WEEK 75-" The star of all valleys"- last transfers start off...Hope you had a great Halloween...we had fun at Trunk or treat and decorated the back of our truck to hand out candy ...we love the kiddos!

Transfer news!! I feel like we just did this like
2 seconds ago but somehow it's been 6 weeks....but anyway. Transfer
news is....I am staying here in Sheridan! Sister Jacoby will be my new
companion! I've never met her but I've heard such good things about
her! :) sister Wong is headed to Helena! It's going to be such an
amazing transfer and I'm so excited to spend this next transfer here
in Sheridan with the people here!! :)  ( mom adds her LAST transfer) 
So sorry it's a crazy week....we're in Gillette right now for zone
preparation day. And we've been packing Sister Wong all day. So not
much time to write. 

But the best part of the entire week was Leslie!!!
She got baptized this week. Gosh my heart is so full of joy and 

gratitude. It was so amazing to see the ward rally behind her and support her on the first few steps of this journey. Leslie looked just
so radiant and was beaming the entire time.


 I know that this gospel is true and that Leslie's choice to be baptized was just the beginning of
 many more amazing steps on this path back to our Heavenly Father.

Another amazing miracle was her family. She has
been praying that her choices to follow our Savior would bless her family for the better. So her daughter, granddaughter, grandson and
great granddaughter came to the baptism. And they felt the Spirit so strongly. Savannah, her granddaughter, posted on Facebook a picture
from the baptism and said she wants to start coming to church
This gospel truly blessed families!!

On Sunday was the temple dedication. It was just such a special
experience. It's been a long time since I've been to the temple....but because of the dedication
broadcast, our Sheridan church building became an extension of the Star Vally Wyoming temple. I am so so SOOO happy for everyone in the Wyoming temple district!! Such a miracle to
have a beautiful temple here in good ol'e Wyoming. I think it's very fitting that the temple was built in "the star of all valleys" as they
call it.  It truly was amazing to step foot in a house of the Lord for the first time in months. And what made it even more special is the fact that Leslie was right there by our side. Can life get any better?

She said she felt such a strong spirit and is already working toward going to the temple for baptisms as soon as possible and her endowment
a year from now. I can't express how blessed I feel to know her.
 Her example of faith, sacrifice and miracles have changed me. She is one incredible daughter of God.

This gospel truly is amazing. It blesses and changes lives.  But I am SOOO happy to be here serving in Sheridan and so
blessed to be serving the Lord. Have a fantastic week!!!
