New Transfer and New Beginings!

   I hope that all the mothers had a wonderful mother's day and that they all got a nice breakfast in bed! Mothers are the best and I want to thank every woman whether they are a mother or not for their influence on the world! It is amazing what one woman can do and it is even more amazing what a lot of righteous woman can do! Thank you for always being loving and caring and for your wonderful examples!
   This week was a little different than most, but it was still a wonderful week!
Monday: I spent my day rearranging the apartment so that we would have a study room. We also bought giant white boards to put on our walls so that we could be more organized! White boards are the best!
Tuesday: I sent Sister Murri off to Bay City! I spent the rest of my Tuesday with the Lansing Sisters and they are hilarious and I loved that I got to spend about 24 hours with them and we had some good adventures. I learned that I can sort of kind of slightly beat box and it is pretty sweet!
Wednesday: I got to go to the airport and pick up my companion Sister Morrison!!!!! It was so cool to be able to go to the airport! I'm pretty sure it was like a once in a life time opportunity! We then spent the rest of the time going over some stuff. We got to go with the assistants to MSU and do some personal contacting there which was really neat. We also got to stay the night at the mission home!
Thursday: We spent half the day in training. Sister Morrison was the only missionary to come out this transfer so it was just she and I who got the training. It was crazy cause I was in trainer training with just President Hess and the assistants! We also got to eat lunch with them which was pretty sweet!
Friday: We got to work!
Saturday: This week we were with out the car and we walked a ton this day! We were able to meet a lot of great people though! It was such a nice day and tons of people were outside doing yard work and it was great because people are just so much happier when it is sunny outside and they are willing to talk unlike during the winter time!
Sunday: We got to call home!!!!
Spiritual Thought: I think I am realizing now more than ever that the Lord really does qualify who he calls. I can really feel the Lord help me recognize my weaknesses and help me to strengthen them. The Lord really does know us better than we know ourselves. Remember that if you ever receive a calling you think you can't hold up to remember that the Lord has called you to that calling for a reason and that through Him all things are possible. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and all that he has done for me and all that I am able to do because of Him. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Love Always,

Sister Smith
