October 17th-24th, 2016
Hellooooo family! We had a really great week. So much has happened!
John came to church again! I was so shocked. Justin is doing okay - he is still battling a lot of addictions. Sonja is doing good - adorable as ever. Her mom Heike is doing good too. I just love that whole family. We found a new family! Chrissy, Hunter and Haley. Can't remember if I told ya'll about them last week or not. Basically we are teaching really cool people and it is depressing that the transfer is coming to an end! Only 2 more weeks.
Things I learned this week:
-Heavenly knows his children. We had president interviews this week and President Bateman taught me something that was a direct answer to my prayers. I told him through teary eyes because I was so shocked at how direct it was, and something I had only prayed about privately to my Heavenly Father. His response: "that only came to me this morning, and I haven't shared it with anyone else. It was for you. Heavenly Father knows you Sister Broadhead."
-Life is better with a companion. Heavenly Father has blessed me with some of the sweetest companions around. I love that I have gotten to serve with 9 (so far) amazing sisters. God did not intend for us to be alone, I'm grateful to share the experiences I have with someone else. Some day the companion I have will be eternal. (gulp)
-We choose who we are, who we become, and what we do with our lives. Agency is a powerful thing. We can choose how to respond to each situation, good or bad. We are not a result of our circumstances. We can choose to be Christlike, full of love, obedient, worthy, happy. Who we are lies in our hands!
-for every door I knock in this mission, a convert is baptized in Mexico. (true fact)
Life has been good. We are happy and healthy. I have been reflecting a lot on my 6 months here in Fenton. It has been so amazing. The midwest will always be hallowed ground to me. Love ya'll! Thanks for all you do! See you!!! (double gulp) The church is true, the Lord loves YOU!
