I Love being a Missionary!

WOW what changes are coming and so many things are happening I cannot believe it at all.  First last Tuesday Kelley Moore was baptized by her recently converted Husband Jonathon Moore that was great and she was so happy and she felt the spirit and had a smile on the whole day even the whole week I love this family so much it hurts but so worth it.  The good news is that my twelve weeks are up of training and transfer are this coming week and I know that I will be in Florence for two more transfers but me staying in Florence for two more transfers means that I will be training a new sister missionary fresh from Provo so yes I just got done with twelve weeks and yes I get to start it all over again.  Our president called us on Saturday telling Sister Allen that she would be leaving and thanked her for her service in Florence and then asked if I would train next two transfers.  There are so many emotions and I ask for all your prayers to help me.  It is a scary thing to be a trainer only after finishing up my training but I know that I have been called and asked so I will do it and will love it I am excited to train and I know many miracles will happen just as they have happened for my training.  The bad news is that sadly Sister Allen is leaving me and Florence.  This area will not be the same without her it will not be worse but it will not be the same we have worked so hard and have had many miracles but I know that it is her time to leave and my time to take control and lead this area to the best of my ability.  Lately I have been thinking like crazy focusing on how I am going to train what I need to know and remember  I think of my fears that I have but then I pray and ask for help and I feel comfort and peace.  I know this is the Lords work and that he knows the whole plan and he has goals for the next two transfers that my new companion and I will accomplish.  I am so glad to be in Florence for three more months I love this area so much.  I love this gospel and I have seen first-hand how it can change lives especially families the joy and happiness the Moores have in their home is something they did not have before the gospel it has brought them closer together.  It is interesting being a missionary the feelings and experiences you have that are indescribable  that the only way to know it is to experience it there is nothing like it .  I love you all and thank you for your prayers and continue to ask for them I love you and pray for y'all as well.

Hello from Florence, SC

Hello hello hello from Florence South Carolina!!! I love being a missionary!! People are always telling us how much they respect us for what we do but, it is so worth it and I will never have any regret.  My training is almost complete time is sure flying it does not feel like I have been here for twelve weeks but it has and now I am almost done training crazy. I am excited to see what happens for the rest of my mission and I cannot wait to see who I will become right now I feel like a completely different person but I love who I am becoming.  This past week nothing great happened just that Kelley Moore wants to be baptized by her recently baptized husband on Tuesday I am so happy and so is she loves this gospel so much and wants to be an official member of the family.  The Moors feel so at home when they are in church and the members are the best at making them feel at home.  So on Saturday we got permission to watch Pres. Monsoons Bday celebration at 9:00 p.m. so we went to the moores and watched with Kelley since Jonathon was at work but it was a blast and so much fun to get to be together.  I am amazed at how much fun it is be a missionary to be with people and to laugh with them and to talk with them about the gospel there is no greater fun than that. When we were teaching an investigator Wendy we were teaching her about the Restoration and she constantly would be telling us "oh that make sense “or "Yeah I understand" but yeah it’s funny how the gospel is true and makes sense and fills the holes that other churches and religions have.  I love all the other churches and I have grown to respect and love them and it is sad when they don't seem to think the same about us but we just go on and endure and it is fun everyday there is never a dull moment and there is never an easy moment either but it all is helping me become who I need to become not who I want but who I need to become. Thank y'all for everything letters and prayers I truly hope this letter finds you all well and happy I hope all is well I love you all and know y'all are in my prayers.

Love Sister Browning
