Gueeeeeeeess what? I'll be staying in St. Ignatius and training a new missionary! *EXCITEMENT, PANIC AND MIXED EMOTIONS* The area was split, so Sister Rammell is going to Missoula to be a Sister Training Leader (STL), and they are putting ELDERS in Ronan. That was a surprise!

First off, I am so excited that the area split! This area was SO ready for two sets of missionaries. And I'm even more excited that Ronan will get Elders (those bunk beds aren't going to last long. And the hot pink sheets and cat posters everywhere are sure to be a hit!) hahaha. I'm going to miss Ronan a lot. It'll be good to see the work progress in Mission though! They will get the work moving there in ways that Sister Rammell and I couldn't. We saw the work in St. Ignatius take leaps and bounds this week and I can't wait to continue it with my new companion! She's coming to the best area in the mission. :) I am a little bit scared to be a trainer, but I know it's going to push me to be the best missionary I can be.

I want to tell you a little bit about the people we are teaching in St. Ignatius. We have one lady on date for baptism, E. She's this great little 70 year old lady. :) I first met her my first week in the area. We went to her for referral in the area-she’s related to everyone here. She didn't want to hear our message, but she would send us to family members who she thought needed some help. We did that for about a month, and then decided that she was more open to listening to the lessons. We asked if we could do a scripture study with her one day, she said yes. We continued to meet with her and ended up sharing the first three lessons with her and inviting her to baptism! She came to church this last week. She's the first investigator we've had coming to church in a loooooong time. It was overwhelming for her, but the ward was great with fellowshipping her.

R is another person we're teaching. He is studying the Book of Mormon a lot because he wants to be able to tell people if it's true or not and have real evidence for it. I was praying every single day that I would be able to stay here for a while so that I would be able to teach them. And my prayers are being answered. :) I am here to teach R and his wife S. I know that. And I want to do everything I can to help them receive the restored gospel. 

I am so happy that I've been able to see the work hasten in this area. Sister Rammell has been a great trainer and it came as no surprise to me that she was called as a Sister Training Leader. She is exactly obedient and completely dedicated to her mission and to accomplishing God's purposes. I'll be forever grateful for her example to me and the foundation she set for me on my mission.

I love being a missionary. I love this area. Miracles are happening here in St. Ignatius and Ronan! We saw so many miracles this week. I was brought to my knees in tears multiple times because of how grateful I was to see my prayers being answered! The work is progressing here! The smoke has cleared! IT RAINED! Happy, happy, happy!
