Three transfers!

Well after an amazing three transfers, Elder Sullivan is getting transfered! We have had such a great time here in Cary! We most definitely have the best apartment situation right across the hall from the zone leaders, and Elder Sullivan being the district leader, we get to have some great fun together. Preparation days are the greatest with them. Being a missionary is amazing, because you get to meet so many amazing people. And what's even better, is that you get to become best friends with them. I'll let you know who is coming here next week! :D

This week was a great week. We were able to get up with Gloria again! We had a lesson with her two days in a row with members, and then she came to church the next day! Wow! We tried for so long to work things out to get her to church! She still has a hidden doubt it feels like that is keeping her from reading regularly and praying, but she made leaps and bounds this week. We will see if we can find that this week.

Oh wow, I remember now why it was such a great week! I thought it just was! This week we had a mission tour with Elder Baxter! That was amazing. Truly, absolutely, amazing. To be in the presence of one who loves you so much, and is truly reflecting the love of the savior, feels incredible. The instruction that we received from him and President and Sister Berhisel was all about love in the end. Learning to truly love every one of the people that we work with. That has been made manifest in our work this week. We have been able to see how much we have changed the lives of people as we have made stops to say goodbye for Elder Sullivan. We truly love the people here.

One experience where we were able to experience the love for the people here was with a service project that we did for Sister Damares. She has had holes in her floor underneath the carpet ever since she got back from chicago in about april. The renters didn't leave the house in very good condition...
We had several of the brethren in the branch there doing great work. We ended up completely replacing the floor in her room, and fixing a leak in her bathroom. It was a mess, but super fun. She has not been doing well recently, and this was a huge service for her! Seeing this situation get resolved has been a very special thing. I'll put some pictures up.
This week was amazing! I love this gospel! In D&C35:12 it says "And there are none that doeth good except those who are ready to receive the fulness of my gospel, which I have sent forth unto this generation." Talk to the good people that you know! They are ready to receive a gospel truth in their life!
Also, comment on missionaries statuses and share them! We don't know your friends, but you do! Help them to find the gospel! :D
I love you all so much! Que tengan una semana excelentísima!
