My district this last transfer. I think this picture does well at describing us.
Hello my dear loved ones!

Okay, going to be honest. I don't have a lot to say this week. I have been racking my brain with what I could tell you about this week, but there has not been a lot that has been going on. This week was a lot of traveling, and exchanges and what not. But, two big pieces of news this week:

 First, I am staying in Limoges! Another six weeks. I was really happy when I got the call. Definitely felt like I was leaving because I have been here three transfers, but I really wanted to stay with Soeur C--. And voila! Wish granted. It honestly just feels like home here now. So I am really excited to have another transfer with all these people I just love so dearly. Especially my amazing companion! I really feel great about this transfer. I am not quite sure what it is. I always love the beginnings of transfers, because it is a great opportunity for a fresh start. And at the beginning of this one, I just feel really great about it. I feel like I have learned SO much my last five transfers. And even though I have sooo much more to go, so much more to learn, I feel like now is the time in my mission where I really just need to APPLY everything. Just really show my Heavenly Father that I am grateful for all that he has taught me and do the best work I can. I don't know if I explained that well. In is good.
The other awesome news of the week is that Co-- has a baptism date! March 22nd. Super excited about it. I really have a lot of confidence in him. He is progressing really well. He is already in 2 Nephi. And he is praying so much to know if the Book of Mormon is true. I had a really cool moment in the rdv when we set a date with him. We taught him with Fr--.  I am pretty sure you remember but Fr-- is the one that got baptized a couple transfers ago. Gosh, I just love her so much! She has done such an amazing job at helping us teach Co-- when she was all nervous about to begin with. But I just had a really cool moment, where we asked Co-- if he had prayed about a date. And he was still a little wishy-washy on why it was important to set a baptismal date. And Fr-- just jumped in and gave an amazing, beautiful testimony of her baptism. And how she had all this opposition. And how setting a date helped her. And then how her baptism was one of the most perfect days of her life.
I just felt so full of emotion. Because I was there with Fr-- through all of that. I saw her come back to the church and decide to get re-baptized. And then have a TON of opposition that I really feel like we worked through together. And then the beautiful day of her baptism.  And now there she is, testifying to our ami about what a beautiful experience it all was. And I got to hear her strong testimony, after having a front row seat to watching her gain that testimony.  It was just such a beautiful moment.
I feel so much love in my life right now. And I am going to do all I can just to even feel more. Because that is our focus as a mission right now. Love. Focusing on love. Honestly, I am so stoked about this. Because loving people is something I feel like I have always been able to do pretty well, and I am super excited to just work as HARD as I can to love everyone in my life.  And most importantly, to love my Savior.
I am so grateful to be able to work side by side with my Savior in this labor of love.
I wish I could describe to you what kind of happiness it brings, when my Savior and Heavenly Father just let me feel for even just a split second of the love they have for me.  It is incredible.
I hope you know how much they love you. IF you don't, take a second to ask our Father in Heaven. He will let you know.
Have a wonderful week!
