This area. I'm dying!! ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!! most of our area is actually in the foothills. one ward is just a small community up in the valley of the foothills where everything is perfect and nothing ever goes wrong. Its exhausting trying to be perfect hahahaa but look up Hidden springs on Google earth. the houses are MANSIONS!! but the members are amazing. So ready and willing to help. Boise 13th ward is WAY different. You still have some that are stupid rich, but it ranges all the way down to the three homeless shelters in our ward. this area is going to be AMAZING!! not much work going on currently, but no better time to tap into that potential than with a whitewash. we are ready and excited! Sister Rees is DARLING! two redheads taking over Boise!! We are going to light it on FIRE! Our mantra for this transfer is "Let's make it happen!" We can do whatever we want in this area. We create the culture and the we know that there are many miracles to be seen in the next couple of weeks. :) She is from Las Vegas (so was my trainer the first six weeks.. :) ) and has been out for six months. She spent all 6 in Jerome, so this is big city living again for her! She also attended BYU for a year after me, so i know ill be seeing her again:)
Our house is TINY!! hahahahaa we guessed about 15x20... This is Sister Rees laying on our floor. She's about 5 foot 2 so you can kinda see what its like based on her size hahahaa
Last night we met one of our investigators for the first time. His name is Carl Alexander and he lives at the Mission (men's homeless shelter). He is AWESOME! The sisters set a date with him for Feb 18. He really recognizes the Spirit. He has a pretty rough past, but is finding himself as he finds the Savior. We took what we learned in district meeting and applied it in our lesson with him. We read Alma 7 and it was a POWERFUL lesson. I really do believe that because of my time here, my nature has changed and I have become more like Christ. It comes easier now, because He has become a bigger part of who I am, to represent Him at all times. For that, I will be forever grateful.
happy days ahead
