Winter Miracles & Missionary Birthdays

"Hey everyone!

It's been a busy day. I was out buying winter clothes. Apparently it has already started snowing in Massachusetts! So I had to prepare myself for that. Also, we went bowling.

So anyway, this week was INCREDIBLE!! Amazing things are happening in the Massachusetts Boston Mission right now. We had an amazing Zone Conference with Elder Larry R. Lawrence (of the Seventy) on Friday. We are all PUMPED for November because we've set a mission goal to have 70 baptisms within the mission (even though 115 people have baptismal dates). The whole mission is going craaaazyy!! We're so excited! During the Zone Conference, Sister Lawrence gave an amazing talk about children of the house of Israel. She talked about the lost tribes, and at one point she got everyone who is in the tribe of Ephraim to stand. Myself and 5 other people awkwardly sat there while EVERYONE else stood up. Then she got the rest of us to stand! We had to say which tribe we were from. It was really cool. I'm the only one in Benjamin!

We have seen SO many miracles this week. Roxanne came to church for the first time in a year! She's getting closer and closer to baptism. She said "It feels right". So, we'll see!!! I just LOVE Roxanne. She's like a mother to me. She was concerned for myself and Sister Morgan yesterday because we weren't wearing coats (don't kill me Mom and Dad), but I informed her today that I bought a nice Winter coat and she said "Your American Mum is happy!". She's the best! :)

So, fun news of the weekIt was Elder Sutherland's 21'st birthday on Saturday so we had to make it one to remember! We started off the day by giving him a wake up call at 6:30am and singing "Happy Birthday", then for lunch we bought the Elders some Wendy's...which is fast food for those of you who don't know. And THEN later on we dropped off a nice birthday present at their apartment. We got him a picture frame with a picture of the 4 of us, a tiara, peanut butter cups, a face cloth with batman on it etc. All the stuff any 21 year old would want really! But this picture just shows the fabulous tiara! Isn't it wonderful?!

The photo they got framed for Suthy

Tiara!!

I'll be singing in the Norwich Ward Primary Presentation on Sunday the 23rd! I am pumped! It's going to be so fun. There's a huge Primary in this ward so it'll be great :P

Anyways, I love you all! Stay safe and stay strong :)

Love,
Sister Rebekah Barrett"
