knew I'd be transferred six weeks ago when the transfer began! BAM! MIRACLE! Day one of the transfer in December I naturally packed stuff away and wrote my "good-bye" notes...I have a lot of junk...how does this happen? It was like ripping off a band-aid one leg hair at a time for six weeks! JUST RIP IT OFF ALREADY :D hahahahhah So I'll go have another party...this time in Leeds. I'll let you know my address details etc. I love how mission life is kaleidoscopic! Always Changing. Always Colorful! I love being a missionary so much! I can't even tell you how much I love it! I love how I get to watch the gospel changing peoples' lives! I love being able to ask for miracles and help make them happen! Oh wow. I love knowing that what I'm doing is true! I love how my job is the best job ever....besides rollercoaster-tester-outers....I would like to try that one out for a bit :D I know this church is true. There's no doubt in my mind! I love how it all makes sense! I love how God knows me, loves me, and is giving me all these opportunities to be better and to learn summat! I love him so much! I love you, family! Thank you for all you do for me. Thank you for the many prayers and future mail :D wink wink
... as much as I love opening the water bill.... :D Know that I think of you often! You're the best I could ever ask for.
All my love,
Always and forever
your Sister Stephanie White
