Mummy and Daddy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exciting news for this week!!!!!!!!!!!
Miss Rosemary Cousins was BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOO HOO!!!!!!!! ONE WORD: PHENOMENAL! President and Sister Lindley came. Rose was baptized, and she came out giggling and glowing....that might have been because Brother Wilkinson gave her an extra shove under because her hair floated up. Nervous laughter for her brush with death hahahah. Sister Taylor and I sang, "I Know That My Redeemer Lives," a cappella. There was definitely a moment when our nervous voices melted away and something seemed to happen in that room. I had that strange thing happen to me where my mouth plugs along, but I can look out into the audience and observe...it's very bizarre really. People bawled...especially Kevin, Sara and Rose. It definitely wasn't because of our voices. It was the Spirit! It was amazing! We got roped into singing in Sacrament meeting and for Zone Conference in a few weeks....hello! yikes. Sara and Kevin announced their wedding....so that we can be there....Jan 14th, 2012...hopefully they'll move it up for us. and be baptized and experience all the fantastical blessings God wants for them! Kevin came up to us after the service and requested his own Book of Mormon, because he wants to find God in his life as well! BAM! MIRACLE!
Rose had the Jehovah's Witnesses call 'round the Tuesday after she was confirmed a member of the church. The conversation went as follows:
"Hello Miss, We are Jehovah's Witnesses, and we'd love to talk to you more about our God's name and his purpose."
"Oh... I'm a Mormon."
"Oh.................how long have you been a Mormon?"
"I've been a Mormon for a LONG time!" hahahahaha! BAM! MIRACLE!
A long time...hahahahah...what....a day and a half? hahahah she's so great!
What else happened this week? Well...Sister Taylor and I got to experience the first rugby match of our lives!!!!!!! IT WAS SO FANTASTIC! The sound of skulls crunching and bodies thudding to the ground! haHA! That's what I'm talking about...non-stop action! It just might be my new favorite sport to watch! Whoo-hoo!
We also had a monster exchange this week. Three extra sisters came to us and we rampaged our area. There was on tender moment. Sister Lomiga started talking to this old lady....after quite a while they both were in tears.... I made my way over there to hear the old woman say, "I'm sure I know you from somewhere...this feeling I have inside is so peculiar...I'm sure we've met before. I feel as though I've known you all my life." Sister Lomiga pleaded with this woman to come to church and to learn about the gospel. We'll see what comes from it. Wow. Miracle!
All is well here in Wharfe Valley. I'm happy and sleepy :D what else is new right :D hahahha. I'm so excited to speak with you soon! I love you so so so much and I'm praying for you all! Thank you for everything! Thank you for letting me be out here! I can't think of anything else I would rather be doing! This gospel is so true! It brings people so much comfort....and it stretches me on a daily basis. I love you!
Love always and forever
Your Sister White
