I'm being emergency transferred up to Paso Robles and will be serving with Hermana Shepherd again!
Most important things first. My new address is:
Hermana Alyssa Clark
1106 Alamo Creek #5
Paso Robles, CA 93446
So this week was obviously very interesting. Hermana Carbajal is heading home, as is Hermana Shepherd's companion. So I'm going up north to fill the gap. I'm super sad to be saying goodbye to Hermana Carbajal. She's such a tender lamb. She rocks. I have learned so much from being her companion and from her example.
I'm also going to miss Simi Valley. It's crazy how fast you can fall in love with people and places. Goodbyes are never easy.
These last two months I have learned more than ever before that the Savior truly is our companion. He is with us in every moment. We never need to feel alone. We can access our Father in Heaven and the healing and comfort of the Atonement through prayer. We can receive the enabling power of that incomparable gift through the confirmations of the spirit and gentle whisperings.
I know that God's plan is always better. He's in the details of our lives. He truly knows everything. We can leave our burdens at His feet.
I feel peace about this change. It's hard to give up members and investigators and companions, but I feel peace. It will all be okay. This is the Lord's church and His gospel. It's the same no matter where we are. It's the same no matter who teaches it. This is the truth. I know it.
I love you all mucho!
Have a good week!
