Well, it's almost transfer time again, and I have that dreaded "I'm pretty sure I'm leaving" feeling. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's also an exciting feeling...but I LOVE Ft. Laud so much and I especially love Sister Steg so much that I wish my time here would never end! I guess we'll see what happens with transfers next week. (oh my) President also hinted to us at MLC on Friday that they're going to be calling 2 new sister training leaders, so there will be 8 of us instead of only 6. It will be so good, since that way we'll each be in charge of 6 companionships instead of 8 or 9. We've all been trying to figure out whether or not we would be STLs until the end of our missions or if it would just be a temporary calling, but with the addition of 2 more it seems a lot more likely that I'll be an STL until I die. Perfect, since I love my calling ;)
In addition to the miracles, we definitely have had some really wild and awkward moments this week as well. Just for the record, when you're workin' in the hood and some guy asks if you have a boyfriend, the WRONG answer is "Nope!" (even if that's the truth!) Don't worry, I now have a witty response prepared in case someone asks me again. :)
Also...last week we had the BEST P-DAY OF MY LIFE! Oh my, it was a blast. We went to the science museum in Ft. Laud. First off, the science museum costs $14. And as excited as I was to go, I was telling Sister Steg that morning, "I really don't feel like paying $14 to go. I hope they have a 2-for-1 deal going on today." Anyway, we show up at the science museum and I was quite disappointed to see that there was no deal going on and the admission price was still $14. We were standing in line when this family behind us starts chatting with us. They asked us, "Are you nuns?" We explained that no, we were not, that we were missionaries. Then they were like, "Well, would you like a 2-for-1 admission coupon?" WOULD I EVER!!! I wish I could have seen my face. Pure bliss. I was so happy. And so I truly know that Heavenly Father answers prayers and gives us the desires of our heart, even when they're trivial :D I love Him so much!
Peace and blessings,
2-for-1 tickets!! Lovin life!
The only gator I've seen in Florida...and it was at a museum! :/
