"So y'all are like flight attendants. God's flight attendants"

Hey y'all!!

Happy day-after-an-awesome-weekend-of-conference!! :)
This week, we had transfers and I picked up Sis Reese on Wednesday! Sis Reese served in Paper Mill at the same time as me and we spent Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's together. I got to catch up on how everyone is doing in that area and was the greatest tender mercy :) Sis Reese then told me a funny story. She said that when President called her that morning to release her from being a Sister Training Leader (basically a Sister Zone Leader. They go on exchanges with us and stuff) and told her that she'd be coming out here and I'd be her companion she responded with, "You mean... Sis Jacobs that trained Sis Marshall here in Paper Mill?" "Yes, that's the Sister Jacobs I'm talking about." She chucked the phone on the ground and exclaimed as only a missionary can, "Fetch, yeah!!" And then she heard President's voice from the phone... still lying on the ground, "Sister Reese?...what was that?" Haha. I died when she told me that :) Sis Reese is pretty great. She's like my tender mercy for this whole upcoming transfer :)
Of course conference is awesome. "May we ever be found doing the work of the Lord."
Elder Ballard has inspired me to share a weekly Preach my Gospel epiphany :) This weeks comes from a quote from Harold B. Lee on pg3 "The most important of the Lord's work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own homes." in connection with this quote from Joseph Smith on pg 12, "After all that has been said, the greatest and most important duty is to preach the Gospel." So... what if we put these two together and taught the gospel in our homes?! I know that this will help the work progress more than ever before. I don't know how the Lord wants you individually to accomplish this, but He does! Ask Him, and He will tell you. He's cool like that :)

These last couple of weeks have had kind of a lull as far as the work is concerned, but we are praying and working and it's gonna pick up!
Love y'all!! Have a happy week! :)
~Sister Jacobs.
