Discovering common ground

Sister Lena and I have not been meeting as often as we would like to because we have both been very busy. We have a great time when we see each other. Sister Lena always asks how I am doing in school and how my work and volunteering are going.

Last time we met at her house, and we had so much fun. I love talking to Sister Lena. I am getting to know her more every day. We always have something to talk about. Since we come from different religions, we love to share our experiences, and without fail, we discover that we have many things in common.

We will have the formal interview this week, and I am looking forward to it. Sister Lena is also very enthused. Not only will we do the interview, but we are also going to color eggs for Easter. I am very excited since I have never done that before.

Sister Lena is so inspiring, and I always look forward to our meetings.
