Dallas Letter 12/12/16

This whole week has been an adventure of being a trainer. I forgot what it was like to be a new missionary which Sister DiPietro reminded me and even brought me back to memory lane. I made sure that my new Sister did not have any crazy experiences our first week like praying with a homeless man (old story). I have felt that I have learned so much in one week about how to rely on the Lord more but also to teach in a very different aspect then normal. Sister DiPietro is from Tewksbury Massachusetts and is convert of 4 yrs. I love her so much and I am glad to be her companion. 
I was able to decorate our apartment with many lights which was super fun. The only problem I had was that I could not get the St Nick lights to stay on the wall. If you look at our floor closely you can see a ton of glitter everywhere because of the many times it fell on me. 
Our mission is reading the Book of Mormon with the goal of coming to know the Savior. I learned in my reading last week that the Savior prays for us to Heavenly Father (3 Nephi 17: 17, 20-21). It touches my heart to know that the most perfect person is willing to take time to pray for me. As a missionary, I pray for my investigators and like the Savior, I feel joy when they act on that faith.
I love you and can't wait to see your beautiful faces in 13 days! (Christmas day video conference)
