What a week. We have seen so many huge miracles this week. Our friend Domanique was baptized on Saturday and it was an amazing service. The second she stepped into the door, the room was filled with the Spirit and she began to cry.  Her mom raised her to never open the door to the Mormon missionaries but her mom was so excited for her to be baptized and wanted to be that support to her that she came. and felt the Spirit strongly. She came to church the next day and we gave her a book of Mormon. But It was incredible to see the countenance change with Domanique. She will be such a powerful convert and she is already planning on when she can go on a mission. She asked to give a talk after she was given the Holy Ghost and it was amazing to hear how the Lord had prepared her to find the church through amazing people. 
I will be staying here with Sister Tarullo and "killing" her! (This is her last transfer before she goes home.) I really love the area and we have some awesome plans for this next transfer so it's going to be great! 
Hope everyone is doing well. I've learned a lot this week about charity. in Moroni 7:48 it talks about how if we pray with all our heart to the Lord for this gift, that it will be given to us. God will give us opportunities to express love to others. He can enlarge our cup and give us so much more room in our heart to love. Charity is the pure love of Christ. And Christ suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and He is not puffed up, seeketh not His own, is not easily provoked, He thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, He beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, and He endureth all things. We can too. 
Have a great week!
