This infinite love and wisdom became the topic of discussion in a lesson we had this past week with a woman named Loretta who struggles with smoking. We have been meeting with her for about a month now, and this last week she expressed how she was struggling. Loretta began smoking and drinking in an attempt to snuff the emotional trauma that accompanied the murder of her son. Without the proper support, she was caught in a downward spiral of depression, isolation, cigarettes and alcohol. This last month she has been completely sober, which unfortunately left her mind open to the reality of her sons passing. However, Elder Hannesson and I had the opportunity to then share with Loretta the Plan of Salvation. We showed her the Easter video put out by the church and promised her that she and her son would be reunited again. No goodbye is forever, no loss permanent. The spirit was so strong in the lesson and I had never seen Loretta so vibrant and full of life. She even gave us the rest of her cigarettes! I'm super pumped for what he Lord has in store for Loretta.
In other news, this week we got FREE LAUNDRY!!! This is the first time my whole mission that I haven't had to pay to wash my clothes. It feels pretty good. What hasn't felt as good is the amount of rain we have gotten lol I love the rain, I just don't love it as much when it soaks into your clothes and you're outside where the wind is blowing. Transfers are coming up this next week, and there is a pretty good chance I could be getting transferred. I have mixed feelings about it, but I may not move as well. For P-day today we might play some Rugby!!! Can't wait.
Anyway love you all, have a great week!
