Co za Piękny Dzień!!

Dzień Dobry, rodzina! It is great to write to you from this beautiful MTC!! The Spirit is seriously so strong here! I can't tell you what a blessing it is to be part of the Lord's army! I love my district! My companion is Siostra Sloan and the rest of the district is Siostra Larcade, Siostra Gustafson, and Starzy Cowley. 

Our investigator is Jacek, and he is a student who wants to be a better person and have a closer relationship with his family. We have been able to teach him about prayer, the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and the Restoration. It was hard to convey our feelings to him, but the Spirit was so strong in our lessons! Tomorrow will be our last lesson with him. 

Being here has taught me that we need to go through the fundamentals like Jesus Christ did, and sometimes things won't go smoothly or quite the way we planned, but those terrible feelings will pale in comparison to joy we will feel in having a close relationship with Heavenly Father. May we always be standing in holy places! It is mind blowing how close our district has become in less than a week! Losing Siostra Sloan was a huge blow, but I know that she will be able to work through her trials and help her family through theirs! She is so amazing and strong! The other day, we were singing "There is Sunshine in My Soul Today" after she left. We are still recovering, but Siostra Sloan was meant to be here, even if it was so short. She is coming back in 6 months to the same mission though, and just as she will move forward, so must our district. 

This Christmas, I would like you to think about what you can do to be a light in other peoples' lives, whether it be through service, or providing a kind word or two. Thank-you all so much for your wonderful letters! They bring joy to my soul!

Co za Piękny Dzień- What a beautiful day!
