I won't lie, when I got the little slip of paper saying that Hilary was going to be my new companion I was a bit intimidated. I didn't know Hilary all that well, and I wasn't really sure that we'd be able to really become friends. At first I struggled with wanting to go on our monthly visits. But soon, I looked forward to them. I enjoyed spending time with Hilary and I loved getting to know the girls we taught a little better each month. All too so on our companionships were changed but I still stayed friends with Hilary. I began spending time with her and her roommates and they accepted me as a "fake" roommate.
Yesterday, Hilary was married in the Idaho Falls temple. I was thrilled that she invite me to come to Idaho to be there outside the temple and for the reception. I am grateful for the visiting teaching program, it truly is a blessing in the lives of the women in the church. I am grateful that I was able to find an "instant friend" through it.
