It Rains a Lot in Washington!

Tracting in the rain.

First off.
Here is my mailing address:

Sister Savanah Lynn Frisch
Washington Vancouver Mission
2223 NW 99th St
Vancouver, WA 98665

Second thing. I had my first baptism on Saturday and it was incredible! It was for a cute 10 year old. Her mom is super inactive and didn't even come to the baptism, but her dad is starting to come back. After the baptism, he said he wants to work towards becoming an elder and being endowed. So, that is way cool! We are working a ton with less actives and part-member families.

Third thing. Transfers were this week and we have 23 new missionaries. We have a super young mission- over 75% have been out for less than a year. There were also at least 6, 6 week old trainers and most everyone else is a 3 month old trainer, so we are the young training the younger in missionary work.

We took out two sisters, so here we are at the mission home.
 Sister Tauala and I took out these new sisters.  They flew out from the MTC Tuesday morning.

Here is a quote I really loved from Elder Uchtdorf's talk "The Love of God" from general conference in 2009.

"Our Father in Heaven has given us, His children, much more than any mortal mind can comprehend. Under His direction the Great Jehovah created this wondrous world we live in. God the Father watches over us, fills our hearts with breathtaking joy, brightens our darkest hours with blessed peace, distills upon our minds precious truths, shepherds us through times of distress, rejoices when we rejoice, and answers our righteous petitions.
        He offers to His children the promise of a glorious and infinite existence and has provided a way for us to progress in knowledge and glory until we receive a fulness of joy. He has promised
us all that He has.
        If all that is not enough reason to love our Heavenly Father, perhaps we can learn from the words of the Apostle John, who said, “We love him, because he first loved us.”

 This is Kailie, the girl who was baptized this last Saturday.

This stove is from the 1950's.

We met this lady with a bunch of plants in bird cages. It was rad.
