ALOHA!! I am in a new ward!! I love it so much!! I miss my last ward a ton, but I know I am meant to be here. I feel God's work move through me. It is really cool. I am now in the South Coast ward in the Newport Beach Stake. It covers a part of Costa Mesa and a part of Santa Ana. It is really cool. The ward is either Polynesian or Latino, so it rocks!! It also means that I don't know what anyone is saying. I think I need to brush up on my Spanish......
I have a new companion! Her name is Sister Nambukara. She is 22, from Sri Lanka and Indiana, went to BYU-I, and has been on her mission for 4 months. She is so stellar. Things are going to move forward!!
Sister Bingham is officially finished with her mission. She is done. I am so sad, but I know that everything has to end. Sister Hehl and I got to sing For Good at transfer meeting for her and for all those that left with her. It was really cool.
When I walked into the apartment for the first time, all I could see was snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. I was a little intrigued. Apparently the sisters that were there previously didn't bother to take them down. And for the Christmas music, well that was one of the few CD's that I had, and Sister N was cool with it, so we listen to Christmas music, like every day. It's great:)
We set a baptismal date!! We set it with this kid named Steven. He is 18. His sister is the only member in his family and she is on a mission in Peru, and the other sisters contacted him and he said he wanted to know what his sister was doing, so he started meeting with them!! So cool!! I love missionary work!!
Have a great week!!
This week's scripture is 3 Nephi 18:19-20
Love you all!!
Sister Kayla Haws
