devote all thy service in Zion .. ALWAYS ! [03.01.10]


3 John 1:13-14
"I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee:"
"But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face."

THE END. see you Friday, March 5, 2010 @ 2pm !

sweet reunion 2010 here i am !

joking. but what if that is all i wrote ! isn't that a GREAT scripture ! i love it. thank you e. wood !

so on to the REALNESS of the FINAL DAYS as SISTER WARNER !

life has been GREAT. full of joy and working hard. i swear we barely get time to sleep. we lie our heads down and the next minute the alarm is going off. where does the time go ? TO THE WORK OF THE LORD !

when i left i chose a scripture that related to me [with the help of a friend named aaron ! thank you.]

Doctrine & Covenants 24:7-8
"For thou shalt devote all thy service in Zion; and in this thou shalt have strength.
"Be patient in afflictions, for thou shalt have many; but endure them, for, lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days."

it helped me to know i was never going to be alone in this great task that lay before me. i knew there would be rough times but i also knew b.c. the Lord promised that He would be with me and i would have strength to keep going. it doenst stop here in the WISCONSIN. i will devoted all my service in Zion .. ALWAYS !

we are on to a NEW week and a NEW TRANSFER .. this time i know it will be A LOT warmer where i go !

this last week was amazing and i just LOVE love LOVE being in the service of the Lord. it truly doesnt get any better.

* district meeting in MONROE this week ! we had a fun time making a spaghetti lunch ! the elders made desert and it was great ! it was nice to just eat lunch at the church and talk more about our areas !

* JENNY CAME BACK & CALLED US ! she left town and then her phone was disconnected but she is back so we got to see and teach her !

* r.w. williams. i got to say goodbye and take a picture. he calls me SHORTY all the time. he is 6'3" though ! i wish i could report he is doing better .. we have been trying to rescue him, he was just baptized in october and then stopped coming in november sometime and told us he promised Jesus he wouldnt step foot back into the church. we reminded him of the promises he made at baptism but he just doesnt get it. we love him and only the Lord knows !

* HIGHLIGHT WAS ELDER L. TOM PERRY SPEAKING TO US.
the sad part was that we were allowed to go out to milwaukee. e.perry didnt want anyone traveling over an hour b.c. of weather so only milwaukee peeps got to go BUT we did get to be there thanks to our mission president genius and his computer skills. he got a camera and EVERYONE around the mission watched it through the internet projected on a wall. it was a stream line video and it was good. my lil' pluim gave the opening prayer and it was amazing.

it truly was inspiring and uplifting. it grounded me more firm in the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

* that night my PANG KOU took us out for sushi ! it was sister b.johnsons first time and it was oh so yummy ! i LOVE sushi. i got to say goodbye to her. she has come such a long way in the past year in being baptized and continuing to build her faith.

02.25.10
* the BEST lesson with our SHYLINA. we taught her the PLAN OF SALVATION as she was in it. it was so cool. the spirit was so strong. tears were shed. the need for the atonement in each of our lives was confirmed again and it was beautiful. we set a tentative baptismal date with her for the end of march but it was her spring break so we had to leave it at that and get back to the drawing board of when her baptism should be ! but she wants it !

* i found out that night that I AM A GRANDMA AGAIN ! MY BABY GIRL SISTER BLACK IS TRAINING ! she is gonna have a girl ! she is going to train in the northwoods of wisconsin in RHINELANDER. its was close to the UP ! she is gonna be AMAZING. i love you my sister black.

02.26.10
* what a good day of when you make plans to see people and sometimes things get cancelled but then the Lord puts the right people in your path at the right time. it was great. we also had beth with us half the day and it was perfect ! i love following the spirit and being guided !

* we had lunch with papa and mama nolte ! i love living with them. we are lucky !

* watching THE TESTAMENTS with shylina ! she loved it. got a better understanding and visual of the book of mormon and the bible and how they work hand in hand !

02.27.10
* BETH WITH US ALL DAY ! that girl is stellar and is such a good little missionary !her testimony is solid.

* teaching SHYLINA with beth and setting a SOLID baptismal date with her of MARCH 20, 2010 ! she has the faith and so do we ! she is amazing. thank you ethan for inviting her to church with you !

* we had a great SPORTS NIGHT with mad 3 & mad 4 and there were so many youth there. solid opprotunity for them and their friends to have something fun to do on a saturday night and they DO bring there friends. we got a potential and that was cool ! and plus dodgeball is way fun !
