Este Noembrie...UAU! (It's November...WOW!!)

Buna, dragi familia si prietene!  Sunteti binecuvantarile mare!  (Hello, dear family and friends! You are all a great blessing!!)

The transfer is almost over! On Saturday or Sunday, we'll find out what's happening next transfer! And in two days, I'll hit my eight month mark, from when I entered the MTC!!! UAU!!!

A fost o saptemana forte minunata! (It was a very wonderful week!) Happy Halloween, by the way!  Am avut o patrecera forte tare pe Joi, forte mult oamenii a fost accolo! (We had the coolest party on Thurs, so many people were there! Members and many students from English came, we carved pumpkins, painted faces, played games, it was so much fun! We met two new cute girls named Adela and Elaina, we're hoping to meet with them later this week! English class is such a blessing for missionaries, I'm so grateful for it, because we've been able to have wonderful conversations and classes and meet so many amazing new friends! We actually meet with three of them yesterday: Alexandra, Andrei, and their friend Ioana! Alexandraand Ioana are our age, Andrei is sixteen, they love music and learning, and they are progressing super well! They are super excited to learn more about Joseph Smith, because he had the same question that they do: why are there so many churches when there's only one God. When the three of us heard this...see Alma 32:6 (“And now when Alma heard this, he turned him about, his face immediately towards him, and he beheld with great joy; for he beheld that their afflictions had truly humbled them, and that they were in a preparation to hear the word.”)! The Lord has truly prepared them to hear the gospel, and I want to prepare us that we may be worthy to have the Spirit in our lessons, because that is what's most important! After that lesson, the three of us were so happy and Sora Kitchen said, "A mission really is the greatest decision you could make because you learn to look outside yourself!" I've been thinking a lot about this, and I too believe and am thankful that this truth. I will work hard to be the missionary that the Lord wants, because there's nowhere else I'd rather be than here and no one else I'd rather be than a servant the Lord can count on. Like President Monson, I always want the Lord to know that if He needs an errand run, [Hannah Lunt] will run it for Him." I am so blessed to be here as a servant who becomes better by losing herself to Christ and His gospel. I am so thankful for amazing companions who have taught me what it means to be a good teacher in word and example and I am so thankful for my mission president and all the missionaries and members and all the people here. I am so thankful for my Savior that through Him, I can not only become better and others too, but 'even as He is.' I know this is true! Va iubesc!

Dragoste,
