So Happy!!!

Its been a great week in Billingham! I have a new companion and she is seriously an answer to my prayers! We get along so well and have had a blast so far and I feel like I have known her forever. I can't remember when I have felt this happy on my mission. I feel like myself!! It seems like Heavenly Father really wants me to enjoy and be happy the final months of my mission and I am so grateful! He truly cares about each of us and wants us to be happy, such a blessing.

Easter has been such a special time on my mission. I love talking to people we meet about it and sharing that Christ lives again! I love that Easter and spring happen at the same time and everything is coming back to life, it is a great representation of Christ coming back and resurrecting. We got to sing in town with our zone for Easter and it was so fun! 

2 of our friends came to church this Sunday and they loved it. They are both struggling mentally and socially at the moment and they both felt welcomed and accepted at church. This ward is great at helping people feel accepted. One of them called us that night and thanked us for the great day at church he had and for caring about him. I feel like when we can help people feel loved, it totally changes them. 

We got to go to an amazing musical Easter fireside in Newcastle on Sunday night with a recent convert. It was centered on our Saviour and how He lives today! A family of a sister from Norway came because she is finishing her mission and sang. They are like famous in Norway and it was amazing.

Also, Martin is going to the temple on Saturday and I am so pumped for him!!!! He is doing so well and has been loving church. He fits right in :) 

I hope you all have a great week!!
Love, Sister Stevens
