This week someone told me they saw in a vision I was going to marry a mission president and that desobediente missionaries will fear me, so you bet it was an interesting week!
On Tuesday I had divisions with Hermana Jensen. She is Hermana Aspitia's new hija, so in mission terms that means she is literally my "hermana." Hermana Jensen has about three weeks in the mission and speaks a little spanish, so it was all on me. It was a good day, but also a little trip down memory lane. I remember feeling exactly how she felt those first few weeks. Ah, to be a greenie again.
Also I learned how to do the latino snap with my fingers this week. If you served a mission in South America you understand exactly what I'm talking about.
This week I saw the song "When I Am Baptized" for our noche de blanca. I sang it in both english and spanish. It was so fun! Lots of haitianos got baptized and when they heard the english they were super excited.
We also had interviews with President Woodward. He is SO awesome!
This week I taught these little girls the song "I am a Child of God." They loved it and the spirit was so strong! One of them wrote me a note (pictured below). It was so cute! I think she meant to say "you are the most beautiful." Not really sure.
This week I read in Luke 7: 37-50. Go read it right now! It's my new favorite bible story. "Thy faith hath saved thee, go in peace." I love how this woman literally washed Christ's feet with her tears and cleaned his feet with her hair.
Love Hermana Brinkerhoff
