Staying in Savage Mill!!!!

Hello everyone thanks for tuning in for another week of Sista Swisha as a missionary in ghetto baltimore. just kidding i live in one of the most expensive counties in the country. its really nice here. Happy transfer week! so funny story... i was so sure i was leaving the Savage Mill ward that i packed up all my shoes. well phone calls came today and i am staying in savage mill!!! woo hooo!! but sis hollis is leaving:( she is going off with a different sister. but good news! I am training again!! woo hoo! i would love to train for the rest of my mission if i could! well by the end of next transfer, i will have been in savage mill for 6 months! that is sooo awesome. i feel like a member of the ward. there are so many families that i am so close to :) i absolutely love it! Sister Jimmy called me today to see if I was getting transferred and when i told her i wasnt she cheered! she is so cute. i dont know what i would have done if i had to leave my savage mill ward. ok great news every one! today sister hagedorn took us for pedicures!!!! woo hoo! it felt amazing and i dont feel like as big of a hobo now. :) we also went to breakfast with dan and beth today. what a fun day!! lots of packing going on tho :( i dont want to lose sis hollis but i know that she will be my friend forever! after all she knows me too well haha. we had an amazing last week together tho! we met a ton of less-actives that we have been trying to get a hold of for months! we just saw so many miracles this week. this is going to be a short email because i dont remember too much. i am excited to be an auntie!!!! wooo hoo!!!! i can hardly contain my excitement. we had Bethanie's birthday dinner with her which was fun and she has the same birthday as my sister! we also had the ward picnic on saturday night which was way too much fun. we played ultimate frisbee in  our skirts! haha the elders played basketball in their suits! missionaries are dorks! well i will leave you all with some of the thoughts i have been having this week. i have been thinking a lot about becoming the person who Heavenly Father wants me to become. i was wondering how i can do this. then i was reading in my studies and realized that all we need to do is act with charity or the pure love of Christ. as long as we act as Christ would and love everyone and serve them we will become who God wants us to be. What a great thing to think about! We just need to love with all our hearts and God will do the rest. i love being a missionary and having 24/7 to serve others and help them com closer to Christ. I know that this Gospel makes me soooo HAPPY and there is nothing i love doing more than sharing it with EVERYONE!!!! I cannot wait to pick up my new companion and to see her grow and to see myself grow this transfer. serving a mission is hard but it is worth it. i cannot imagine my life without a mission. i definitely had to serve to keep up with my amazing family. what a blessing serving is to me. man i know i say this a lot but i LOVE being a missionary. :) MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!!
