Lead Me, Guide Me

Things have gotten real crazy in a week! First off, I was transferred to open up the Des Moines East Zone with Elder Spackman, who is from Salem, Idaho! We are both brand new zone leaders in a brand new area working with a brand new zone, so if there is something that we are not lacking, its experience haha so we are trying to figure things out still but things are going great and we have confidence in our zone and the Lord :) Everything happens for a reason! So we serve in the Des Moines5th Branch which is an all Spanish-speaking branch. We cover all of the Spanish-spaking people in Des Moinesalong with some Hermanas (Spanish-speaking sister missionaries). Pray for us as we try to manage the new work load we have on our shoulders!
On a more happier note, Wednesday night, before transfers, Karla and Judy (Irene's little sisters) were baptized in Muscatine! It was such a sweet baptismal service and the Spirit was felt very strongly. Irene gave a talk on the Gift the Holy Ghost and talked about how it brightened her life. She talked about how she is happier and looks forward to everyday and the challenges they each bring. She concludede by realizing that with the gift of the Holy Ghost, she feels the love that our Heavenly Father has for her very strongly and quite often. This helps her deal with the difficulties that life throws at her and face them determined to be happy and to learn from them! I know that this is all true. When we pray sincerely, we can feel the love that our Creator and Father has for us through the feelings and power of the Holy Ghost. I love you all and am so grateful for each of you and the love you have shown towards me. It is that love that I draw upon to keep working each day and be happy when I could very easily complain and be depressed. So thank you and I love you!
