Just so you know first, we are moving apartments! We will still be in the same complex, but our new address is 1924 West Pensacola Street #113, Tallahassee FL 32304 :) So really it is basically the same, just a different apartment number. Our lease is coming to an end, and they are moving us to the one that they just updated the lease for! So we will be moving this next week, which is a tender blessing because this next week is Spring Break on campus and it will be DEAD because everyone is leaving!! So we are thankful that we will have something to do :) Something Good: Well this week has been honestly SO long!! We have had some awesome lessons, but sometimes weeks are just long and this week was definitely one of them, but all good things! Two great highlights with Jose! On Monday we had a lesson about baptism!! At the end we asked him, when he came to know the truth of the Church and the Book of Mormon, would he be baptized? And he said Yes! It was amazing! So we are doing a lot of praying for him to come to know the Church to be true! He has been to church quite a few times now and loves the Book of Mormon! Jose is definitely a Miracle, and we are just seeing so many tender mercies with him! We had a great lesson about the W.O.W. (Word of Wisdom) and he took it SO well. He told us he was going to drink coffee before his trip home, but after our lesson he was all like..."Well I guess that is not going to be happening!" Jose is just awesome. :) We had a great lesson with one of our Gators named Joy. We talked to her about Temples, and she really wants to go to the temple. Again - the Spirit of Elijah - it is a real thing! Campus is just a great place. Sometimes the fear of man will hit me, but this week it was just great! "I fear no man." I really do believe if we are doing our part, the Lord will bless us in ways we can not imagine, because Heavenly Father is a God of Love. He loves us all. We just gotta love Him, too. <3 Something Funny: Have you ever had a time where you pray for patience...? Well if not, I don't know if you will want to, because you will be tested! So a funny story that just happened today! We went shopping and it took us a while since we had to get a few things Well we are checking out and the guy who is checking us out TAKES FOREVER! Let's just say it took 18 minutes to check out,...oh just imagine my face, we all know when I get hungry or just annoyed, I am not happy. I just wanted to die. Anyway, I am learning a lot of patience, even with silly things like that too. It's all good things ;) Just so funny that when we pray for things that we need to work on, God will HELP us. Oh yes!!! Something Learned: This week the sentence "We are all children of God" really hit me, we have about 40,000 students on campus that sometimes the fear of man overcomes me and I just wanna die, but this week, I don't know what it was, but for the first time for me, I wasn't scared of what people were going to think of me. I wasn't scared to invite people to learn, because the Spirit really let me feel that EVERYONE is a child of God. Everyone matters, Every person is worth a shot. I am super grateful for moments when the Spirit teaches us small and simple things that we should always know and remember. D&C 18:10 :) I love y'all !!!! Stay Sweet and make Jesus Decisions! <3, Sister Nielson P.S. Sorry, I took like no pictures this week....
