We got transfer calls! *Drumroll please!*..........................

Jk, you already know, I put it in the subject. haha

I'm going back to Boise!!!!! 
I will be serving in the Amity Stake with Sister Marshall!
Seriously, I am SO excited.  Like, I'm really really sad to leave Paul, Idaho.  I love the community, people, farm land, small town, mountains, and everything about it here! It's literally been a dream for me as I've lived here... But, it's been a wonderful round and change has to come eventually.

But on the other hand, I am thrilled to return back to Boise!  

There's not too much else to report this week.

Cody was baptized!!! Cody was actually re-baptized because his records were lost.  He is 12 years old.  He hasn't been active until recently and that's why we discovered his records are non-existent. It was cool because at his baptismal interview he told our district leader that he's glad he's getting baptized again because the first time he was baptized he didn't feel that he took on the name of Christ. Now he is ready to make that commitment! The Lord works in mysterious ways...

It SNOWED this week! I thought that part of winter was over, but apparently not!  It's still snowing today.  Crazy.  But with the snow and Idaho wind comes big snow drifts (Snow that just keeps piling up).  With the snow drifts come Sister Carling's adventurous driving through them, because we have 4 wheel drive....(Haha Jk, I'm not crazy)  Aaaaaand with that comes us getting stuck! S.T.U.C.K.  We had a giant road grader plow come get us unstuck.  That was fun.

On Saturday night we had a WONDERFUL lesson with Kayla! Her husband Seth wasn't able to make it, but I am SO sad to be leaving them!!! I feel like they are a reason I served in the Hazelton ward.  They are making progress and are gaining an understanding of and desire to learn the gospel that they've never had before.  We taught her repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  We did an object lesson with bleach and food coloring to show that repenting cleanses our spirits.  We also watched a video about the debtor and Mediator.  Christ is the ONLY one who can and already has paid for our sins and salvation.  She really is grasping all of what we have taught her.  It makes me happy, but so sad to leave now!!

Ummm.... I'm tryin' to think of what else I can say.....

.....I got nuthin'.

This week is going to be an adventure, as I adjust back to city life.... haha  I sure am going to miss small town Idaho.  

Ponderize: Alma 42:15
And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except an atonement should be made;
therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercyto
appease the demands of justicethat God might be perfectjust God, and merciful God also.
I read Alma 42 this week.  I love these chapters that really explain the Plan of Salvation and how it works.  Mercy and Justice!--We can have both because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  It was cool to teach this principle to Kayla.  When we don't let Christ in to pay the difference from our sins, it's like having someone pay for our groceries and then leaving them at the store.  What a waist! Christ is our Mediator.  He makes us the difference...He is the difference!

Well.....Here I go, back to Boise! :D
