IT'S A GIRL!!! :)

Well... it's already TRANSFER WEEK again and sadly, one of my best friends and treasured companions, Sister Conrad, will be leaving me :(.

Parting is such sweet sorrow...

I will miss her so much, but am excited for the opportunity I have to train!!! Yeah... that's right, in missionary terms I am pregnant and will be having a daughter SOON — haha! I will actually be meeting her tomorrow morning and I am pretty stoked!

And I absolutely love this area so I am super happy that I am staying :).

Great things have been happening here in Eastgate!!! This last week we have had a service opportunity practically everyday... ranging from working at the food pantry, to weeding, to painting walls! And despite lots of rain and opposition this week, we still saw some awesome miracles!

Two of the people we are working with, "D" and "S", are on date to be baptized on the 21st!! We met "D" through talking to the neighbors of a previous investigator, and "S" was a former investigator, and we have been working with them and they are both ready and wanting to take the next step of baptism — Woo hoo!! I am so thrilled that I have been blessed to be able to continue working with each of them this next transfer... They are truly amazing people whom I love so much!!

Friday we had an incredible meeting with our zone! We had a great discussion about our callings and how we are sharp tools in God's hands to share the Gospel with the world. We have some awesome zone leaders that led the discussion and it was super revelatory for me! The Spirit gave me several things to work on, and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to improve myself. Repentance is real!

We had kind of a funny experience on Saturday! Sister Conrad and I were in the middle of painting a room for a member when we got a call from the other missionaries in our district saying they had accidentally locked themselves out of the church, so they needed OUR church key to come ASAP and save them. Well... it was raining that day, so when we pulled into the church parking lot all of the missionaries started cheering! It was definitely one of the funniest things I have ever seen (maybe you had to be there to appreciate the moment... I don't know) — HaHa!

I hope you all have a blessed week ~

Love, Sister Feil
