So i want to climb to a rooftop and shout this story to everyone i know, but I can't so I'll just post it here and hope it reaches SOMEONE!
My best friend was supposed to report to the MTC yesterday, and I have been having a terrible time becuase I didn't get to say goodbye to her (she's been with her parents, who are serving as mission pres. in mexico, until her MTC date) Last night I went to ward temple night and was invited to be the woman for the witness couple, and i was so terrified. All i could do was plea with the Lord for patience and peace. In the prayer circle, the ordinance worker said the most beautiful prayer, which of course brought me to tears, blessing the missionaries that they would be successful and happy. Afterwards on my way home (after yet 2 more gruesome public displays of emotions at coldstone with half my singles ward) I was thinking that if I needed to hear from her, I would and that it would happen if I had a chance left still. I got home, and noticed I had missed a call... She got delayed on her flight to SLC from Mexico and is getting to the MTC right this minute. I got to talk to her and come to find out... She has already converted 3 generations on women in a family in mexico while on splits with some sisters, and her flight was late so she could see them all be baptized by her father (the mission president.)
What an amazing evening!
